[TVXQ! Express] “Send them your L♥ve” – Changmin’s Birthday Card ♥

Hello dear TVXQ! Express readers,

February 18th is here!! It’s our deer Changmin‘s 29th BIRTHDAY \(*> w <*)/

Happy birthday Changmin!!! We hope you have a good time with your friends, and may all your dreams and wishes come true!
We are looking forward to see you again in 2017 O(≧∇≦)O


Just like before, today we would like to inform all the dear ones who have participated in our Changmin Birthday Card Project, that our card has arrived safely at the korean post office! Just like when it was Yunho’s, it seems that Changmin is on a leave now so we can’t expect him to check it out until he returns haha

Hopefully he likes it, and enjoys the journey through your beautiful messages~

Below, we took some photos of the card’s final look! It is similar to the one we designed for Yunho’s in which the card symbolizes our TVXQ Express train!
It consists of a main card, the train’s engine with Changmin, which also serves as the container for the rest of the card, and then a chain of strings of smaller sets of cars that carry around 40 fan messages in total again~

When you do something twice, it ought to get better, right! This time round we had more time than before to follow our original design sketches and so we improved some little things here and there… It doesn’t mean we were safe from accidents ; ;! We will point them out under each photo for you~


Front. The Card with all contents displayed. Here you can see that we have trimmed the train cars along the edges instead of cutting it in round shapes, something we couldn’t do on time for Yunho’s card.

Our message, where unexpected things happened..

The message card… umm, now set down please and let us tell you shortly the story about these extra cute little red hearts we have decorated the card with.
Normally, before we started making these hand made cards, we have experimented with different glues and colorful papers to make sure they don’t stain or curve the card paper. When the best was decided, we went ahead and used them. Changmin’s card looked all nice and neat. After leaving it resting for hours, and when it was time to head to the post office to send it, we took a final peak inside just to check. We have never expected to find out that the back cover glue had stained the message in the front with the red paper color ( ;_;)
There was no time to re-do it, and we were out of some of the materials. It was not fun ; _ ;!! Luckily, though, we had a set of color pencils around (because initially, we were planning to write with them on their cards but we dropped it because of time). We took a red color pencil and started drawing hearts on these stains, adding a little more to  make it not stand out (> v <;;). It looks perfect doesn’t~ now we challenge you to figure out where the stains are hiding hahaha



Back. In Yunho’s card the cars’ back view was the same image as the front. Here we have seen how easily the cars move around and mix, so we decided to make a face-less view on the back cover to make it easier to know where to start reading.


Here you can see how we arrange the train cars inside before we close the card~


Lastly, we would like to thank everyone who have participated and those who have helped making this year’s project possible in anyway! It was a short notice for everyone including ourselves, but we have enjoyed it thoroughly! We hope you have liked the results, and we hope Yunho and Changmin like and enjoy them too!


Many thanks,

TVXQ! Express

We are T!
