#HappyTaehyungDay! | For BTS V Cupsleeves Event Participants

Wednesday, December 30, 2020

First of all.... HAPPY TAEHYUNG DAY!!!

During initial planning of the Happy Taehyung Day Box, I was already leaning towards the Vintage Mail concept. Since it will arrive just in time for the holidays, I wanted the package to have that fuzzy ol’ Christmas gift vibe you get through snail mail.

Think receiving a box (some a bit squeezed from traveling with gazillion other holiday packages! πŸ˜… Sorry!!! πŸ˜–), then feeling the nice cool breeze outside as you greet Mr. Postman. Then you head in to pour yourself a cup of hot cocoa before opening the present, thick jazzy Christmas tunes fill the air….you get the picture.   

So I started designing postcards, postal stamps, scrapbook pages, even a group polaroid with Starry Night border (one of Tae’s favorite painting!). Since it’s a throwback feast, I also added in a photo strip featuring Kim Taehyung through the years. Choosing which pic to add was hard, but discovering treasure troves of V's baby photos reminded me of his song Inner Child.  

Vintage and Old Soul: These are the descriptions that match Kim Taehyung. Who will attend dance practices donning his blazer and shiny leather shoes, and who will blast The Carpenters and Frank Sinatra during his live broadcasts.

I hope the Taehyung Day Box arrives on your doorsteps like a warm hug as we end the year. May it feel like remembering something familiar, maybe even get you a bit sentimental, before you drop it on your desk and go about with your festivities. ❤

What's included on your Taehyung Day Box?

1. Scannable Codes: QR Codes leading to random messages from Kim Taehyung, Spotify code for some good vibes while unboxing.

If you weren't able to join, feel free to try one of the QR and the Spotify Codes here:

2-3. Beret in random color. Taehyung's signature headgear. Beret comes with 2 Winter Bear Glitter Button Pins that you can attach on it, or use on other stuff like your canvass tote, pouch, room decor, etc.

What color did you get? Is it same as the one you're hoping to receive?

4. A Pack of V Prints: My personally designed scrapbook style cupsleeves and postcard, photo strip and polaroid for that vintage vibe.

5. Cup and Coffee: A pack of drip coffee from our favorite local brand

6. VANTE's DIY String Bracelet: Attach the camera or paintbrush charm, or a "V" cube bead to the red string bracelet, or wear it as is.

Note: This pic was supposed to be my ARTIVIVE photo for this event! But when I tried adding my video edit, I realized that the photo has already been used! You can view it, too! Haha! So I had new ones printed, and thought of using this instead for a DIY Bracelet gimmick! Since naka bracelet din si V si pic hehe!

7. TATA Keychain. 

Just a small keepsake of one of Taehyung's cutest character creations!

"It's great that TATA can help those with low self esteem gain confidence, and I think TATA's job is to be a missing piece that fills up what each person lack." - Kim Taehyung

8. A Handwritten Love Letter: Notes about the box and the celebrant, contests that participants can join in, list of Taehyung's songs to stream, etc.

9. Korean Yakult - A quirky add-on! Must drink upside down!

Ang dami din pinagdaanan ng Yakult nato! πŸ˜‚ Didn't realize that storage, packing, and shipping will be a huge problem, tuwang tuwa pa ako sa idea ko haha! Thanks to my mom's ref space, and the miracle of the coffee cup and bubble wrap combination, naka-raos naman and so far! All Yakult were delivered without punctures! "Si Yakult lang ang malakas!" 

10. Extra random 4R photo of Kim Taehyung: These are my current favorite photos of V! 

Having these printed is also a last minute decision, coz the ones I had earlier on are nice naman but everyday I discover new BTS photos! πŸ˜‚

Extra Surprises!

4. I also made a Happy Taehyung Day Instagram Story Filter for you guys! I used V's BE concept room as background, and a smiley face doodle on the cheek. (meron nading pa blush-on and freckles yan, hehehe)

7. Santa ARMY - And lastly, I just want to share that we have already accomplished our surprise and joint effort as Santa ARMYs for Maphi, our chosen ARMY wisher who is also a frontliner! 

In her letter to @BTSUnniesPH, she wrote pamper stuff on her wishlist for having spent the past 3 months in the COVID area. On her last update, she spent Christmas in the hospital too!
