52 Reason Why I Love You!


I found this cute deck of cards idea while surfing around on Pinterest. Since Valentines day was coming up, I decided I would make it for my boyfriend, Christian. I would have posted this before Valentines day to give y'all a gift idea that you could make for your loved one, but Christian is bad with surprises and wouldn't have been able to help himself from not looking. We literally have to hide his presents at Christmas time or else he'll go looking for them. Basically this is a deck of cards, turned into a booklet with one thing you love about your significant other on each card. I found it really easy to come up with ideas and had a hard time narrowing it down to just 52. (I cheated and made 54)

To recreate this project, you'll need:


Deck of cards / paper / scissors / double sided tape / colored pens / hole puncher/ rings to attach cards




Steps: 
          1.) Cut the pieces of paper so that they are the size of/ smaller than the cards.
          2.) Come up with 52 Reasons why you love your significant other and write one on each     vvvvvvvzpiece of paper.
         3.) Attach the paper to the cards using double sided tape.
         4.) Punch holes into the top and bottom of the cards
         5.) Add rings to the holes to bind all the cards into a book
         6.) Decorate the book and add photos. 

I then took a Sweethearts candy box and put the cards in there to trick Christian. On the front I put the date we started dating. 

Here is the finished product! I'm really proud of how it turned out.

1. You love me
