52 Reasons I Love You

February 12, 2012

If you peruse DIY blogs often then you’ve seen this awesome idea everywhere. Hopefully you will have enough time to throw this fun and loving craft together for your valentine. First, come up with 52 reasons why you love someone. You probably have all the other supplies at your house. I gave this to Justin today as an early anniversary/valentines gift. A valiversary gift.


You Will Need:
deck of cards
sandpaper or sanding pad
twine, ribbon, or metal rings
hole punch
white labels

To give the cards a distressed look, use the sandpaper to take off some of the color and sheen. This is time consuming but gives the cards a cool look. Use one of the extra cards (found in a new deck) as a template to punch the other holes. I wrote my reasons on white labels and cut them to size. The adhesive on the labels made attaching the 52 reasons to the cards easy, but you could always use paper and glue. Then get creative with the rest- cover, back, and tie.

This is such a neat idea! I have two question though, how did you organize the cards? and what labels did you use?
