52 Reasons Why I Love You

I made my husband a Valentine tonight!

I got the idea off of Craftster.

This was so easy, and took about $3 to make!











We got married on hubby's birthday... obviously.

Sorry some of these were blurry! You get the general idea.

All I used was a deck of cards, a single hole puncher, 1" rings, a bit of ribbon, stickers, printed out the words and most pictures, cut some from magazines, nuts and bolts on the ring for a masculine touch, and rhinestones. It was very simple!

Really? Mine only took maybe 2 hours, and that was mostly cutting and pasting.
Thank you!

What a fantastic idea! My hubby collects playing cards, I might have to do something similar for him for Vday :D

Oh wow that would be really neat. I tried looking for a 'fancier' deck of cards but I went with the original instead.

Haha! I do too, most of the 'pages' are cutesy, which is totally opposite of my style, so I had to do some funny ones as well.

This seems off the wall, but what order did you put the cards in?
thankyouterror
Jan. 31st, 2009 07:16 pm (UTC)
I thought I was the only one who cared! :)

The cards came in order from least to greatest already, when I bought them, so all I did was put the hearts cards at the back. Spades, Diamonds, Clubs, Hearts.

:)!

I love it, it's such a unique idea. I can't wait to give it to him! :)

That's a totally cute idea! I wish I'd seen this three years ago when I decided to do a 365 days of love (that ended up being a TON of index cards, printer ink, hole punches and a big box to store it all in) for my husband for christmas.

You did a great job and I think your hubby will love it.

Now if I could just find something I can do for my man (that I haven't done before)...

And I thought 52 was a lot! :)

Heh, thank you! We usually don't celebrate Valentine's day, too commercialized. But, anyday is a day to celebrate our marriage. (awwww)
