Yikes! Valentine’s Day is almost here! Are you panicking
because you don’t have a great idea for a handmade
Valentine for that someone special?
I have a super EASY DIY Valentine gift idea for you!
People! This is SO easy. It may take a little time to come up with 52 Reasons that you love somebody, but it’s a wonderful exercise for the soul. Just taking the time to focus on the positive things about someone is time well spent! I think you’ll really enjoy this great idea. It’s DIY but simple and not too costly.
Here’s what you need:
A deck of playing cards with a back that you like… I used a Jumbo deck that I found at Dollar Tree
Your list of 52 reasons
My card template or design your own… my template is just a simple table in a Word document. You can access it HERE. Remember that my template is sized for Jumbo cards measuring
3.5″ by 5″
2 loose-leaf rings… I used 2″ diameter
Spray adhesive or your favorite paper glue that will leave a smooth surface
Here’s what you do:
Type your 52 Reasons PLUS a front cover & a back cover on the template… I just used regular printer paper
Cut out each “reason card” and glue to the BACK of each playing card
Use the 2 Jokers for the front and back covers of your little book.
Punch 2 holes on the left side of each card
Assemble your 52 Reasons book with the loose leaf rings
Now you’re in for some smiles when you give that special someone this loving tribute.
P.S. This idea would be fantastic for an anniversary or birthday too!
