Happy Valentines Day!

This year I made this adorable gift for my boyfriend.  On a deck of cards, I thought of 52 reasons why I love him soo much (I could have easily come up with 1000 <3)  I typed them out and cut them up.  Some cards I glued the white paper on and cut out patterned hearts.  The other cards I backed the white paper with the same patterned paper and glued them on.  Both designs looked great together.  It was a super creative, super personal gift from the heart.  He loved it so much, I was so happy to see his reaction.  Now I gotta think how I'll top this for next year...

  8. Love love love! Took this idea and made my own mini deck by typing everything up and cutting out mini cards, then putting them all in one of those little nerds candy boxes. Since we're both proudly geeks, it worked perfect. I doodled little designs on the back of each card as well to make it more personal and fun. Since we're both in college on opposite sides of the country, it'll make an EPIC Christmas present for him this year!

    1. You should come up with your own ideas! If you really love your man, it should be easy.

  14. I know I'm a little late to comment but i'm going to use this idea for my boyfriend and my one anniversary and instead of 52 reasons i love you i'm going to put my 52 favorite memories of the year (: On the last one I'm going to put "heat game?" because i bought him tickets to a heat game.
    Just a small twist on the idea (: Thank you so much for the post!

  16. You would never actually be able to use the playing cards because the anonymity of each card is lost when the back of is as unique as the front xD

  18. Did you also cover the "front" part up? For example.. The ace of spades..9 of hearts..8 of diamonds ect ect ect? Thats the only thing I am not seeing...
