DIY Valentine gift
In previous years I haven’t been quite so crafty with my gifts. Well, in general I haven’t been quite so crafty at all. New developement I guess. This year I wanted to make a homemade Valentine’s Day gift for my husband, so I made the “52 Reasons Why I Love You”. I’m pretty happy with how it turned out too! Since Valentine’s Day is almost upon us, I thought I would share my project with all of you!
What do you need?
A full pack of cards
Markers, colored pencils, pens, etc.
Glue or some other adhesive
Ribbon, binder rings, etc
My cards ended up being a jumbo sized pack, but use any size you wish!
The tags were printed from my Cricut machine in four different colors; there is red, pink, blue, and purple. I didn’t use any fancy paper, just regular printer paper. Each reason was hand written and numbered then decorated and glued onto each card in their respective order. Now, this part is up to you however you wish to order the cards. I kept each suit together and in order.
The tags were not cut to fit the entire card. I attempted to affix them as centered as possible.
I tied the cards together with some pink and green polka dotted ribbon. It had to be loose enough to be able to turn the pages with ease. Now on to decorate the cover and back page!
The front and back covers are the Jokers. Once again I used the Cricut to make the conversation bubbles for the front and then just cut a simple rectangle by hand for the back. My decorations aren’t art gallery worthy, but they sure do get the point across! XD
No matter how it is done and what the end result looks like, I am bettin’ your significant other will love this gift!
Until next time…
(Methinks I need a new outro phrase…lol)
