-One deck of 52 playing cards
-Double sided tape
-Pair of scissors
-Clip art, stickers, pictures
-Card template (optional)
Before we begin, you must know that some of this project turned out to be "sheer dumb luck" (as said by Professor McGonagall!) For example, I know that I would buy a pack of red playing cards, so I designed a card template in Microsoft Word with the colors red and black. I didn't actually have a deck of cards at the time to measure how big the outside of the card was. I seriously just eyeballed it, and it came out nearly spot on perfect in size (I know, I am amazing).
A template for the back of the cards is not required. In fact, if you want one, I will send you mine free of charge--just email me! If you make a template, your project will turn out much neater, and I highly recommend it.
1. Create a template for the backs of the cards. On each template, you will write a different reason why you love that person. Print out 6 pages of these, if you do 9 templates per page. So for example, here are some of mine:
2. Cut out each template.
3. Next (optional), decorate your templates with clip art, stickers, pictures, glitter, whatever you want! I did a picture on each one, just to make them cute and funny.
4. Take 2 pieces of double sided tape and affix each piece to the top and bottom of the back of a playing card (not the number side).
6. Attach your template to the back of your card. You may need to smooth out the wrinkles/bubbles, but this is easy to do with your finger. (That's what she said! LOL)
