I've seen pictures of these "52 Things I Love About You" decks of cards floating around the internet all over the place, so I thought this year I would give it a try and make my own for my sweetie and share how I did it with all of you. Hope you enjoy!

Step 1: Supplies!

You'll need:
1 Deck of Playing Cards
Glue
Template for the cards, you make on your own or this already made one included in this Intructable.
Scissors
Hole Punch
Binder Rings or Ribbon

Step 2: Brainstorming!

Before you start, you need to make a list of 52 things that you love about whoever you are giving this to.
Things such as "Your smile!" or "Your eyes!" If you are having trouble coming up with ideas, there are plenty of helpful sites out there to get you rolling. Here are just a few:

365 Things I Love About You, By: ~Hazel-Almonds.
366 Reasons I Love My Husband, By: Bookish Penguin
100 Reasons Why I Love You, By Sandy

You can adjust any of those to be more specific to your loved one and you.

Step 3: Getting Started!

Once you have your 52 things figured out. Open up the template and write them onto each box by adding text.
Fill out the template and print it out.

Side Note: The font I used for the cover card is Felix Titling, so if you want to have a uniform looking set just use that font!

Step 4: Cutting Time!

After you have your filled template printed out, take some scissors and cut out each square, keeping them in order.

Step 5: Punching Holes!

Take your deck of cards, including the joker card and use the hole punch to punch one to two holes on one edge of each card.

Step 6: Cover Card!

Take the joker card and on the back of it, glue down the "52 Things I Love About You" square onto it.
On the front or face side, glue on the "I Love..." square.

Now you have your cover card made.

Step 7: Putting It Together!

Continue gluing down the squares on the face side of each card, one per card until they are all finished.
You may have to place the cards under some heavy books to get them to dry flush against the card.

After they are finished, take your binder ring and slide on each card in order and close it.

Step 8: Second Option of Putting It Together!

If you decide to use ribbon instead of binder rings, just thread the ribbon through the cards, double knot it, and tie into a bow.
Both options get the job done and look cute, I just like the ribbon look the best!

Step 9: All Done!

With that, your deck of cards should be complete and you will have your finished product!
Flatter your loved one by presenting them with this little modified deck of cards!

<p>Just download the template (I saved it to my desktop as Adobe Acrobat). Then open it from your Desktop, go to Save As, and select &quot;Word Document&quot; as the 'Save as type'. Then you can edit it in Word, and when you're finished save it as a PDF. That's what I did. Hopefully this works :)</p>
