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!

Picture of 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.

Made it! This idea is awesome! Thank you so much!

I love this idea and I made it for my husband. Instead of printing out the sayings, I used colored construction paper and bought calligraphy markers to write out the words. Thanks for this amazing craft!! ♡♥♡
