DIY "52 REASONS I LOVE YOU" CARD TUTORIAL

With Valentines Day fast approaching, I wanted to share with you what I created for my hubby this year.  He doesn't read the blog unless I ask him to, so I think I'm safe!
Since his birthday is less than a week after VDay, I always try to keep it real small, inexpensive and easy to make.  I can't take credit for coming up with this idea, I've seen several versions online and found one through pinterest.
I filled the deck of playing cards with 52 reasons why I love my amazing husband.  I tried to include things he does for me, how he makes me feel, funny stuff, sexy stuff, and things about who he is as a person.  I wanted to really tell him what I love about him and his character.  Because, I love him for who he is, not just how he makes me feel or what he does for me.


Instructions:
Find some playing cards!Scuff them up with sandpaper to give them a used feel and lookCreate a template with one of the spare cards (I used a joker)Punch two holes in each card using the templat…

EASY DIY VALENTINE GIFT

Since Valentines Day is around the corner, I wanted to share what I made my husband last year.  Super simple and that's how I like it!
My idea came from here.


Super cute, right?
Since we didn't have the Scrabble game on hand, I purchased some sticker letters.  Let me tell you the scrabble letters would have had a much bigger impact than the stickers and I know this because the first thing out of my husband's mouth was "why love you?"  Fail.
Here's the quick tutorial.
Supplies: Frame (mine was a black 4x6 unused frame I found in our bookcase)Craft paper (you could also use wrapping paper or fabric too)Scrabble letters (or stickers in my case)ScissorsAny embellishments you desire (I chose a tin heart fastener with a brad back)
Put them all together!
Ta Da!


Easy Peasy!
Have a great day!
