Tutorial for making "50 reasons we love you" deck of cards

Welcome to day 6 of Toys In The Dryer 14 Days of Valentines!
 From February 1-14 we'll be doing non-stop Valentines posts to celebrate this lovely holiday!

deck of cards reasons we love you
I had seen a version of "50 reasons we love you" floating around the internet and I thought it would be SUCH an amazing gift to give....of course with my own special tweaks to it. I really hope you like this project and will give it a try too.

What you need:
a deck of cards
paper hole punch
paper (either sticker paper or regular and mod podge)
zip ties

Step 1: gather your cards and use a paper clip to hold them all aligned, punch two holes into each card

Step 2: loop a zip tie through all of the cards and secure

Step 3: (this part takes the longest) keeping in mind that the average deck of cards measures 2 1/2" X 4 1/2" create 50 reasons you love the person you are giving it to, leaving the first card for the title "50 reasons I love you" and the second card to say "by (insert name) and a date. I used a measurement of 1 3/4" x 3 3/4" for my reasons and I also used sticker paper so that I could stick them right to the cards. If sticker paper isn't an option you can use regular paper and secure them to the cards using mod podge.

Step 4: wrap in tissue paper and secure with a string (much like "brown paper packages tied up with string")

Step 5: present to the person you love and watch them enjoy your creation
