D.I.Y. Valentine! "52 Things I Love About You"

Follow Me on Pinterest Some of you may be aware by now that I am a Pinterest Addict! I found this great D.I.Y. Valentine's Gift idea and decided I HAD to do one and make it my own. Don't fret, if you want to do something similar YOU STILL HAVE TIME! I'm also a procrastinator which is why it took me so long to finish and get this posted! Don't be like me!


This is so simple, yet so very thoughtful. First things first, you  need to come up with 52 things you love about your significant other. I initially thought it might be a difficult (I know, that's awful!) but I ended up having to narrow my list WAY down. It was tough! Now gather your supplies; All you need are a deck of cards, some glue (I used modge podge) a hole punch, and some binder rings. You can hand pen the "52 Things I Love About You" if you don't have a printer at home. I printed mine out in a navy blue to match the color of my cards and I used a pretty little font for a tad bit extra flare. I also used scalloped scissors to cut each piece of paper out.

Next you need to assemble your "book". Punch holes in each of the cards, make sure they line up! Cut out your 'things' to fit nicely on the cards. I used a glue stick to glue each one on to the card and then I went back over them with modge podge to make sure it would stick. The longest part is waiting for the cards to dry. Once they are dry you just slip the cards over the binder rings and Voila!


I used a mixture of humorous and sentimental things I love about my husband. I figure he'd appreciate the laugh.


The really great part of this project is that it is totally customizable. There are different types of glue that you can use to make the cards look worn. You could add pictures. Or bling or whatever you wanted!


Don't be afraid to think outside the box with this one. Not only is this a great gift for your significant other, but what about your kids? Your mom? Or your best friend? I think with just a few tweaks it could be fitting for anyone in your life.

Bottom line, this was a fun project that came from the heart. I hope my husband likes it. I will let you know tomorrow! :)
