OriginalYouth -- those are so beautiful! I love how creative you got with this!

diy sami -- those heart-shaped cards are fabulous! It definitely kicks the project up a notch!

I'm so happy that this little project took off like this -- I'm a big sap for Valentine's Day, so this warms the cockles of my sappy, schmoopy heart!  Wink

If anyone else makes one, be sure to post!

Thanks SO much for posting this! I found so really great cards in the shape of a heart from target that are just perfect for this project!

Ohhhh! That's so great!! Be sure to post when you make it -- I'm all sappy for the heart shaped cards! Yay!

nruio -- Awesome job! Love how it turned out! Those binder rings are really neat and I love the "Seattle" deck. That cover is great -- did you decoupage that, or... ?

Since you showed couple of your craft-related pages (which I love!) from yours, I thought I would share this other one from mine (if you can stand yet another picture from me):



(Aren't we lucky?!)

One question before I start gluing.....do you think I should put the cards in order by color, every other color, hearts first, spades first, just do it randomly or.....?

I decided to go for totally random with mine. Otherwise, I knew I would get hung up on the arrangement... and what if two "things" didn't flow well from one into another, but the card order said they should go there, blah, blah, blah. Just like going with the first 52 things I thought of, this decision helped to quiet my perfectionist mind. Smiley Can't wait to see yours!

Thanks to everyone for all of the compliments. I'm glad that this project has inspired so many people! Even for the few posters who weren't sure that their Valentine would appreciate this, I encourage you to try it -- you might be surprised! My honey isn't the most emotional guy in the world, but he seemed really touched when I gave him this. Who doesn't love to hear [read] great things about themselves, right?

what size binder rings did you use?

This is an excellent question, because the first ones I bought were too small and I had to go back and buy more! These are 1 inch.

How did you punch the holes, though?  With just a hole puncher, or something else?

I used a hole punch... and now that I'm remembering... I think I used my 3 hole punch, which allows you to adjust how far apart the holes are. So I made two of them pretty close together and then, of course, I only used those two.

If you only have a hand-held one-hole-at-a-time punch, I would recommend making some sort of template, so that your holes pretty much line up.

I have to start narrowing my list of 'whys' now... will be difficult  Wink

I knew it would be super-hard for me too! That's why I just decided to go with the first 52 I came up with. After I came up with 52, I kept thinking, "Oh! And that! And that too! And I love THAT!" But I had committed to the first 52 and I stuck with it. So if you're having a hard time narrowing, that's one way of handling it.

Super Cute-- Im going to have to start thinking of 52 reasons....   well...maybe i'll use a half deck --- or 10  or 5 cards???     heee heeeeee

Aww... c'mon! Wink I think if you started to make a list, you'd find you have a lot more than 5 or 10 reasons you love your honey! Sweets4ever did 101 -- maybe she can help you out!

I LOVE THIS!! I want to make one! But first.. would you reccomend me buying a xyrom? I've been wondering about it for sometime.. Do you have to refill it a lot?

I love my Xyron with a white-hot passion. I have the 510, which allows you to make stickers, laminated stickers, cold laminate, and magnets. (You need a separate cartridge for each one). They're usually about $50, but with Joann's ubiquitous 40% off coupons, you should be able to get it for less. The sticker cartridge is 18 feet long, so that's a lot of stickers. I don't replace it all that often, but if you use it a lot, you'll have to replace it more (obviously). The sticker cartridges cost about $17 each for me locally, but, again, I use my 40% off coupon for a discount. What's nice is that you can swap out cartridges easily at any time, so you don't have to use up, say, the magnet (7 feet long) when you want to make stickers.

I also have the little tiny Xyron sticker maker, which makes stickers that are 1.5 inches wide (the 510 is 5 inches wide) and it's only $10 (before coupon!) and would be perfect for this project. It comes with a 20 foot cartridge and re-fills are $5. For that price, that little thing cannot be beat.

Having said all of that, if you're on a tight budget, you could easily make this project with good old-fashioned glue (and, of course, loooove Wink ). The Xyron makes it easier, but if you've got glue, go for it.

I've been thinking of making some of these myself, so here's my question for you -- how does the cashier handle it when you come up with these? With the plastic, they can see through to what's inside. But with these, I guess they have to... open the bag to find out what's in there?

Sorry if this question seems obtuse. It just seems like only recently have baggers become accepting of reusable grocery bags. I'm trying to figure out if non-clear produce bags are going to freak them right out. Smiley

Beautiful work on these -- they're lovely!
