Question:  I made all the cards and they look great but how do you get the holes lined up?  The hole punch i have is too wide, i need holes closer together but if i just guess then the cards won't have holes in exactly the same place.  Hmm what did you do?

I used a single paper punch, just has one hole. I lined it up with the outline on the card. They weren't too perfect, but because I tied it with the ribbon, they all fit together just fine. GOod luck!

And thanks to everyone else for your comments! I still love this project! WHen I get home, I'll post more of the pics from the book so you can get an idea of what was included. Smiley

I have another question.. the hole question was my first question but you just answered that.....

What did you use to glue on the pictures and text? Rubber cement?
Cards are a little more glossy so I feel like regular glue won't work.

Love this idea. I think I'm going to do it for my bf for V-day because we're going cheap on gifts this year. It works perfectly because he loves playing cards and poker so that all ties in well. Love it, again. Lol.

Brilliant! My boy and I aren't partaking in V-Day. I think it's mostly my choice, and he's just happy he doesn't have to pay for a fancy dinner or something!

But! I might make one of these over the next few weeks, and give it to him as a random gift. Cause random gifts of love are so much nicer and more meaningful.

Thanks for the idea!
