I made these girly playing cards for the Pin-up Girls Swap, and thought I should share because you can pretty much stick any picture you like onto playing cards (provided they are the right size of course!), producing completely unique and personalised presents!

Although they are pretty time consuming to make, it's a relatively easy and pretty inexpensive process. Just cut your pictures to size, stick them onto the card (I used double-sided sticky tape, but glue would probably work just as well) then cover the card with duraseal (clear sticky-backed book covering). Because you've stuck on about 2 extra layers, the cards will probably no longer fit in their box, so you can make one to match the cards.

Click here for my tutorial.

Pictures of the box and some cards:

I found them on a couple of Pin-up websites, which I just did a google for. Then I resized them and printed them out.

I've found this site to be the best for pin-up pics. It has a multitude of artists from different decades. Hope this helps some crafters! Smiley

this is so cool! you know, those sticker pages might work too. It is just one big sticker, and you can print out the cards and then cut them out with an exacto knife or a paper cutter. (office supply stores :] ) what a  great gift idea!
**when i first saw the post, i was like, "what did she do? she bought cards?" You did a great job and they look very professional.
