I really like them!  What would you use them for?  Just for fun?   Smiley

What did you use for the covers of the middle two?  I like the prints a lot.

Thank you all Cheesy You are all such great ego-boosters Wink

I am actually going to give them away as part of gifts, make some into keychains, and others are just for fun (they are small - great for keychains, but if you used a regular or over-sized playing card [or even cardstock, etc], then you could use them for all sorts of things).

For the lining of the two in the middle I used a watercolor-textured type printer paper (looks like watercolor, but is meant for computer use). I bought it 2 years ago, at Staples on clearence for $2.50 (regular $15).

Thanks again everyone!!

Ah! Wonderful idea Cheesy I may try that later. Yesterday I bought giant playing cards (the oversized plastic ones). I am going to give them a go, to make larger books to take with me out (for taking notes, grocery lists, etc). I would love to know how long they will last Wink

Again, if anyone makes these, I'd love to see them Cheesy
