If My Love was a Deck of Cards…


So, I’m a Pinterest fanatic! I have the app on my phone and that’s all I look through when I’m bored inbetween classes. I love looking at the different quotes and DIY projects people come up with! This is one I found particularly charming and had bookmarked for a while before I actually got around to putting it together. It’s a deck of cards that are hole punched and on them you put “52 Reasons I Love You” or if you’re just not there yet “52 Reasons I Like You” or hey, Thanksgiving’s around the corner so maybe “52 Reasons I’m Thankful for You”! 

I bought the pack of cards for 99 cents at Walmart, and I made the template myself in Microsoft Word. I found a couple sites that were selling templates, and although they were insanely adorable, I just couldn’t get myself to shell out the $5-$10 they were asking for something I was pretty confident I could make myself. I’m not a tech expert, but I do know how to insert a chart in my Word Document! (Send me a message if you would like some help). I really enjoyed making this though, and I sent it off in my boyfriend’s last care package. He said it was his favorite thing I’d made him so far, and that he likes that he can go through them when he’s missing me. (What girl wouldn’t wanna hear that?) He was also shocked that I had came up with 52 reasons I loved him! Which brings me to my next order of business…

How do you come up with 52 reasons you love someone? I mean I freakin love James but at first I had a really hard time transferring that love to short little phrases that would fit onto a playing card! My advice would be to just not over think it. What do you love about them? Do they smell nice? Do they have a nice tushy? Do they sing when they’re in the shower? I’ll list the ones that I put for James, I’m quite proud of them!!

    • Thanks! It was a little tricky at first, coming up with them, but once you get started it’s actually pretty easy 🙂 I wrote these while I was watching The Notebook…that may have helped! lol

    • Hey Natalie!! I made the chart 6 across and 3 down, then I right clicked and did the “distribute rows and columns evenly”. If you would like, I can email you my file so you can just plug your reasons in!

      • Is there any way you could email me your file by chance?! I love the idea, but am driving myself crazy coming up with a template! I am going to give it to my husband the day of our wedding!

  2. Hi, Love your cards…I am trying to make this too. I agree I don’t want to shell out for the template but an in no way too computer savy – can you help out with the template? Thanks
