- Find some playing cards! These fabulous cards from Ellusionist shown here are great as they have a pre-aged Vintage look.
- Scuff them up with some sandpaper to give them a used feel as well as a used look
- Create a template with one of the spare cards (for example one of the Jokers)
- Punch two holes in each cards using the template as a guide
- Create your reasons labels to attach to the cards – detailed
information below. Use another Joker card to create the front cover.
- Using double sided tape and/or glue – attach the inserts to the
cards. Using glue will take longer to dry and will stiffen the cards up
adding more dimension.
