“52 Reasons I Love You” Cards Tutorial

Did you know this project now has its own website – with heaps of additional information.
Note: If you would like to link to, feature or re-publish this project – please see here.

Below you will find the tutorial showing how to make the cards. On the website you can also find a complete supply list and all the information on purchasing a template to create the labels.

  1. Find some playing cards! These fabulous cards from Ellusionist shown here are great as they have a pre-aged Vintage look.
  2. Scuff them up with some sandpaper to give them a used feel as well as a used look
  3. Create a template with one of the spare cards (for example one of the Jokers)
  4. Punch two holes in each cards using the template as a guide
  5. Create your reasons labels to attach to the cards – detailed information below. Use another Joker card to create the front cover.
  6. 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.
  7. Create all 52 of your reasons cards and let the glue dry
  8. Thread onto book rings

NOTE: I have created a FAQ page here with additional information on products used and where to buy them or you can check out the dedicated website here.

Creating the Reasons Labels
There are two templates available for purchase. This page HERE has all the information you need to make a decision regarding which is best for you.

Option One – JPEG Download
$4.99 – download high quality jpeg files to be used with a program of your choice

Option Two – POWERPOINT Download
$6.99 – download a PowerPoint presentation with placeholder text. Print ready.

You can see exactly what is included in the templates on this page here. Please read what you will receive and what you will need to do after purchasing to re-create the reasons as shown.

If you do not want to purchase the template – no problem! You can create your own cards.
To help you out – here are the dimensions for the boxes I have used.
Outer red box – 6cm x 4cm
Inner cream box – 5.3cm x 3.3cmIf you want to use the same font it is called Trinigan FG and you can download it for FREE from 

FAQ Page
Check out the FAQ page if you have any questions.Also see the website here – or email me here.Lowri 🙂

    if youre having a hard time with the template like me (not very computer savvy & i dont have power point) if youre using microsoft word, you can go to the office website and they have a lot of great pre-made templates that open right in word, and then you can just change the font, size, color etc however you want, super easy. heres a link to the ones i used, they are actually labels for spice jars, but they work perfectly.|

      Chris, How did you change the pre-made template colors? When I pull it up they are green bottle labels that I'd like to change to red. How did you do that?

    • Reply Unknown February 13, 2012 at 3:52 AM

      I found these worked great – but we printed them @ 75% size to fit inside the little box on the cards- the kids preferred this look!
      Thanks so much for the tips!!!

  • Reply Stephanie January 16, 2012 at 8:16 PM

    Are you positive your red square was 6cm x 3cm? Converted to inches, it's 2.4 x 1.2 and when I create that square in PowerPoint, it's long and skinny. Just wondering because I ordered the playing cards on-line and watch to get the reasons set up and printed so that when the cards arrive, I can assemble before my husband leaves for Germany. He'll be gone over the holiday, which is why I want to surprise him by hiding this in his suitcase. 🙂 Thanks!

    • Reply Lowri January 16, 2012 at 9:47 PM

      Stephanie – thanks for pointing out that typo. It should have been 6x4cm – I have corrected it in the post above.

    First of all, I LOVE this project! I just ordered a deck of cards from Amazon and can't wait to get started on making this for my boyfriend 🙂 But I'm having trouble with the font you shared. I was able to download it, but when I try to install it, my computer says the file is broken. Anyone know how I can fix this problem, or know where I can get this font or something similar? Thanks!

    • Reply Lowri January 19, 2012 at 6:16 PM

    So I am currently working on mine now. Because I don't have a printer or access to one I am going to use a permanent marker and write directly on the cards… Since I didn't have any old decks of cards I bought a brand new set, just wish I could get the vintage look, do you have any ideas?

    • Reply Lowri January 27, 2012 at 7:30 PM

      You could try soaking them in tea – that usually works great for againg paper but if they are coated you might need to scuff off some of the surface first. You could also use some brown ink around the edges to age them. These acrds were actually new too – i just bought a pack that looked old (see link in the post as to which ones I used)

      NOTE – I am not saying any of these will definitely work – but they might be your best bet for trying! I would try on the spare cards in the pack first and make sure you can write on them afterwards before you try and do them all.

    • Reply Jackie Jackson January 30, 2012 at 8:25 PM

      I put them in a single layer in a toaster oven for about 3-5 minutes. It worked great – just watch it carefully so you don't burn the house down! Then I scuffed them up with a fine sand paper. I had a brand new deck from the mega pack at costco. I'm excited to finish this!

  • Reply courtneyf January 27, 2012 at 8:03 PM

      If you have inserted the jpeg as a picture into a PowerPoint – just go to Format_Picture Shape and change to a rounded rectangle.

      If you have inserted a shape and filled it with the jpeg – just go to Format_Edit Shape and do the same thing.

      Hi – I think this is the part you need!
      "In PowerPoint I inserted one of the jpegs from the downloaded digital paper collection onto a slide and then cropped it to 6x4cm. I repeated this for the inside rectangle which is 5.3×3.3cm using the cream digital paper, changed the shape of the image to a rounded rectangle and then just typed a text box on top."

      To find the “Crop” feature, click on your picture in Powerpoint then go to Format on the very top right of the menu.
      On the far right a crop function should be there and then to the right of that a dimensions box so you can see where you are cropping – see if you can see that…

      Hope that helps

    What a neat project! How fun to give to one of your kids too! They could leave it out and flip to a different reason whenever they need a pick-me-up. Pinning this!

    Would it be corny if I did this for my Girlfriend? I see alot of girls are doing it for their Boyfriends/Husbands….Would it still do the job or would it just be wierd?

    • Reply Lowri April 2, 2012 at 2:16 AM

      This was featured on the 100,000++ Facebook page of the cards manufacturer – and most of the guys there thought it was an awesome idea. I had several emails from men making it for their partners. If my husband made me this – let's just say he would get a very special thank-you 🙂

    I hope your right. I just got news that shes going to Africa to help sick kids through her school. Its only for 10 days but with no communication at all, i want to keep her happy and motivated. I think this is a good fit and will start working on it but can u recommend anything else?

    Anyone have recommendations for other fonts you have used? I don't want to buy a new font, but just to use one I already have in power point. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

    • Reply Lowri June 7, 2012 at 6:33 PM

      Hi Lindsay – the font is actually free and just takes a couple of seconds to download and install. If you are trying one from your computer you will just have to play around a little to get the sizing right. I would pick one to match the style of the cards you are making.
      Hope that helps – Lowri

    Hi! I made this one yesterday and it was beutiful! Thank you very much for the idea! I didn't find vintage style cards, so I used the typical cards and with a lighter I made them a bit grey in order to look like used. Thanks again! Your blog is awesome!
