Deck of Cards Love

Pinterest, I love you. Dan loves you too. He enjoyed the deck of cards I gave him tonight expressing 52 of the reasons I love him. There are some great examples of this project on the web here and  here. I chose to keep it simple because I just started putting it together today and felt rushed. Actually, I have spent the last couple of weeks thinking about how I wanted to proceed with it until last evening when I found the one that had labels on it. The labels worked great for me and I bound the cards together with my book binding tool.

Quick and Simple Wreath

I had been wanting to make this wreath

ever since I saw it here.

I used a black striped ribbon placing double sided tape every so often onto a 12" styrofoam wreath to help the ribbon to adhere. I had to practice the winding of the ribbon a few times to get it right because it bunched easily if it was pulled too tight. I used straight pins to hold the loop and bow in place.
