52 Reasons Why I Love You

Brad and I recently celebrated our 1 year anniversary (can't believe how fast the time has gone!), so I knew this was the perfect occasion for this DIY (which was been sitting in my "Crafty" board on Pinterest for quite some time). It was super easy, but a little time consuming...all worth it in the end though! Instead of writing the reasons on each card, I decided to type them because I knew it wouldn't turn out the way I wanted it to with my handwriting. Making labels is really easy when you have a template, because you just have to type each reason, print, and peel them off! 
When I placed the stickers on, I stacked the cards on a cutting board because the counter was too slippery. Of course they all had to be in the same place, so I used the card before it as a template.
Now comes the fun part...I tried taking the cards to Kinkos so they could just "drill" a hole in the corner so they would all be the same, but of course their drill was broken. It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be though (thank goodness). All you have to do is pick your place where you want the hole punch and put the card behind your template, so you are essentially punching two cards at once but just using the first card as a guide. 
They were a huge hit, I'm not going to lie. It is something that I know he will have forever. When I was in Santa Monica last month, I stopped by the Sugar Paper store (obsessed if you haven't noticed) and picked up this card because I just couldn't resist! 

Any questions? Shoot me an email and I would be happy to help!
