Pocket Sized Hope Book

By:

Give someone (or yourself) a little reminder of good things to come with this Pocket-Sized Hope Book. Made using old playing cards, this cute project is perfect for someone moving away from home or going through a rough time at work. You can customize the messages to say whatever you'd like, and you can even decorate the cards to suit your liking. This mini Hope Book also fits well in your pocket or your purse, so you can always have it on hand when you need a little something to help get you through the day.

Primary Technique: General Crafts

Beginner

Materials:

  • Pack of Playing Cards
  • 2 Book Rings {1 inch x 1 inch}
  • Modge Podge for Paper
  • Paint Brush {To apply modge podge}
  • Scissors
  • Hole Punch

 

Instructions:

  1. Start of by deciding which sayings, messages, verses etc. you'd like to include in your little book of hope.
     
  2. Once you've decided on your messages of hope, you'll want to use a photo editing site to place your text onto the image you downloaded which you can download at Papervine. You'll also want to create a titled cover for your book. {Note: I used Picmonkey for this project, as it is a free and easy photo editing site to use.}
     
  3. Taking your paint brush, paint a thin coat of modge podge onto your playing cards, before sticking down your messages of hope.
     
  4. Punch 2 holes into every single playing card. {Note: I found it made it easier to align all the punches if I punched the holes over the small squares in the upper corners of the cards.}
     
  5. Open up your 2 book rings. Then push 1 through each hole of your books cover playing card. Then start adding your cards in the order you would like them to be read. Once you've added all your playing cards, close the book rings back up.
