Make it yourself... Quote Cards.
I love quotes, which i know sounds really lame, but I do! Quotes from books, quotes from songs, I just love that feeling when you find a quote and think 'thats exactly what I would have said if I was SUPER DUPER clever and interesting.'
I have been seeing these mini card books a lot on the internet recently and people seem to be using them for all different things, I really wanted to try making one so decided to mix two of my passions, quotes + fun easy craft projects (and of course I was watching Greys Anatomy throughout).
I have only done about 30 quotes so far and am going to continue to add more as I find even more words of wisdom. It may seem like a little bit of a weird project but I promise it is so fun and I look at my quotes all the time!Here is how to make your own:
1. A pack of playing cards.
2. String or chain.
3. A hole punch.
4. Pritt Stick.
5. A computer and a printer.
On a Word Document write out all your favourite quotes in seperate boxes. I used text boxes which worked very well. You also have to make sure that when the boxes are cut out they fit on one of the playing cards.
Holepunch your cards. Annoyingly the hole punch is too big to do each card is one go, so you have to punch two seperate holes in each cards.
PRINT out the quotes. CUT out all the boxes. STICK them in the middle of the cards, making sure not to cover the holes.
String the cards together using your string or chain. I used chain which worked perfectly but if you did not have any to hand, I'm sure string would work just as well.
Keep your quotes cards in your pocket, bag, or by your bed. That way whenever you need something to turn to... your all set.
I hope this makes sense and if you decide to make one, please send me a picture!
P.S. We have been talking about new Twit-Knit Club projects and seeing as how it is approaching winter (YAY) I was thinking hats might be a fun project? If you agree with hats or would like to join the club please tweet me! And if everyone agrees I will do an introductory blog post in the next few days.
