    Hello ladies!


    Just had to share my latest diy project with you because I am so excited about it!!  My fiance and I went to our local flee market on sunday and I made the purchase of the century!!!  I found a vendor selling packs of playing cards 3 decks in each package for get this... $1.00!!!  So we picked up 20 packs so that we had 60 decks of cards... Since we bought them in "bulk" our total was $10.00 for 60 decks of cards!!  I am so excited!!  So here is a picture of the cards and one each of the front and back on the cards we are going to cover it up with our matching theme we are using for our maracas keycard/tip money holds, etc.  Like for my other DIY projects I made these on powerpoint.  So here are  some pictures Enjoy!


    The Decks of Cards Before:



    This will be the front side of the deck:



    This will be the back side of the deck:




    I will post a picture when I am done putting them together! : )

      Awesome deal! I have thought about getting decks of cards and decorating the outside box of them as well! Great find :)

                    I used powerpoint for it and saved it as a jpeg so it's not really a template but ill try posting the pp slide maybe that would be helpful.
