Playing-Card Wrapper

Source: Martha Stewart


Send your bridge club or your poker buddies a token that's apropos of the holiday. Pick up a few decks of red-backed playing cards, available at many drugstores, or search around for more unusual vintage cards. Then wrap each set in decorative paper printed with rules for the game of hearts.


  • 8 1/2-by-11-inch paper

  • Cutting mat

  • Craft knife or scissors

  • Deck of cards

  • Tape

  • Ribbon or twine


  1. Print the clip art onto the plain side of a sheet of decorative paper. To print the wrapper clip art, you'll need 8 1/2-by-11-inch paper; ours is patterned on 1 side. The clip art contains 2 copies of the rules. Each copy will cover a single deck of cards.

  2. Place the decorative paper on a cutting mat, and use a craft knife or scissors to cut clip art in half, separating the 2 sets of rules.

  3. Lay the clip art on a flat surface, printed side up, and set a deck of cards in the middle. Wrap the paper around cards, secure with tape, and tie with a ribbon or twine.
