Conversation Questions

Who doesn't like to have a good conversation?  I thought this would be a fun
thing to have for a family or friends get together, when the kids are texting
or looking bored, or the men are talking business, sports, politics...

Start asking some questions to get everyone involved!

I got these labels from OfficeMax ~
they fit perfectly on the cards.

This next step was a personal choice, I didn't like the white labels
so I used a distressed background image from The Graphics Fairy.
Printed the distressed image first on the labels.

{White                       and              Distressed}

Then, start coming up with your questions ~
I did make some up, and then did
a search for questions,
you can look
up by "ice breaker questions/conversation questions"
you'll find plenty.
Avery has templates to use
for the labels,
type your questions up
and print them out.

You can use an ordinary deck of cards...
I used these animal print cards ~
I found at Michael's
in the bargain bins

52 Questions to start a conversation!

For the cover
I used images found at The Graphics Fairy,
arranged them in Photoshop and printed it on satin photo paper.

Last, I used a 3 hole punch, positioned one of the punches
to the center - top of the card, and punched out all 52.

The ring, I found at Archiver's

For a little bit of time
and a little bit of money,
you can have great conversations!

Candle light

Seems like lately I've been using flameless candles
instead of the real ones. 
These are safe, but very boring, so I added a little scenery to this one ~

Here it is on

I printed this castle from The Graphics Fairy
on player piano sheet music.

I love how the light peeks through the perforations!
