Hi there! Shellye McDaniel here today with my take on a quick coupon book for dad this Father’s Day!
To start, I placed smooth, white cardstock into my printer and then printed off the two sheets of coupons from the free PDF file you can download by clicking below.
The coupons were cut to 2”X8” strips; the left end of the coupons was punched with the DIY Party Tag Punch.
Next, a sheet of the “Here & Now” paper from the “Honey I’m Home Collection” was cut to 9”X12”. The paper was placed onto a scoring board horizontally and scored at 3”, 6” and 9” and then folded as shown below:
The two end flaps were glued into place with adhesive.
The coupon tags were all stacked together and a large silver eyelet was placed through all of the holes. A Crop-A-Dile was used to punch a hole along the left inside, bottom flap of the cover; one of the coupons was used to determine placement before punching. Set the eyelet with the Crop-A-Dile and now all of the coupons have been secured to the cover.
For the cover, the PDF sentiment was printed onto a small piece of green cardstock from the DIY Cardstock Pad. The oval frame from the Ephemera pack was used as a template to trace around and cut-out the sentiment. The sentiment was then attached to the back of the oval frame and attached to the front of the cover:
A portion of the sentiment from the “Real Life” paper’s journal cards was attached below the print-off sentiment. Finally, the light-bulb wood veneer piece was attach to the bottom of the sentiment and was further embellished with the puffy sticker and heart sticker.
In finishing, I went back and embellished the various coupons with several of the cute components from the collection: ephemera pieces, puffy sticker and cardstock stickers.
You could also have the kids write little notes or sign their names to some of the coupons! There are many great sites online where you can find free printable downloads with even more styles and customizable coupons…have fun!
