Father's Day Coupon Book Tutorial

I made this cute little coupon book as a gift for Dad and thought I would share how to make it for Pam's challenge over at Ideas for Scrapbookers! :)

First, I designed the inside pages. There are 12 coupons in all! I am sharing the files so you can make your own coupon book. Click here to download page 1 and page 2; pick and choose the ones that apply to your Dad.

I trimmed the coupons, leaving the margin on the right hand side. I scored with my bone folder and gave it a good crease (folding back and forth). Once the coupon book is together, this step will make it easier for the person to flip through and also tear out. I also hole punched each page twice.

I used the new Basic Grey line Max and Whiskers for the front and back covers. I made these pages a 1/2 inch larger on both sides. I also scored and hole punched them, making sure everything aligned. I inked these in brown, too.

I put the coupon book together with 2 screw themed brads. Love these!

Flipping through...

Embellish your cover however you'd like. I cut this top note shape from the Create a Critter cartridge in teal, using my white gel pen for stitching lines. I cut the "DAD" letters with a storybook like font with my Sure Cuts a Lot in brown.

I hope you like this project and possibly use it for that Dad that has everything! :) Please link back your project if you used my file so I can see your creations!
