Here’s the coupon book / photo book that I shared on my TV shots this past week or so. Both are made in the same way…. the outside cardstock is cut to 4.25″ x 11″, and the inner cardstock/paper is cut to 4″ x 10.5″. All are folded in half, and then I punched 2 holes along the fold line and threaded ribbon through it to hold it together. Easy peasy. Coupon books are a quick and easy gift, and when you make it yourself it’s even better! These samples used the Apothecary Arts set (photo book) Serene Silhouettes set (coupon book)
Another option – I used the soda pop tops from the Spring Catalogue, flattened in my Big Shot. I printed out a photo onto paper (I have a laser printer so not sure how well this will work with an inkjet image…), punched it out with my 1″ circle punch, then adhered it into the centre. I punched another hole in the top of the pop top (I used my Crop a Dile which goes through metal like butter!) I coated it with Crystal Effects and let it dry. Another fun and easy quick gift!
You still have time to make these yourself…or another option is to download the “Because I Love You” Digital Swatchbook Template. You can edit it in MDS or photo editing software, print it out and assemble it in time for tomorrow!
I hope that all the Moms out there have a wonderful Mother’s Day!!
