Cut the white cardstock sheet into six 6-inch x 4-inch rectangles. Decorate these as your coupons. Use the cardboard for the back cover of the coupon book. If desired, you can cover it with cardstock or patterned paper from the scrap pack.
Cut a 6-inch x 4-inch rectangle from pink cardstock. Create an all-over pattern on the cardstock using a small flower image and rouge ink. Rotate the flower up and down to create a “tighter” pattern. Tint the edges of the cardstock with chestnut roan ink. This piece will be the front cover of the coupon book.
Cut a square from the print paper and tint the edges with chestnut roan ink. Glue it near the upper left corner of the front cover.
Cut a strip from the print paper and use the wavy-edge scissors along one long edge. Tint the edges with chestnut roan ink. Glue it near the bottom right corner of the front cover.
Stamp “coupon book” on tan cardstock with timber brown ink and trim around each word to form a rectangle. Tint the edges with rouge ink. Glue them to the front cover, overlapping both print papers.
Stamp “mother” with timber brown ink on the die-cut tab and tint the edges of the tab with rouge ink. Fold the tab in half. Sandwich it around the front cover at the top right corner and use glue to hold it in place.
Punch two holes along the left side of the front cover. Space the holes about 1½-inches apart. Use these holes as a guide to punch holes in the coupon pages and the back cover.
Tie the covers/pages together with ribbon and tie a bow on the front.
Use photo as a guide and follow manufacturer’s instructions for all products used.
