Coupon Book for Mom
Adorable actress Abigail Breslin joins Martha to chat about her new movie, "My Sister's Keeper," and to make something special for Mom -- a meaningful book full of coupons.
Start with a 12-by-12-inch piece of scrapbook paper. Fold paper in half, then in half again, and then in half again, ending up with a 3-by-6-inch folded piece.
Open folded paper piece. With a craft knife, cut a slit along the center fold, leaving 3 inches at the top and bottom intact. Fold to make coupon book (see video, to be posted Monday, May 11, for demonstration of how to fold).
Cut a 3-by-6-inch strip of scrapbook paper, and use border edge punch along edges. Use double-sided tape to adhere to front cover of coupon book.
Embellish cover strip with letter stickers to say "MOM."
Punch a butterfly out of paper and fold in half. Put a dot of craft glue on the fold of the butterfly and adhere to the cover.
Download and print coupon templates. Cut coupons to size. Attach ribbon-style label to blank space on coupon using double-sided tape. Write "Happy Mother's Day" on label.
Punch circles out of card stock, and write a message for Mom on them. Place foam dots on the back of the punched circles, and adhere them to blank circles on coupon template.
Using double-sided tape, attach coupon to coupon book. Repeat for the number of coupon book pages desired.
