Mother's Day Coupon Book

Introduction

Whether redeemable for a car wash, breakfast in bed, or a luxurious day of pampering, coupons make memorable gifts that allow Mom to savor the splendors of Mother's Day long after the holiday has passed.

Materials

Steps

  1. Step 1

    Download and print our Mother's Day coupon template onto colored card stock.

  2. Step 2

    Create perforated left- and right-hand edges: Lay the ruler on the line where the coupon and the bind meet, and use a tracing wheel (usually used for pattern making), to scribe the edge of the coupon. Roll the tool along the ruler edge three or four times, creating the perforation. Repeat for remaining side.

  3. Step 3

    Using a mat knife, cut out the coupons. Make sure to leave the tab on the left-hand side of the coupon for the bind.

  4. Step 4

    Bind the coupons together: Stack coupons on top of one another, and using a hole punch, make two holes in the binding. Thread and tie a 1/4-inch-wide piece of ribbon to bind the booklet. Write in your redeemable gifts by hand.

    I made this for mother's day for my daughter and she loved it. I put baby sitting home cooked meals and other misc. things in it. It was easy to make and cute when finished.The scribe performations are to tare the coupons out.

    I re-read the directions several times, and maybe I am missing something. Why is it necessary to scribe performations on the right - the side away from the binding?
    Thank you!

    Did this with my 3 grandchildren last week for their moms, they loved it.
    So easy too....just printed them out on cardstock.

    Totally agree with Grammababy's comment. This is a fabulous idea, but since it's so late, I won't be able to use it until next year. I wish ideas for various calendar events came out a bit more in advance of the actual dates themselves!

    thanks so much! I needed a gift idea for my sister. Now I will give her some babysitting and fix dinner coupons. Just right for my budget. Love the idea!

    Another MARVELLOUS tip ... again; way too late. We NEED these ideas before 9:45 PM the night before. We don't have worker bees to do these for us.
