Father's Day Coupons

This Father's Day, give Dad a coupon booklet filled with unbelievable deals: 100 percent off a lawn mowing, car washing, delicious breakfast, and more.

Introduction

Our coupons let moms and kids offer all of the World's Greatest Dads these freebies, or any other good deed that they write in on one of the blank coupons. Just download and print our designs, make a cover, and fasten, staple, or sew a booklet together.

Materials

Steps

  1. Step 1

    Cut card stock to the same size for a cover; stack on top of coupons. With a standard hole punch, make a hole in the upper-left corner of the stack; insert a paper fastener.

  2. Step 2

    Cut a cover, and place on top of coupons. Secure stack with paper clips; machine-sew along the left side (use the dotted lines as a guide).

  3. Step 3

    Cut card stock to 2 1/2 by 8 1/2 inches. Fold end of strip over 3/4 inch; slide coupons inside flap, and staple though its center. Bend opposite end of cover over coupons, and insert under flap (like a matchbook cover); crease.

    It doesn't sound like many of you come in contact with 14 year olds these days. Thanks angelwings55!!! I read her bio as well. Any 14 year old that can say her most prized possession is "Her MUM!" must be a pretty great kid. Good Luck Shivi. I hope to meet you in Disneyland someday, My favorite place on earth!!!

    thanks for the hint to read someone's bio-I took you up on it and Shivi sounds like a terrific kid! Hey, Shivi, I think it's ironic that your dream vacation is Disneyland and mine is togo to Austrailia! Stay interested in all you already are! This is a cute idea; makes me almost wish my kids were still at home! :)

    Here's a few ideas for the blank coupons - a lunch out at Dad's favorite restaurant; an ice cream treat at Cold Stone Creamery; for pizza - the ideas are endless.

    Ms. Shivi - I think Martha's intent is to give us a little imagination for the use of the coupons. If a the coupons were filled in, would you have asked why there weren't any blank coupons so that I can fill a few in with my own ideas? - now that's pretty pathetic.

    I have to agree with Harker46. Regrettably, if Shivi does not know to behave any differently at 14, I doubt she will become any less rude as she gets older. Big deal if she is 'only' 14, that is undoubtedly old enough to have better manners. By the time I was fourteen my mother had instilled manners in both her kids. Todayn n n n n n s kids are beasts.

    hey harker, read her bio, shivi is only 14 - give her a break

    Shivi I was disappointed that you felt a need to complain about the total number of FREE templates you were given from Martha and the team. I think it says something about your character. I appreciate all that they share with us.

  • Shivi 12 Jun, 2008

    I thought this was a really good idea but then i looked at the templates and there was only 6 cards, 2 of which were blank so martha and team had only thought up 4, that's pretty pathetic

    I made one for my Grandmother years ago for GrandParents Day. She loved it. I really do think the value of this gift is *Priceless*.. very easy

  • stinalmt 11 Jun, 2008

    Just make sure to put an expiration date on the coupons! I'm 24, and one night at an expensive restaurant my dad pulled out a "one free dinner" coupon that I had made for him when I was 9!!!! Hahaha... ki ds never think about that!

    Very cute idea! I ran enough coupons off for both Mother's Day and Father's Day for my boys and girls in my Sunday School Class to give their parents at the appropriate time. This is a gift that teaches love and appreciation as well as responsibility-Thanks!
