The month of … ridiculously overpriced roses … half of my family’s birthdays … the superbowl … those sugared cinnamon jelly hearts that I can’t stop eating.
The month of love.
If you’re starting to think about what to give your sweetheart, I have a simple gift idea for you.
In all my years of loving Ryan, I have never given him a coupon book. I think this is the year! I actually think these would be really cute for kids, too. Or for kids to give to their parents. So many options.
You can download the whole set for free from my stationery company called Paper Works. Continue down for details …
Putting the books together is super simple. You’ll download the pdf file and print on card stock. I like to use smooth 100lb paper (like this) but whatever you have on hand will work. You can send the file to your local print shop, too, if you don’t have a printer at home.
Once you have the pages printed out, choose a cover pattern. Cut out the cover of choice and coupons you want to add to your book. There are a handful of pre-filled in options but if you’re totally grossed out by feet or can’t bear to sit through a sci-fi/thriller with your darling, you can leave those out and fill in a few of your own on the blank pages.
Gather up your coupons and put them in order. Staple on the left to hold together.
Put the cover with pattern facing back (so the back is cute) and then fold over the pattern to create a binding.
Attach the cover with double-sided tape or glue stick. Then fill in the blanks and you’re done!
Isn’t it cute? And so easy to put together.
You could even pair the coupon book with the art print that is part of the February Collection from Paper Works.
(Paper Works is a monthly subscription company where you get a new collection of paper goods each month. You can just get the digital files and print on your own, or choose the professionally printed set. Also? You get access to a library filled with calendars, note cards, organizational items, art prints and paper crafts like straw tags, banners, wrapping paper and so much more.)
Every month we give away a couple of items from the new collection for free! You can join that email list now and get the four February items, which includes the love coupons.
Just click the image above (or right here) for the free items at Paper Works. You’ll receive an email with the links to all of the freebies!
Enjoy and happy February!
