My husbands birthday just passed and when I asked him what he wanted for his birthday, he said coupons! Coupons for things he rarely gets to do…like sleep in, now that we have kids. I love that he loves homemade things and doesnt want me to spend money! Handmade coupon books are an easy and quick gift to make…and if you have a Cricut Explore machine or any other cutting/crafting machine…it gives them just a little bit of a cleaner more professional look.
In my Cricut Design Space…I simply went to “Insert Images,” and typed “Coupon,” and this was an option to be printed. What I love is that it is perforated so it can actually be torn off for “redemption.”
This is the first cut-out.The inner piece is a seperate cut out and I also had the cricut write “Good For:” to give it a more profesh look. Then I just glued them together prior to filling out. Then I just filled them out! (I hate listening to talk radio on the AM station…the dull buzzing gives me a headache!)It’s coupons like these that make me want to request a coupon book for my next bday haha!I’m sure there are better ribbons or fancier ways of tying this…but I could only find brown ribbon and I knew he wouldn’t care haha. I just weaved it through the holes and tied it all together….I probably should have made the bow in the front… oh well!I also used the cricut writing feature to write “Matt’s coupon book” on the front.
Simple and easy gift and my man loved it!
