Read How to Make It After the Jump…

 Cut the Cardstock

Begin creating the book by cutting a piece of card stock (8 ½” x 11” Super Value Pack used) that measures 4” wide by 11” long with your paper trimmer.  Score (Martha Stewart Scoring Board used) it in half and fold at the score line.  This will give you a book that measures 4” wide x 5 ½” in length.

Score

Score at the ½” mark from the left side.  Make sure that there is a good, crisp score line on both the front and back covers.

Round Corners

Round the corners on the left side of the book only.  Use the ¼” corner rounder (Crop-A-Dile Corner Chomper used).

Round White Corners

Cut several sheets of white card stock (Super Value Pack used) that measure 5 ¼” x 3 ¾” and round the corners on the left sides only.  Cut enough card stock for the number of coupons you want to create for the book.

Use a perforating blade  to create perforation marks ¾” from the left side of each coupon.  This is so that the coupons can be torn out of the book and used as wanted.

Ink Pad Tinting

Using various colors of ink pads that match the colors of your book (pink, light green and purple used), lightly rub the ink pad on the card stock pages to add color to the coupons.

Tinted Ink Pads

These are what your coupons will look like at this point.

Stamp Phrases

Stamp in black ink using the Martha Stewart Custom Stamp Setting Kit, what you want the coupons to be good for as shown in the picture above.  Also, stamp with the black ink a matching image such as a heart or lips.

 Double Sided Tape

Place strips of ¼”” double sided tape on each of the coupons and the on the inside back cover of the book between the fold and the score line.

Stack

Carefully stack all of the coupons on top of one another after removing the protective strip from the tape.  Remove the last piece of strip from the top coupon and close the front cover of the book to adhere it to the coupons.

 Inside coupon

This is what your coupon book now looks like inside.

Decorate the front cover of the coupon book by cutting a piece of patterned paper (Bo Bunny Smoochables  used) that measures 4 ¾” wide by 4 ¾” long and adhere it to the cover using a tape runner.

Punch Hearts

Next, punch 3 hearts from card stock (purple, pink, green card stock used) and stamp the word “Love” in black ink using the Martha Stewart Custom Stamp Setting Kit.  Adhere them to the book using 3-d adhesive squares.

Place a piece of ribbon along the edge of the paper on the left using Aleene’s Tacky Glue.

You now have a finished coupon book to give as a gift to the one you love this Valentine’s Day.  Be creative and choose activities that you will both enjoy such as a hug or kiss, a movie night or a date night.  Make the coupons special for the both of you so that you will each have some special memories this Valentine’s Day!

Peg Rounds lives in East Moline, Illinois with her husband and best friend, Kevin and their son Josh and 2 dogs. She was an elementary school teacher turned stay at home mom, and later a home school mom. Over the years, she designed cakes on the side and went to school to become a certified chocolatier. She always has loved to craft since she was young and it was something that she wanted to be doing, but set it aside due to her busy life. After 15 years of doing cakes she decided it was time to stop and focus more on her family. She began doing layouts, then cards and it went from there. Before she knew it, next to spending time with her family, she spent every free moment creating something and blogging about it. One thing led to another and here she is today!
