Here you are:. Print out as many copies as you like. You only need to print the first page once. If you want more than six coupons, print pages multiple times until you have your desired number. I printed mine on cardstock so the coupons are a little sturdier. Page 1: Instructions and cover.
Page 2 : Coupon designs Page 3: Coupon designs STEP 2: Cut out coupons and arrange in whatever order you like. Place the cover on top. Hope you enjoy it! There are two different sets of printables to download. When you cut it out, cut it out in ONE long strip.
It should measure 3 inches by 10 inches. It folds over the coupons which will sit inside.
The second set of printables are the coupons. Simply cut them out and then stick them inside the front and back cover.

If You're Broke, Gift Your Partner A Love Coupon
Loved it. What a wonderful idea!
Thank you so much for creating such a cute printable! The puncher will cut out small holes in your coupons for you. Be careful if you try to punch more than 1 piece of paper at a time. You could easily jam the hole puncher. Thread string, twine, or a ribbon through all of the coupons. Once you've a hole punched in all of your coupons, put 1 of these items through all of the holes.
Tie the ribbon, twine, or string together to bind all the coupons together. You can also use shoe laces instead of a ribbon, string, or twine. Present the book to the person you made it for. When your book is finished, tell the person you made it for to close their eyes and place it on their hands.
When they want to redeem a coupon, all they have to do is present it to you and you have to carry out that task. Method 2. Create the front cover of your coupon book. In Microsoft Word, use clip art or import a design you made in paint. Play around with the "insert" feature on Word to put some cool designs or drawings on the front cover.
Design each page of your coupon book. For practicality with Word, it's a good idea to use the same design for every page of the book. You can use a couple of different designs by creating a few different designs on Word and printing each 1 out multiple times. Measure your page and take note of the halfway point. Put 1 coupon on the top of the page and the other on the bottom of the page.
Print your coupons from Microsoft Word. Once you're happy with your design, click "File" then "Print" in Word. Word will show you a preview screen of your design before you decide to print. Print on different colored paper for a cool looking design on your coupon book. Print your design page separately. Fold the pages in half. Lay each page flat on your table or work surface.

Pull 1 end towards the other, placing the 4 corners together. Double-check to make sure that you have the corners lined up. Flatten out the crease in the middle. Cut along the fold in the middle of the page. Use scissors or a paper cutter and cut right across the crease along the middle of the page. When finished, you should have 2 halves of paper, each with 1 coupon. Draw a line across the page in very light pencil if you need to. When you've cut all of the pages, you should be left with a front cover and a significant stack of coupons.
Use a hole puncher to put holes in each coupon. When you're using the hole puncher, punch 1 coupon at a time. While you can do more, the puncher might get stuck and struggle to punch through 2 layers of card-stock. Punch the holes at the left side of each coupon. Try to punch in the same spot every time. Place the front page facing down and lay the coupons on top. Before you attach all of the pages together, make sure that you have all of the coupons facing the right direction.
Start by putting the front cover facing down and place every coupon on top of that, with the coupon side facing down. Attach all the pages with ribbon or twine. Ribbon will make the book look fancy and twine will make it look very artisanal. Feed either material through the first hole and then up through the second hole. Tie it together when you've fed all of the material through the holes. Fill in the design page and each coupon. Use a fancy pen and take your time writing on each page so you don't make any mistakes. There's a wide variety of things you could write in the coupons.
For example:  For young kids, you could write coupons letting them pick a movie to watch, to stay up past their bedtime, or to play a game. For a boyfriend or girlfriend, you could have a coupon for a romantic dinner, a massage, or to let them watch whatever they want on TV. Give the coupon book to the person you made it for. Make sure you've filled in every page before you give the person the book. You can wrap it up before you give it to them or tell them to close their eyes before you place it in their hands.

Method 3. Get a wooden box to put your coupons into. You can use an old jewelry box that's been lying around the house or buy 1 at the local arts and crafts store. The wooden box doesn't need to be very big, you just need to be able to fit the coupons into it. If the box looks old or dirty, you might need to paint it. Use grit sandpaper on the wooden box.
Before you paint the box, gently rub the inside and outside with grit sandpaper.
