Coupon Book

Ok, here is the first of my 3 new exciting projects - a Coupon Book! It's made out of CD envelopes! I know, right?! Who'dathunkit! This is the perfect little book for storing coupons because each page has a "window" so you can see at a quick glance if you have any coupons in that category or not. How cool is that!

We all know how the price of food is going up, up, up! So if you are a coupon clipper, then check this out!

Supplies:
(8) CD envelopes
Bind-It-All
5/8" Bind-It-All O-wires
(2) 5" x 5" chipboard
(10) 5" x 5" patterned paper or cardstock
(2) 5" x 5" white cardstock
1" circle punch
paper trimmer
adhesive
file tabs/inserts
stamps, ink, ribbon, and other embellishments

Directions:
1. Using your paper trimmer, cut the flap off of each CD envelope.
2. Cover chipboard pieces with patterned paper on one side and white cardstock on the other.

3. Stamp around the edge on the front of each envelope.

4. Adhere patterned paper to the back of each envelope. I used the Brighten My Day Wing It Collection from The Angel Company.

5. Punch a half circle at the top/front of each CD envelope using the 1" circle punch.

6. Bind the book all together with the Bind-It-All.
7. Attach file tabs to each envelope. My categories are hand-written on the inserts. You can make up your own coupon categories but here is what I used: Beverages, Breakfast, Cleaners, Dairy, Fruit & Veg., Misc., Snacks, and Pet Supply.

8. Embellish the front and back as desired.

Let me know what you think!

Remember my "One Sheet Pocket Book"? Well...............come back Friday to see my "One Sheet Pocket Book On Steroids"!!!! It's soooo cool!

Thanks for stopping by! Tootles!

What a great project Vicki! I just threw out my old coupon keeper because it was falling apart and now you've inspired me to make a new one instead of buying one!

I have wanted to do the coupon thing for such a long time but they always get wadded up and torn up in my purse, even in my billfold they fall out and go in a million different directions! What an AWESOME way to keep track! This would even be great to keep receipts in, and so much more! The wheels are turning now! I have to make this!! Thanks for sharing such an awesome idea!!
