Look what I got for Christmas:
It's a package of 500 small paper bags( 8 1/8 " x 4 1/8") from Sam's Club. It is just what I asked for. I mean what more does a girl need than 500 paper bags and Pinterest-it's a match made in heaven. So I decided that this year I am going to try and do 1 project using paper bags a month (at least , though I might be an overachiever). So for this month I thought I would show you how to use paper bags to make a coupon book for your kids. There are always coupon books for kids to make for parents but how about one that you make for your kids.
The one that I made has 6 coupons so you will need 6 bags. I do have a link to the coupons however they are not rewritable (because I am not smart enough to figure that out-so if you know how please share that info) so if you are good with the coupons I came up with then please feel free to download and print them to use. If you would like a set of blank coupons sent to you please send me an e-mail.1. You will start by putting all 6 bags together and stitching through the bottom end (eyelets, brads or staples would probably work too).
Then place the bags with the flap side up. This will become the top of your coupon book.
3. The next step is to decorate the front. I cut a piece of cardstock the same width as the bags and large enough to cover the bottom flap of the paper bags. I also cut a small embellishment piece that I punched with a scallop punch and also the cover.
5. If you want you can stitch over the end of the cover paper again if you want-just adds a little extra detail.
And there you have it. A cute and easy Valentines Day coupon book for your kids. Of course you could use the same idea for husbands or boyfriends, or even grandparents.
