Third Day of Christmas: Coupon Book

Kim Holmes from our Design Team created this fun project with our Polar Expression Collection. It's a "Countdown to Christmas Coupon Book" and yes you can really tear the coupons out of the book because the pages are perforated. Instructions for creating this fun project are listed below all the pictures.




Instructions:

Step #1 – Cut 24 pieces of matching cardstock 3 x 6

Step #2 – Cut 2 pieces of chipboard 3 x 6.5

Step #3 – Using the perforation blade of your cutter – perforate all cardstock pieces 1.5 inches down from one end

Step #4 – Round bottom 2 corners of cardstock and chipboard --- opposite end from perforation

Step #5 – Using Bind-it-All --- punch holes in all pieces of cardstock and chipboard

Step #6 – Layer pieces as follows: chipboard, cardstock color #1, cardstock color #2, cardstock #3, repeat using all cardstock and finish with back piece of chipboard.

Step #7 – Decorate all pages being careful not to cover perforation marks!
