Mother's Day Coupon Book
by Amanda Formaro

Mom can relax this Mother's Day once you hand her this book of coupons redeemable for chores and special favors! 

Your mom will appreciate this gift and remember it forever, and she'll love when you help her out with the dishes, or take out the garbage. Use our coupon designs or make your own by simply filling in the blank!

What you'll need:

½ sheet cardstock
2 paper fasteners or stapler
Hole punch or sharpened pencil
Paper cutter
Stickers, foam stickers, markers, or anything else you would like to decorate with
Patterns (optional)

How to make it:
  1. Print out coupon patterns, as many as you like. (like "One Back Rub", "One Bubble Bath" or "One Breakfast")
  2. Fill in the blanks on any of the coupons that are not filled out.
  3. Use a paper cutter or scissors to cut out the coupons. 
  4. Use a pencil to sketch around a coupon onto the cardstock, about 1/2" larger than the coupon. 
  5. Cut the cardstock using the sketched line as a guide, cut two pieces for the cover and the back.
  6. Use a hole punch or a sharpened pencil to poke holes in the coupons and the cardstock and assemble with the paper fasteners. Or you can simply staple the booklet together. 
  7. Decorate the front cover with markers, stickers, foam stickers, or whatever else you like.
