To commemorate the day I wanted to share with all of you one of the Valentine's Day gifts I made for the hubby :)
When searching for a Christmas gift for Cameron I came across a love coupon book at Barnes and Noble and thought it was a really cute idea, but not all of the coupons were really "us" (for lack of a better way of putting it). Even though I didn't like all of the coupons I still thought the idea was really cute and stored it away to use at a later date. When Valentine's Day rolled around, Cameron and I decided not to do big expensive gifts, but rather cute, inexpensive gifts that made us think of the other person. And in comes the stored away idea of a coupon book :)
To make his coupon book I used 3 sheets of Valentine themed paper, a coupon template, rubber cement, and some ribbon to tie it all together.
I started by making a coupon template in Word where I could right what the coupon was for. I used Word because I am not computer savvy, but if you have photoshop I'm sure yours would look way cooler ;) I wanted the coupon part to be able to lay on top of the fun Valentine paper and have the paper visible around the edges so I was able to get four coupon blurbs (?) on one page.
Once I cut all of the coupons out I simply wrote fun activities and ways to serve him that he would enjoy. This was the best part of making the coupon book on my own! I was able to really think about the hubby and what would brighten his day :)
I attached the coupon blurbs to the paper, whole punched all of them on one end, and secured the together with a cute bow :)
The hubs thought it was really fun and he's excited to use all of them :) I may just have to make him another one for a different occasion!
