So while my sisters were in town, we crafted. All. night. long. It was nothing short of amazing. We made some Valentines Cards/Coupons for our husbands. They were SUPER easy and turned out really cute!
First, I thought of some coupons my husband would like... they're not all completely appropriate, so I won't list them all! ha ha!! A few include things like, a day full of nag free sports, wild cards, a morning to sleep in, a shoulder and back massage... you get the idea. Just come up with some things you think you're husband would like!
I typed what I wanted in a text box, right adjusted (so I could add cutsie paper to the left side of the coupon). After I printed them out, I simply cut them to the size I wanted. I used the text boxes to give me a basic outline.
After I printed them out, in pink, red and white, I added some cute scrapbook paper on one of the ends. I had a heart punch, so I added that in there too. I cut the ends of the paper with those pretty old school fancy schmancy scissors. Pretty fun.
Alright. The card itself. I took a 12x12 piece of scrapbook paper and cut it in half. Then I folded it in half. Not too hard. Then I cut out one rectangle in different paper, and glued it to the bottom of the inside card, to make what is now the folder pocket. Make sense?
This really didn't take long. I would guess, after coming up with the coupons, an hour. The right side has the coupons, and the left side, well I'm going to type up a really nice letter or something. Thoughtful, cheap and super cute. Hope you enjoy!
