Cheap Father's Day Idea: The Coupon Book

IMG_9576

Max and I made this little coupon book and gave it to Byron for Valentine's Day but this project would make a great Father's day gift.

What I did: I scanned in several of Byron's neckties. I then used www.picnik.com to add text to the top of the necktie pattern. After I had several different looks and coupon sayings, I cropped, printed and stapled them together at the top. Very Easy!

Pick out your ties and scan them into jpg files

The last coupon says "Coffee on Us" and it included a Starbucks GC

Have fun with your own version!

I have seen coupon books before but I absolutely love how you used your husand's ties as the backdrop for yours. What a fun way to personalize what is a timeless classic idea for gift giving.
