Moments Inked Coupon Book...

If you are like me, you are loving all these Moments Inked stamps and dies.  I love being able to personalize my planner and make lists and lists and more lists.  Did I mention I love lists?

The great thing about all these fun tools, is that they are so very versatile.  I have a not-so-typical-planner post today, to share a little coupon book I made using a couple of the Moments Inked dies...and several other fun Papertrey Ink goodies.  I will link and list everything at the end of this post.   Let's get started.

First off here is the cover to the coupon book.  I wanted to make something for my daughter...a little back to school gift with some uplifting sentiments, mixed with a fun little treat on the back of each page.

I used one of the Moments Inked: Basic Page dies to make this little book.  I die cut 6 pages in kraft card stock.  On each page, I added the perforated line die with the MI Edge Dies.  I also added in some lines to add that notebook look, using a stamp from the Listed set.  For the cover, I added in an apple die from Enclosed: Apple with a  sentiment from Lunchbox Love.

**Let's quickly chat about the Lunchbox Love set.  I love this set so much.  All the sentiments and the fonts are so amazing and so good for kids of any age.  A must have for your stash!

OK back to the book...I made a pencil tag using the Pencil Me In die and stamp set.  I popped a hole in the eraser end and tied it up with a bow on the spiral binding.  What is that spiral binding you ask? Well, I found an old spiral notebook that my daughter wasn't using and snipped a piece off.  It twists right into place!

On the back of each page I ATG'd a coupon I printed out from this site HERE.  And then to the front of each page, I added in a little inspirational message.

The second page uses Enclosed: Star die and stamp set.  I cut out the back with some vellum just so it would stand out from the background lines.

Page 3 is decorated with another Lunchbox Love sentiment and a butterfly die...

I used the Shaker Shapes: Pencil die on this page, along with another Lunchbox Love sentiment....

I cut a simple circle and added in this fun sentiment and smily face....both from Lunchbox Love.

The last page features a "hugs" die with a message I want to pass along to her for this first year of middle school.

The lines on every page can be used for personalized notes or just decoration.  Here is a quick close up of the perforated line so each page can be ripped off and the coupon redeemed.  This perforated line die is so handy for a coupon book making your own lists that can be ripped off.  It's also a fun detail to add onto a card front.
