Download these free printable mothers day coupons to make a sweet homemade gift for your mom! I'll also show you how to make the coupons into a cute "matchbook" style booklet that your mom can keep in her purse.
You can download the coupons in a couple of different versions. Some of them have messages already on them, and some are blank in case you want to write your own messages by hand. Also, some of them have a vintage parchment-look background, while others have a plain white background.
For the coupons that come with messages, the messages are:
Want to write your own messages on the coupons using your computer? Get yourself a copy of the free Foxit PDF reader, which lets you annotate pdf files. Then you can use the Foxit "comment tool" to write your own messages on the blank coupons.
If you'd like to write your own messages on the blank coupons using your computer, then the easiest way is to download the free Foxit PDF reader. You can then use the Foxit "comment tool" which lets you write anywhere on a PDF file. The font I used is called "Papyrus".
First up, gather your materials. You'll need:
Print and cut out the coupons.
Cut out a strip of cardstock. You want it to be a little bit wider than a coupon, and a little bit longer than twice as long. The piece I've used here is 15.5 × 4.5 cm (about 6" × 1¾").
Lay your coupons on top of the strip of card like this:
Fold over the left edge of the card over the coupons and staple in place, like this.
If you have trouble getting the staple to go all the way through the coupons and card, then you can sew them in place with a needle and thread instead. Poke a holes through each coupon individually first, then tie with needle and thread.
Fold the right half of the card over to the left, and tuck it in under the little flap. Now your coupon book closes like a matchbook.
Now you can decorate your coupon booklet however you like. I used a some different colored papers, a bit of ribbon, and a Mum sticker I found lying around in my craft box. If you're American, you probably think I spelled "Mum" wrong, but that's just how we spell it in England or Australia :-)
