Back to School Coupon Book

I was up on the SRM Stickers Blog the other day but I thought I would post it here too.

A couple of years ago I made my husband a 'Date a Month' coupon book for our anniversary.  Included with each month was a date and the money to pay for it (dinner, weekend away, lunch, etc).  My oldest daughter really liked it and said she wanted one.  Well in preparation of her heading off to University in the fall I decided to make her a monthly coupon book.  We all know that students don't have a lot of extra cash so each month I have included something fun for her (pre paid Visa, movie tickets, restaurant gift certificate, etc).  I have been slowly filling the book and have just a few months left to fill before I give it to her in September.  To create the book I used some kraft cardstock from Studio Calico and the Paper & Glue Collection by Echo Park.  The school themed stickers were perfect for adding some extra little details.  I used the Calendar Month Small- Sleek to label each month and then added little extra bits from the Express Yourself - School and the Express Yourself - High School sets.  Finally, as always some twine from The Twinery adds a nice finishing touch.
