Altered Coupon Book






I was so excited to see fabric come out in the new Holiday Mini that I knew I'd have to cover some buttons for a project. I took a cheap $1.00 store coupon book and altered it.
I used the new Deck the Halls DSP, but I thought some of the designs would work great for that vintage look. I thought you could use it for a nice coupon book, for say...coupons. LOL Or I wanted  to use it as an encouragement booklet to give a friend. I have four Tags with different sayings on each, and I then thought it would be nice to add scripture verses, or coupons for free gifts such as babysitting, massage, etc. Tell me what you think.

Very cute idea! I know You have the covered buttons and they are raised like the covered cordury buttons, but how about using some of the retired buttons to cover! Good saver and You recycle some retired items??? Just a thought! Too bad they don't come in the A2 size to use for cards???
