Valentine Coupons

Valentine's Day on bed rest is challenging! Let's get real. Shopping is out of the question (unless it's online shopping) and most activities are too.

Greg and I prefer to "do" something for V-Day instead of buy gifts and we take turns planning it. This was my year to plan. 

I decided to make coupons for Greg to use. I created the coupons using Photoshop and digital scrapbooking kits. (you can find a ton of free kits online to download) I cut out each coupon and decided to put them in their own envelopes so it was a suprise to what the coupon was.

For the envelope I found a template that I used when I was teaching and picked out paper.

I traced the pattern on the back of the paper, cut them out, folded and glued them together. I also punched holes in the coupons and looped ribbon through them so they were easier for hubby to pull out of the envelope.


Then I decided to put all then envelopes in a container. I found a small paint can that was left over from a previous project and decided to cover it and put everything in there. I measured the can and cut strips of paper to wrap around it.




I added some ribbon to cover where the two strips met and added some paper flowers. Since this was for hubby I tried not to use too much pink and red.


I measured and cut a circle for the top to match my accent paper.


Then I put the envelopes inside with a few other items just for hubby.
