Mix it UP: DIY Coupon Holder!


Cut 'n' Boss Design Team: Alexia Misso Cycle 10

We have an awesome DIY gift idea! Alexia Misso created this cool coupon holder that can easily be turned into a gift! 

See her tutorial below!


Good day everyone! It’s Alexia here today to share a project created using Craftwell dies with you! The memory collection dies are so beautiful and perfect for all sort of paper crafting projects! I like the tabs and the title sentiments, they are so cute! So I created this coupon/gift card organizer to help keep my coupons and gift cards organized. If you shop regularly this will come in handy! You can also use this for other purposes such as recipe card holder, use the tabs/dividers as category separator.

Here is the front of the folder, love the cut-out embellishments from the dies.
And here is the inside, look at those tabs! Aren't they looking fabulous?!


If you wish to have one of this, I have a tutorial on how to make it below.

Tutorial starts here:
Step 1: Prepare a 12 x 12 card stock, score all lines in black and discard bottom section


Step 2: Cut scored card stock in step 1 to picture shown below:



Step 3: Score card stock (the blue lines) as shown in picture below and remove the sections in red, fold scored lines.


Step 4: Cut three card stocks at 3.75 (H) x 6.75” (L) and two card stocks at 3.25 (H) x 6.75” (L)



Step 5: Apply adhesives on the back of the card stock pieces from Step 4



Step 6: Adhere card stock pieces to the folder which is the result from Step 3.

Adhere the shorter card stock pieces in the front of the folder such as following:


Step 7: Start embellishing! Run Teresa Collins’ Craftwell dies through the Cut n’ Boss machine and embellish the folder



Step 8: To make the fasteners for the folder, insert a 12” long twine into the button, make a knot. Using a hot glue gun, glue the button to the opening/closing flap of the folder.


I use another bow button from Prima, glue half way into the punched hole on the back of the folder. If you use a regular button, you do not need to punch a hole, simply glue down on the folder (make sure there is enough room around button when you fastening it with the twine.



That’s it! Now you have a handy coupon organizer of your own! Oh yes, I also embellished the sides with lace ribbons, this step is optional though.






I hope you like this project as much as I do! Thank you for visiting Craftwell blog today, truly appreciate your time!
