Mahalo expert Keltie Colleen shows you how to make a coupon book to give as a Christmas gift.

When making homemade Christmas gifts, a coupon book can be a simple and economical gift to make for friends and family. A
coupon book is a book with redeemable coupons on the pages. The coupons are from the giver of the coupon book to the receiver of the coupon book to use when they would like throughout the year. Christmas coupons can be for things that the giver of the coupon book can do for the other person like take out the trash, make dinner or give a back massage.

For people are looking for ways to cut back on expenses, coupon books can help decrease the expense of
Christmas gift giving. Some recipients may even enjoy the services provided by the coupons better then a traditional gift.http://www.howtodothings.com/holidays/how-to-make-a-coupon-book-for-a-fathers-day-gift

Christmas coupon books can be simple and quick to complete. The instructions given below will help you complete a coupon book for any member of your family or a friend.

Step 1: Gather The Supplies

The materials needed will depend on how you decide to make your coupon book. This coupon book uses construction paper for the front and back pages. Some materials and tools needed are:

Construction paper

Printer paper


Paper punch

Decorative ribbon


Colored pencils


Other decorative materials can be used to make the coupon book more personal.

Step 2: Put Together the Coupon Book

Using scissors, cut 11 strips of paper of about 3×8 inches in size, and stack the strips on top of one another. Colored construction paper can be mixed with white paper to add some variety. The first and last pieces of paper should be construction paper. A paper punch should be used on the left side of the stack to make two holes about one inch apart. Loop ribbon through the holes and then tie. This secures the stacks of paper together.http://www.howtodothings.com/holidays/how-to-make-a-coupon-book-for-a-fathers-day-gift

Step 3: Decorate The Coupon Book

The first page of the coupon stack is the cover. You can add a title, your name as the gift giver and whom it is for. Christmas decorations can be added to the front cover using stickers and glitter. You can use crayons and colored pencils to draw or color on the page.

On each of the coupon pages, you should write a chore or activity that you would do for or with the recipient. Think about what the person would like, and make the book personal to them.
