Mother’s Day is coming around again and if you’re anything like me, it’s always a struggle to figure out a heartfelt gift for Mom when she already has everything she could ever want. Or maybe you’re on a budget this year but still want to give your mom something really special.
So I’m going to show you how to make a tear out coupon book for Mother’s Day to give your mom this year! The best part is that this diy coupon booklet will make a great gift idea for mom for Christmas or birthdays too! And moms always love homemade gifts 🙂
I made the printable Mother’s Day coupons so that you can write in the things you want to give your mom. I felt like this would make the coupon book perfect for kids or adults to give their moms.
What’s really great about a tear out coupon book is that your mom can tear off the coupons as she wants to use them without having to take the booklet apart like she would if you attach the coupons in any other way. It’s like a notepad.
Last year I made printable Best Mom and Grandma Mother’s Day Certificates that were so easy and inexpensive. They were a huge hit. So I wanted to make something that is still inexpensive, but also really meaningful.

How To Make A Tear Out Coupon Book For Mother’s Day

Make them as straight as possible to make it easier to line up when you add the padding compound.
You can use a paper cutter like this one to get perfectly straight lines.

Align the edges of the coupons for Mom.
Stand the stack on the left hand end against a counter or flat surface to get the edges in perfect alignment.
Secure the Mother’s Day coupons.
While still holding the stack against the flat surface, clip the binder clips or clothespins one on each side to hold the stack in place.
Apply the padding compound the the edge of the coupons for mom.
Get your paint brush wet and remove excess water.
Dip your brush into the padding compound.
Working from the center to the edge, brush a generous coat of padding compound on the left hand edge of your coupon stack. Be careful not to let it go over the edges, but if it does, just wipe it with your finger or a paper towel to remove the excess.
Add a second coat of padding compound to the Mother’s Day coupon book.
Allow to dry and then add a second coat and allow to dry again.
That’s it! You’re coupon booklet is finished!
