Yesterday, I explained my previous, not-working-for-me-anymore coupon photo album.
Click here to view Part 1.
My new coupon organizer is a binder with sheet protectors. I divided them into compartments with my sewing machine.
Here are the first steps to making my improved version.
- Sheet Protectors
- Printer Paper (different colors if available)
- Sewing Machine
- Craft Knife
Step 1 – Fold a sheet protector into fourths. This creases the sheet protector and provides sewing lines.
Step 2 – Using a craft knife (I recommend putting a cutting mat underneath), locate the horizontal creases on your sheet protector (my sheet protector is turned landscape/sideways in the picture above). Cut a line underneath the horizontal crease, but do not cut on the vertical crease. You should then have two horizontal slits under the horizontal crease on either side of the vertical crease.
Step 3 – Check that your hand can pass through all layers of the sheet protector. This is very important. Notice that the slit does not go all the way across the sheet protector. There is a slit on either side of the vertical crease.
Check back tomorrow for the final steps on how to build your homemade coupon organizer!
