Coupon Holder!


So Since I have been getting into coupons lately. I noticed that they were laying everywhere. In a drawer in the kitchen, On the living room table, On the floor, On the dining table! They were getting out of control! I was thinking I wanted to buy a coupon holder, but then my thrifty side got the best of me and I decided...No I dont need to buy one, I need to make one!(my pile of coupons)

My new favorite thing is felt. I have been making little felt things for many up coming post! Felt it so cheap and you would be amazed how many different things you can make with it!

So I sat down to make a coupon holder/carrier with felt!!

First I took a full sheet of felt and just folded it in 3rds, kind of like a pamphlet.
I pinned the bottom fold in place to keep it in place so I could stitched up the sides!
This is what it looks like with the sides stitched up.
Then I cut a slit the size of the button I had picked out. And I made stitching around it just so it didn't fray or stretch out with time. Im sure it will anyways, But I wanted to slow it down a little bit.
Then I stitched on the button. Lime green of course :)
Then I tested it to make sure it went threw the hole I cut for it!
then I cut out a little cupcake out of felt and gave it little sprinkles on top!
(click the picture to enlarge and see the sprinkles better!)
I put all of my coupons in and they fit perfect!
I love it!
It cost me 25 cents for the purple felt
the rest of the stuff was on hand...So 25 cents was cheaper than I could buy one for I'm sure!

Happy Crafting.

    Very cute holder and great job on it. Felt is a good idea because it's so very flexible. I recently bought a new coupon holder but it feels too stiff. (Haven't tried it out yet though) But it has several compartments, so maybe it'll be ok cuz I like to have my coupons a bit organized if I can.

    Take care~
