DIY Coupon Sleeves

Yay!

::   ::   ::

After seeing this pin for DIY coupon holders (by  Erin at Taking Time to Create),

I decided to give it a try…

::   ::   ::

The first thing I did was to measure out my grid…

I used a baseball card sleeve that I currently have in my coupon binder as a template…

::   ::   ::

Then I just slid it into a clear sheet protector…

::   ::   ::

Next I slid the page under the needle on my sewing machine and followed the lines!

Make sure to backstitch each end to make sure that you’re stitches don’t come out!

::   ::   ::

Almost done!

With a very light touch, carefully slide an exacto knife’s blade

just under the first row of horizontal stitches, being careful not to cut into the stitching…

Be sure to flip it over & do the backside too…

The bonus in

DIY-ing these coupon holders is that they are double-sided!

::   ::   ::

So simple!

I would have never thought to use my sewing machine to do a project like this…

but in the space of about 20 minutes,

I had five, new, double-sided coupon sleeves!

And for about half the price of store-bought baseball card sleeves :’)
