My Creative Time's 3-D Wednesday ~ Father's Day Coupons!

Hello!

Today at My Creative Time, Emma has challanged us on the Design Team to REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE!!!!  Some people think "going green" is something new, however our family has been recycling for years! There are days that I feel a bit guilty for using so much paper with my hobbie and that's why I save all my scraps! 

Have you ever been to a restaurant were they use the card board coasters?  Well, we go quite frequently, so I grab them when we leave.  They're just going to throw them away!  So that's what I'm recycling today into a Father's Day Coupon Booklet!



I used real cork for the glasses


I added several type of coupons that I know my husband would like!


Recipe:
Restaurant Coasters
My Minds Eye paper
cork, button

Try to think of something you can REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE, and have fun!
Don't forget to check out my Design Teammates too!  I'll be back tomorrow with one more Father's Day Card!

Enjoy!

I LOVE this idea too! The burlap and dies all look perfect on there! Now, I need to find a restaurant that has these! This would be a great idea for a birthday gift book too, since I have Father's Day and then two days later, my hubby's birthday! Thank you for a fabulous idea!
