Coupon Organizer Tutorial

I needed one of these coupon organizers, so I thought I would break out some scraps and make one!  It is just another accordion type book, but just in case you aren't familiar with how to make one, here it goes.
 I gathered my Bazzill envelopes, some chipboard, and my scraps from this paper pack.
 I sealed the envelopes, then cut a sliver off of the end.
 I put a strip of score tape down the middle, and stacked them.
I adhered 12 of them together.  They are big, measuring 7 1/4" x 5".
 I cut the chipboard back and front at 7 1/2" by 5 1/2".
 I covered the outside pieces of the chipboard, then got an eyelet and the elastic closure.  I love these, and I am almost out of them...MUST REORDER!
 I punched the hole, set the eyelet, and put the closure through the back piece of the chipboard.
 I covered the inside of the chipboard next, covering the closure ends.
 I adhered the envelopes inside the covers using the same method as adhering the envelopes to each other.
 Open...A nice big coupon book!
Since I didn't put a bottom on this book, it can open pretty wide!  This definitely wouldn't work for an extreme couponer...but it works for me!

Stay Crafty, My Friends!
