Scrap Box Sunday: Voucher Book

This isn't really a tutorial, more of an idea, but it's definitely a scrap buster and a great gift!

My mum has always loved having her hair brushed, but I've never been a girly girl and never voluntarily wanted to do it. So, when I was little I used to give mum hair brushing vouchers for presents. Last Christmas, mum requested hair brushing vouchers! So here's the voucher book I made! You can of course make vouchers for anything :D

Please forgive me blurring out mum's name and my signature ;)

I used pearly silver, light teal and gold card stock for these cards, then punched two holes in the side of each and threaded ribbon through to turn the vouchers into a book :D

I printed out the text onto normal white paper and cut each into a neat rectangle, then embellished each card individually!

For the front voucher, I used some pearly scrap book paper behind the voucher text and embellished with a gold cat and curtain sticker. Finally, I attached a key charm with ribbon through it with a dab of glue.

For this one, I cut out the green and blue cats from wrapping paper, used gold stickers for the top and bottom of the voucher, and finished it off with a green ribbon and gold buckle embellishment.

This time I used a section of scrapbook paper trimmed around a pattern I particularly liked, and embellished with gold rose and bubble stickers.

I used the same scrapbook paper as above, but a different section of the pattern, and again embellished with some gold stickers - a border sticker and a 3D heart. I also used some white "lace" sticker on the left side, but it's a bit hard to see.

This time I used some green patterned pearly scrap book paper, and some plain gold wrapping paper which I added texture to using a plastic texture "rubbing" board. Again, embellished with gold stickers ;) You can tell I collect stickers!!

Scrapbook paper cut using my special scissors down the bottom, sort of like "grass" with the gold sky behind it, and embellished with gold stickers again. I think this is my favourite even though it's very simple!

I used that pretty green pearly scrapbook paper again, with ribbon down each edge of it and gold border stickers on the edges of the voucher. I used a few gold 3D heart stickers to finish it off.

So there you have it! I hope that's inspired you to make your own voucher books out of your left over scrapbooking supplies :D
