Cut 2 pieces of chipboard (or cereal box) to 8 x 3 1/2.
Cut 2 pieces of cardstock to 12 x 3
Accordian fold both pieces
Cut 2 pieces of cardstock to cover the chipboard and cut 2 pieces cardstock at 8 x 2 1/2 to make the bottom and the top. Score the bottom and top pieces 1/4 inch in on the long sides. Use adhesive to connect all pieces.
Cut white cardstock at 8 x 3 1/2 (cut as many pieces as you desire pockets)
Use adhesive to connect the white cardstock to your accordian folds. Press the adhesive down well.
This is what the inside looks like
Connect the accordian folds to the front and back cover with really tacky tape.
Make sure you firmly press down all of the adhesive.
Add some type of fastener to hold your organizer closed.
The finished product
A completely customizable coupon organizer. Add tabs, embellisment or whatever you like to make the organizer completly unique! Have fun creating this and then have fun saving money!
