Shopping List and Coupon Holder

I created a customizable shopping list and coupon holder using my Bind-it-All. The book holds the notepads you can purchase; they have a magnet on the back. This was designed so I could refill with a new notepad. The ribbon wraps around the book and holds the notepad in place.

The book holds envelopes that are used for coupons. The envelopes can be customized to hold coupons and can be labeled in the same order as your store layout. The number of envelopes is up to you and can be replaced easily when damaged or worn.

I have created a tutorial with pictures and it is available for a small fee of $3.49.  The tutorial shows how to wrap the ribbon around the book to hold in the notepad.  Just click on the Buy Now Button at the bottom of this posting.  Once you payment is cleared, an Adobe PDF file will be emailed to you.
