Cultivating and maintaining adult friendships can be difficult with all of the other responsibilities we have in our lives. Use my Friendship Coupon Book project as an incentive to make the time for those relationships with some fun activities. Easy to create with just a few of my favorite Therm-O-Web Adhesives, and can be totally customized to focus on what you and your friends like to do. This post is sponsored by Therm-O-Web but the ideas and opinions are my own.

Here's how to create a Book of Coupons for a Friend:
To begin the Friendship Coupon Book, gather all supplies. Measure and cut a piece of 8.5″ by 11″ piece of white cardstock into eight rectangles 4.25″ wide by 2.75″ tall each. Place stamps from the Sprinkle Kindness, and the Me and My Peeps Clear Sets on acrylic stamp blocks, load with archival ink, and stamp onto each coupon. Mix and match the sentiments and images to create fun things to do with your friends. Add additional lettering with Tombow Dual Brush Pens.
Since these coupons are for my girlfriends, I like to add a bit of bling with Foil Transfer Sheets in Wagon Red, Magic Wand Silver, and Flamingo Pink. Apply lines of adhesive with the Memory Tape Runner XL, place foil dull side down, burnish gently with your finger, and lift to reveal the sparkle. Create dots of adhesive with ZOTS Singles, place foil dull side down, burnish gently with your finger and lift to uncover the shine. Apply custom areas of glue with Deco Foil Liquid Adhesive, which goes on white and dries clear, but remains tacky. Place foil dull side down into the cured adhesive, burnish gently with your finger then lift to discover the magic. I love that all of the Therm-O-Web adhesive work with the Foil Transfer Sheets because it gives me ALL the options!
Pre-heat the laminator. When the laminator is ready layer one Foil Transfer Sheet on top of one Pattern Toner Sheet and run it through the laminator in one direction. Rotate one-quarter turn, and run through the laminator a second time. Peel the foil away to expose the brilliance. The Foil Transfer Sheets stick to the black toner pattern of the papers when heated. MAGIC!
Accent the foiled pattern papers by adding a coordinating color to the white background with Tombow Dual Brush Pens. Color easily using the edge of the brush tip for maximum coverage. The ink doesn't stick to the foil. Cut the foiled colored papers to 4.50″ wide by 3″ tall with a paper trimmer. Attach each coupon to one of the foiled colored papers with the Memory Tape Runner XL.
Punch a hole in the top left-hand corner of each coupon, and then thread onto a large lobster claw style clip attached to a split ring. Tie assorted ribbon scraps onto the split ring, and trim any long ends with scissors.
