Perfect as a present for Mum or just to store your treasures
I made this for my mum for Mother's Day. You can buy these coupons in the shop but they're not always suitable to each person so this way it's customized to your needs and it looks a lot better!

All I did was measure a piece of paper that would be big enought to wrap around the matchbox and adhered it to the box with double sided tape. I was short on inspiration to decorate the box so to make it quick and simple I wrote "Mum" in a white gel pen, added a ribbon by sticking double sided tape over the back of the ribbon and trimming off the excess and adhering and added a rub-on as the final touch.

For the coupons I made a template and cut out about 7 coupons and stuck card to the back to make them stronger. I then wrote on the front and added a rub-on.

What I wrote on the coupons-
one hug, help with the gardening, control of the remote for an evening, one home cooked meal, one lot of washing up, a sleep in, a day to yourself
