Coffee for a Month Birthday Book

One of my mom's friends just celebrated a birthday and was looking for something unique to give her since she has EVERYTHING. She came up with a great idea that I was able to turn into a {great ;-)} project!

I used the same process to make this Coffee for a Month book as I did to make these Birthday Card books forever ago. 

There are 5 pages and each is listed with a day of the week. The green color is hard to see here, but in real life it pops! She put enough money to buy coffee for 4 Mondays in this pocket. She then did the same with Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday... a month of coffee money!

Since the back of each page has a pocket too, I made little tags that will pull out. On each tag my mom wrote a special quote, memory, or thought to share with her BFF. This way as she flips through the book she'll have something to make her smile.

You can see with having only five pages the book isn't thick at all! I love that. I used the 1" cinch binding in red and tied it up with cute ribbon that matches the birthday themed paper. I (of course!) used my new Cricut Explore to cut the word "coffee," the phrase "love you a latte" and my very own favorite KB font welded to write each day of the week.
