Scratch Off Coupons

Finished cards
I saw a post on pinterest linking to  I thought it would be a great idea for my shop, but also for fun notes for my family.  After all everyone enjoys a good surprise.
A full sheet of cards

I started with the design I created for the labels on my soaps.  I changed it a little bit to put my information over the letter design.  Next I added the information to be discovered underneath.

The tape

The information is then covered with a piece of scotch tape.  I put the tape on before I cut the cards apart.  This gave me a nice clean edge on the tape.

Cutting strips

Next I cut strips along the width of the page.

Cutting individual cards

After that I cut each strip into individual cards.

Covering with paint

After cutting the cards apart I mixed 1 part dish soap with 2 parts paint.  I put 2 coats on each strip.  A single coat actually cover the wording fairly well, but I used a second coat just to be on the safe side.

As you can see the scratch off strip works great.  And this will be a wonderful thing to add to any orders that ship from my shop.
They scratch off nicely  ;)
