Print and Cut Gift Idea

I want to share my idea for a gift for my partner, that I made using the 'print and cut' feature of my Silhouette Cameo.

He likes books. Specifically, he likes books on politics and current affairs, so it is best to buy them when they are newly published. I looked at subscription services but I thought he might inadvertently end up receiving a cookery book, which would not please him! So instead, I've made book tokens dated one a month for the next three months. Every month he writes the name of the latest book he wants on the voucher, gives it back to me, and I will order him the book.

I made the vouchers in Silhouette Studio by tracing a shape, adding patterns from a digital version of Echo Park Sweet Day, adding the text and cutting them on the Silhouette electronic cutting machine.
