Take a peak at this handmade Wedding Guest Book
Today I have another project share. I have been so busy creating this month…it’s been great! However, it’s been a test on my productivity to get them completed on a schedule.
Today’s project I will be sharing with you is a Wedding Guest Book/ Photo Book.
This book is 7 by 9 inches because I made it to fit perfectly in a Kikki K box that one of my planners came in (you got to recycle). The colours from the box went perfectly with the colours from the book.
I started by cutting the front and back chipboard covers to size and backed it with First Edition Paper by Katie Pertiet…the collection is called The Promise. Then I cut several pieces of paper to size from the same collection to fit inside.
I then purchased a digital file from an Etsy store called AmazingClipart of silhouettes of a married couple in different poses. I printed the images onto cream card stock to be placed in the bottom right hand corner of every other page.
I also borrowed a passage / poem I found on Pinterest to print onto the cream card stock for the introduction page. The passage read;
A precious collection of memories, this guest book is meant to be. Take your time and collect your thoughts, then write them down for posterity. You might choose words of wisdom, encouragement or a joke. Possibly a poem, a funny drawing or a wedding anecdote. Whatever your means of expression, our gratitude we cannot measure. This guest book will be, no doubt, an heirloom we will treasure.
Then I printed the happy couples name and date of the wedding onto another piece of paper, which I used a big circle die cutter to cut it out.
After I cut the paper to size with the printed images and writing on, I also added a piece of velum to add at the front before the introduction page. Then it was ready for the binding!
For the front cover I added the circle die cut, another die cut I did of a wedding dress and a silhouette I had printed out and fussy cut. After they were down, I finished it off with the gorgeous Wild Orchid Craft flowers.
Check out the flip through I did for a closer look;
This book is the perfect book for a wedding as people can leave a message for the bride and groom and then the bride and groom can add pictures from the special day at a later date.
This was something different for me to create, I am used to making big thick chunky books but I didn’t want to add to many pages because whenever I look at other guest books there is so many empty pages left…I wanted this book to feel full with photos and messages and not just half full and uncompleted.
