Its a June wedding -
I have a lot of adorable wedding projects to share - DIY is the name of the game here, you know...
The bride to be wanted her guest book to be similar to this Martha Stewart guest book:
So, we created our own adorable little envelopes and insert cards for her guests to jot down a wish for the happy couple or great marriage advice....
Transfer your template to the paper. You could also print it, but I traced each envelope because I was putting two on a page and I had to manipulate the position of the template to make it fit.
Cut out the envelope. (I doubled up on paper, cutting two sheets at a time).
Using a straight edge or ruler, fold the envelope sides. It's important to get these straight or square - and in the right spot...
And they look super cute tucked into the envelopes with that lacy edge showing...
UPDATE: See the finished project!
We added ribbon and a lacy rosette flower to the front of this plain black book
We were able to fit 4 envelopes to a page, and used the opposite side to display photos of the happy couple. The flowers accenting the page are 'Brides Confetti," from Michaels.
The best part about this project is the wonderful keepsake we have created.
Photos and wishes from friends and family. What could be better?
The book was created especially for scrapbooks, the photos were attached with archival quality glue dots. We used Recollections cardstock from Michaels - the package we purchased had 5 shades of purple - to create the envelopes.
