Tomorrow I will be my family celebrating my in-laws 40th Wedding Anniversary, so I wanted to share with you something I made for their party. As there are going to be over 100 guests (family and friends) they wanted to have a book where everyone could leave their special messages for the happy couple. I offered to make the book look pretty for my mother-in-law so she left it with me the day before she left for Holland. I decided to do it with a little vintage flair, something pretty but not completely over the top feminine.
This is what the book looked like originally, plain cream with not much creation to it
and this is the finished look on the outside
Here is the inside, I took a photo of their original wedding invitation, printed it out on some pretty paper then mounted it on the inside cover. Added some edge punching to give a lacy effect and some flower stickers, and voila, that's all there is to it. I figured I would let them write on the first page!
This is the page before the guests write their messages and it looked a little plain so I added the sentiment and a lace tulip (appropriate for the Dutch don't you think!), then added the ribbon page marker with a pretty metal and glass charm. I had fun with this book and I sure hope my in-laws will like it!
Thanks for stopping by, tomorrow I will share something else my hubby and I made for them.
Enjoy your day!
