The One with Allie and Tori's Wedding Sign-In Books


Tuesday, April 9, 2013

I do love a good excuse to make books! 

My little sister is getting married THIS SATURDAY (Washington here we come!) and a friend I've known since elementary school is getting hitched this summer! Both of them asked me to make their wedding sign-in books, how could I say no? :)

Here is Allie's book:
It's 5 1/2 x 7 1/2" with wooden hobby boards for the cover. (Thank you Blake for cutting the wood boards for me!)
The pages are made from a mix of patterned papers, glittered papers, plain vellum, patterned vellum, regular printer paper, cardstock, and my favorite - FELT! Yup, felt pages. Adds a little texture and softness. And everything is in Allie's wedding colors.

I bound the book copic style using gold baker's twine.
Allie is going to have a photobooth at her reception where people can then take their photo, adhere it into this book with a little washi tape, and write a note to the lovebirds. Precious.
Love you Allie! SO EXCITED FOR YOU!

And here is Tori's book:
 It's also 5 1/2 x 7 1/2" with wooden hobby board covers that have been painted black.
 It's a copic style binding and it's sewed together using silver string.

The pages are made from a mix of patterned papers, cardstock, glittered paper, and patterned vellum - all in her wedding color scheme of black, white, and silver/gray.


Congrats on your upcoming wedding Tori!
 'Tis the season of weddings!
