Default Help! Matboard Journal Question

I have a dillema. I need to make a matboard journal for a baby shower. There are 100 people invited and each person received a 4 X 6 inch index card to write their sentiments, etc. on. I was planning on putting them all the cards together in a matboard journal, putting one card on the front and back of each page, using photo corners to hold them in.

I figure that if even half of the guests bring their cards to put in the book, I will need at least 25 pages to put the index cards on. How many pages of US white will fit in a matboard journal and still allow you to view and turn the pages correctly? I really want to use cardstock as opposed to paper because I want it to be sturdy and last over time. However, I'm afraid that if I put too many cardstock pages in, the pages towards the back won't flip towards the front.

Are there any tricks I should use when scoring the pages, etc?

I really, really, really need help! The honoree is a fellow stamper and I know that she would really appreciate something handmade and stamped. However, I'm afraid I'm going to put in a lot of time on this project and not have it turn out the way I'm picturing it in my head. Not to mention wasting A LOT of cardstock if it doesn't work!

Use the Post bound page protectors, you could get some 8 1/2 x 11 ones and then two cards would easily fit inside because you really don't want to go over 10 pages in my experience.

Go as far as you can see, and when you get there, you will see farther.
