My dd is having a fall wedding. I made this guest book for her. It has a matte board cover with the "velveteen" paper covering the matte board. I ironed the leaf prints into it. There are 2 sheets of copper cs glued to the back of the cover, with a ribbon in between on the seam so it can bend without too much wear on the cs. I used Terrifically Tacky Tape, the sheets, to adhere the cover paper. There is an extra piece of ribbon also on the inside. I scored the cs and filler pages with my cutter. The back cover is one solid piece of matte board.
The binding holes were punched with the Crop-a-dile and I used a home made needle (out of a large paper clip) for threading the ribbon through. The letters are cut out on the Cuttlebug and I used the Xyron for the attaching glue.
The rectangle was cut out of the center at a frame shop. The names & date are on creme vellum. The inside pages are very vanilla cs with browish lines and the word guest on each page, 9 lines to a page.
The whole book is about 7" x 11 1/2" x 1/2".
It was really fun to make and I hope she likes it!
