Making Your Own Guest Book for Special Occasions
Everyone loves finding ways to remember special occasions–from scrapbooks to photo albums, we all want to relive those poignant moments over and over again. A guest book is a personal and elegant way to commemorate an event, as you will have special individualized messages from guests to read and remember for years to come. Instead of purchasing a pre-made guest book, consider making one on your own for that added touch of personal styling.
The title page is an area of the guest book where you can get extra crafty. It’s a blank slate, so you can really dress it up for your needs. For a wedding, consider placing a photo of the happy couple prominently. For a christening, an image of the little baby works great. Embellish with buttons, cut outs, ribbons, gems, and more depending on how over the top you want it to look. You can also choose a color scheme to work with the event. Also, make sure to write a date and title on the title page, either with a printout or using a calligraphy technique.
Make sure to add enough pages to the book for the number of guests attending the event. Include spaces for signatures, personal messages, and a date. You might want to think ahead and create individualized pages for each guest. You can even attach photos of the specific guest to a page, indicating that this is where that guest should sign. Have a high quality pen nearby for the signing.
Choosing the book itself to use in this project is key, as you will want a high quality book that will last you for decades. You want it to be sleek and stylish as well. To browse some styles and colors to find a look that best fits what you’re looking for your event, you can visit Rustico Leather.
