As I posted about earlier, after a good amount of research (ok, I just asked my married friends) I learned that the guest book is not usually seeked out and if it is, people just sign their name. Therefore, I didn’t want to spend too much time or energy on it, so I decided to just whip it up with a kit from Paper-Source.
Here are a few pics from the process and the final result. Using the kit, it was quite easy.
You start by cutting out your cover paper to 2 inches bigger than the cover board and gluing that on…
Then cut the book tape to be 2 inches longer than the cover board and attach the hinge board to the cover board with it…
Make an inside cover that is 1/4 inch smaller than the book board on all sides and glue that onto the back of the book board. Then you simply put together all the pages with the binding screws.
Here is a pic of the final product!
It took about an hour to make and that was with me cutting everything and making the pretty piece with our names for the cover.
Stay tuned as the DIY projects are in full-swing this week!
