Wedding Guest book

I have been super busy these past few weeks making wedding invitations for my son and his fiance's wedding August 1st.  They also asked me if I could do the guest book.  This is what I have come up with so far.  They are planning a rustic and small wedding and want to use lots of burlap for their decorations.

I started with a piece of 8" X 8" chipboard that I covered with plain burlap.  I then added a strip of printed burlap that had a lace pattern on it.  In the middle of that I added some Ivory lace and then another smaller piece of lace with an ivory ribbon running through it.

The purple flower was actually a white crocheted flower that I sprayed with some purple fabric paint.  The button was a black button with a design around the outer edge that I then used my finger and some silver alcohol ink to stain it silver.  I adhered the button to the center of the flower using glossy accents.  I also added some silk baby's breath in purple and white to the larger purple flower..  I inked a couple of Tim Holtz tickets with some vintage photo distress ink and using Glossy Accents adhered them just underneath the flower.  On the other side of the flower I added one of the message keys that says LOVE and again, lightly stained it with the Silver Ink.

The Today, tomorrow and forever was one of the items that came with my Minc. I ran it through the Minc and foiled it with silver foil. I then distressed the white tag with Vintage Photo distress ink and adhered it with Glossy Accents.  I set a metal coffee mug on it to weight it down while it dried and ended up with this marbled effect on the sign. I also ran the Mr and Mrs through the Minc. the XO's scatter across the bottom are from a Memory Box die called Hugs and Kisses.

The bottom picture is the pages for the inside of the guest book.  I am going to use my Cinch to bind it all together.

Thanks for stopping buy.
