Hi Guys! Today is Saturday so I spent the morning doing my usual "Saturday Scrounging" at the local thrift stores. I have been looking for Hilary a wedding guest book (not usually at thrift stores --lol!). I had seen several on Etsy that were gorgeous; but priced at 100-150 dollars -- I just could not justify spending that on such a small book! I am sure they are worth every penny for all the hard work the designer has put into them, but it's not something I put into our wedding budget. So -- you can imagine how my wheels started turning when I saw a new little wedding guest book for $1.00. YES -- that's right $1.00. However, it was
ugly not very attractive or stylish. So I snatched it up and brought it home with visions of hot glue, burlap, lace and pearls in my head. And here's what I ended up with -- along with a short tutorial on how I did it!
|I hope Hilary and John like it!|
|Here is what the poor little thing looked like to begin with.|
|First, I took the insides of the book away from the cover Pulling apart carefully where it was glued together.|
Thanks for visiting and come back soon!
