Mike and I were racking our brains trying to come up with party favors for our wedding guests. I didn’t want to waste money on a little tchotchke that everyone would throw out, but I also didn’t want to break the bank on a more significant gift. While I love the idea of making a donation to charity in honor of my guests, I also wanted to give my guests something sentimental that they can hold onto.
At four in the morning I woke up with this idea:
Name cards that were actually books which included lyrics from our first song, the recipes for the cookies we served, and pictures of us.
Mike said I was crazy and that it would take too much time. He was right, but it was totally worth it. I loved making this books, and I love seeing them in my friend’s bookcases when I visit their homes 🙂 Mission accomplished!
There were really simple to make but super tedious. I suggest enlisting a team of friends to help you. First I printed, cut and hole punched each of the booklets.
I used thicker mason board for the covers. You can get this at most craft or office supply store. I used block stamps to mark everyone’s name on each cover. I kind of liked all the little imperfections.
