Wedding Guest Book Flip Album

Today I had the special privilege of custom designing a guest book for the son of our previous pastor.
Their colors are yellow and green.  Making this guest book was a beautiful challenge for me as is any custom ordered guest book I put together.

This unique flip album guestbook will hold cherished memories for generations to come.

I started out searching my local fabric and paper suppliers for just the right materials to match the bride's color theme.  I couldn't resist this floral yellow fabric.  I used a chocolate shimmer fabric for the binding and stitched it together with yellow ribbon using a tortoise shell pattern.

For the end I used a two toned yellow half inch ribbon.

What's really unique about my guest books are they work two ways.  This guest book flip album opens as a autograph book on one side allowing your guest to write short little notes of memories past or marriage advice to the couple.  Then half way through this guest book the paper changes to card stock and is designed so the couple can place photos and use the second half as a photo album.

Since this guest book is made in the traditional Japanese stab stitch technique this book can be flipped one way for a guest book and flipped over with the binding on the right side ( as in the Japanese style) and used as a photo album.

Now this couple open this guest book on anniversaries or lay out on a coffee table to share with guests into their home!  All pages inside this book are acid-free so they're memories will last a life time!
