    After seeing a load of these pages priced at £7 (for just a pdf download) on Etsy I decided to try my hand at them. I'm absolutely thrilled with how they turned out and thought they might be of use to other brides out there!


    Here's the first of two pages:










    Also, for any UK brides, I then ordered them from http://www.fileprint.org for only £11 (inc. p&p) for 25 sets [50 total]. They haven't arrived yet (due later today) but I'll post photos and an update about the quality later, if anyone's interested.

      Well they arrived within two days and are on really good quality paper: they look great! Just be sure to "embed the font", as this caused a bit of a problem, which is having to be fixed now. Great value for money though!

            Thanks! Yeah, it was actually surprisingly easy. I just copied across a couple of images from google and our pseudo-monogram (the turtle :)) and created text boxes surrounded by shapes in publisher. I actually really enjoyed it, I love making DIY stuff!

                  Sorry, it does require publisher to play around with it. I'd upload it as a pdf but you wouldn't be able to edit names etc. then...

                  I'm really pleased with how they turned out, and they were really easy to do. Definitely my fave DIY so far. Gonna have this as the sentimental, traditional guestbook, then I'm having the whiteboard/dress-up photo booth for when people have had a few more drinks ;)
