Need DIY Help with Welcome Book Cover

Recommended Posts

So I bought these album front and back off of Etsy.com. They are so cute. I figured I would make my welcome books with them. Now, I am stuck on how to decorate the front, or what to even put on there... The covers are like partical board, but not as hard, but not as soft as card board. Really weird to explain. I can glue embellishments on, but my problem is writing "Welcome" or "Tiffany and Kyle - October 20, 2011". I have thought about using sticker letters, scrapbooking materials, or something like that, but it would get quite expensive being that I need to make 15 booklets. I also thought about stamps, but the booklets are kinda big (10x5), I feel like if it were too small it would look silly... Any ideas?

I can't find the picture of the one that I actually bought, but this is very similar. The edges are cut differently. Anyhow, this gives you a good idea of what it looks like. I only have two holes, and I am going to use a nice ribbon to tie it (unless I can find something better). I bought starfish charms that I am going to attach to the bow of the ribbon....

 

Now what to put on the front.... I just don't want it to look cheesy or silly. The pages are printed in color on heavy paper, and custom cut to size. The covers are nice and heavy. So I would hate to mess up the look of the whole book with the front. I am so lost on where to start...
