Here is a pic of the guestbook my girls made for me for my shower. They had set up a backdrop and all my guests took pics with the instamax polaroid and each made a page in my book. I love it! There are some empty pages so I'm going to print some pics from the shower and put them in the album.
We've been going back and forth on ideas for our favours. We're doing welcome bags but wanted to do something small for the reception that kept with our love story theme. I really wanted to do book page bookmarks but found the only way to make them durable is to laminate them and I always finds it makes it look a bit too shiny and a little cheap looking. So we mulled over a couple ideas when I found these really cute dictionary magnets and both Sean and I loved them! They are super easy to make. All you need is a dictionary some glass beads (I went for the larger ones in the mosaic aisle in Michaels), decoupage glue and some magnets!
I really love the way they turned out. I originally bought strip magnet because it was cheaper and hoped it would be strong enough....not so much. I'm going to have to go back to Michaels and get the stronger circular magnets.
I've done about 2/3 of the magnets I need. Here is the first batch:
