Anyway, my other project included wedding cards! I had two boxes full of well-wishes from friends and family on our wedding day and at various bridal showers. I couldn't bear to part with them, and I enjoy reading through them when I have the time. When I found an online tutorial to making a wedding card book, I was pumped to try it out!
If I'd had some more crafting materials, I think the book would have turned out a little nicer, but the book serves its purpose!
Next, Blake and I punched holes in the top corner of each of the cards. My hands must be bruised from all the hole punching! I also managed to get my words mixed up and say "Pole Huncher" instead of "Hole Puncher" at least 20 times. Go ahead and let "pole huncher" roll around in your mouth for a few minutes... it's pretty rad!

My mom bought the two-inch rings for us at a Hobby Lobby in town, and it came in a two-pack. So I got creative and made a second book! Since we didn't have another two pieces of cardboard, or any more of the scrapbook paper that Blake and I picked out, I used two of our programs as the front and back for the second set of cards! These cards were a little smaller, so it ended up working out perfectly!
|Here's the front!|
|And here's the back! And all the cards are in the middle!|
I'm excited to have these around DC with us when we get back. It was so fun and encouraging to read all the notes people had left for us. Here's an example of what it looks like when you open up the book.
