photo for each page of the book
scanner & printer
scissor and a ruler or a paper cutter
metal binding bracket
Start by scanning in all of the pictures. Fix any flaws
or crop them as you desire. I used childhood pictures but
you could use any type you want from strictly baby pictures
to the history of you as a couple to family photos if you
2. I made my pages 5" by 7" to print this size
just set your margins as needed. Before you pint out the
pictures on to the card stock play around with where on
the page you want the image to go, you can add a caption
under it or a frame around it if you want. Also now is the
time to decide if you want a lined or unlined guest book.
Leaving the pages blank is easier but if you want lines
don't forget to add them now.
3. Print out you pages and trim them to the correct size.
A paper cutter is easier but a steady hand a ruler work
just fine too.
4. Next print off a front cover. I used a fancy font and
a thistle symbol with our names and wedding date but you
can put what ever you want in what ever style on your cover
page. Print it off and trim it as well.
Now pick the order you want the photo pages to go in and
stack them in that order with the cover on top. Punch 2
holes at the side of each page and bind using the metal
binding bracket. These can be found at office supply store,
they come as single hole binders or double hole binders.
I used the double size simply because that's what I had
After assembling take your ribbon and glue it over the edge
where the holes are to hide them, and you are done your
very personal photo guest book!
