Guestbook Tree Tags

My friend Stephanie is getting married on Saturday, and as a bridesmaid she asked me to take care of some things for the ceremony and reception. One thing she asked from me was to create her guestbook.

It's not going to be just any ol' guestbook. She asked me to make her a tree. So I'm designing a tree that will hold tags on which each guest will write well-wishes and sign, then hang on the tree. After the wedding, Stephanie will have the guestbook tree to decorate her first home that she and her husband move into. Such a fun idea!

I used ivory paper with and stamped starfish all over it using an ink color named Dune.

The tags are 2" x 4" with a starfish punch out at the top.

I stamped one of the two wedding colors on the other side, either magenta seashells or "surf" colored waves.

I tied raffia loops at the top and found coordinating colored pens for the guests to sign with.

But how am I supposed to get anything done when I have this adorable baby babbling and cooing next to me the whole time?

It's a wonder I actually finished making all of the tags and found a container to keep them in.

Here's the final outcome. I'm excited to see the tree filled with these cute tags.

Watch for more posts about this wedding. It's bound to be beautiful and fun!
