I knew I wanted to do something with chipboard to make a sturdy book base, but I wasn't able to find anything that met my needs. So I wandered over to the wood section of A.C. Moore and found this really thin wood rectangle:
Step 1: I used a sanding block to make sure all the edges were smooth before painting one side in the bride's color, turquoise.
Step 2: once the paint was dry (I waited a few days to make sure it was really dry), I flipped the board over and applied Mod
Podge all over the board paying close attention to the edges. I then applied this gold paisley paper. I let the edges hang over and used a craft knife to trim away the excess once the Mod Podge was dry.
Step 3: I took a drill and carefully drilled two holes through one side of the boards. I inserted an eyelet into each hole, then used O-rings to secure the two boards together.
I still need to print the internal pages. Which will basically be white cardstock printed from my computer with lines for the guests to sign. I'll post some more pictures once I have the cover finished and the pages inserted.
