A wed­ding seems like such a short hol­i­day, but you want to enjoy every moment, remem­ber every moment of the cel­e­bra­tion and hear every warm word. It’s good that you can do this a lit­tle lat­er by look­ing through pho­tos and leaf­ing through a hand­made wed­ding wish book. Do not believe that you can make such a book on your own, for which you will not be ashamed in front of the guests? Per­haps you will change your mind when you con­sid­er the Wish Book mas­ter class.

For work you will need:

  • paper — 2 sheets of thick card­board (24cm x 21cm), crin­kled paper, a sheet of design­er card­board (22cm x 19cm), 12 sheets of thin white card­board (23cm x 20cm), print­ed inscrip­tion “Wish Book”;
  • dec­o­ra­tive ele­ments — lace, braid, buck­le, beads, flow­ers, fas­ten­ing rings;
  • tools — a hole punch, a fig­ured hole punch, scis­sors, hot glue, dou­ble-sided tape.
  • handmade wish book
  1. The DIY wish book starts with a cov­er, it is advis­able to use col­ors that match the col­or scheme of the wed­ding. We take thick card­board mea­sur­ing 24cm x 21cm and crin­kled paper mea­sur­ing 25cm x 28cm.

  3. We wrap the card­board in crum­pled paper, bend­ing it even­ly on all sides, wrap the cor­ners inward and glue it with hot glue.

  5. We also wrap the sec­ond sheet of card­board — they will become the cov­er. Retreat­ing 6 cm from the inner edge with a hole punch, we make holes for the fas­ten­ing rings.

  7. After cre­at­ing the basis, the ques­tion aris­es of how to make an orig­i­nal wish book. To do this, we will begin to “con­jure” over the front side of the cov­er. Attach to it with dou­ble-sided tape in the cen­ter a sheet of design paper approx­i­mate­ly 22cm x 19cm.

  9. Under the lev­el of the low­er hole for the ring, we wrap the page with lace, fix the ends on the reverse side with glue.

  15. We cut out the inscrip­tion “Book of wish­es” print­ed in advance to make a frag­ment of about 10cm x 15cm. Dec­o­rate the edges with a fig­ured hole punch. We hide the work­piece at one cor­ner under the lace and glue it.

  17. Usu­al­ly hand­made (in the mod­ern world this is called scrap­book­ing) wish books are com­ple­ment­ed by vol­u­met­ric ele­ments. Take white arti­fi­cial flow­ers and place them on the cov­er.

  23. The design of the pages of the wish book can be dec­o­rat­ing with pat­terns, cre­at­ing carved cor­ners, fill­ing in inter­est­ing ques­tions for guests and facts about the bride and groom. What­ev­er you come up with — a hand-made wish book will be exclu­sive and unique!
