Wedding Guest Book by Quotes & Notes

"He asked, she said yes!" A sweet 9" x 6" wooden guest book / album with custom names and date. This book has 40 blank white leaves and is held together by two 1" binder rings with a twill ribbon tied around them. The covers are made out of basswood. All text is heat transferred onto the wood by hand. The imperfect nature of the heat transferring technique brings about a slightly distressed appearance which looks wonderful on wood! Beautiful!
