Colorful Cards Guest Book

Martha Stewart Weddings, Volume 10 1999

A guest book doesn't have to be in the form of a book. The bright hues of these small gift cards can't help but beguile the eyes of wedding guests; their small size gives well-wishers just enough space to write a sweet thought, quip, or hope; and the envelopes, allowing for privacy, encourage them to get a little sentimental. Use a clear vase or bowl to hold the sealed envelopes; after the wedding, the opened envelopes can be glued facedown into an album so that the cards can be easily removed and reread.

    Pampered Chef sells a trifle bowl that would work for the container
    Try an art supply store for the cards and envelopes

    Where can you find envelopes that are so small!? I've only seen much larger ones online

    I have a few vendors on line where you can order buk colored cards and envelopes, by their colors are limited (her colors are ivory and shades of pink). Unless I can order from a local invitation maker, we will be using cardstock (cropped) and colored envelopes.
