1: paper

I recently celebrated one year of being married. This is the paper anniversary and I wanted to make my husband something that reminded us of our wedding day, that we could put in our home and not hide away on a shelf, that celebrated a very special gift he gave to me on our wedding day – a song sung by our friends.

This paper book is based on the folding instructions for a fabric book at Belle and Burger but of course, mine needed to be paper and that was somewhat easier to write the song lyrics on.  I machine stitched the lace, photos, fabric and hearts onto the book pages.

The song lyrics are from ‘Good Man’ by Josh Ritter, the paper hearts, book title and date are cut out of a special book that we have 2 copies of  (one was sacrificed for our wedding invitations!) and the photos are printed on leftover invitation paper.
