Engagement parties are so fun. Celebrating the possibilities for a young couple while meeting many of their friends and family. Sometimes, though, it can be a challenge coming up with a special gift. Sure, it’s always appropriate and much appreciated to buy off the registry but I usually save that for the wedding. I like to create a personalized gift for engagements.
This time, I created a guest book for the young couple to have in their home to record events and friends who visit over the coming years.
It features their initials in the two hearts below.
I created this size (8¾x4″) so I could cut 3 inside pages from an 8½x11″ sheet (3-5/8 plus a hair more x8½”). Economy, you know. I printed lines on both sides of the green pages and then cut them. I made 2 columns for plenty of guest signatures. If you want to make your own, you can download the page lines in a word document [ guest book horizontal lines 3.]
