The Wedding Keepsake Book

It only took me two years to finish up this book! Created for my lovely Niece Kristen.

This is the front cover. A little pocket holds a tiny sachet of Lavender buds.
 Sachet....

 There are at least three different Wedding Dress laces on the cover...
 Back view of book...

 Almost every page has a pocket...perfect for Wedding Keepsakes...



 This page was created using an antique Irish Lace collar.

 Note the tiny petit pearl buttons!

 There are about five layers of laces to make up this pocket....



 Pockets and 'belly bands' to slide in keepsake momentos.

 Making coordinating little envelopes...the bouquet is her actual bouquet.





 The pocket on the right is Irish Lace from my Auntie Mae's turn of the century (1900) lace stash. Found in a paper bag tucked way back in her bottom dresser drawer!

  1. What a lovely keepsake Chris - so much better than a boring photo album! You've outdone yourself with this one I think.
