If you’ve ever seen a beautiful piece of baroque-style stamped velvet and thought, “I wonder how they make that?,” then you’re in luck, because today we’re teaching you the simplest way of how to do just that! Just with a stamp, iron, water, and the guest book of your choice, it’s so easy to make a darling DIY guest book that will surely wow your guests with every page turn!
- Sponge Brush
- Guest Book
- Velvet Fabric
- Spray Bottle Filled With Water
Cut a piece of velvet fabric large enough to wrap around both the front and back cover of your guest book.
Figure out where you want to emboss the velvet. It helps to mark that spot with tape!
Place your stamp on a surface with the image facing up, and then cover it with the velvet, textured side facing down.
Lightly mist fabric with water — be careful not to soak it!
Press with a hot iron for 10 to 20 seconds.
Center your embossing on your guest book.
Cut the excess fabric around the edges, leaving about 1 inch extra on each side for wrapping.
Apply a thin layer of glue on the guest book cover with a sponge brush.
Gently press the velvet fabric onto the glued surface.
Glue the fabric over the edges of the book. Tip: no need to be neat — the raw edges will be covered in the end!
Apply a thin layer of glue on the first page of your guest book.
Press the first page onto the inside of the cover for a clean look.
Repeat on the other cover.
