Creative DIY Instax Guestbook Idea

written by Thalia Basulto August 21, 2018

We recently had another great opportunity to partner with Wedding Chicks to create this super cute and unique Instax guestbook display idea! A photo guestbook is a creative way to remember your friends and family who were part of your special day and Wedding Chicks provided easy to follow directions on how to create your own. See for yourself!

What they used: Monochromatic Pink Matsumoto (5 bunches), Peachy Watermelon Ranunculus (100 stems), Bubble Gum Pink Billy Balls (25 stems), Parvafolia Fresh Eucalyptus Greenery (5 bunches), Queen Anne’s Lace Filler Flower (5 bunches and 12 FLORACAGE® Holder. They also used Curly Willow Branches (10 bunches), Flame Peony (20 stems), Spring Berry Tulips (50 stems) and the Festival Fresh Flower Mix Combo Pack.

Check out the results below, and scroll on Wedding Chick’s step-by-step instructions!

Supplies Needed:

  • Curly Willow Branches from Wholesale Flowers by FiftyFlowers.com
  • Frame for directions (we bought ours at TJ Maxx)
  • Sharpee Pens
  • Instax Camera
  • Scissors
  • Instax Film (purchase enough packs for each guest to take one photo)
  • String
  • Mini Clothespins
  • Vase (select a sturdy one with a wide mouth)

How-to Steps:

Step 1: You’ll want a table that can handle the flower arrangement and all your supplies. We used a desk from Ikea and a white tablecloth to keep costs down. Looks good… right?

Secondly, we created the floral arrangement. All the flowers were from FiftyFlowers.com. Take note that the amount of flowers that will arrive will be enough for several arrangements, not just one. You can use the flowers in your centerpieces, bouquets, floral crowns, basically anything you need for your wedding.

When creating your arrangement, you can use any flowers, but the one thing you cannot skip is the Curly Willow Branches. Those are key to your unique wedding guest book.

We used the Festival Fresh Flower Mix Combo and added  Flame Peonies to create our wedding centerpiece.

Step 2: Set up all your supplies. Including your framed directions, so guests know what to do once they come to the table. Here is the free printable we spoke about before. You can click here and download this 11 X 8.5 here and put it in a frame. We bought our gold frame at TJ Maxx.

Step 3: This is the most time-consuming part of the project. We’d suggest doing it the day before.

1. Cut the string
2.  Make a slip knot through the mini clothespin
3. Make a slip knot around the willow branches

Guests can take their photos, sign their names and clip them to the tree, creating an interactive statement piece at the wedding.

After the big day, you can un-clip all the photos and put together an Instax photo album like this one.
