By now, I am sure you are realizing how difficult it can be to compile all the addresses you need for your wedding invitations. Well, this ‘guest book’ is the perfect way to start your new home off right! While all your favorite people are in one place, this guest book makes them all write down their address, email, birthday, etc. so that you have all their up to date information. If you already have your wedding guest book, you can also do this for your engagement party and/or your bridal shower. You will find this extremely helpful when you are writing out your wedding thank you cards…

Next, we are going to remove the cards that come with the Rolodex – they aren’t cute! That’s why you need the blank cards; so that your guests can be creative with the blank space. Put the blank cards in the Rolodex tray.

Now we are going to make our own alphabet divider cards – the Rolodex ones just aren’t cute! Start by tracing the cards onto your cardstock. You will need 12 dividers total.

Then cut them out. To do the little area on the bottom of the card that lays on the Rolodex track, cut and then use your favorite hole punch to easily knock out space instead of trying to cut that little square out.

Don’t forget to go over your divider cards with an eraser to get rid of any tracing lines.

Now the fun part! Looking at how Rolodex divides the alphabet, place your stickers on the top of each appropriate divider card.
