Heart Shaped Wedding Guest Book

3 Reviews


This design is a beautiful and modern way to have guests at a wedding or other event let you know they were there and it gives the hosts a wonderful keepsake afterward!

The way it works is that guests write their names on small wooden hearts and drop them in one of the two slots at the top of the large, layered heart. The clear acrylic layer allows the hearts to be seen as they stack up inside.

Project Details

There are many different ways to customize this design including:

  • using different naturally colored woods
  • painting the different layers
  • engraving on the clear acrylic (I recommend engraving backwards on the back side so the front remains smooth)
  • using the two side hearts for dates, years, or even photos
  • adding layered text using the couple's names

desifn hold approximately 60 hearts


  • Be SURE the middle "spacer" layer is thicker than the material you use for the hearts so they will easily drop down through the slots
  • Remember to use a wood for the hearts that you can easily write on.


• 10.6"x15"
