I just ran into a little bit of a dilemma...when I stacked up the paper and saw how thick it was!

This is going to be a wedding guestbook for a client, and the number of pages is pretty much set (one page for every guest at the wedding) The guests will be filling out a flat card at the event (a recipe for love fill in the blank card), and then the bride will insert the loose pages one per page afterwords. The recipe cards are 6" square, and theres not much room to change them.

I was hoping to make this just a simple hardcover, 7" square book. I have an image of the bookcloth I just ordered below. How should I approach this now, without making a stiff brick?? Should I reformat to a longer book, a 7" by 14" and cut the paper thickness in half, or is there a binding method anyone can wield this?  Huh

This might be a bit late, but I think I would use rings. You could construct a DIY binder (I can't see the bookcloth image, but I can imagine what you're using). I like the flexibility of rings because you can move the pages around too.
Hope this helps!
