Well, here we go again…my post disappeared! So here is a shortened version of what I wrote before….
I wanted to try the photo wallet again with more pages and thought the Bind It All would be perfect for that. This is great for those who have lots of photos to show off. I added five pages for photos, with three open spots for journaling. I bought the velcro circles at Wally World in the sewing department and cut them in half. The coil is 5/8″ which will still open/close easily once the photos are added. Thanks for looking!
I really wanted to try another flip book only larger this time. I took two coasters and trimmed an inch off of both of them. I then placed the coasters together and lined up the cut edges. Then I glued two pieces (one for each side) of heavy card stock over the “seams” to bind them together, almost like taping them together, only I glued them. I was concerned about how well the coasters would hold, but they seemed pretty sturdy. Once some heavy decorative/designer paper was added you couldn’t tell that it wasn’t just one piece.
I added some pockets on the inside of the front and back cover. I thought it’d be cute to add a few notes, tags, photos and what-not to them. The paper is a stack from K&Company, it came with 36 double-sided papers. I picked it up at Joann’s last night. It is really pretty and I can see myself using it for many projects. It has so many of the SU colors in it, Old Olive, Always Artichoke, Purely Pomegranate, River Rock, Creamy Caramel, Close to Cocoa…and the list goes on!
Once again, here is the tutorial from Lisa at Splendiferous Creations. She makes it so easy to create something so cool!
These little things are so fast to make that I had to put another one together this morning before we leave. This time I used Blue Bayou, Soft Sky and Blush Blossom for the card stock and the the patterned paper is DCWV The Far East Stack. They match perfectly! I love these little books!
I absolutely love these little flip books and finally had a chance to sit down and try one. Wow, talk about fast and easy (my kind of project)…and fun to make. I think I will be making a few more for gifts and doorprizes. I followed the tutorial from Lisa at Splendiferous Creations and in no time had this cute little book. Thanks, Lisa! Awesome tutorial!!! Basic Grey DP was used along with DCWV The Far East Stack.
