Modified Flip Book Photo Album

My eight-year-old granddaughter has been asking for a photo album. I made this little one for her birthday this week. The covers are 6" x 6" and are covered with one of the designer papers from the Sunshine Garden Simply Scrappin' kit from Stampin' Up! To make the pages, I cut 8 pieces of Certainly Celery cardstock to measure 11 1/2" x 5 3/4". I scored each piece 5 7/8" from one end and folded it along the score. This gives one side that is 5 7/8" x 5 3/4" and one side that is slightly smaller. I used sticky tape to tape the bigger sides of two of the pages so that a folded edge and a single edge were matched up. I repeated this with the other pages to end up with a total of 4 pages. I punched the bound edges with my Bind-it-All. Then I used the new Eyelet Border punch from Stampin' Up! to scallop the edge of the free ends. Finally I bound the book with the Bind-it-All. I decorated the front of the album with some of the self-adhesive die-cuts from the kit and added the remaining die-cuts to various pages. I am tickled with how it turned out and didn't take me more than a couple of hours to make it.Chloe's Photo Album top view Inside page of Chloe's Photo Album copy Front Cover of Chloe's Photo Album copy

    This is super cool, I’m sure she will love her present. It will giver her something fun to do also, picking out pictures to fill it with. I appreciated your sharing on SUfriends yahoogroup about spring. How interesting In my home in NE-middle America we mark spring with new baby calves coming. We have dad 27 and have18 to go.
