Flip Album Tutorial

Flip Album Instructions

Supplies Needed
(1) 6 x 12 Piece of Cardstock (For Bottom Layer Outside Binding/Cover)
(3) 5 3/4 x 12 Pieces of Cardstock (For Insides)
(4) 5 ½ x 5 ½ Pieces of Cardstock (For Top Layer of Covers)
Adhesives, Patterned paper and any other embellishments

Score your 6x12 piece of paper at 2.75" and 3" length wise.

Turn your paper and score again at 2.75" and 3"
 Fold on both score lines. See above photo.

Cut one piece of paper into 4 equal 5.5" x 5.5" pieces
See photo below.

Next build front and back covers by "sandwiching" the base in the first step between two pieces of the four 5.5" x 5.5" pieces you just cut. Do this for both the front and back covers. Lining them up with each other. There is only a .25" left at the top and bottom of the base.
See both photos below

Next take your 3 pieces of 5.75" x 12" paper and score at 3" and 9". Fold each on their score lines.
See photo below.

After folding them, glue them together end to end. See photo below.

Now take this piece and adhere it to the middle of the "cover/base" you created and set aside. Only adhere the center piece of the base with the center back of this piece. Once you have attached this piece to the base, you have effectively created your album.
Sorry, no specific photo of this. But hopefully you get the idea.


 Now it's just up to you to embellish it the way you want.
