Flip album

Hello!! Everyone!
Today on the Blog, I am showing you my new project.... A Flipbook!!

This is the first time I am making one, so there are going to be some mistakes along. Please feel free to point out anything I have done wrong or can do better so that I can implement it in my further projects. 

Here we go....

This flip book measures around 4" x 6".

  • Took a 12" x 12" black cardstock and cut it into 2 halves. Each part I scored at 4" intervals. I had 2 parts with 3 panels each.
  • I took a strip of black paper measuring 1"x6". Folded it into half and used it to glue the two parts together. The inside of the album is ready now.
  • I then took 2 pieces of cardstock, this time a little taller than 6" but 4" wide.Covered this piece with patterned paper and stuck it on the first and the last panel of the album. (Sandwich a piece of satin while doing this on either side)
  • I then cut n stuck the patterned papers on all the inner panels (Size little less than 4x6 so that a black border can be seen all around.)
  • Made a pocket on one of the panel to insert tags.
  • Then came the embellishments, stickers, laces, sentiments, flowers etc.
  • On the cover page of the flipbook, I made a small photo frame, embellished it with a stamped message.
  • A bird on a tree chipboard adorned the cover page.  
TADAA... My flipbook is ready!!!

Here are some inside pics...

I am really happy with the outcome. Friends, please do leave me your feedback or any suggestions on the same.
