Mini album within a Mini Album!

As promised, here is how I put together the mini Flip Flap album in the "My Girl" mini album:

I used the 2"x2" Flip Flap protectors from Close To My Heart's Small Assortment (Z1747), which contains 4 each of 2"x2", 3"x3", 3"x4", and 4"x4".  So I began with a 2.25"x2.25" piece of cardstock to act as my base for the mini flip flap album (it's pictured a little larger here before I figured out to cut it down!).  Then I just started by sticking down one of the flip flaps, flush to the edges;  overlapped with the next flip flap, again staying flush to the edges, and so on till all four are stuck down.


Like so:

Then I cut five 2"x2" squares of cardstock, inked the edges, and inserted them into the flip flaps, and glueing down the fifth one to the center.



Before securing to the chipboard mini album, I anchored a piece of bakers twine behind the mini flip flap album:


So that it could be folded in one flap at a time and then tied shut like so!


As my kids would say - "Easy, peasy, lemon squeezy!"

The Memory Protector Flip Flaps are one of my all time favourite products by Close To My Heart, as they allow me to so simply add more photos to my layouts without cluttering them up!!  To buy yours today just go to www.andreagreen.ctmh.com and shop online 24/7 with delivery right to your door!
