Frame Flip Album

-Another Stay-At-Home Retreat class for April

It's time for another mini-album. Well, not too mini as it measures 10"w x 7 1/2"H, but it's a fun and easy one to make. What I love about this one is that it stands on its own and with a flip of a tab stand you can display it closed or open ready to flip through. Plus, at any time you can add additional pages!

So above is what the end result is, and this is what we start with.

This was part of Kaisercraft's Beyond the Page collection, but is no longer available. I turned it horizontally to prop it up, took out the large panel in the center of the cover, and covered most of the slit in the back cover leaving about 1 1/8" in the center.

 Lets have a look at a couple more photos.

In this next view, if you look closely you can see that there are some pages between the MDF front and back covers.

Maybe in this section of the photo you can see it better.

The flowers are punched from the small and medium Retro Flower punch from EK Success with the tiny butterflies punched from a tiny punch from the same company, and the larger ones with Martha Stewart's Butterfly punch. The leafy branches are punched using Martha Stewart's Branch 2 punch. And Avocado Liquid Pearls used in the flower centers.

I have made a very quick video for you see the details of the framed flip album. You'll have to excuse a few verbal mistakes. There was no time to remake the video so I had to leave it as it is.

This is going to be a fun class, and I look forward to it. Thank you for checking in today, and please feel free to ask any questions in your comment.

Happy crafting everyone!
