Spring Flip book

Front cover of the flip book, it was thick so I wrapped bakers twine around for the closure. The base for my book is a card stock CD case. I added lots of die cuts, a wood photo frame, flowers, and gems and doilies.

I used the Welcome Spring paper collection from American Crafts.

Opening the top flap. I have a doily and then a wood arrow I colored with my Copic markers and then added flowers and bling to it. Three flags from the paper collection are affixed on the bottom flap with a few tiny flowers added on top.

Bottom and top flap opened to show the two small flaps that open to the sides. Each side id covered with a piece of patterned paper and then I added a vellum doily on top of that. Then I created two matching tags to layer on each side. The tags have twinewith  tied on top and are layered with flowers, small doilies and bling. The bottom flap has an envelope I made to put some goodies inside for the recipient and then taped closed with some washi tape.

The other bottom flap has a die cut swan on it and then the other flap has another cute envelope I made using the paper collection that houses more goodies. I have washi tape on all the seams even though this one was piece of paper to begin with so I didn’t need it to hold the flaps together, it was just for decoration.

The inside base has a paper piece from the collection that I added some embellishments to. The inside of each of the side flaps I covered with some patterned paper and scalloped the edges and then layered some ribbon and paper pieces from the collection and stapled on wiith my mini stapler from Tim Holtz. I finished them off with a wood piece.

The next top flap has a piece from the collection that I taped down on the sides and then cut a little piece down the middle and folded back so you can reach in and get the note out to read. I used turquoise mini glittered letters to spell the word note. The top of that page has a vellum envelope I created with my We R Memory Keepers envelope punch board. I added some embellishments inside and then put a small die cut bow for the closure. I adhered that with a paper clip banner that I made.

A fun project to make that you can customize for any occasion.
