Flip Album


I finally got around to finishing this...I think I went to this class before Christmas...yikes! The papers are Bo Bunny and Bazzill. The basic album really doesn't take much time, it's all the panels that take up the time. You need three different solid cardstock colors for the base of the album. Then you need another solid color, white, and two double-sided pattern papers.


I have learned that if you embellish at all, you need to account for some extra room in the album. I would have gone an extra quarter inch because of the brads and thickness of the cardstock panels. I guess it wouldn't have been so bad if the patterned paper were regular thickness. Also, the instructor had us use embroidery thread for the catch of the album...it is fine, but you have to be careful not to leave too much give or too little. I would have used elastic string. Oh well, you live and learn, and I know better for my next one.
If you are interested in the directions, email me. Thanks for looking! April
