Wanda Merritt- Flip Book

My entry is a book using pictures taken at CHA Spring 2009. Pictures are of Lytle Scrapper & The Scrapbook Garden Sales Team and Designers I have come to know.

Choose an appropriate design for your Flip Book. I chose a flower album with 5 chipboard cards for a total of 10 pages. Title page – Cover with provided paper and chalk edges to distress. Use the provided letters to spell out your title “CHA FUN.” Punch flowers from patterned paper and attach flowers and bling provided.

Picture pages – Cover each side of chipboard with paper provided working to prevent the same paper design facing itself. You may use your favorite adhesive. I found that a permanent glue stick worked best with this type of chipboard. Once complete, I sanded and chalked the edges to distress.

Before beginning to place pictures I reviewed the embellishments provided and determined that I would need more to complete the 9 pages of this flip book. I used a punch to create flowers using only the paper provided. I also used an edge punch to create edges that I could use as a frame around pictures. I cut photo mats from the paper provided to add interest and depth. I stacked flowers using glue dots and added either one of the small flowers provided. Then I added a button or bling in the center of the flowers for more interest. Because the one large flower was too large for a page, I folded it in half and finished with button provided. I also used some of the adhesive stickers to add to the fun.

Two pieces of patterned paper were used to make this page. Adhere the Stripe pattern to the top ½ of the page. Next adhere the Rings pattern from the bottom of the page up ¾ of the way and secure only the edges with glue stick so as to provide a pocket for a Journaling Tag. (not included on sample) It is important to have your pictures fit comfortably on the page. I chose to use 2X3 and 2½ X 3½ pictures. Each picture is placed so it can easily be seen with room for embellishments.

To complete the assembly I added ribbon on the ring which holds the pages in place.

    Definitely the cleanest and most professional looking of the bunch! The lines are clean and straight, the curves add playful fun as well as difficulty to your project! BRAVO!
