Archiver's annual Scrapfest was held last weekend at the Mall of America and I want to share one of the Make & Take projects sponsored by Karen Foster Design. The fun thing about this layout is that you can fit up to ten 4x6 photos on one 12x12 page.
For the sake of creating a project that met the guidelines in terms of time to complete and budget, I kept the embellishments to a minimum. However, this would be really cute if you dressed up the photos in the flip book with additional tabs, stickers, and other do-dads.
Here is the secret weapon that allows you to place so many photos on the page.
It's a paper spine for a photo flip book and it has all the hallmarks of the type of project I like -- it's easy to make, inexpensive, and functional all at the same time.
If you are interested in making this layout, I have a treat for you... all the instructions and a supply list in pdf form: Download KFD_PhotoFlipHalloweenLayout_HR.
Once the paper for the spine is cut to size and folded, it helps to mark the sections that will not be glued together with an "x".
When the pieces that are unmarked are glued together, the back will look like this
The adhesive goes between each of the sections that stick up.
Here is what it looks like after it is adhered to the layout. The photos are attached to both sides of the spine.
As I mentioned, the embellishments were kept to a minimum... but a couple of strategically placed coil brads can have a big impact.
Here is the finished layout.
You can see all the photos and how the flip part works (I think once I get this back, I'll dress up the photos a bit more).
Thanks for stopping by today!
