How to make a Mini Flip Album

3/30/2018 | Lynn Lilly
This cute little flip album is one of the “make and take” projects taught
in the Deflecto Craft Solutions Booth at Creativation in January.
Mini Flip Album Supplies Used…           
  • Deflecto 4″ x 6″ Clear Craft Frame
  • Scrapbook Paper-Jen Hadfield Collection (Pebbles Inc.)
  • 4″ x 6″ Cardstock- Kraft, Black
  • 3 3/4″ x 5 3/4″ Corrugated Kraft Cardstock
  • 3/4″ Silver Book Rings
  • 15″ of 5/8″ Antique White Double Face Satin Craft Ribbon
  • Drill
  • 1/8 Inch Hole Punch
  • Tape Runner
How to make a Mini Flip Album:
  1. Make two marks on the top of the frame approximately 3/4″ in on each side.  The marks need to be approx. 1/2″ down from the top of the frame.  (If the holes go down too far the pages won’t flip correctly.)  Drill two holes in the top of the frame with a 3/16″ drill bit.
  2. For the mini album cover…Adhere a 3/4″ x 4 3/4″ scrapbook paper strip onto the top of the corrugated paper leaving a 1/8″ margin on the top.  Adhere the 3″ x 4″ journaling card (cut from the scrapbook paper) onto a 3 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ piece of blue scrapbook paper layer, add those layers onto the corrugated paper and then onto a 4″ x 6″ black cardstock layer.
  3. Using the drilled holes on the craft frame as a guide, mark the cover and the Kraft cardstock pages and punch two holes on the top.
  4. Mark and punch holes into a piece of 4″ x 6″ decorative scrapbook paper and insert into frame.
  5. Attach cover and pages to the craft frame with book rings.
  6. Tie ivory ribbon around cover.
