Flap Page Decorating

Disney Flipbook Pages 14 & 15

Hello!  Pages 14 & 15 have the perfect layout for my photos, so all I had to do was decorate them.  I just added some pattern paper and embellishments, because the flap page interaction is part of the Flipbook.  So these two pages were complete in no time!

Flipbook Pages

Pages 14 and 15 in the With This Ring Flipbook are neutral pages perfect for any wedding photo, however they doesn’t match the rest of my Disney themed mini album.

Flipbook page 14 is an under cut page, which is perfect for a landscape photo or two 3×4 portrait photos.

Flipbook page 15 is an interactive page consisting of two flaps.  The flap page can hold five 4×6 photos or lots of smaller ones.

Disney Transformation

What a difference some pattern paper makes!  These pages now look totally Disney!

These pages were complete in less than an hour, because I just added pattern paper, photos and a couple embellishments.

Add Mats to Page 14

All I did on page 14 was mat the entire page with Say Cheese pattern paper, add a photo, then embellished the page with layered scraps of paper.  It doesn’t get easier than that!

Decorate the Flap Page

Because the interaction is part of the Flipbook, I just added pattern paper and photos to the flap page.  I decided to make the landscape flap the top flap, but you can place either flap on top.

In addition to matting the flaps with pattern paper I added magnets to the flap page.  This is optional, however I like the way magnets keep the flaps closed until I open them.

Here’s the flap page with all the flaps open.  Layers of scrap paper make wonderful embellishments.  Not only do they look great, they are also free embellishments, because if not used as embellishments, these tiny scraps would have been in the trash.

Before and After

Here’s a look at the Flipbook pages before and after I altered them.

Photo Count

Remember out of the box a Flipbook holds 36 4×6 photos.  My mini album holds more photos, because I added flaps and inserts.  For example, pages 8 and 9 display 21 photos instead of 5 photos.

No alterations were made to pages 14 & 15, so they hold six 4×6 photos.  That brings the photo count in my Disney Flipbook to 97 (57 4×6 photos, 37 3×4 photos, and 3 1 3/4×2 3/4 photos, plus 4 journal spots)

This blog post is part of a series of posts showing how I customized the With This Ring Flipbook into a Disney mini album.  You can find all the posts in the series here.
