Hello! The weathered wood look and colors of the Wedding Day Flipbook are perfect for our trip to Cape Cod. So this time I altered a Wedding Day Flipbook to hold our photos from a beach trip. Here are the details of the flipbook prep and the cover alter.
Wedding Day to Cape Cod Flipbook
Because the colors match my theme perfectly, this album didn’t require as much alteration as my Disney Flipbook.
I decided to feature the post binding in this project, but will link to the mini album binding in the supplies list. The only difference is the post binding requires a bit of prep, while the mini album binding does not. All of my alterations to the Flipbook are the same for both binding styles.
The Wedding Day Flipbook sold at Michael’s comes with 2 pages of stickers, which need to be removed from the binding.
Opening the Binding
Opening the binding is really easy. First open the flap covering the posts.
Then unscrew the screws from the posts using a small screwdriver.
Now remove the two sticker sheets. I’ll save these stickers for another project, because this Flipbook will have a beach theme.
You can now put the screws back or you can remove posts. I chose to remove the posts because that allows me to work on each page separately.
I reattached the screws to the posts, so I wouldn’t loose them. These posts will be replace with longer ones, because I am adding additional flaps to my flipbook.
I love the colors and worn wood look of this cover. And the colors remind me of Cape Cod, but the title “Sweet Love” doesn’t really fit.
I decided to alter the cover by adding an embellishment which covers the title.
I selected this chalk board sticker, because it is large enough to cover the Flipbook title and it fits my beach theme. Then I applied some white letters from my stash to create the title of my album. Easy peasy!
This blog post is the first in a series of posts showing how I customized the Wedding Day Flipbook into a mini album for a beach trip.
More examples of finished Flipbook mini albums are here.
I used the products listed below to create this Cape Cod mini album. To make them easy for you to find, I have linked each of the items. I used the post binding sold at Michael’s stores. The flipbook link below is to the mini album style binding, which can also be used. I personally selected each item used. All products, except the Paper House Productions products, were purchased by me. As always, I am not receiving a payment for doing this project or writing this blog post.
