Memorabilia Pocket

Hi There! Back again with a couple more ways to add additional photos to a Flipbook.  This time I added a landscape flap to page 10 of my Disney Flipbook.  Then on page 11 I altered the flap of the memorabilia pocket into a place to display photos.

Disney Flipbook Pages 10 & 11

The memorabilia pocket on page 11 is a huge 7×7 pocket with a magnet closure, so it’s perfect for storing additional photos, brochures, tickets and other memorabilia from a trip.

In my case, I have so many photos that I decided to extend the memorabilia pocket flap, so I could add photos to it.

Flipbook Pages Unaltered

Pages 10 and 11 are perfect for wedding photos, but they aren’t ideal for my Disney mini album.  So, I will be transforming them with pattern paper.

On the right you can see the memorabilia pocket.  There is enough room to place a portrait photo next to the memorabilia pocket flap, however I would like to put more than one photo on this page.  So, I need to alter it.

Disney Transformation

It’s amazing how a bit of pattern paper is changing the whole feel of this album!

Flipbook Page 10 – Side Flap

I added a side opening flap to page 10, which allows me to display three 4×6 photos rather than just one.

Making the Side Opening Flap

This was super simple to do.  First I cut a mat for the base page – the multi color star piece.  Then I cut a piece of black cardstock and scored it with a scoreboard and stylus forming the flap.  I attached the flap to the base page mat, then adhered the mat section to page 10.  Finally, I added mats to the flap and photos to complete the look.

I kept the decoration on this page simple, by just adding a few paper layers to the base page and a sticker from the sticker sheet.

I extended the memorabilia pocket flap, so it could display photos.

Extending the Memorabilia Pocket Flap

I cut a piece of black cardstock and adhered it to the flap, then covered both sides with pattern paper mats.  On the inside I decorated it with some layered pieces of paper and a star from the sticker sheet.

I decorated the outside with a brad, a couple die cuts and some stickers.

Base Page

The decoration of the base page looks complex, but it’s very simple.

I decorated page 11 with this great piece of pattern paper, plus a brad at the top left, and the photo of course.  Additionally, I added a piece of red cardstock to the right for some added interest.  Doesn’t it look great!

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.  The alterations on pages 10 & 11 brings the photo count in my Disney Flipbook to 76 (41 4×6 photos, 32 3×4 photos, and 3 1 3/4×2 3/4 photos, plus 3 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.
