Mini Flipbook Flaps

Hi All!  This time I’m adding mini Flipbook flaps designed to hold 3×4 photos, but you can size them to hold a variety of smaller photos.  By using smaller photos, I’m able to stuff even more pictures into my Flipbook.

Disney Flipbook Pages 4 & 5

Pages 4 and 5 are about our day at Hollywood Studios, where we did all the Star Wars stuff.  In addition to fitting the theme, the print paper complements the photos.

Here is what pages 4 and 5 look like in the With This Ring Flipbook.  They are just perfect for a wedding album, but not for my Disney themed mini.

Flipbook page 5 is a pocket flap page.  Here’s what the page looks like with the pocket flap open.

Both pages have a wedding feel, but a bit of pattern paper will total transform them.

Disney Transformation

Presto chango this page is now totally Disney!

Disney Flipbook Page 4 & 5

Let’s look at the additions I made to both pages.

Added Flap to Page 4

Disney Flipbook Page 4 & 5

Opening the flap on page 4 reveals 2 more 4×6 photos.  By adding a flap this 7×7 page now holds 3 full size 4×6 photos.  It was so easy to do.  I cut piece of Say Cheese cardstock to size, then scored it in half and folded it on the score line.  After matting the base page, I adhered the flap.  It’s just that simple!

Love the pocket!  They are a great place to store memorabilia or additional photos.

Mini Flipbook Flaps

I added fun mini Flipbook flaps to the pocket which hold a bunch of 3×4 photos.  It’s like having a mini flipbook on the pocket.  Here’s how they work.

Disney Flipbook Page 4 & 5

First you open the portrait flap to the right which reveals another portrait photo and a landscape one.

Next you open the landscape flap to the left to see 2 more landscape photos.

Finally, close those 2 flaps, and open the entire unit to the left where there is yet another landscape photo plus a portrait one on the pocket itself.  Yup, seven 3×4 photos in these mini Flipbook flaps – 4 landscape and 3 portrait.

The mini Flipbook flaps stay in place, because the flaps are secured with magnets.  The details of how I made the mini Flipbook flaps is beyond the scope of this album share, but I hope you are inspired to make flaps like these.

Pocket Insert

I lined the pocket with pattern paper, then made an insert with a large journal spot and room for more photos.

The pocket is very roomy, so no problem inserting this bulky insert.

When the insert is open it holds two 4×6 photos and two 3×4 photos.

Pocket insert.

When you flip it over there are two more 4×6 photos and a large journal spot.

First, I made the tri-fold from black cardstock, then I adhered the photos to the black cardstock.  I created the journal spot by adhering one of the cut aparts to the black cardstock.  Really easy and totally effective!

Pocket Flap Open

The pocket is actually a flap that opens reveling an under cut page.

I decided to cover both of these areas with pattern paper to give them more of that Disney vibe.

What a transformation a bit of pattern paper makes!

Back of Pocket Flap

The back of the pocket flap (far right) is pretty simple; a matted photo embellished with a sticker and heart from the Say Cheese bits and pieces plus a rhinestone Mickey from my stash.

Under Cut Page

The under cut page is designed to hold one landscape 4×6 photo, however I expanded it to hold additional pictures.

Disney Flipbook Page 4 & 5

By adding a tri-fold the under cut page how holds five 4×6 photos.  Here’s the page with the top part of the tri-fold open.

And here is the page with the bottom part of the tri-fold open.  I made room for this bulky addition by scoring the under cut page 1/4″ to the left of the fold where the pocket flap closes.  Having those two fold lines only 1/4″ apart make a gusset, so the pocket flap closes easily.  This reduced the width of the under cut page, but there is still plenty of room for my landscape 4×6 photos.

Before and After

Here’s a couple before and after photos.

Photo Count

Page 4 and 5 bring the photo count in my Disney mini album to 27 4×6 photos, 10 3×4 photo and 3 journal spots.  That’s a total of 37 photos and we’re only up to page 5.  It’s so easy to alter Flipbook to fit your needs.
