Side Flap in Disney Flipbook

Hi All!  Pages 6 and 7 in my Disney Flipbook only need a minor modification for me to add the rest of my Hollywood Studio photos to this mini album.  By adding a side flap, I’ve made room for 4 more smaller size photos.  Additionally, by adding a side flap photos from the same ride are now together.

Disney Flipbook Pages 6 & 7

I have so many great photos from this trip to Disney that I needed to expand the capacity of the With This Ring Flipbook.  Because Flipbooks have an extra wide spine, adding extra flaps and bulky embellishments is no problem.

Flipbook Pages

Here are what the pages look like in the With This Ring Flipbook.

These two pages have a real wedding feel, great for the Flipbook’s intended purpose, but not ideal for Disney.  However, altering these pages to have that Disney flair will be really simple.  Just a bit of pattern paper and a few embellishments will do the trick.

Page 7 is a flap page, which holds 5 photos, so it’s capacity is just right for my photos of Fantasmic!

Disney Transformation

Isn’t it amazing what some pattern paper will do!

By simply matting over the wedding themed pages, and adding a die cut these two pages are now totally Disney.

Page 6 – Under Cut Page

Page 6 holds one landscape 4×6 photo, however I had 5 photos I wanted to display on page 6.

Side Flap Addition

By adding a side flap to page 6 I was able to fit all 5 images on a single page.  A side flap is easy to make and looks great in my mini album.

You can make a side flap by cutting a piece of black cardstock to your desired size being sure to add 3/8″ to the width, then using a score board and stylus score a line at 3/8″ to create a hinge.

The tricky part was the matting, because I wanted the matting on the flap to look like one continuous canvas.  I attached the hinge to the under cut page, then matted the under cut page covering the hinge.  This allowed me to line up the mat on the side flap, mark where to cut and achieve the continuous look I desired.

The layered look pattern paper is ideal for this page.  The side flap holds one 3×4 photo and one 2 3/4″x1 3/4″ photo, while the under cut page holds two 3×4 photos.

Finally, I matted the outside of the side flap with Say Cheese cardstock and added a 4×6 photo to complete the side flap.

The flaps on page 7 hold both landscape and portrait photos.

The top flap can be either the landscape or portrait flap.  I love this photo of Mickey at Fantasmic!, so the landscape flap is on top in my Disney Flipbook.

Landscape Flap Open

Opening the landscape flap reveals a portrait and a landscape photo.  Tucking scraps of paper under each photo produces a layered look.  After inking the edges, the Mouse & Company die cut was added.

Portrait Flap Open

When the portrait flap is open you can see another 4×6 photo, plus two 3×4 photos.  Designed for one portrait image, this flap can also accommodates two 3×4 landscape photos.

Cardstock and a bit of pattern paper are the foundation to the decoration of the portrait flap.  Pattern paper cut into a flag, a die cut and a brad complete the look.

The pattern paper used to mat the base page is so decorative that I only had to ink the edges, then apply it to the page.  A die cut and bling complete this page.

Before and After

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

Photo Count

Page 6 and 7 bring the photo count in my Disney mini album to 32 4×6 photos, 15 3×4 photos, and 1 1 3/4×2 3/4 photo, plus 3 journal spots.  That’s a total of 48 photos and we’re not even half way through the pages in the Flipbook.  It’s so easy to alter Flipbook to fit your needs.
