Twist and Pop Flap

Hi There! Decided to add more interaction to this page, so I added a twist and pop flap to my Disney Flipbook.  The twist and pop flap is a fun way to add even more interaction to this interactive mini album.  Additionally, it allows me to add a bunch more photos in an interesting way.

Disney Flipbook Pages 8 & 9

We visited Epcot during the Festival of the Arts, so we did some of the special festival photo ops.  Additionally, the Disney Photopass software has boarders and stickers for the festival.  So I added some to my photos, one of which is below.

The special effects and boarders/stickers add so much to the photos the professionals take, which is one of the reasons I love the photo package.

Flipbook Pages

Pages 8 and 9 in the With This Ring Flipbook are sweet for a wedding, however not ideal for my Disney themed mini.

Flipbook page 8 has a lovely quote, and page 9 is a pocket flap page.

These pages have a real wedding look, but a bit of pattern paper will totally transform them into Disney pages!

Wow what a difference!

Add More Interaction with a Twist and Pop Flap

This album is all about fun ways to display lots of photos from a memorable trip, so adding a pop up totally fits.  Closed the twist and pop flap looks like a portrait style flap, but when opened a row of photos pop out.

Making the Twist and Pop Flap

The flap is simply a twist and pop card.  You can find videos and written tutorials with instructions for making a twist and pop card online.  I altered the size of the card, so it would accommodate a 4×6 photo on the cover and 3×4 photos on the pop up.  However, you could use the standard measurements and crop your photos to fit.

Construct the card base from black cardstock, then mat the twist and pop flap with pattern paper.  I placed magnets under the mat of the top flap, because I want the flap securely closed.

Attaching the Twist and Pop Flap to the Flipbook

Twist and Pop FlapNow it’s time to mat page 8 using the same layered paper style used on other pages.  Position the twist and pop flap, then adhere the right side to the page mat.  I was able to slip layers of paper and embellishments under the flap, because I left the other 3 sides loose, then adhered them after the layers were in place.

The Flipbook pockets are so versatile, because they can hold brochures, extra photos or memorabilia.  Additionally, the pocket front is perfect for a journal spot or smaller photos.

Pocket Mini Flaps

I added mini flaps to the pocket front, so I could display some 3×4 photos.  I love the additional interaction these mini flaps bring to my album.

Twist and Pop Flap

Here’s how they work.  Open the portrait flap to the right to reveal another portrait photo and a landscape one.

Close the portrait flap, then open the landscape flap to the left to see two more landscape photos.  This mini flap is a bit different than the one on page 5, because I had fewer photos to display.

Constructed from black cardstock, then matted with pattern paper, these mini flaps add even more interaction to my mini album.  Additionally, the pocket front now holds five 3×4 photos.

Pocket Insert

This simple insert is a piece of Say Cheese cardstock with a 4×6 photo attached to each side.

Pocket Flap Open

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

And here’s the Disney look.

Gate Fold Turned on Its Side

Yes, normally a gate fold opens side to side, but in this case turning it on its side worked perfectly.  By turning it sideways the gate folds now swings up and down, making a home for 6 landscape 3×4 photos.  Alternatively, it could hold four 3×4 photos on the gate folds and one 4×6 on the base.

Twist and Pop Flap

Magnets keep the gate fold flaps closed for easy page turning.

Under Cut Page

The under cut page is the last spot to decorate on page 9.  I kept this one pretty simple by adding a pattern paper mat, some layers of paper, then a photo.  The Mickey bling adds the finishing touch to the page.

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.  The alterations on pages 8 & 9 brings the photo count in my Disney Flipbook to 69 (36 4×6 photos, 30 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.
