A flop flop scrapbook is one that opens one way, then another - so a page could 'flip' to the left like normal or 'flop' upwards

What you need...
  • Paper Kit: Basic Grey, Fresh Cut, 6” x 6”; Becky Higgins, Project Life, Sunshine
  • Die-cut card and transparency shapes, Basic Grey, Fresh Cut
  • Card, white
  • Paper, vellum
  • Punch, corner rounder
  • Binder wire
  • Cinch binding machine
  • Adhesives: double-sided tape, glue
  1. Round the corners of card and vellum, 17cm x 21cm. Mount a large photograph to the card, then add two frames and die-cut shapes from the Fresh Cuts pack onto the image using double-sided tape. Matt a photo onto a smaller card piece. Secure vellum behind a frame, then add a die-cut shape and adhere to the photo.

  2. Now decide how you want the pages to look. List all of your planned layers, deciding where the photos, cards and interactive elements will go. Decide what pages will open upwards or sideways. Break up the pattern by overlapping with vellum sheets, then add embellishments from the transparencies kit.

  3. Add little frames onto the pictures to highlight the important parts. Create a front page, 10.5cm x 17cm, by adding strips of card and Fresh Cut paper. Use die-cut shapes, frames, a transparency and red gems to add depth.

  4. Next, put everything together. Remove the side attaching pieces from the pile and position each one exactly how you want them to be placed in the book. Feed into the binding system, punch, then add wire. Close the wire to secure. Repeat the process to attach the top folding pieces.
