I've had a couple requests to show exactly how all of the pages for the This Way and That Flip Album go together. I usually work on all of my pages first then assemble but I guess that can be confusing. I thought I'd make it easy and assemble an album with various color papers so you could see where each piece goes.
You're going to start by cutting and scoring the following pieces of cardstock:
**Cut one sheet of cardstock 12" x 8"
Score as follows: 2.25"; 2.75"; 9.25"; 9.75"
(Dark Red in the Example)
**Cut one sheet 6.5 x 8"
**Cut one sheet 6.25" x 8"
**Cut 3 sheets of cardstock exactly the same -
(3) - 12 x 7.75"
Score each sheet at 3" & 9"
**Cut 2 sheets of cardstock 5.5" x 9.5"
Score both sheets of cardstock at 2"
so you end up with a sheet of cardstock that is 2" + 7.5" total.
To Assemble the outer portion of the album -
Dark red album base -
Take the 6.5 x 8" sheet of light red cardstock and affix it to the left side flap of the dark red cardstock base.
Now take the smaller light red sheet of cardstock and glue it to the right side flap of the dark red cardstock base.
Your base should look like this....
(set it aside for now)
Assemble the inside pages:
Next, take all three of the white pages and align them as so:
You now have 6 flaps aligned in a row.
Glue the flaps that touch together - flaps 2 & 3 and flaps 4 & 5.
You should now have 4 flaps as shown.
It folds shut as follows:
The two center flaps fold in towards the center first
then the right side folds in...
and finally the left side folds in.
(sorry for the blurry pic)
Open all of the pages back up so you're at the very center of the pages.
Take one of the blue pages and apply adhesive to the 2" flap.
Align this page so it is centered on the very back page.
Glue the flap of the blue page to the back side of the back page as shown.
Using the second blue page center, align and affix it on the bottom of the back page.
And here are what the pages look all opened up.
Fold the entire set of pages up and glue them to the album base.
Here's what it looks like all folded up ready to be decorated...
And here it is fully opened up.
That is how you assemble all the parts and pieces
to this very unique album!
I hope this helps explain where all of the various parts and pieces go.
It really is very easy once you make your first album.
