Birthday Flipbook - A "Kit & Staples" Project - July Cards, Tags, & More Kit
Hey, all! Welcome back to the Tres Jolie blog!
For my first project this month using the Cards, Tags, & More Kit, I’ve put together a little flipbook that can have notes and small photos added for a little memory book.
Total [kit] materials consumed for this project? About three sheets of the paper and half of the seam binding. That’s it! And although I use a couple of circle punches from my stash, you could easily omit the circles or use household objects to trace some circles on the backs of the cardstock and fussy cut them out! Check out my video to see how I put this together!
I used the die from the kit to cut three doilies out from two different papers, stuck the doilies together, back-to-back, cut them in half, and placed them at the tops of the pages before folding the booklet together. I used the rest of the papers to make the tags and circles.
I added stitching along the top and bottom of my booklet, but if you don’t want to, it isn’t necessary. Glue will hold the doily halves in place just fine.
Some pages don’t have tags on them, instead I opted to create a label shape out of the patterned paper before layering with my circles.
I cut the floral sheet into 3 4x12in strips, then scored at 3, 6, & 9 inches and trimmed at 9-1/2 inches. I used the 1/2 flap to connect the strips together. The scores are folded in alternating directions, to create an accordion effect, then the backs are glued together (after I had my doilies in place) to create the pages.
I hope you enjoyed this project and it gave you an idea of what can be done with items from this month’s Cards, Tags, & More Kit! I’ll see you again soon.
