Flip Flop-ping!

Happy Friday, crafty friends!
Today I'm up over on the 
with this super fun and unique "Flip Flop" Mini Album!

To create the album, I've used the new “Beach Day” Collection and the pair of 
flip flops that I found at the Silhouette Design Store!

 To start off, I sized the flip flops svg file so that each one measured approximately 8.25”H. 
 Next, I added a small shadow behind them and used that area to cut from the white cardstock,
 or base pages of the album.

 After cutting out the ‘shadow’ of each flip flop from white Carta Bella cardstock,
 I cut the original flip flops from the “Summer Chevron” patterned paper.  
The accent pieces were cut from the reverse of the same patterned paper and attached
 with foam adhesive.  The patterned paper flips flops were added to the white shadow
 pieces and then embellished with ephemera, chipboard and decorative brads.
 For the inner pages, the two shadows and flip flops were welded together to form a single cut
 around both.   To create the ‘backs’ to each page, the design was flipped to mirror the original design.
  This made it easy to match up front and back pages and makes the album even sturdier.


 Various embellishments such as enamel dots, chipboard stickers, die-cuts, brads and
 stickers were used to decorate each page.  Foam adhesive was used behind some of the 
pieces for extra dimension.



 To attach all of the pages together, I used two 1” rings and a hole punch.  
Only the RIGHT front page of the album was attached to the first set of double-pages.  
All of the other pages were attached through the LEFT front page’s ring,
 but there are several ways that you could attach them together!

Here is a list and links of the products that I used from the "Beach Day" Collection:

  You can also add more interactive pieces by including journal tags, envelopes or clear
 pouches for ephemera!
I hope you all have a greatttt weekend...maybe something "beachy" so you can 
have some fun photos to display in your own flip flop album :)
