Flip Box Album Instructions

I decided to try something different.  I wanted to include written cutting instructions.  Hope that you find them helpful.

                                               Flip Box Album Instructions


Scrapbook Paper:
   Cut 1 piece 8" X 8" to cover front chipboard cover.
   1 - 6 X 6 Paper pack
   extra cardstock for mats

   Cut 2 pieces 6 1/4" X 6 1/4" (Cover 1 on the outside with the Scrapbook paper for your front cover.)
   Cut 4 pieces 6 1/4" X (Slightly smaller than) 1/2".
   Cut 2 pieces 6 3/16 X  (Slightly smaller than) 1/4".

   Cut 4 pieces 6 1/4" X 7 1/2" and score on 7 1/2" side at 6 1/4" and 6 3/4".
   Cut 2 pieces at 6 3/16" X 7" and score on the 7" side at 6 1/8" and 6 3/8".
   Cut 2 pieces 6 1/4" X 6 1/4" one to cover outside back cover and slightly trim one to cover inside back          

Cover outside of front chipboard with scrapbook paper.
Fold cardstock on score lines.  Apply tape to area after last score line on all cardstock pieces.  
Apply the 4 - 6 1/4" wide pieces around the edge of the back cover on the outside.  Then apply the two smaller pieces opposite each other on the inside of the back cover.  Apply covering for back and the trimmed piece on the inside of the back cover.  Apply the covered chipboard to one of the outer flaps.  Apply the small strips to the inside of each flip for added support.  Decorate as you like.
