Paper used for this card are from my stash - and it does not use much paper.

Mickey Flip Out Mini Book

This Flip Out Mini Book  project inspired by attending the La-la Land Retreat (October 2014).  See a previous post for the original concept and design by Irina here posted February 15, 2015 and another version using Graphic 45 Bird Song Collection on March 16, 2015.  For this fun flip album the Simple Stories Say Cheese II papers were used.  The oval is using some Yellow card stock - oval was made using the Silhouette. Attach a layer of acetate, pop the oval and acetate with foam squares, then a photo can be enclosed or any other embellishment. 
The Mickey ears tag pulls out from the top.  Ears were easily created using the Silhouette.
Here's the side tag pulled out:
The Mickey Gloves are a FREE SVG cut file from one of the Blog Hops.  They really came in handy for this project. They are popped with foam squares.
Flip up the front page to reveal:
