A Flippin Scrapbook

I love how this project turned out - it is quite easy (really) .......This is my version of the Split Coast Challenge "3D129" Kirsten Browns Layered Staggered Flippin Scrapbook Album. A couple versions of this album style and instructions are also on Split Coast Forum site. Finished project size: 4-1/4" x 9".

Here's how to make this project:
(1) 4-1/4" x 11" CS, score @ 2"along the 11" side - I used Real Red CS
(1) 4-1/4" x 11" CS, score @ 3" along the 11" side - I used Merry Moments DSP
(1) 4-1/4" x 11" CS. score @ 4" along the 11" side - I used Chocolate Chip CS
(1) 4-1/4" x 11" CS, score @ 4" along the 11" side - I used Merry Moments DSP

Use the 3/16" corner rounder for all coreners of the (4) pages. Stack each page on top of each other, then use Crop-o-dile to punch hole 1/2" from the bottom edge. Thread elastic cord and add a jingle bell at the end.

Assembled scrapbook should look like this:

Here are the stamps and punches that will be used for the scrapbook tab pages:

After stamping each image on Very Vanilla CS, use the 1/16" Hand held punch and thread elastic cord for these tabs. Apply sticky tape to one side of the tabs, then add to scrapbook page.

Use piercer to make hole for the rhonestone brad. Attach to first scrapbook layer using Mini Glue Dots.

Patti, it is fantastic - but as usual I need "extra help": Where exactly do you punch the hole (in the middle of which page)? And do you just punch one hole at the bottom and wrap the cord around or do you punch another one at the top to thread the cord through? i just don't get it...
Thanks for helping me

Hi Nessie,
Punch the hole 1/2" from the top edge AND also punch a hole ath the bottom edge right in fold line. Then thread the gold elastic cord through the holes. Tie the elastic cord into a single knot, then tie the bow. Hope this will be helpful information.
