Bird Song Flip Out Mini Book and Note Pad

Here's a Notepad and a fun Flip Out Mini Book  project inspired by attending the La-la Land Retreat (October 2014).  See a previous post for the original concept and deisgn by Irina here posted February 15, 2015.   The notebook is on the left and the Flip Out Mini Book is on the right side. Decorative papers used are from Graphic 45 Bird Song Collection. More details below:
Note pad: finished 4-1/4" x 6-1/4". Graphic 45 Bird Song Collection paper covered on mat board: finished 3-1/12" x 5-3/8". Shanghai Lady (part of the 12x12 paper) mounted on chipboard.  Decorative top is: 4" x 3-1/8  2-3/4" x 1-1/2 (exposed). The note pad cover is an item found in a non profit warehouse - a lucky find since the cost was extremely minimal!!!!
Inside notepad: Graphic 45 Bird Song collection paper is cut  3-3/4" x 5-7/8, The
pocket is cut 2" x 3-3/4". Tags are from the collection. Note pad is purchased from the Dollar Tree store.
 A closer look at the tags:
The Fold Out mini:
Size is 3-1/4" x 4-1/4" (without extensions). A 3" circle Happy Birthday die is from Tessler.
The Mat is 3" x 4", mounted with black chipboard strips (instead of using foam squares) that make a "channel" for the top pull out tag. The top pull out card: 2-1/2" x 3-1/2", decorative top (cut using my Silhouette) 2-1/2" x 1-7/8" exposed.
The left and right side pull out card sizes are: 2-1/2" x 3-1/2", decorative side 3-1/2" x 5/8"
Note: I added a 3-1/4" x 4-1/4" pocket (adhesive on 3 sides) for the left side pull out tag - the original design did not have this feature.
Tags pulled out from the top and sides:
