Flipbook Mini Album – by Emma, Project Sparkle

Hello, hello! Are we all enjoying the summer? I am sure those of you with children at home, are definitely ready for the holidays to be over! With going back to school in mind, I am sure many of you have a little one starting an important year, or maybe starting somewhere new? Even if its just regular back to school, I know there will be plenty of pictures in those smart uniforms so why not give them somewhere to live…

This Mini album was originally created to send as Happy Mail, and you can find the tutorial here. This video will give you all the basic measurements and instructions for how to put together this little flip book. But today, we are using it for something a little different. I have adapted the flipbook and made it into a mini album, ready to fill with all those back to school photos. You could definitely have your child add a little hand written note about their first day, maybe a list of things they are loving this year or just add in all the cute pictures.

Head on over to todays video, where I create this Mini Album using the Time to Shine kit. We create the flipbook using the kit papers, add a side loading pocket and then embellish the front using a bunch of the stickers, die cuts, tiny words, stars and charms. Once completed this album is 3×4 inches, which makes it easy to store and the perfect size to flip through. In fact it would make a fabulous surprise mail for those family members you wish could be there in person but who maybe live too far or are unable to visit for the time being.

I really hope you give this project a go, it is such a fun way to keep those memories somewhere safe, and it looks great on display! If you don’t have any use for a ‘back to school’ album, this project would be great to fill with your goals for the year (and pictures of them completed!), or keep it as it was first intended and send it to a friend, full of pretty goodies for them to use, or inspiring quotes to encourage them when its their ‘Time to Shine!’

let’s craft again soon, Emma @ProjectSparkle
