Flip and Fold Album


I'm here to share my first try on the Flip and Fold album - designed by Dr.Sonia. I've made it using hexagons instead of octagons as you would see in her creation. Check out her tutorial here.

This album is a farewell gift to a friend who moved back to India from US. Check this video first to see how it is! And scroll down for more details and pics :)

I've used Gina Marie Stitched Hexagon dies for all the hexagon shapes, and Nellie's Choice Multiframe Heart dies for all the heart shapes. I did not have the right pink shade of cardstock I was expecting, so I've used Altenew's Coral Berry ink on white cardstock on all the base hexagons. The patterned papers used on the outside are from DCWV, they are gorgeous in shine and shimmer, with embossed texture! The inner sheets are from Altenew's Reflection scrapbook collection, so it is a mix and match with similar shades :)

Here are some detailed pictures for you :)

Every hexagon has a letter in black, on a golden heart on the outside of the hexagon. It reveals the name of my friend 'Swathi', as you open them one by one. This was a gift from 3 friends together, so on the inside, I have added 3 photos and 3 blanks for each of our personal messages. The hexagon was a perfect choice since it has 6 flaps and her name has 6 letters, everything fit in so well!

The base or middle hexagon is a strong one made from cardboard and covered with patterned papers. All the flaps are attached to this base using gold ribbon. On the base, I have handwritten the words using a black marker and added 3 small red hearts along with 2 pink butterflies from Itsy Bitsy. I gave an additional border using matching gold pearls sticker.

The album is held together using a belly band made from white cardstock and wrapped with gold ribbon. I added a gold and nested pink heart to the center of the belly band, along with handwritten words 'Happy Vibes' to share the memorable moments we had together!

I also made a hexagon box from scratch using thick white cardstock. I decorated it with a golden star designed shimmer cardstock and added a pink ribbon bow to make it a gift :)
