Heart 2 Heart – Skylark Flip Fold Album

The finished flip fold album measures 6 x 6 x 3/4 inches. The basic construction directions are below. Once you have constructed the album, you are free to decorate it in any style you wish. These basic instructions are adopted from a post December 18, 2012 at http://g45papers.typepad.com/graphic45/2012/12/dec-18-gloria-nicole-arlene.html

Basic Instructions

  1. Cut (1) 6 x 12 piece of cardstock. Score at 2 1/4, 3, 9, and 9 3/4 inches.
  2. Cut (4) 6 x 6 pieces of cardstock.
  3. Attach 2 pieces of 6 x 6 cardstock to the 2 1/4 inch left flap at the 2 1/4 inch fold, sandwiching the flap between the cardstock.  Repeat the process by attaching the other 2 pieces of 6 x 6 cardstock to the 2 1/4 inch right flap.
  4. You will end up with a base page that is 6 inches tall and 19 1/2 inches wide. Score again at 6 and 6 3/4 inches from each end. This is your Album Base. Set this aside.


  1. Cut (3) pieces of cardstock to 6 x 12 inches. Score each piece at 3 and 9 inches. Attach the three pieces of cardstock together by the 3 x 6 inch flaps to form a 6 x 24 inch section that has a center section with “doors.”
  2. Fold the two 3-inch center flaps towards the center.


  1. Fold the 3-inch right flap in and fold the 6-inch right panel towards the center.
  2. Fold the 3-inch left flap in and fold the 6-inch left panel towards the center. Now you have the Album Core. Once it is folded, it will measure 6 x 6 inches.
  3. Attach the Album Core to the inside 6×6 center panel of your Album Base, by attaching adhesive to the back of the Album Core and placing it onto the center of the Album Base.
  4. Fold the right panel to the center.
  5. Fold the left cover panel to the center.
  6. You may choose to ink all edges and folds.
  7. Now you are ready to decorate!

This is a picture heavy blog entry as I have included each page of the mini album. What do you think of the project?
