Scrapbook Flip Photos

We've all been there....too many beautiful photos and not enough room on your scrapbooking page to fit all of them.  It is so hard to eliminate any pictures of your great vacation or your little bundle of joy.  You don't always have to pick and choose.  When I run into that problem, I create a secret flip page in my book.

Here's what you can do:

Pick out your different photo borders.  One border can be attached right to the layout.  Place your photo on it, off-center, leaving extra room to the left.

Now, pick your top photo border.    Place your photo off-center again.  Score the left side to create a crease, so you can lift the top page with ease.  Hold it in place over the bottom page with brads or eyelets.

You can use the underside of the top page for another photo, turning that space for one photo on your layout into a space for three or more photos.  Plus, you could certainly do more than one on a layout.

It is wonderful to be able to use all of your photos, but the best part is it so exciting to make your scrapbook interactive.
