Flip Flaps!

I had heard of the Close To My Heart Flip Flaps, had used one on a page I created last year, but after watching this video decided it was time create my first page using multiple Flip Flaps.
Please Note: Prices referred to in this video are in US$. You can see the AU$ on my website.



Last year, while flicking through the Magic Scrapbooking Program book, the "Abracadabra" layout on pages 98-103 caught my eye! So that is the layout idea I used to create this Easter 2013 page. 

The front of the page with Flip Flaps closed

Page with left and right Flip Flaps opened - showing the next two Flip Flaps closed

All four Flip Flaps opened so you can see the page and the under side of all four Flip Flaps
