Flip out scrapbook

Inspired by Pinterest, once again! I saw this Fold Up Scrap Album and had to make it!

Remember this box corner pop up card? I blogged about it in this post.

Instead of making this 4"X4" card, you use 4 12"X12" papers and with each one, you score at 6" on both sides so you make a "T."
Then, use your diagonal score and score from the top left corner to the center.  Next, cut from the bottom to the center only.
 Then, fold in all the straight lines
 And then fold on the diagonal line.
 And tuck in one of the squares under the other square.
Flip it so the diagonal side is on the bottom and you will get something like this:
Stack them together like this, I used 2 different pieces of DSP (Designer Series Paper) and alternated them.
 Hold it so that there are extra flaps laying down on both the front and back of the album.
 Use some ribbon about 15" and fold it in half and hide it behind the extra flap, using Sticky Strip to hold it down.
 Then, adhere the extra flap down on the front and the back of the album.
 This is what the "spine" of the album looks like:
 Adhere all the squares together, then all the four sections to each other.
To decorate the pages, you will need the following:
  • 4 Scallop squares of 4 Top Note dies
  • 4-5-1/2" squares
  •  4-5" squares cut diagonally
 Decorate as you wish.  Here are the four sections.
 Here are the back and front of the album:
Here are 2 more albums I made, a pink and brown number...

And another album for a co-worker who is leaving to be a SAHM (Stay at Home Mom)  Good Luck Erica!!!
This is the album opened.
Here's a top view of the album.
Here is the back and front view of the album:
I'm addicted to these!  I can't stop making them!!! Here's one I made for a friend that has a grandson who had a jungle themed nursery.

 Here are the punch animals close up, the lion
 the giraffe,
