Another flip card album using the Circle Card Thinlits Die

Another year of group cards to make for my co-workers.
This is what they look like closed with a belly band:
 Here's the belly band slid off:
 Side view of how it all folds up:
 First section opened up:
 How it looks all opened up, plenty of spaces for everyone to sign the birthday card:
 Another view:

I found a video on Pinterest showing me how to make them:
You only need two 12 X 12 papers, the Circle Card Thinlits die, my Big Shot, the 2-1/2" circle punch, and a ruler
You cut one a little under 5-1/2"
The second one, you cut 3" on the left side and cut it into three 4" X 3" pieces and two a little under 5-1/2" X 9"
Then you measure 4" from the left edge and line it up to the first score line of the die:
Then, you connect them all up, starting with the #1 piece that makes the cover:
then the #2, then, #3, and lastly the #4.  You make a variety of valley and mountain folds to make it all fit in the cover.  Here's a view from the top.
Then, you use the 12" extra scrap to make a belly band to hold it all together.  Then, decorate the inside and outside as you wish.
Once I got the hang of it, I started cranking them out...This is what 24 of them look like.

Thanks for checking in!
