Flip and Fold Mini Album (aka Jacobs Ladder)
This is what I made for my hubby for Father's Day. It is called a Jacobs Ladder flip and fold mini photo album. It is so much fun! I love to flip it back and forth over and over, almost didn't want to give it to him! I might make another one, it really is easy to make, just time consuming. The directions are here Splitcoast Stampers. I also made the box out of card stock, you can buy the kit at clubscrap.com but boxes are super easy to make. The tutorial calls for those blank chipboard coasters. I used card stock and did not use the chipboard, it is sturdy enough without it. I made it plain and simple on the outside since it is for his desk at work, that way it isn't too crafty for a professional environment. The inside I decorated a little more but kept it masculine and clean, just the way he likes things. No frills for him! OK so I did use a little ribbon. Think he will notice?!
The last picture I tried to show how it climbs down the ribbon as you flip it back and forth but I don't think it really shows you how it moves. For that you have to go to the web-site I listed above. It is a great tutorial and I also printed a copy for reference. I hope someone makes this and lets me know what they think!
