Fun With Flip Flaps™

Have you ever given Flip Flaps™ a try? Are you wondering what we’re even talking about?

Flip Flaps are exactly what they sound like—flaps that you attach to a page that flip to reveal additional photos, sentiments, or designs—and they’re something you can only get with Close To My Heart! If you aren’t quite sure how to incorporate them into your scrapbooking, keep reading! We’re going to show you some fun ways to use them, and you’re sure to get inspired!

If you’re the kind of person that loves taking photos, then Flip Flaps are for you! There’s only so much space on a scrapbook layout for photos, but when you add Flip Flaps to your pages, you can use more of your photos that you wouldn’t have room for otherwise. As you can see above, they come in several different sizes and can be positioned anywhere on a page using the adhesive strip—and they work great with pocket scrapbooking layouts, too! What a fun and easy way to include more photos in your scrapbooking without taking up more space!

A charming way to share more of your photos is to stack your Flip Flaps and create “mini albums” right on your pages! You can stack them directly on top of each other or create a cascading effect, like we did here. Notice that we attached the Flip Flaps to the outside of the Memory Protectors™. This way, our page is interactive while keeping the artwork and photos protected.

Get extra creative with your Flip Flaps by making cute accents out of them. Look at these little presents that double as tiny album jackets! It’s such a great way to add some personality to your pages. Another fun idea is to use Flip Flaps to preserve memorabilia, like postcards or letters, that have writing on both sides.

Try incorporating Flip Flaps into your scrapbooking to extend your creative options and have even more fun preserving your memories! We know you’ll love them, just like we do. 🙂

  6. So love these pages with the flip flaps – such an easy way to get more photos on a page without crowding it… Tell me please, what stamp/compliments have you used for the ‘with You’ in the Happy with You page? It doesn’t seem to be in any of the compliments or stamps that you have listed.

  7. I am a BIG fan of flip flaps. I have them in all sizes and have reordered regularly because I use them so much. I only make one double page scrapbook spread per month and flip flaps are the answer when I have more photos I want to include but don’t have enough room with my layout design. My only fear with each new year is that you will discontinue them, so this is me begging – please keep them always. They are a terrific innovation and save me tons of time!

  8. CTMH, you knocked it out of the park with this post and those interactive gifts! Ingenious! I love how the images convey the interactiveness (that’s a word in the CTMH world LOL) of the Flip Flaps and what it offers us as scrapbookers…not to mention…the artwork is FABULOUS!
