Hello We R friends! I’m back to share a Valentine’s Day project created with the help of a few We R Memory Keepers tools. Some of these tools have become a staple for me; I use them all the time for a variety of crafty projects, as they allow me to get the job done quickly and efficiently.
For today I’ve decided to make a Valentine loaded trifold flip book to send to one of my best crafty friends.
I started by trimming my paper to measure 7×12 inches, and scored it at 4 and 8 inches with the Mini Score Board.
I wanted the folding flaps to have slanted corners, so I marked them vertically at 3.5 inches an d cut them with a craft knife using the 12” ruler that comes in the Ultimate Tool Kit as my guide.
Once the base was ready, I started making my embellishments. First, rosettes in different sizes, which I simply embellished with a sticker in the center and transformed into paper clips.
Next two tags, that I used to wrap washi tape around and add as a little surprise.
Lastly, I created a “love” word with the Happy Jig, which I thought it would be a nice and sweet addition.
In order to hold all these goodies, I added pockets to each flap by simply stitching a strip of paper down. I embellished each section of the flip book with lots of die cuts and stickers from the Crate Paper La La Love collection.
A couple of weeks ago I made some Valentines Pockets with the Pocket Punch Board for my kids’ classmates (you can find the tutorial here), and I liked them so much that I “stole” a couple to add to this flip book. They not only fit perfectly, but allowed me to bring in an extra interactive element that is always fun to discover 😉
Thank you for stopping by today! I can’t wait to give this flip book to my sweet friend. What crafts are you making for Valentine’s Day?
