How to make the Home Sweet Home Recipe Mini Album video tutorial and measurements

Hi everyone :-)
Here is the video tutorial on how to make the G45 Home Sweet Home recipe mini album.
This recipe album can also be used as a regular flip mini album.
The album cover measure 9 1/5 x 6 3/4 and the flip pages are 6 1/4 x 4 1/4 and 6 1/4 x 3 3/4. 

Video tutorial

I will have my cake recipes on the front flaps and dinner recipes on the backside of the flip out pages.

The album can be standing up or along a wall to display the recipes and photos.

Will have photos of the recipes inside the frames on the top and write the recipes on the cream cardstock bellow. 

All the pages can be folded down and out.

Used the tab die from Tim Holtz to make the labels.

On the backside of the recipe flip pages I plan to have dinner recipes.

Close up picture of the backside flip pages.

All the pages can be folded in different directions depends on how you like them displayed.

Here the backside flaps are folded over the front.
Used the solid papers from the 6x6 paper pack to write the recipes on the backside.

This you can adjust to any size you like as I tell in the video.
Flip page. I used 9 in my album
8 magnets on each page but you can also use a belly band to close up the pages.
There are many ways to do this. You can fasten a belt under the hinge and fasten it on the top with a closure or you can cut out 2 strips of paper backed on cardstock and turn them around the pages and back cover so it easy slides of. You can also use a stretchy cord with a loop to go around fastened on the back cover

Measurements for the cover of the album.
Adjust it in relation to how many flip pages you put inside.

Used 3 layers of multi medium matte to glue down the images on the cover so it can be used in a kitchen without getting dirty :-)
