Silly Valentine’s Day Mini Flip Book

Mini Flip Book, Cover.

I’m in month 2 of use up my stash and shop my closet. Part of the goal is to use more of my die cuts. Of course, I had to purchase some new ones to help me with using the old ones. That’s the crafter’s thought process. For Christmas I received the Diamond Press slimline nested die cuts as part of a boxed set from HSN. (I think they sold out) One of the products Beth Kingston, content creator for Diamond Press, showed a mini flip book using the dies, I was hooked. I decided to make a Silly Valentine’s Day Mini Flip Book using the Gecko Galz digital images.

I’m using up a Paris themed double-sided scrapbook paper pack. One side has a lovely, embossed gold design and the other has pink stripes. The other paper I selected had music paper on one side and the Eiffel Tower on the other. I decided to crop the paper so that a little bit of the Eiffel Tower would appear as you flip through. It would appear as if you were ascending the tower.

I used the largest decorative die to cut the cover. I went one size lower to cut the pages. For the middle page, I used the smallest sized die. I handstitched the binding using a simple 3-hole system. The ribbon was purchased on Etsy in a variety pack.

I then fussy cut out Valentine images from the Gecko Galz digital products. I sifted through the images to see which ones matched in size and relevance. I added a couple of pieces of washi tape to embellish.

For the center page, I wrote “won’t you be mine?”

This can be tucked inside a box of candies, an assortment of flowers, or simply stand on its own. Personalized notes can be written on the blank pages.

Supplies: cutting dies, die cut machine, scrapbook paper, hole punch, ribbon, needle to thread ribbon through the holes, washi tape, glue stick, and images.

I used the following Gecko Galz digital images:
