Flippin' and Foldin'

Dear Friends,
Life is busy and can “bee” overwhelming at times…and it’s in the middle of that chaos that you need to get “busy as a bee” with your creative side and refresh your soul with some fun and lighthearted art from the heart! The “bee-autiful” thing about creating art from the heart is that whether you’re needing to send “bee-lated” birthday greetings, remind someone to “bee-lieve” in themselves, or simply let someone know you’ll “bee” thinking about them, you’ve not only accomplished your act of kindness through remembering and touching the hearts of friends and loved ones with your creative projects, but you’ve refreshed your soul and refocused your heart as well! Join us in spreading joy and “bee-autiful” creations with the new Sweet as Honey Collection by Heartfelt Creations! Here' a flip-fold mini album

Instructions:Make this flip fold album using Pocket and Flipfold Inserts E-Kraft and score the folds. Size used 11.75"x 21" and after the fold the size of the mini album is 4.5"x 8.5".

For the top Flap, cover it with the pattern paper from the Sweet As Honey Collection, size is 4.375"x5.25" and distress the edges and adhere it with Designer Dries Clear Adhesive. Now cut ornate Border and Pocket Die and adhere it on the flap as shown.

Next create a band size 1.5"x 4.875" on the left side and 1.5"x 3.875" on the right side as shown adding a magnet on the band.

Arrange some elements from the designer paper collection with matching die and sprinkle crystal clear glitter and arrange them as shown.

Stamp some honey bees from Sweet as Honey cling stamp set and cut them with matching die, color them with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers, and sprinkle crystal clear glitter with Designer Dries Clear Adhesive

For the next fold adhere the designer paper and distress the edges. At the bottom add the sentiment "Home is where my honey is" with Sweetheart border die as shown and adding some sweet honey bees. Next adhere Sweetheart border die on the top edges of the next fold. Inside pages are all decorated with the designer paper along with the waterfall pages.

So, now that you know what all the “buzz” is about, join us in “bee-ing” Sweet as Honey and sharing “bee-autiful” art from the heart wherever you go!
