Graphic 45 Bird Song - Flip Book

Hello crafters!

Not long ago I've shared a tutorial on making a flip book, and as far as I already made several of them, all that is left to do now is to embellish them and share the results.

Today I'm posting the pictures of the 4.5" X 4.5" flip book I made using "Bird Song" papers by Graphic 45. Instead of making a flip mechanism only on one side of the book, I decided to make it from both sides. I"m quite happy with the outcome.

The flip mechanism works as follows:

You can find the tutorial on making a 6" X 6" flip book in this post.

I did my best making the front cover look as 3D as possible. I made a frame with the transparent sheet and placed several cutout lights inside. I also cut out the birds, a few flowers and added a couple of chipboard elements:

To make the embellishment on the spine, I used a chipboard key and flowers from the collection, embossed the back side of them with a black embossing powder and the front side with a clear one. Added eyelets and hung them to the chains:

The paper is so colorful and beautiful! I love it!

The flip pages are on the both sides of the book:

A closeup of the charms on the spine:

Let me know if you need the measurements for cutting the papers in this book, and I'll be happy to help.

I hope like my today's project!
