Fold & Flip Photo Folder

Fold & Flip Photo Folder
Cardstock for folder 9 ½” x 6 ¾”
6 cardstock photo panels measuring 4 ¼” x 6 ¼” each
Scotch tape
Glue or double-sided tape
Up to eleven 4 x 6 photos for inside the folder and some for the cover.


Fold the 9 ½” x 6 ¾” cardstock in half to make a 4 ¾” x 6 ¾” folder. Set aside
Lay out the 6 photo panels on a table as shown (three at the top and three at the bottom).
Leave 1/8” clearance between each panel. Begin taping the panels together.
#1 Tape the bottom left panel and the bottom center panel together as shown. #2 Tape the bottom left panel to the upper left panel as shown. #3 Tape the upper left panel to the upper center panel as shown. #4 Tape the upper center panel to the upper right panel as shown. #5 Tape the upper right panel to the bottom right panel as shown.
Turn the 6 attached panels over and place tape in the same spots as on the front to secure and to contain the sticky part of the tape.
Turn the attached panels back over to the front again and begin folding the panels closed starting with the bottom right panel working counter clockwise until all the panels are folded so that they fit into the folder. Attach the folded panels to the inside back of the folder with glue or double-sided tape. (The bottom center panel is the one to attach to the folder). Add 4 x 6 photos to the panels and decorate the front of the Fold & Flip Photo Folder any way you wish. Enjoy!

are you going to add more photos? some of the steps say to do it as shown, and there don't seem to be photos for that.
