Retro Flip Mini Album Tutorial

Hello all here is the tutorial for the "Birdhouse mini album" I have a video on my Youtube channel called "Retro Flip Mini Album Tutorial part 1" It should be done uploading soon. Part 2 is now up on YouTube.

You will need a total of 8 base pages .

Each base page will need these sheets of card stock.
7 by 8, 6 by 9 and 6 1/2 by 8

Score (when I say on the xx" side I mean that measurement is at the top of the score board)
6 by 9 sheet at 1/2 and 8 1/2 on the 9" side
6 1/2 by 8 sheet at 1/2 on the  6 1/2" side

The pockets for the pages:
Page style 1
4 sheets of 4 by 4" card stock. Score 1/2 and 3 1/2 on one side of the cs. Creating flaps. Do this to each of the sheets.
     Tags for this page measure 2 3/4 by 3 3/4

Page style 2
1 sheet cs cut at 6 by 5 scored at 1/2 and 4 1/2" on the 5" side
2 sheets of cs cut at 4 by 4. Score 1/2 and 3 1/2" side on the 4" side

     Tags for this page measure 4 1/4 by 5 3/4 and 2 3/4 by 3 3/4

You will create 2 of each of these page styles to create a total of 8 pages.

The below part will be covered in the next video part 2. But I wanted all the measurements on the same post.

You will now need to create 4 library style pages.

1 sheet cs that measures  6 by 5 3 by 6.  Score the  3 by 6 sheet on the 6" side at 1/2 and 5 1/2". This is the pocket for the front of the undercut page. For the pocket on the back of the page you will need a sheet of cs that measures 7 by 3 1/2. Score on the 7" side at 1/2 and 6 1/2.

Pockets for inside pages. You will create 4 of each style.

You will need 4 sheets of cs cut at 4 1/4 by 9" Score on the 9" side at 1/2 and 8 1/2 " this will be the vertical pockets.
You will then need 4 sheets of cs cut at 4 by 8" Score on the 8" side at 1/2 and 7 1/2. This will be the horizontal pockets
You will need 4 sheets of cs cut at 9 by 3. Score on the 9" side at 1/2 and 8 1/2". This will be the smaller of the vertical pockets.


You don't have to create all of these pockets you can pick and choose what pockets you want on what pages. It's all up to you.

Hidden hinge binding
1 sheet cs cut at 8 by 11 and one sheet cut by 3 1/2 by 11.
Score on the following measurements with the 11" side at the top of the score board.
1 1/2, 1 3/4, 2  1/4, 2 3/4, 3 1/8, 3 5/8, 4 1/8, 4 1/2,5, 5 1/2, 5 7/8, 6 3/8, 6 7/8, 7 1/4, 7 3/4, 8 2/8, 8 5/8, 9 1/8, 9 5/8, 10, 10 1/2
