This sure was a fun project!  I was looking through some card making books on and came across this fold which I had not seen before.  It looked fun, so I dove in!  I love the way the little cards inside flip one direction then the other - hence, the flip-flop name!  It is an accordion fold down the middle that gives it its unique look.  I used SCAL for the circle on the front.  It's part of a great group of freebies over at SVG (click here to download it if you have the SCAL program!)    

In all the card was a bit labor intensive, but only because I wanted both sides of the smaller inside panels to be "finished off" on both sides.   It was fun putting on all the different little sentiments on each one...



I also discovered a great video today over at StampTV  that shows a gadget called the "Bow Easy" used to make perfect bows.  It's really a neat gadget:

I was impressed, so I decided to track one down.  I found one on e-bay for $6 but decided I wasn't THAT impressed, so, I made one of my own out of card board and it works great!  Neccesity Is The Mother Of Invention!!!


  1. Wow! What a beautiful card! Do you have the dimensions and "how tos" that you would be willing to share? It is a really neat card!
