Always and Forever! by Shellye McDaniel
You're about to FLIP over this!  Today I'm happy to share a fun and easy idea for incorporating those gorgeous chipboard frames into a single mini album.  Similar projects have definitely been done before, but I've taken this one a step further by adding to a sturdy chipboard base for easy flipping!
To get started: I cut a piece of chipboard backing for each of the frames.  I simply measured each frame and cut the chipboard slightly smaller and then added various patterns of paper to the fronts and backs.  The covered pieces were then attached to the back of each frame.
After constructing the pages I began embellishing with all of the fun things: foam stickers, layered 3D stickers, washi tape, die cuts, enamel stickers and pom trim!
Finally, I dressed the 6X9 premade easel frame with a swatch of paper.  Each of the frames were punched at the top with two holes.  I used two 1" rings to hold the frames together (you could also use ribbon, twine, chain or jumbo paper clips).  To the back of the last chipboard (frame), I added strips of foam mounting tape and then attached to the easel!  There are many ways that you may choose to go about doing this, so do whatever works best for your project.  
In finishing I added some hand-tied ribbon bows and pearl wire to the front.  If you have a spiral easel (such as the one I used), you could also tie strips of ribbon or fabrics to the wire!
Thanks for joining!

    Absolutely love this, is this a class or is it ok for me to copy and make it my own?
