Expand the number of photos you can include in a layout with an interactive waterfall technique. It's beautiful with the Paris Flea Market collection! (And I can't believe my girl is 14!)
Waterfall Mechanism Closed
Follow these steps to create a waterfall page: 1. Cut seven 4.75x3.25" pieces of Black Plain. Score and fold each piece horizontally at 2.25". (Not in half.)
2. Adhere the back of one short flap to the back of one long flap with the non-folded edges aligned. Repeat to create the waterfall-like structure.
3. Adhere the back flap of the last waterfall page to a 5x5" White Print base. Align the folded edge of the flap with the left edge of the paper, and center from top to bottom.
4. Cut a 3.25x6.25" Black Plain strip. Mark 2.5" from the left edge.
5. Close all of the flapped pages and adhere the outside of the first folded page to the marked spot on the strip, aligned from top to bottom. The strip will function as a pull tab.
6. Swing the pull tab around to the back, bringing it beneath the 5x5" White Print base.
7. Flip over the mechanism and place foam tape onto the 5x5" White Print base in a "U"-shaped pattern to create space for the mechanism to work. More than two layers of foam tape may be required.
8. Attach the mechanism to a scrapbook page.
9. Decorate with cutaparts and photos.
