    Step 1

    Start by cutting the pieces to fit the pockets in your page protector.

    Step 2

    Arrange the pieces to fit all pockets. The photo will be the flap attached to two center pockets.

    Step 3

    Cut two pieces to fit the pocket of the flap. On this page it was two 3"x4" joining pockets in the center.

    Step 4

    Cut paper for flap. Width: the same as pocket width (on this page 6") Length: one inch larger than pocket size (on this page 5"). Fold paper on 1" mark so the flap will fit pocket size.

    Step 5

    Create a slit in the center of the flap to allow the flap to fit into two pockets and slide on both sides of the connecting seam.

    Step 6

    Attach the photo to the other side of flap.

    Step 7

    If the flap opens upward make sure to attach the photo upside down so when the flap opens the inside image will be in the right direction.

    Step 8

    Before attaching the flap to the paper background pieces, take them out of the pockets and embellish.

    Step 9

    Attach flap to background papers in the pockets.

    Step 10

    This is how the flap looks when it's opened.

    Step 11

    Embellish all pieces and add journaling.
