FLIP FLAPS - do you use them?

I loved it when Close To My Heart came out with Flip Flaps a few years ago. They are a terrific way to add more photos and/or space to you layouts.  They are made out of the same heavy-duty material that our regular 12"x12" protectors are made of, and the adhesive strip that attaches to your page is extremely strong and durable. They are really reasonably priced and come in three different packaging selections.

Item Z1726 - 10 6x6 protectors - $4.95
Item Z1325 - 12" assortment contains 4  - 6"x12", 2 - 4"x12"and 2 - 8"x12" - $4.95
Item Z4114 - 15 - 4"x6" - $3.95

Here is a "normal" 2 page layout as it would look in your scrapbook (Layout inspired by Shannon Smoldt using CTMH's Mayberry Level 2 kit):

The page on the right has an 8"x12" flip flap attached to the left side and a 4"x12" attached to the right side. It is still just one page in the layout. The flip flaps lay amazingly flat.

Again, a "normal 2-page layout, but I attached 5 - 4"x6" flip flaps (on top of each other) to the top left side photo (Keith eating a worm).

A regular 2-page layout of photos taken inside the 100-year church my friend Karen got married in:

 The church was so beautiful and had ornate gold statues and huge murals on both sides of the aisle. I didn't want to separate the "mood" of the layout, so I added an 8"x12" flip flap to the left side.

Flip Flaps are very versatile, sturdy and reasonably priced. If you haven't tried them yet you really should - I know you'll like using them!
