Technique tutorial – interactive flap

Hello friends! Einat here with a fun easy tutorial on how to add interest, surprise and a lot of fun to your layouts. Interactive design in scrapbooking is when you add something that moves to your layout. If it has to be opened, pulled, turned or pushed, it's interactive! Today I'll show you how to add a flap to your layout.

1.       To create the flap you'll need one 4" by 6" photo and two smaller photos. The flap is great for creating more space on your layout there by enabling you to add more photos as well as hiding photos which are not so perfect but you still want to use.
2.       Take a 4" by 12" piece of double sided cardstock and fold in half.

3. Adhere the flap to your layout by putting glue only on the bottom part of the flap.

4.       Adhere the large photo on the outside flap.

5.       Adhere the two smaller photos to the inside of the flap.

6.       Add embellishments, title and your interactive layout is ready!
I'd love to see how you use the technique on a project...leave me a comment with a link to your project photo or you can share it on Scrapping Everyday Miracles Chit Chat Facebook Group... if you aren't a member yet head on over so you don't miss out on the fun.... just click on the link above and then click Ask to Join Group...we will approve you in no time!!!!!

Love your layout Einat! I always forget to add interactive things like this to my layouts. You could put hidden journaling in this folder too.
