Brand NEW Printable Seed packets, NEW Garden Pocket Art Mini Album & Tutorial!

Wow, that was a lot to say in the title of this post!!  A lot to share with you all in one post too!!

Brand NEW to Sherri's MyBestiesShop.com is My Besties Printable Seed Packets shop here and Printable Garden Time Pocket Art shop here!

You can make this amazing Mini Flip Book with the two printables above! 
Another DT, Heather Clarney inspired and challenged me to make a Mini Album 
using a Youtube video tutorial.
Click here to see the basic ATC Sized Mini Album video instructions.

I changed up the "flip" pages by using the NEW Printable Seed packets.  

Here is the mini album cover and pages and below the book is the instructions for changing out the inside flip pages!
 Front cover- Garden Pocket Art turned 3D
 Binding and side view of the 3D image
Full Cover- Front, binding and back
Inside front cover using  NEW seed packets and Garden pocket Art.
*Tip- attach a shank button to the cover by punching a hole and adding a paper clip backing.

First flip page.  Seed packet flips to the back (unlike the youtube video)

 (*clothes pin is holding the pages open so i can take photos)
Each page has a seed packet and a pocket art printable

Tutorial for adding the seed packet to the pocket sleeve:
**If you would like your seed packet to fit like shown in the photos, make sure that your printable measures 10" tall.
 1. Cut out your seed pack and glue the left flap so that it goes inside of the sleeve as shown below.
2. Then glue the sleeve flap (right side and bottom fold) *Make sure you don't glue the left side so that you can attach it to the book binding

Glue the seed packet together to make the "pocket"
You should now have something that looks like this:
The open end you can see above will now slide over the binding strips below and your "flip" page will look like this when opened on this side.

The page will look like this when opened on the reverse side.
 Room for a photo and journaling. Seed packet can hold a card with more photos.

Seed packet Paper Clip Art- Reduce the original Printable Seed packets so that the front measures about 1". Glue the paper clip inside the seed packet and then glue the sides.
