Flag book spine

Sorry my photos yesterday didn't show how the flags are attached. There is a piece of card stock that is accordion folded and attached to the front and back covers and the flags are glued to the folds.
I first learned of this project from a Diana Trout you tube video, you can see it here:
Then after mentioning it to my creativity group one of the members sent me this link she found: I mostly followed the instructions in that basic flag book tutorial except I didn't use her dimensions. It is very simple and I didn't have to buy anything. If any of you decide to make one, send me a link if you post on your blog about it.  Here is a link to my creativity groups blog, which shows further pictures of the process:  It is a fun project to do as a group.

Okay, now my slow brain gets it!
Great photos on this---I'm going to have to bookmark the pages so *when I have time* (hahaha) I can look at it leisurely, and take notes.
I think there are tons of possibilities with the project, and love the way yours turned out!

Oh, Jan, thank you so much for all this information and the wonderful photos. This helps a lot! I would like to try something like this. (Perhaps while I'm sleeping). Hahaha
Seriously, I want to find some time to try this.
Yours looks soooo good!!!

Hi Jan,
What a fantastic idea-like ATC's you could paint minature designs or background techniques.
Thanks for sharing,

Thanks everyone for your enthusiasm. It was a fun project. Now, time to move on to something else. I believe I shall bead something....

WOW! This looks like a lot of fun. I don't think I have the patience for this one. By the time mine is done it will be smothered in glue! Have a great weekend.

Mooing cows! I hope they differ from the mooing of real cows.

Ah yes, only if I really really love it, I will exercise patience.

Are you near the shore or in the mountains. I have been to Oregon only once and we drove through the Nevadas to Klamath Falls up the Willamette Valley. Went to Crater lake, that is a sacred place and then later drove down to California along the coast. BEAUTIFUL, beautiful country. I wss 5 months pregnant then and not a lot of rest stop with bathrooms ACK!
