instax // create a flip scrapbook

as you can see, Im back with a instax collab post and we are back onto crafts!! yay!!
today is an easy diy scrapbook that you can make with just things that you have at home
if you don't have book rings, a pretty piece of ribbon would be a great substitute
and did I mention that there is a free printable as well!!

you will need //
printable scrapbook covers // instax prints // card stock // hole punch // ruler // pencil // scissors // book rings or ribbon

1 // cut out your preferred (or all of them) cover from my free printable that you can get here if you missed it

Ive got a gold glitter one which is a new technique I learnt on photoshop, a pink instax, cactus and minimalistic stripes as well. Hopefully there is something perfect for you!

2 // Cut out a back cover out of some card stock. The measurements are 8.6 x 5.4 which is just a little bigger than the pictures.

3 // hole punch the top left corner of your cover, back cover and instax prints. Be careful not to cut too far into the film as the chemicals will leak. Just a small warning!

4 // get your book rings or ribbon and thread through all the holes and close to finish off your scrapbook

Yay!! Now you can make more and even make them for different occasions with your own covers! Just cut them out of some cardboard and decorate. I know that most of you have washi tape and pens to decorate so please get creative!
