Hip Hip Hooray for birthdays!  Shellye here today with my first ever flip-style mini album. It's so easy to put together and makes an adorable addition to a table display.  Aside from adding small photos to it, guests can also write little notes inside the pages:

To get started I created the triangular base from a 5"X9" sheet of patterned paper and three pieces of chipboard that measured 3.5"X5" (two pieces) and 2"X5".  I placed the chipboard onto the paper as below:

After attaching the chipboard to the paper, I made creases in between the chipboard pieces and folded.  Next, I used a hole punch to make two sets of holes on both pieces of the 3.5" pages:
As you can see above, I also made a small paper topper to hold the base together at the top.
I wanted to make a cleaner transition between the topper and below, so I used the scallop border from the new Doodle Cuts "Borders& Edges" to cut a blue border from cardstock.
For the cover I made a mat with the "Large Tags" Doodle Cuts and then layered with a Doodle Pop, buttons and Chit Chat Die Cut!
I simply crafted the inner pages (as well as the cover above)  from a 4.25"X 6.5" paper that was folded in half.  I corner rounded the bottom edges after folding and hole punched the top.
All sorts of Doodle Cuts were used to make tags and mats for the following pages:
After decorating all of the pages, I used two 1" rings to clip them to the base.  Bows of ribbons were tied on and it's done!
