Flip Flop Mini Album

This mini was made to display some beach photos with my family along the California coast.  The project was inspired by Imaginisce paper that I bought for the June Cricut Magazine Challenge.  I had this idea to mount the book on a real flip-flop and repeat the flip-flop image on the A Shore Thing Imaginisce line.  My local store did not carry the complete line so I added some beachy Splash Dance paper form Imaginisce.  So with my new paper and $1.50 invested children's flip-flops, I was off to create my project.  With my trusty Gypsy, a shape was welded to match the flip-flop.  This shape matched the shoe but I liked the stylized shape of the sandal on the Life is a Beach cartridge.  I ended up welding the top of the Life is a Beach cartridge to my welded piece.  I cut the store bought flip-flop on a band saw using my cricut cut as a template.  (Shhh, don't tell hubby I am cutting foam shoes on his band saw.)

I cut a paper tab that acts like a paper hinge. The tab is sandwiched between the top and bottom pages.
