Flag Book Tutorials

The next team book swap will be all Flag Books! I have tracked down several resources for anyone who needs instructions. As you can see from these links, the scrapbooking people seem to have adopted this structure to make photo albums and such, but much before that phenomenon, the flag book has been used a lot for artist's books and there are some truly incredible examples out there and I have included some links below. The basic structure is not difficult, but it can be a very impressive structure when combined with images, colours, shapes, varying page sizes, etc.

Any team members who are interested in participating in this book swap can find all the swap guidelines here on our blog. Have fun making flag books!
