Flip-Pal Mobile Scanner Blog Hop Week 2 - Matchbook Sticker Books

Hi everyone!

Happy Thursday!

It is time for another fun project using the Flip-Pal Mobile Scanner!

If you are just tuning in and missed week 1, we made a "Make It Happen Journal".

I used a scanned image of my favorite owl pillow for the cover!

This week we will make Matchbook Sticker Books with our scanned images!

They are so fun, fast and functional that you will be making them for everyone as a wonderful, personalized gift!

Don't forget, Valentine's Day is just around the corner!

How fun would it be to include a sticker book in the card?

Let's get started! :)

I chose to scan the glass coasters I made last Fall for my cover art with my easy to use Flip-Pal Mobile Scanner!

I made the two books from this one scan...

1. Print your image as an 8 x 10 on 8.5 x 11 cover stock weight paper.

2. Cut the off the white border and then cut the scanned image in half into two 4 x 10

3. Fold one end up appoximately 3/4". (It does not have to be exact.)

4. Fold the top to sit under the flap about 1/4" so that it catches and does not slip out.

5. Print out or use your favorite sticker sheets and cut them so that they fit flat in the bottom area from the bottom to top crease. I stacked about 4 sticker strips in my book but you can add more. Please customize this project to your own wonderful ideas!

(My address labels were printed on Avery 8250 and cut to 4.5" in length x 1 of their columns which measures 2 3/4". You can use any labels or stickers that you would like.)

6. Now just place a staple at the bottom of the folded area being careful not to staple a sticker. :)

Tuck the top flap under fold and it is done!

It was so fast and fun that I made a second book out strips of the pugs without my address and did the same process using two staples to secure the two strips. :)

The Flip-Pal mobile scanner makes it so easy to create fun and interesting images from your favorite quilts, dolls, rugs, photos, etc.!

What a great idea! I think this would be a great treat for Valentine's for the kids at school. The stickers inside, too clever!

Great idea and a great gift for someone who is going away to school. Just stick in some stamps with cute retuen lables and make their lives a little easier.
