love you-multi flap mini

Hey guys,

How is everyone doing.. I am neck in work while my health continues to trouble me. The blood pressure refuses to rise.. I guess high time I picked on a fight.. :P..Haha.. jokes apart it has been really difficult to craft.. I feel sleepy all the time thanks to my low BP..

Anyways sharing with a multi flap mini I made for my bestie... He has been married 3 years and wanted to gift something special to his wife whom he had dated for 12 years before tying the knot. The gift is they 15th anniversary gift (12+3)... :D... They have shared I guess a zillion cards from Archies ( they were the favored customers of our local archies store) and have quite a huge collection of the cards.. So his only request was, the poems from all their numerous cards be incorporated into his mini ( his favorite verses from the cards have been handwritten by me).. I always did write for him in the cards and I guess we continue with the trend.. LOL...

So I made this multi flap mini.. it's a 6x6 mini and it was a huge challenge for I am at a complete loss as to what to put in them.. Moreover since I would be putting in no pics ( that's another album in the making with their journey pics).. So it was digis and lots of mush...

I won't really ramble much.. Just share pictures.. It's a multi-fold mini but I cannot show you the folds through pictures.. I do have a video but have no clue how to edit it.. Still learning.. Once I get hold of how to edit would add it to the end of the post or maybe another post...

So here goes...!!

 cover page

turn the cover and this is how it opens up

this is how the page looks once you turn the page with the deco shells punch

another flap

centre panel unflapped

last fold


all the flaps-unflapped

the end

This was one of the most tedious projects I have ever undertaken.. Took me ages to complete but was worth every minute spent on it.. The smile on the couple's face was unbelievable. I could not have been happier.
