I finished my In-Law's Flip Book! As London would say "Yay, me!". (Do any of you have kids that watch The Suite Life of Zack and Cody???)
I wanted to have this ready for my IL's 50th Anniversary party in Sept. Ah, well, better late than never, I suppose! :)
I asked my MIL and FIL for their favorite colors, some of their favorite photos, and to provide 3 words that best described their spouse. I designed this 5x7 book for them using all of their information.
There are 10 small flaps in the book. 2 Flaps have my IL's names, 5 of the flaps have the words they chose for each other (one word was common........therefore 5 instead of 6), the remaining 3 flaps have the names of their 3 sons. Good thing they had 3 kids! LOL!!!!
Front: College photos of my IL's -- aren't they great?! :)
Note: If you cannot find a metal "A" in your stash, take your extra "V" and turn it upside down!
Front view, open:
Ah, the kids! I'm sure my BIL's and my hubby will LOVE that I'm sharing these pics with you! LOL!!! Especially the bottom right....nice wig, Doug!
My "family shot" pull out page. Top pic is in Japan around 1968 or so, middle pic is on my wedding day in 1988, and the bottom pic is at the 50th Anniversary party this last Sept, 2007.
On the very back page I placed a photo taken of all of the grandkids at the Anniversary party. You can't see it, but on the inside front page I have my IL's wedding photo dated 1957. The back page has the date w/ the grandkids 2007.
