Okay, I did some searching, and I didn't find anything, so here I go.

I'm making my first REAL scrapbook. I have a bunch of pages put together so far and haven't really worried about putting it into an actual book. But now I'm almost done with it. The problem I am having is that I have a lot of interactive things on some of my scrapbook pages. I.e. a letter is glued to the page, so you can unfold the letter to read it, there are little "books" that you can open the pages of to reveal quotes from the book. Things like that.

It's a small scrapbook; the pages are only 6x6. I have page protectors for all of the pages, but... that's the problem. The page protectors protect the page, but don't allow whoever is looking through it to unfold things. I don't want to have to take the page out every time I want to unfold and read a letter. But at the same time, I want to be ABLE to read the letter.

I suppose I could leave some of the pages without protectors, but then how would I get the page to stay in the book? The page is 6x6 and the book itself is a little larger than that for the posts.

Am I making sense? Any suggestions?

Cut slits into the page protector to make "flaps" around your interactive pieces.

I often use hidden journaling with just a "tab" to pull out the story - - so a simple slit cut into the protector allows the person looking through the book to pull it out and put it back while still protecting the page.

Hope this helps!

That should work for most all of the pages. I'll try it out. : )

Thanks so much!
