4" x 4" Bind It All Flip Book Tutorial

I was overwhelmed with the requests for a tutorial on the 4" x 4" Bind It All Flip Book - thank you all for your kind words.

I also wanted to let you know, the papers, chip board covers, and Bind It All (which by the way is still ON SALE) are all from Innovative Stamp Creations. The card stock I used is from Stampin' Up! - Chocolate Chip and So Saffron.

If you have any questions about this tutorial or you'd like a PDF of this tutorial please email me.

Just incase blogger decides to act up, I'm going to apologize in advance for any extra large gaps in spacing while you view this tutorial.


4"x 4" Bind It All Flip Book Tutorial
By: Lisa Somerville


Card stock/Designer Series Paper (DSP)
3 pieces of card stock 8” x 3 ¾” - score 2” from each 8” edge
4 pieces of 4” x 4” DSP for covers
10 pieces of 3 ½” x 1 ¾” DSP
4 pieces of 3 ¾” x 3 ½” DSP or card stock

Glue Stick
Bind It All
BIA Coil – I used ½” - although the ¾” would work
Mono Adhesive Tape or Sticky Strip
Bone Folder
2 – 4” Chipboard Covers

Cover your 4” chipboard front and back using glue stick and the pieces of 4”x 4” DSP – set aside. (If desired you can sand the edges with a sanding block and add ink with a sponge dauber)

Using the following diagrams place your DSP pieces onto your 4” and 2” panels of card stock

Inside view of page 1

Backside view of page 1 (the 4" panel is what will be facing you when your book is bound)

Inside view of page 2

Backside view of page 2

Inside view of page 3

Backside view of page 3

Now you’re ready to use your Bind It All to punch your pages

Set your Bind It All to “C” (cover) and punch your front and back covers

Set your Bind It All to “D” (inner pages) and punch your inner pages as shown (it may help to refer to the photos above as to where the DSP was placed)

Fold in one of the 2” flaps on page 1 – insert into your Bind It All and punch

Fold in the 2” flap on page 2 (that does NOT have DSP on both sides) – insert into your Bind It All and punch

Fold in one of the 2” flaps on page 3 – insert into your Bind It All and punch

Now you are going to attached your pages together as follows

Lay pages 1 and 2 down – front view up. Adhere tape to the right 2” panel on page 1 and adhere it to the left 2” panel on page 2 (making sure to line it up with the punches from the Bind It All)

This is a view of page 1 after it’s been attached to page 2

Lay page 2 down so that you are working on the back of the 4” panel, add tape and adhere it to the back 4” back panel of page 3 (making sure to line it up with the punches from the Bind It All)

This is a view of all pages when taped together

Now you are ready to add the coil to your book

Assemble in order from left to right

Back cover, front cover, and pages (note the 2” panels from page 3 are on the top). Slide in the double OWire binding.

Adjust the micro variable knob to the size wire you are using, place the book into the wire closing channel, bring down the handle and release.
