Flash Card Scrapbook Pages

A large, beautifully illustrated flash card makes a great scrapbook page. It’s also quick and simple.

The flash cards I’ve used are K&Company 5×7 Actopus to Zelephant, available on the company’s website here and on Amazon here. Pretty Little Studio has 5×7 flash cards as well.

Here’s how I made the card into a scrapbook page:

First, I printed journaling on cardstock, trimmed it to 5×7 and used a corner rounding punch so that it matched the card.

With the flash card and journaling back-to-back, I punched holes to fit in my album (I use a 3-hole punch aligned to the small album size, but a hand-held hole punch works fine, too).

Then I sewed around the edge using a zig-zag stitch, being careful around the tricky rounded corners.

I tied the end threads. Not fancy, but very easy.

All finished!

More flash card page ideas:

  • Add a small photo or stickers to the front of the card.
  • Use a photo along with journaling.
  • Instead of punching holes and sewing around the edge, place the card in a 5.5×8.5″ page protector (which will need to be sewn and trimmed to avoid the card sliding around).
  • Use the entire flash card set and make an album.

Have fun!
