I've been working on belly bands this week and I found some fun ideas. I think I even made up a new idea of my own: "The Belly Band Flip".
I wanted to make a belly band that was removable, so you can journal on the whole page. So I hinged the top and put a closure on the bottom. Here's my video about it if you are interested: Belly Band Flip
I learned about belly bands with a pocket in them from E at "Scrapbooking With Me" on YouTube. Here's a link to her video: Belly Band With Pocket and Jane from Inky Owl Studios taught me about belly bands using a window envelope. Her video is here: Window Envelope Belly Band
I combined their ideas with my flip and got this.
The pocket holds a removable journaling card. The closure is a circle with a hole in it and a diamond glued on top. You could also use turn mounts. Here is a link to purchase them. Turn Mounts
And the belly band flips so you can write on the whole page.
I made this belly band flip from a fragile old magazine page that I folded a bunch of times and sewed. Then I stamp embossed it.
Here it is stuffed with journaling cards.
And here it is flipped up.
Lastly, from Tiffany at Bluebird Lane Creations, I got the idea to make a belly band out of circles. Here is a link to her video: Circles Belly Band Of course, I had to add the flip.
I hope you got some good ideas from this post. Let me know what you come up with.
