Update #2! Apparently the links I posted above were changed to private. But I have something even better! My friend Cyndi went to the trouble of posting a very detailed tutorial for this album on her blog. You can find it here: Cyndi's File Folder Album Tutorial.
The pop-up mechanism was created with Karen Burniston's Sassy Label Pop 'n Cuts insert. I cut it from acetate and trimmed it down as far as I could without messing up the mechanism. Since these pages aren't very wide, I had to be really careful with where I adhered the pop-up elements. You definitely want to use temporary adhesive and test the placement when you're making one.
The bottles were all done a bit differently. The one on the left was cut from leftover packaging and inked with caramel and slate alcohol ink. I cut the same bottle from heavy chipboard and adhered the inked bottle to it. The label was stamped and adhered to the bottle. The center bottle was also cut from packaging. For this one, I sprayed the back with several coats of Krylon mirror paint and then inked the front with a bit of alcohol ink, giving it a little faux mercury glass look. I adhered it to a chipboard bottle and added a Remnant Rub and some paper string. The last one was cut from heavy chipboard, given a coat of Rock Candy Crackle paint, then inked with Brushed Corduroy Distress Stain. I added a bit of the new Trimmings and one of the new idea-ology Crossbones Adornments.
To finish the page, I stamped a cobweb and added a die cut spider.
Whew! I hope you enjoyed this project. I had an absolute blast getting together with my friends and making it - you definitely need to grab a few buddies and do the same! I might be able to hire Cyndi out for the right price. ;-)
