I am using the Penelope WYW Kit (G1106) to create some little albums out of 4x6" Flip Flaps (Z4114). The pack of 15 Flip Flaps is only $6.50 and I used 3 for each mini album. These albums are going to be given to my daughter's best friends who came to her birthday party. 
They will have a few photos of the day's festivities and are full of gorgeous colours! 
First I cut up the PML sheets from the Penelope Paper Pack. I trimmed the edges off this PML card and mounted it on a 4x6" mat of Thistle B&T with green on the back.
I chose a 3x4" PML card and trimmed it a little before mounting it on the green mat. I stamped on a scrap of White Daisy the Wish (M1051) sentiment. Only $5!

The next mat has Thistle on one side with a strip of yellow zip strip along the bottom edge. The back of this B&T is the colourful birds.
The right side is another 4x6 PML card.
The back is another mat cut from B&T yellow stripe with another zip strip along the top.
I went through and added a few stickers and vellum accents from the matching Complements.
Then I peeled the cover off the Flip Flaps and stuck them together one at a time. To cover the adhesive I added Silver Shimmer Trim and then used our Mini Stapler to attach some Thistle Twine. I then put another strip of Shimmer Trim on the back which also covered the two staples.
