  1. Hello. I'm trying to make this and I'm having trouble when I get to the step where the pop up part attached to part C attaches to part B. Are you sure the measurements are right. I cannot understand how this fits together. If you could please explain in some more detail and perhaps show additional photos, it would be helpful. Also where is the pop up part and the slider parts? In your completed photos when open, I don't see either of these features. I don't see them on the outside cover either. I am unfortunately very confused. Thanks for the help. -Janet

    1. Hi Janet, the part C is the upper flap which is attached to the part B from the 1/2 inch side. The pop up part is attached to the inside of this flap. The slider part comes on the outer part of the left flap.
      Hope that works

  2. Also, is this 8" square when completed? It appears to me your measurements would make it 7 1/2 x 8.

  3. Hi, the finished album measures 8 x 7-1/2.
