Remove the backing from one of the magnet sides and adhere it on the inside front flap.

Remove the backing from the other side of the magnet, close the front flap down onto the front of the album and press down well to secure.

Adhere the inside flap and front panels over the magnets.

Adhere the paper panels to each of the ‘pages’ and flip pages.

Adhere the paper strips into spines.

Adhere the back panel.

Apply adhesive to one half of the oval and adhere to the front flap, centered over the whole front.
