Stack the Deck or Hidden Hinge

Mini albums are just so addictive, aren't they?

The two most popular on YouTube seem to be Kathy Orta King's 'Hidden Hinge' binding system (please note that Kathy did NOT create this binding system however she did adapt it for mini albums) and Laura Denison's 'Stack the Deck' binding system.

Both of these binding systems are strong and effective, however I prefer Kathy's 'Hidden Hinge' system except for one thing! I could NEVER get the 'flaps' of the binding to sit nicely and inconspicuously on the inside covers. So I came up with the STACKED HINGE binding system.

It's pretty much the same as Kathy's 'hidden hinge' but the flaps are hidden underneath the binding hinges and has a much neater look and feel to the completed albums.

Try it out and see how you like it!

I have included the links here because there are a lot of Ustream links to recordings I have made with the stacked hinge binding system which have since been removed by Ustream because of the age of the videos. So here are the links to the Stacked Hinge Binding System for you:
