Step 7
Decorate the last 3 ½" square to make the
front of the Jacob's Ladder, then tape down on
the last coaster.
Step 8
Flip the Book front over and peel off the three
Sticky Strips¯ liners from the center of the
coaster.
Line up the end of the ribbon pieces with the
end of the coasters. The middle ribbon will run
left, the top and bottom ribbons will run right.
Optional: Add additional adhesive in between
the ribbons for an extra strong hold.

Step 9
Take one of the coasters without Sticky Strip¯
and adhere covered side facing up. Press down
hard on top and bottom to make it stick.
Step 10
Take the ribbon and run it across the coaster
to the opposite side.
Step 11
Take a coaster with Sticky Strip¯, remove the
red liner and put face down on the coaster
sandwich. Make sure the ribbon underneath is
not twisted, or the ladder won't work later on.
Step 12
Pull ribbon tight and press down, running it to
the opposite side of the coaster again.

excess ribbon off at the end of the coaster.

Make a mini scrapbook
Add pictures after the Ladder is assembled, making sure the pictures are underneath the ribbon.
Try paint
Instead of patterned paper, try brushing acrylic paint on the edges of the coaster, and inside about 1".
Work it
Play with the finished Ladder! The more you make it work, the easier it will flip.
