Flip Book

Sorry I've been absent. I've had a migraine and sick kids for days. I just started to get a bit of relief from the headache this evening. I was hoping to blog something fun for April Fool's Day, but with the migraine, I was too sick to care. (sorry). Instead, I will say a quick happy birthday to my cousin Diana, who is an April Fool's baby. Happy Birthday, Diana!

Today I thought I'd share some pictures of the very first flip book I made. This one was for a class at BSS. It's just about done running, so I figure it's safe to share the pictures here now.

This is the front cover. The patterned paper was so pretty, I didn't really feel it needed anything else. All the patterned paper and the clear acetate overlays are from My Mind's Eye.

This next picture is the inside of the front cover, and the facing page. The felt flower trim is available at Buffalo Stamps n' Stuff- It is Queen & Co's Felt Fusion in floral white. It is self adhesive, which I loved. I think journaling in a white gel pen on the lower half of the right hand page would look cool.

This is the book fully opened to the middle, with the flaps opened out.

Left side flaps closed.

Right side flaps closed.

Inside of the back cover and the facing page.

Outside of the back cover. it folds completely into the book, so I figured it should be embellished. When the book is closed, the outside of the very center page turns into the actual back cover, and that one is blank. Sorry for the lousy picture, but you get the idea.

Here's a top view of the whole thing:

I'm glad I got to share something with you today-hope you liked it!

I just got some new SU! stuff to play with, so for all of you SU! stampers, I'll have some Stampin' Up! love for you tomorrow. See you soon~
