Every Wednesday on the forums the Creative Team and I share with you something cool and unique for you to learn, create and inspire. This week its my turn and I share the Flip Card Book that I designed.
I have been asked several times to share the template or the tutorial for my Flip Book Cards and have yes'd you all until now. I will design - create a template - do the project and throw the template out - done ... never to be seen again . So it being my turn to do WCYDW I thought it was time I recreated it ... and after cutting at least 75 sheets of scrap paper and measuring and remeasuring I HAVE IT AGAIN ! Here you all go :

There is a lot of flips and turns and pages inside and I was surprised that it took double the time to create one compared to my mini albums - but boy they are really fun to make! More than likely will use up one 6x6 paper pack in its entirety. do not throw out any scraps until the book is done ... you will be surprised how those 1/2" strips will be handy when you are creating. I loved using the 6x6 paper packs because the designs are scaled, however on any fuzzy cutting sheets or embellishment 12 x 12 sheets of the same paper line I also used them to make envelopes, pockets and tags.
These make wonderful special moment gifts. "Just For You" Flip card book I filled the pockets and envelopes with sister sayings and birthday sentiments - since it was gifted to my sister for her birthday -
"A Moment in Time" was gifted to Shona for her 1/2 century old Birthday - and in hers quotes of friendship and birthday sentiments could be found in the envelopes, on the backside of tags and pockets. The sentiments I found on line and simply printed and cut on regular cardstock paper.. This was not designed to hold pictures - it was designed to be a super duper over the top card !
Enjoy and can not wait to see what you create !
