This is Flippin' Fun!

I sure hope you aren't tired of seeing flip books, because I love making them and I have to make a bunch for the June Hostess Appreciation Pajamarama. Plus making a flip book will be one of the classes I'm teaching in June, so even non-hostesses could learn how to make them (thought they wold not get a free hostess appreciation flip book).

I decided that each attendant at the Pajamarama will receive a free flip book, and I will try to make them each different. To accomplish this I dug into my stash of decorative papers, to see what would go together well enough to allow me to create yet another unique book.

I decided my first book would be made with the double sided paper from this year's holiday mini. I really loved this paper, but found that I hoarded almost all of it, which would have been completely pointless except that by hoarding I made sure I have to create this project.

The project is not quite finished -- I still haven't decided whether to use a winter sentiment or not to use sentiments at all and just decorate it with a o photo, so in the end I decided to go sans decorations. I still like the way it turned out, with the one corner of the designer paper turned up so both sides of the paper are visible.

I really had a blast making this book and can't wait which one of my hostesses will select this book as her hostess appreciation gift. I guess I just have to wait until the end of June to see.

Tomorrow I will go back to cards -- maybe even another challenge card. Talk to you then!
