Envelope Flip-books

     Hey everyone!

     Remember how a while back I posted about my failed envelope flip-book attempt? Well, I’m back with another one and I’m happy to say that this one actually worked out – yes, I measured things properly this time so it actually folds up!

     See? It folds up! I’m really happy with my little flip book. It’s super cute, if I dare say so myself. I mean, how could it not be cute considering I used the Little Meow Papermania range? Cute kittens are, well, cute!

     I actually sent this to Myra from Those Secrets We Keep (hope it got to her safely!). I was wondering what to do with this flip-book for a bit but it seemed obvious to send it to Myra considered I learned how to make the flip-book from MayMay Made It over on YouTube and Myra actually introduced me to her videos.

     I’ll post a bunch of pictures of the flip-book at the end of this post but it might be easier to understand it if you watch this video I made of opening it, it gives a much better understanding of all the things that flip:

      I also have a few other quick flip-books to show you today, these are ones I made super quickly just using some journaling cards and washi tape. Here’s the first one I made:

     The front and back, the covers, are made using 6×4 journal cards and then the 3×4 ones are stuck inside and flip open, either for you to journal on or stick small pictures in. Like I said, these are super quick to make but they can look pretty cute and are a great use for journal cards you have lying around! I made a few of these style flip-books to send to pen pals because they’re small and light so you can easily pop them in an envelope and not have to worry about bulk.

     Here’s another one I made with a travel theme:

     I got a little bit more elaborate with this, using two more 6×4 journal cards on the inside to make a pocket to store some pictures or mementoes from a trip!

      And as promised, here’s the bunch of pictures from the envelope flip-book:

      Well, I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing these! Let me know what you think of them and feel free to share some links to any flip-books you’ve made. I love seeing what others are making!

  1. OMG..love it! You are amazing!
    Now I must get my craft on!
    I’m glad you have found fun you tube channels to watch. I spend way to much time watching them and then not being able to make the project as fast as they do.
    You’re the best!

  2. I don’t think I have seen one of these before but I love the idea of them and yours is adorable. Why is it that we find all the little pockets, flaps and tags so pleasing?! Beautiful make.

    1. Thanks! There’s just something lovely about things you can flip over and open up, isn’t there? Things like that really give a whole extra dimension to a project – reminds me of toys that you get for small kids that have different textures and shapes which they can’t help butmess around with. Crafting – toys for grown ups xD

    1. Thanks! Making the base for envelope flip book itself didn’t too long at all because I used the envelope punch board so that part only took a few minutes. Decorating it though took me at least two hours though! I’m just really slow at decorating xD
