Flip books

I am posting the directions for the Flip books. I found them on the 2 peas site from Fuggles. She closes hers a little different. Good Luck.

(They are tons of fun to make.)

From Fuggles post:

I'll try to be more specific for any peas that would like to try it. Here is a list of what you'll need: 3 pieces of cardstock cut to 6x12 1 piece of patterned paper or cardstock cut to 6 x 11 5 pieces of patterned paper approx 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 8 pieces of patterned paper cut approx 5 1/2 x 2 1/2 2 pieces of patterned paper or cardstock cut to 6 x 1/2" 2 pieces of ribbon approx. 18" 4 eyelets Score the cardstock at 3" and 9". Fold and use a popcicle stick to flatten the folds. Glue the 3" flaps together so all 3 pieces of cardstock are attached to each other. Adhere your patterned paper to the book. Punch holes in the 6 x 1/2" piece of cardstock/paper about 1/2" in apart in the middle of the paper. Thread your ribbon through the holes. Adhere these papers to the ends of the 6x11 paper. This is the part that wraps around the closed book. Close up the book and lay it face down. Line up the center of that 6x11 piece of paper with the center of the back of the book and adhere. Then wrap the corners around the front of the book and use your popcicle stick to flatten the folds. Don't adhere the flaps. That's it.
