I am sure many of you have been making "flip books", but I thought that I would put together a brief photo tutorial just in case someone was wanting some help. After this, if you have been hesitant, you will be off and running (with your "petticoat 6 inches in mud!" P& P chapter 8) ! In this post, we will be just developing the "skeleton" of our Flip Book.
To make things simple...I use 12 inch X 12 inch paper.
Fold in half.
Please disregard the horizontal crease you see here....it is a total boo boo! Cut your paper in half (without the added crease)
You will now have two halves of your paper. Divide evenly into thirds. Mark off 4 inches and 8 inches.
Crease along those two markings as shown.
I do several at a time.
If you want the inside of your flip book to be "lined" , you need to glue a piece (I used a contrasting paper) the same size to your other piece.
It might need a tiny bit of adjustment, trim here and there as needed.
I made 4 flip book "skeletons ". They will be ready to add pages to, and embellish when I am ready to sit down and write a letter.
We will explore the completed flip book in my next post! Have you sent any flip books lately? It's a great way to send little goodies to your pen friend.
