Hello Mystical2018, sorry if that is a silly question, but could you describe what a flipbook is? I thought it was a small book and when you flip the pages it'll be a very short "film" (about 25 pages for one second), but with that definition the 3-page-minimum doesn't make any sense. Thank you in advance. :-)

@Stachel sorry for the confusion, thats what ive been told whats it called, dont know the actual name to it. you will put 3 envies together so it flips open one by one. You will glue the envies together. If you know the actual name please let me know lol

@Mystical2018 Oh that's fine. It's just that I'm new to this and I'm not a native English speaker and have to look up all those funny new terms. And flipbook just wasn't in this website's glossary. And then I tried google it, but it was rather confusing what was shown on all those images.. 🤷🏻‍♀️ Now I guess I've found it. Knowing that it was made with envelopes helped very much. And I found it as "envelope flipbook" or "flipbook made out of envelopes" mainly. So I guess your term was correct 👍🏻🙃

I found an easy tutorial on youtube "Flipbook using envelopes tutorial for happy mail or cards | dearjuliejulie" - just for anybody interested in this swap who has the same question 🤗👍🏻

Hi, can we do a Zine instead of the envie flipbook? My zines are usually small little paper books you can page through, but no "tuck ins" or envelope pockets. Aurora
