Description:

For this swap you will take 5 envelopes and make them into a flip book for one partner.

Once the flip book is put together you will then decorate it fully as well as fill the pockets with items from your stash that your partner will like. CHECK YOUR PARTNERS PROFILE FOR DECORATING AND FILLING IDEAS.

**** You can decorate however you like. Use paint, stamps, paper, embellishments whatever you want to use to make it beautiful for your partner.

**** Ideas of what to fit into the pockets; stationery, paper ephemera, vintage ephemera, paper clips, small snacks/tea, washi tape samples, stickers, embellishments, ATC's, handmade items, smash supplies, pretty magazine cut outs, quotes, questions/lists, small images/photographs, quotes, twine/ribbon, beads, pretty paper scraps/paper bits, card supplies, craft supplies, tags, doilies, rubber stamped images, etc... Ideas are endless.

EDIT ADDED 4/6 .............. DON'T USE STAPLES OR CLEAR TAPE THAT YOU CAN SEE WHEN DECORATING AS THE GIRL IN THE VIDEO DOES. It unattractive and messy looking. And if your partner does this then rate them a 3 for not following swap rules............

Below is a tutorial for how to make a flip book for anyone that doesn't know how to make envelope flip books........

Can you verify envelope size. I make a lot of cards, so I wondered if those were okay, or should I use the large card envelopes for this swap.

I am so interested in doing one of these! They are so neat! If I do this it will be my first! I have done lots of pocket letters and this is a step up from the pls. I watched the you tube video...it looks easy enough. I just got cold feet I guess☺️!

Question - what envelopes would be appropriate and what size?

LunaMoody 04/ 2/2016 #

Hi Snailmail and Ganell

The size of envelope you use can be up to you but please no smaller then 3 1/2 by 6 1/2. Also all envelopes used need to be the same size. You can make the envelopes yourself if you like or use ones you already have. As long as the book is done in the same method it is done in the video.

Imtried watching that videao, and I gotta say, she is so all over the place, I don't understand what she is doing! Why must it be that method?! I have found other sites that give a FAR better actual step by step way of making these, that makes far more sense for people that want to try this.

@plushiecat I was thinking the same thing. I have a lot of homemade envies, but trying to follow along with her was impossible!

plushiecat 04/ 4/2016 #

There are other videos that are more helpful, and i think if we can still make what is wanted cuz it sounds cool, i think/hope it will ne okay.

I agree that she bounces around a lot... the other difference between what she does and what I have done is fill the pockets with surprises. I guess everyone has their own way... that's a good thing though! For this particular example it was too much decoration for me personally. Everything came from a "collection"... I'd rather see some artistic elements rather than select and glue.

plushiecat 04/ 6/2016 #

@pkpeace I can see both ways. Maybe the person (or her) was really into Disney, so a thematic book was appropriate. I kinda liked it because I am a huge Disney fan. That wasn't my issue. :) I liked all the decoration, and will prolly embellish mine well, depending on the recipient. :) What I may do, is decorate each envelope dependent on what goes in it. (say she likes cats, Disney, outdoorsy stuff...i'd decorate the envelopes one per theme, and stuff accordingly) :)

Hi.....The video link I provided was just for an example of how to make an envelope book for anyone who never has before. If you want to use a different method that is fine. If you have links to other videos please share them with us. As for the decorating of the book as stated in the listing you can use whatever you like on it. You can use a theme or do each envelope different. I want everyone to have fun making these. So use your imagination an run wild with it. And no you don't have to go overboard on it like she does in the video.

LunaMoody 04/ 6/2016 #

I actually DON'T like how she decorated it at all. The staples and how she uses clear tape is cheap and tacky looking. I'm adding a note into the listing NOT to do that.
