Hi there! Ive been on a flip-book binge and wanted to host a swap because I've been craving to swap more! If you are unfamiliar with flip books, a few examples can be found below. This is my first time hosting a swap so please be patient! If you have any suggestions I'd be glad to oblige.

Description taken from a flip book swap hosted by nightreverie: "What is a 'flip-book'?

This is more than your average letter!

(other names for them are booklets or folders but I think flip-book is the most popular name for them at the moment...)

They are either a large sheet of paper folded in half, into 3 pages or however many times you can without it being too small, or pages stuck together with tape so you can have multiple pages.

They contain a letter (either in a pocket or tucked in creatively somewhere), pockets, decoration, and goodies for your pen-pals.

They are usually over 5 by 5 inches (when closed) but other than that sizing is usually up to the person creating it - as long as it is not to small and not too big. They also don't have to be the same size length and height.

Emphasis on the 'decorated'. It can't be just folded patterned paper. Please put your heart into it! รขโ„ขยฅ"




you can use premade deco papers or watercolor/paint your own like in the last video. the purpose of a flip-book is so that your partner can "flip" through the pages to find all the goodies! Your flip book must be at least 2 pages. Send something you would be DELIGHTED to receive. I'll give plenty of time so that you can make it extra special.

Please Include: A short note describing your week, your weekend, a little about you, just something pleasant. A paragraph or two will suffice. Group name, swap name, username At least 5 different craft supplies/handmade art goodies to gift to your partner.

Some ideas for gifts/decoration are: Brads Tea Seed packets (keep in mind some of us live in apartments so seeds for potted plants/herbs are usually a safe bet!) Tags Deco paper (no smaller than ATC size) Ephemera mini envelopes Magazine/book clippings Stickers Washi Samples An ATC, zine, or little drawing by you Pressed flowers Fancy Paper Clips Add a belly band Sticky notes

Check profiles if you wanna send something extra special, but ultimately theme is senders choice, so you can start before partners are assigned if you'd like.

Some examples of a flip-book ive made (sorry for bad quality, my phone camera sucks).

FLIP BOOKS! My new favorite thing! I needed an excuse to make a 3rd one ^^

A funny note, I joined and accidentally hit the back button, swap bot said I could not join more then once. I laughed because I would if that were an option.

@angeliclizard - if you wanna make a 4th and do a private swap with me let me know!!! I'm addicted!!!!! If everyone has fun with this one I'll host another in June as well.

I thought this was USA so may drop it cause postage would be to much for international.

Moonbrat 04/30/2016 #

I can change to USA, but can host an international one seperately

@Moonbrat I would love to do a another one! I am currently working on a mini flip-book (3x3" pages) but it is still four pages. So much fun!
