Accordion Style Flipbook

I was due to post this yesterday but that didn't happen. ;) It's been super busy the past 3 weeks but hopefully things are calming down, at least for a while. This sweet flip book went to a dear friend of mine in Germany and she is an avid panda lover. It brightened her day which is the goal of all happy mail so I was tickled!

It is an accordion style flip book which I purchased some time ago and was in my stash begging to be altered. The base is black and I added designer paper mostly by Crate Paper to embellish. 

This is the first set of pages and I added pockets to stash some goodies in for her to use. On the left I gifted stickers and Heidi Swapp acetate words, on the right I gave her planner stickers and SMASH banners. 

On the left I created a pocket using a journal card and added a tag with a handwritten note. The right pocket holds 3D embellishments that she can use on future crafty projects.

The last set of pages has a pocket on left with Pink Paislee ephemera from a Paige Evans collection. The tissue paper on the right had multi colored flecks and reminded me of a unicorn so I jokingly told her it was unicorn tissue paper. She happens to love them and she loved this paper. :)
The panda images are from the web, I fussy cut each one and turned into a sticker using a Xyron machine. 

Under the unicorn tissue paper is a 4x6 journal card from a Simple Stories collection. 

I used MAMBI stickers to spell out a frequent greeting we exchange with each other. 

I love creating happy mail and flip books are one of my fave items to send. I have another flip book to share with you on Thursday so check back for that and tomorrow I'll be back with a design team project for ABC Christmas Challenge so see you then.

How fabulous to hear from you! I'm pretty bad myself at the moment... managing to post my deadline pieces, but not really being a very good blog visitor. I love this smart and chic flip book - great attention to detail as ever, and I'm sure your panda-loving friend will be very happy. Why not share it with us at Mini Album Makers? There's just a couple of days left til the end of the month's challenge...http://minialbummakers.blogspot.com/2018/06/june-mini-album-tutorials-and-challenge.html
