Good Mail Yay!



Recently Mrs. Duffy was talking about the magical power of mail to elevate your mood. I've always been a firm believer in this and then I received this “pull” flip book in the post and my beliefs were reaffirmed. I've never seen a flip book like this before so the wonder of exploring it equaled the thrill in receiving it. This was a book I received from a swap I participated in on Swap-Bot. I hope my partner was as excited to receive the book I made her as I was to receive my swap from Sisi in The Netherlands.



I didn't quite know what to expect when I untied the string holding it closed, but when I unfolded the flaps, I was enchanted by what lay inside. There was a little tab at the end that said “pull” and when I did, the pages cleverly opened one by one showing the goodness inside.







 To say I was pleased with this swap is a gross understatement! I think Sisi outdid herself on this swap and I am so happy I was the recipient.

  2. It was such a wonderful thing to unwrap. I wish I could show how the pages magically open when you pull the tab. I love everything about this book!

  6. When I opened this flip book, I didn't really know what to expect. I'm still examining it and admiring it. It's very ingenious how it unfolds and I want to figure it out so I can make one too!
