Flip Books with Heather – Beginner Level

Flip Books are a fun trend that is catching on like crazy!  These are fun, interactive books that you build with varying numbers of flips, flaps, folds & pockets.  This one is a beginner-level mini book that is easy & fun to do for any level crafter.  Heather will guide you through every step and you will be hooked!  We are planning to make this a regular series, with projects from beginner to advanced.  This is great one to start with, featuring the beautiful “I Am” collection by Simple Stories.  Once you make this one, you can make others using any paper collection you like and add to it!
