Flipbooks and Flowers

I've discovered a lovely young woman named Amber via Instagram, who organizes creative snailmail projects and exchanges on her website, Snail Mail Ideas. In January, she organized a "Flipbook" exchange that I participated in.

My flipbook was constructed with 6x6 sheets of patterned paper, washi tape, and loads of fun embellishments and interactive flaps and pockets for the recipient. The book also contained a letter to my friend, as well as little goodies and treats that were put in the envelopes.
For some reason, I didn't take enough photos, which was disappointing because it was a fun little project. If you are interested in exchanging Happy Mail with me, please contact me. I love sending and receiving creative mail!

I've also been busy making more paper flowers. This is an ongoing obsession, so you'll be seeing lots and lots of these making an appearance on my blog. I've been experimenting with different mediums and techniques.
I adore making these. It makes my heart happy!
