2016 Fall Happy Mail #3

2016 Fall Happy Mail #3 Front
 This is the third Fall Flip Book I sent out.

The cardstock I used for the base was Momenta Songbird. It is single sided so I glued the pieces together in offset strips. The book is about 6 inches tall by 4.5 inches wide.

On this folder I tried different closures all unsatisfactory. I finally settled on tying the string with the dangling heart to the string with the jewelry closure that was supposed to link through the other half of the jewelry closure that I had glued to the flap. Hopefully that made some sense. The tag I clipped to the front had the recipients name on it. Each tag is the same width, but they are all different lengths. For the title, "Happy Fall", I used the Sizzix Sizzlits Graffiti font and glued the letters to an outlined Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels Seventeen. The leaves are the Spellbinders Die D-Lites Leaves 2, the acorn is a Sizzlits Die, and the Owl is from Simply Cards and Papercraft Issue 145.  Note: the die with the magazine was supposed to be champagne glasses, but instead was this owl. I bought the magazine because I really liked the owl and was quite surprised to find greeting cards with champagne glasses in the use your free gift section.

On the first page, the jar is a removable shaker and the purple cat is a set of page flags. The small funny faces flap lifts and there is a removable pieced camera. Under the flap are quotes in a pocket and some quotes pasted down.

The Second flip has a pocket for the ATC quotes and on the flap is a quote. The clock, camera, and glasses are sticky notes from Daiso. Under the second flip flap are a set of ATCs fanned out with a paperclip.

The third flip has pockets on both pages. The one on the left holds ATCs and the one on the right has goodies: stickers, tags, elements, and diecut feathers.

On the back I used a bunch of ephemera, punches, Sizzix diecuts, and fussy cut bits and pieces.

Under all the removable elements is a glued down element. That way when all of the removable pieces are taken out, the book still looks complete.

Have a great day!
