A Day of Flappy Ideas

Hmmm. Have I revealed this yet?

I am a teacher.

An excessively bookworm-y teacher.  Books were my first love as a kid, and now I’ve become a teacher who loves introducing classic, innovative, and/or hilarious books to my kids.  I also love making books with my students. Flap books, lap books, accordion books, tab books, shape books…they are so fun to create, and they can be a keepsake of a unit of study!

I’ve assembled hundreds of them, so I wonder, what would be 200 more?  Only these 200 books would be used for our wedding!  Here are some book-like invitations from Zenadia Design that I admire:

Top Secret?  I'd be so excited to read it!

Probably once a week, I dream about recreating the following invitation book.

The response card is the last (and perforated) page.

The response card is the last page. See the perforation? It's all so perfect.

The booklets below are wedding programs!  I’m planning to make booklets like these, but blank inside, as end-of-the-year gifts for my students.  Maybe I’ll make a few hundred extra for the wedding. 🙂

Simple and sweet!
