Question: what’s smaller than a smartphone, just as portable, and can capture phone numbers, your thoughts, and pretty much anything else—but doesn’t have a battery? Hint: think old skool. Answer: these fun little flipbooks.
Only three materials (a small piece of leather, some paper, and upholstery thread) and a handful of tools (many of which you most likely already have) are needed to make one of these little guys. The flipbooks were created by Michelle Chen and you can download instructions on how to make them here. Michelle is just one of the 22 designers who contributed project ideas and tips for making 34 tiny books designs that you can find in Making Mini Books.
