Make Your Own Flipbook

Flipbooks are more formally known as kineographs.

When making flipbooks, it's best to start with simple animations and work up to more complex ones.

If you think that art projects always require a ton of supplies, you're wrong. Check out how to make your own tiny movie - with little or no cost.

If you think that getting in touch with your crafty self has to involve a huge investment in sparkles, glue and sequins - think again! Some of the coolest art is the simplest. Here's a project that will release your inner artist with minimal fuss.

What You Need:

  • Pad of paper
  • Tape
  • Markers

Step by Step

1. Reinforce the top of your pad of paper with tape so the pages won't fall out with frequent flipping.
2. Decide what you want to draw and keep it simple so it's easier to animate. Draw your first picture on the last page of the booklet.
3. To make a picture look like it's moving, you have to make it move a little each time on each page. For example, if you want to draw a stick man walking across the page, start with the figure standing legs together. In the next frame, move one leg forward a little. Keep moving the legs slowly back and forth - and the figure forwards.
4. Flip the book from back to front and - tada!- you're an animator!

  • If this craft is too low-tech for you - or if you're, like, allergic to paper - make your own online flipbook at www.benettonplay.com.

Look. Through my experience(s), I think if you want to be with a girl you have feelings for, get to know them inside out. Approach them, talk to them as you would to any person. Go on to being friends, and from there, you're on your own. Your actions, your manner and your representation will define you. There is no way you can make a girl fall 'head over heels' for you if you want to be arrogant. Friendships I feel are the key starting points where you can develop. A girl wants a guy she can care for, someone who's trustworthy and kind, and personality. I'm not a girl, and I'm sure that I've missed some aspects of what girls want in a guy. I'm in a relationship at the moment. I'm just sharing my view. Be honest. Be truthful. Tell her how you feel. Get to know her. And, well, it's up to you to make it happen.
