I have made a file folder flipbook.  It was a very fun project that I made for a swap that I'm in.  I used a Heidi Swapp Color Magic file folder and Color Shine.  Too fun!! I've also included two shaker pages that flip.  I love how this came out!!  Lots of pictures :-)

Front cover of the flipbook.

It flips down.  Envelope created with Envelope Punch maker 3 1/8" x 4 1/8".
Flips to the left.

Front of the first shaker.  You Got This!

The back of the shaker.  I glued two cut aparts from the collection together and it's just floating in the shaker pouch with the sequins.  

Fold that back up and the next section flips down.

Top portion flips left.  Sorry for the glare on the shaker pocket.

Another shaker. (front)

Back of the shaker.  This one flips up. 

This opens and you can put journaling or photos.  I added a chain with some beads and charms to the bull nose clip.  This came out of the pocket in the left side of the flipbook.  Little Hot Tamale has a great, easy tutorial to create this flipbook.
