And now, here are the winning Flipnotes from last week's topic "Spaghetti".

Well done to everyone who entered.

Inspired by the classic scene from Disney's "Lady And The Tram”, Pow’s spaghetti slurping date comes to quite a different conclusion in this Topic winning Flipnote by LegacyH.

The animation brings to life both romance and rebuke with glistening love locked eyes, and a giant camera-shaking punch that sends the suitor flying.

It’s no wonder her name is Pow!

A good helping of spaghetti and meatballs gets dished up without the use of a plate in this Topic winning animation by Tequila☆.

The impact of the soft and tasty food is wonderfully executed with extreme flattening and spattering, as well as perfect movement spacing to register the sudden hit.

With a flamboyant meme style, and an explosive delivery, a profile character announces their favorite Italian food in this bowl tipping Topic winner by Gryphonite.

Check out that swirly spaghetti…….We must have some!

This steaming plateful of spaghetti ,drawn and FX animated by Lime!/ライム! really made our mouths water.


This Weeks Topic - "The Treasure Chest"

A treasure chest is a large wooden box filled with gold, silver, and jewels.

In popular culture they can be found, buried underground, lost in sunken ships, or hidden away in deep caves, and are often quested for by all manner of treasure hunters such as pirates, adventurers, and fantasy characters.

For your Topic Flipnotes, create any kind of treasure chest you like;

Traditional, imaginary, figurative, or one especially of your own design.

Make them as simple or outlandish as you wish, and fill them with whatever precious treasure you desire.

Then bury them away, or display them for all to see.

The choice of riches is yours!

Here’s a link to a video on how to draw a nice looking treasure chest if you want some inspiration:

We really love the way you're all so creative with these topics and look forward to seeing the Flipnotes you create for them.

Make sure to post your entries to the Weekly Topic channel Weekly Topic - The Treasure Chest and the deadline for your entries is March 31st (12pm EST / 4pm GMT).

We would also encourage you to add a description to your Flipnotes. This is your opportunity to explain any points of interest and specific details that we could feature in the topic winner reviews.

And don't forget, if you want a cool thumbnail picture on your Flipnote, whichever frame you save the Flipnote on, that will become the thumbnail. So choose your favorite frame for this, or add in a cool title page at the end, and save on that.

Keep on Flipnoting and the best of luck with your entries.
