And now, here are the winning Flipnotes from last week's topic "SnowFlakes". Well done to everybody who entered.
The beauty of falling snowflakes evokes memories of simpler times, for two sisters together in the snow, in our first Topic selection this week, by jacob.
Wonderfully drawn and animated to a haunting melody, with accompanying written dialogue, this Flipnote tells of the unspoken bond between siblings that can stand the test of time.
It brought a tear to our eye.
Although melted snow is not considered healthy to drink in large amounts, our next entry has come up with another, more bizarre reason to beware.
Watch in astonishment as a single snowflake effects an instant freeze on a thirsty fellow, in our next rib-tickling weekly topic winner by ツemmaツ.
In this topic winner, by Jake Wacky crafts a paper snowflake on a snowy day. And who would guess that his neighbour Phillip’s brand new window would, once again, be on its receiving end!
In fact, this hilarious running comedy theme really got us thinking.
What if Wacky started a window fixing business.
He could make an absolute fortune!
This winning topic Flipnote by, Jon features a terrific snow blizzard composed of detailed crystalline snowflakes, and a friendly looking snowman.
We were very impressed by the use of perspective here;
Different sizes of snowflake, falling at varying speeds, creates a great sense of depth within the animation, as well as illustrating the complexity of the snowflake structure.
A splendid job!
★Adison★ has a disturbing encounter with a self conscious snowflake, in our next ice-cold topic winning selection.
We’ll certainly think twice before making remarks about snow ever again!
We would never have guessed it could be so tetchy!
This delightfully tuneful, wintery Flipnote, by StickmanⓁⓇ includes hand drawn snowflakes, as well as the creator’s profile character and his home.
What a lovely looking place it is.
If it gets chilly, he can always pop in for a nice cup of hot chocolate.
Ding-dong merrily on hi guys!
It’s Christmas time again!
Santa will be making his annual visit, to leave presents under your Christmas tree.
We’ll all be enjoying Christmas dinners including turkey, goose, ham and nut roasts, if you're a vegetarian.
Not to mention pulling crackers, Carole singing, gift giving, hanging tinsel and decorations, and whatever other seasonal traditions you and yours indulge in at this magical time of year.
Your Flipnotes could be about any aspect of Christmas you choose. But why not make it about your particular favorite.
We’ve got our paper hats and party whistles at the ready, and are full of the spirit of Christmas.
Why not make our day even more joyful with a Flipnote for this festive time of year.
Have a holly jolly time everyone. And don't eat too much turkey!
We really love the way you're all so creative with these topics and look forward to seeing the Flipnotes you create for them.
