Flip Notes, You're Gonna Want One!




Welcome Spring Flingers! The secret to Success is support!

Have you ever see a product and thought, "Gee, why didn't I think of that?" Well, that was my first thought when I opened my Flip Note and saw how durable and well constructed this product is. It's a notepad and pen in a gorgeous, metal case that fits in any purse or bag. I will be forever thankful to FlipNoteFan for sending me a Flip Note to try, as well as two to giveaway.

Flip Notes are Wellspring's best seller and are available in over 30 chic designs. There's one for every taste, but if you ask me everyone needs three or four to mix and match with different purses. Here's what Wellspring has to say about the Flip Note: "Flip Notes are perfect for notes on-the-go as they fit snugly inside pockets, purses, or briefcases! Flip Notes make perfect gifts for loved ones, teachers, hosts & coworkers. Each Flip Note features a stylish debossed metal spring-loaded case with a blank white note pad and retractable pen."

I carry my Flip Note everywhere, switching it from purse to tote to diaper bag. Its hard case makes it durable, while protecting the note pad inside. I love that I can jot down notes or lists, and the edges of the paper don't get torn, smudged, or frayed. And get this, the pen that comes with the Flip Note holds the entire case shut. You can never lose the pen because it's always right there, connected to the paper. No more digging and searching in your purse or bag for a pen! How great is that! Not that it needs more selling points, but the Flip Note is also far superior to other notepads because the hard case supports the notepad, making it easy to write on. No more floppy, flimsy notepads for me! So if you have an occasion coming up that requires a unique and lovely gift for a special woman, or you just want to treat yourself, you can't go wrong with a Flip Note. Don't forget to order refill pads and pens. And did you know that a Flip Note appeared on two episodes of Ugly Betty?

I have 2 Flip Notes (pictured above) to giveaway to a couple of lucky readers. Here's how to enter:

* For your first, required entry visit the Wellspring website and leave me a comment telling me your favorite flip note design (other than the ones offered in the giveaway) or mention another favorite product they offer. You absolutely must visit the site or no entry!

To earn extra entries you may do one or more of the following and leave me additional comments here telling me which you have done:

I need a flip note because I always carry sticky note pads in my purse, and they fall apart and lose their sticky-ness from bouncing around inside my purse. :(

I need a Flip Note because for me, if it's not written down it's not true. I'm a compulsive note-taker and list-maker. I love that this product has a hard cover and fits conveniently in my purse.

I really like the ruby flip note - it'd be easy to find in the caverns of my purse! :)

Aleda said...

I need a flip note for probably the same reason most people do - whether I'm carrying my purse or laptop bag, any pad of paper just dissolves from being shoved around. I actually have a vinyl one from my bank right now, but even that's starting to give up the ghost!

NimrodVern said...

I need a Flip Note to keep track of random thoughts... like questions for the pediatrician... I have a whole bunch of things I'd like to discuss, yet when I get there, somehow my brain is wiped clean of meaningful thought.

Jodi said...

I really like the Flip Notes Plum Wren design. Really cute! These are such a great idea. thanks for the giveaway!

Jodi said...

I'm always looking for something to write on while I'm out and notepads just get messed up being in my purse. Having a great durable case like this would really make things easier. Thanks for the chance to win!

I think these are darling and I would love to have one. I'm always writing to-do lists and these are just the right size for my purse. I love all the black and white designs, but I also love the pink and green argyle. I want some scrapbook paper in those colors!

I love the flip notes in the plum wren design.

Superjaxster said...

I need a flip note because my FIL is unable to speak (stroke) and when we go out he likes to draw to communicate. He has some little notebooks he carries in his pocket, but often forgets to bring them. So it would be great to have pen and paper ready.

The BLANC NOIR COLLECTION DAMASK Flip Notes is SO ME. I'm a little OCD about writing lists (I'm very forgetful, & they keep me on track), so the flip notes would be a perfect addition to my pocketbook.
