What is your craft #4 - bookmark in your technique
Group:Gentle Hugs
Swap Coordinator:Irina (contact)
Swap categories: Bookmarks 
Number of people in swap:4
Type:Type 3: Package or craft
Last day to signup/drop:January 5, 2012
Date items must be sent by:February 16, 2012
Number of swap partners:3

You will have 3 partners. To each of them you will send 1 handmade bookmark and a short tutorial or a link to the tutorial. Because we all have (health) problems and you probably want to do other What-is-your-craft swaps too (I can recommend that), you will have enough time to make the bookmarks: 6 weeks.

There are a few rules:

  • the technique and material are senders choice. (The material can be for instance paper, plastic, ribbon, leather, fabric, thin wool. And you can use techniques like scrap booking, origami, embossing, drawing, painting, rubber stamping, carving, sewing, cross stitch, knitting or crochet. Or whatever you want.)
  • the colors you are going to use are profile based, if provided in the profile.
  • the bookmark doesn’t give an imprint in the book, so it has to have a rather flat surface. Don’t use paper clips.
  • the bookmark is rather thin.
  • let your partner learn from your bookmark: send a short tutorial written by you or send pictures of the process. Or send the link of the tutorial you used for your bookmark.

Here you will find many tutorials with several used techniques:

The bookmark on the picture is made of fabric and a tutorial can be found at Bits and Pieces

If you want to do something extra for your partners then it would be nice if the theme of the bookmark is profile based. But this is not a requirement for the swap and some techniques don't allow you to do so.

Have fun making the bookmarks and let us learn from each other. When you have received the bookmark, give a friendly comment and tell what you like about the bookmark.

The last day to signup/drop is set to January 5, because people are too busy during the Christmas period.

I am going to leave this swap to do when I return from surgery and rehab.If I happen to get International partners I'm sorry you will have lots of time to wait for them, but don't stop reading on my account, lol. It will give me something to work on while I am away.
