This is the first round of a minizine project that'll, I hope so, include as many issues as long as people will participate. The project is inspired by The Scribble Project, and the idea is to see how people are changing the same sheet in their own way. We'll do the same, except the final project will be a super cool minizine. You'll see, it's pretty simple.
Step 1) Download the template (ISSUE 1) on the swap homepage (or copy this link in your browser --> http://pumpkin66.webs.com/fillit_issue1.PDF).
Step 2) Print it. It will directly fit to letter size : 8.5 x 11 inches.
Step 3) Doddle/draw/illustrate the sheet in your own way, following the guidelines. You can also write on it, embellish the frame, add colors... whatever you want to personalize your issue.
Step 4) Put the original in the copy machine and print as many copies as you want (at least 5 because you'll have 5 partners).
Step 5) Fold the minizines according to this tutorial.
Step 6) Send one copy to each of your partners!
Your zine will be directly in 1/8 format, with 8 pages including the front and back covers. You are more than welcome to embellish the front and back covers as well. You can flickr or google "mini-zine" to have some pictures/inspirations :)
You'll have five (5) partners and this swap is international because of the lightweight of the zine who'll fit in a normal sized envelop. Plus, more partners = more zines = more fun!
Beginners and long-time zinesters are welcome to joint, as long as newbies with completed profile. Other swappers must have a 4.9+ rating to participate. I'll angel if needed but please no flakers! I reserve the right to ban any suspicious swappers before assigning partners.
If you have any question, feel free to PM me and/or visit the swap homepage on my blog!
Have fun everyone!
