You will have 3 partners. To each of your partners send 4 (four) sticker bags. These can be "homers" (ones you send back to the sticker bag maker after you sign the last spot), starters or established bags. You can send upto 1 homer per swap partner. Please try not to send it to the maker of the bag. If at all possible try to not send it to people who have already signed it. If you have to send it to someone who has already signed it make sure there are at least 3 signers between when you send it back to them and when they last signed it (for example they were signer #1 and you're sending it to them as signer #5). This way they have a variety to choose from that are new to them as well. You will be sending a total of 12 (twelve) bags. These can be new or established bags.

Not sure what a sticker bag is? Well, neither was I! The internet proved to be basically NO! help-that's a first for a while LOL. So I did some serious searching of previous swaps here on swap-bot and found some pictures of some.

To make a sticker bag you get a envelope, put a note on it as to who made it, who it is for (if it's made for you and for you put made by and for and list your name.) the address and email of who it is for, your instructions and somewhere for the people to sign. This is alot more confusing than it sounds. I'll spell it out more with a example of what one would have on it in a second.

I handmake my envelopes out of scrap book paper so they are slightly smaller than a small envelope so that I can fit more than one into a small envelope. However, there are no set rules on the envelope size-there are even ones that are just normal envelopes with the name, rules, etc on them.

Here is the example of what to put on your envelope:

Made for and by:

First-name Last-name

Street address

City, state, zip


Please take # stickers and put in # stickers. After # signers please send home.

(Usually on back so people can have room.) Please sign and date. Please send home after # signers.

I then put lines for the people to sign.

The # are where you put how many stickers you want the other people to take out and put in. I usually put take out 5 stickers and put in 10. As for the amount of signers I like putting 6. Put as many as you want, as long as you realize that they need some room to sign. You can also add other rules. I usually say no reward stickers.

Please also make sure that you put at least the amount of stickers in it that you ask for them to take out. A good variety is nice too as people want to be able to pick something they like even if they're the first signer.

I tried to put a picture in above as an example and it really messed with the sites formatting lol.

Here is a picture of mine for an example:

I also usually have people put their labels in there too. Also, I've found that if you're using a super small envelope I do take 3 put in 5 so the bag doesn't get too full. Another tip, if you are having people put in 10 for example you should put 10 to start it off. If you're having people add 8, start with 8, etc etc. One last thing, I also put "no tiny or junk stickers" I've seen people be really stingy with what they add to sticker bags.

Good tips. I like sending mine out with some decent sized stickers to start with (if I can :) so mine arent always tiny either.

I also like to do special edition ones where stickers are a certain size, theme, etc. :)
