Many people here on swap-bot like Alice in Wonderland. So do I, it has been my favorite story ever since I was little. That's why I am hosting an Alice in Wonderland themed swap.

We will swap high quality handmade Alice themed items. You will have one partner. You can choose every type of craft that you like, as long as it is something you are good at. Please make something you are very proud of! Let's stick to the classic style, no Disney/Kawaii/Tim Burton please.

Examples you could make are (but please be creative and don't limit yourself to these!):

  • postcard + envelope

  • set of (at least) 3 ATC's

  • set of (at least) 2 tags

  • set of (at least) 3 beautiful envelopes

  • bag/purse

  • fabric garland

  • doll

  • handcarved stamp

  • jewelry

  • and many more, use your imagination!

Send handmade items only! Sender's choice, no requests. Quality is more important than quantity, but be thoughful and use the above list as a guideline. Don't send just one ATC. Please, pack your item nicely, since nothing is more delightful than receiving a beautifully wrapped package in your mailbox! Make your partner smile!


  • at least 20 type 3 swaps finished and rated for

  • minimum rating: 4,9

  • a well filled out profile

  • no recent 1's or 3's

  • I will ban suspicious swappers

If you want to be responsive to the wishes of your partner, look at the comments below. Not everybody likes ATC's for example. But it is sender's choice, so if you insist on making them, your partner can not give you a low rating.

If anything is not clear, please contact me or use the comment section below. Enjoy and happy swapping!

I love Alice!! I have some wonderful Alice items I have purchased from other Etsians.Would something like that-that someone else made-be acceptable? (Of course,it will be hard to part with any of it!)

Wennie 03/14/2012 #

Well, I would prefer everyone to make something themselves. But, yes, I think that would be acceptable. Especially when you put it in a handmade Alice themed box or envelope. Enjoy, be creative, think out of the box and make your partner happy, that's what it is about!

Why no Disney/Kawaii/Tim Burton, just out of curiosity? I adore Alice in Wonderland, but I'm not crazy about the original illustrations. I love the stuff that trends towards the darker whimsical Alice interpretations like Tim Burton's or American McGee's.

I dont mind making something Disney/Kawaii/Tim Burton as long as my partner makes me something thats not Disney/Kawaii/Tim Burton

Wennie 03/15/2012 #

I included that because I just don't really like those styles, and I've seen some people around who feel the same. So yeah, for this swap, no disney/kawaii/tim burton. Sorry! Also I can image it is more difficult and less fun to make something in a style you don't like yourself. It does not need to be exactly John Tenniel, but just keep the era the story originates from in mind.

How cool. Im in the middle of making an Alice in Wonderland themed something just to keep me busy so making another one for this swap will be awesome x

I just find it really strange that you would want to host a swap that was only about your personal likes. You end up forcing out a large group of people. To each their own, though. I'm sure there will be several who will enjoy this one.

@silverwing - I think there are more Alice-purists who like the original story/drawings better than the Disney or more recent versions.. (I, myself being one of them.. lol)

I think it's great that there are these boundaries on the swap, so that I don't receive something in a Disney-theme.. it's the main reason I joined in! (I love, love, love Alice, but would be a little disappointed if I received something with Johnny Depp on it, haha..)

I'd say: feel free to host a version that has no rules about which version to use ;)

Wennie 03/16/2012 #

Thanks for the clear explanation, Ivoryblossom, I have nothing to add to that! :-)

ivoryblossom 03/17/2012 #

perhaps a cup of tea :P

hey, I've just joined this swap... I'm a newbie just wanted to request an exeption as I lurve alice in wonderland :) PLEASE CAN I ENTRE THIS SWAP? thanks

MizzKodak 03/21/2012 #

is there any way that we can request no ATC's? I really dont want any ATCs since i have no need for them, but I dont mind making them if thats what my partner wanted.

MizzKodak 03/21/2012 #

Here is the link to another Alice swap I am hosting as part of the Alice group called Down The Rabbit Hole , the swap is really interesting, and its senders choice, come on over join our awesome group and swaps



ivoryblossom 03/22/2012 #

Ohhhh Wow, MizzKodak - that is just awesome!!!!

If my baby wasn't due any day now, I'd definitely join....! (but now I'm just scared she'll be here a few days early and I'll disappoint my swap partners.. lol) I did request an invite to join the group though!

p.s. If I may be picky, I'd like something else than an ATC too - but if you love making them, I'll rate you a 5 if you send me some nevertheless :)

Wennie 03/23/2012 #

ATC's are not my favorite either, but I presented it as an options so I want to give the possibility to make them. However, I adjusted the swap text a little, but it is still sender's choice. I don't want to complicate things so short before the sign up deadline.

MizzKodak 03/23/2012 #

@ivoryblossom thanks so much, congrats on the baby and I hope you join the Alice group!

ivoryblossom 03/23/2012 #

I did! :)

MizzKodak 03/23/2012 #

@Wennie thanks so much for the clarification =)
