A Lucky Parcel (and I wasn't even sure until a few days ago) is a smaillish parcel containing related items. In this case our Lucky Parcel Swap will be (of course) paper related items.

The container for this Lucky Parcel will be a handmade or store bought goodie bag about this size (think child's birthday party). You can google for a link, but I just kind of "winged" it and they are relatively easy.

This will be a fairly cheap swap, since everything will be flat and easy to mail. Please check your partners profile for dislikes.


Handmade or Store Bought "Lucky Parcel" Bag (see description above) and (to quote @Cajunhillbilly ) MUST MUST MUST contain at least 3 of the following:

  • 1 ATC made by you.

  • 2 ATCs not made by you (give credit to proper creator)

  • 1 bookmarker (store bought or hand made)

  • 1 full (profile based) sticker sheet

  • 3 store bought notecard/envies

  • 1 handcrafted notecard/envie

  • 5 plain undecorated tags

  • 2 decorated tags

  • 5 swap cards

  • 10 address labels

  • 30 tiny (1/2 - 1 1/2 inch) punchies (3 styles 10 each)

  • 5 med-small punchies 2 inches and up)

  • 3 handmade envies

  • 5 stamped images

  • 3 inchies (do not have to be created by you)

  • 2 store bought postcards

  • 1 hand crafted postcard

Note: It must be 3 different items listed above. In other words do not send 6 handmade envies thinking that will cover 2 items from the list. If you do this your partner will justifiably be able to rate you a 3 for not following swap requirments. (Of course you can always send more of an item just to be nice if you want, but it isn't required...well the being nice part is, but the sending extras isn't. :P)

If you are flaked on, please contact me ASAP as I ALWAYS angel my swaps, provided that you have rated your partner a 1. IF (for whatever reason) you choose not to rate, then I choose not to angel.

If you flake in this swap, you will never be allowed in any swaps I host, you will be removed from TPD, reported to FOPS and bamboo shoots will be hammered beneath your fingernails until you realize your mistake.

If you have any questions (including where I find my bamboo), please PM me as I don't check my swaps daily.

Just to get it clear, do we actually make the bag itself, or can we decorate (stamp, paint, etc.) a pre-made bag? I wasn't sure as the swap picture shows some cute little store-bought bags (I have the pink version)!

I never knew what a Lucky Parcel was - how fun!!

Paige1900 07/31/2012 #

I editted the swap so that if you would like to use store bought that is fine. I just like making them...I have made so many envies that I needed to try something else for a while and whilst I was piddling, I made some cute little bags like in the picture. : )

Could you tell me what the sizes of the bag is please? I dont want to send something too small!

Paige1900 08/ 1/2012 #

The reason I did not put a size on here is because it will depend on what you send. The bag is basically just the holder...as long as you meet the requirements of what is inside the bag you are meeting the requirements of the swap.

Example: Say I send the "3 inchies", the bookmarker, and 1 ATC I won't need a bag as big as someone who sends 3 handmade envies, 1 handcrafted post card, and 5 med/small punchies, but we have both met the requirements 100%

Does that help to explain it better? alt text

Ah cool. I have some 5 inch by 7 inch paper bags.

Paige1900 08/ 1/2012 #

Yes, but do you have a dancing banana?

blessedtwox 08/ 2/2012 #

EsmeAna 08/ 2/2012 #

spotteddogs 08/ 3/2012 #

I want a dancing banana covered in PB&J.

Paige1900 08/ 3/2012 #

Thus far everyone requesting a dancing banana has received one...the PB&J will have to be self supplied. : )

You guys are so entertaining!

Paige1900 08/10/2012 #

Our very own Ms @BugsandBells asked whether the lucky parcel should be mailed in the bag itself or in another envelope. I suggested in another envelope, in case the bag gets torn nothing will be destroyed. However; that is only my suggestion and what I am going to do. : )
