Here is a great light international swap.

We will be creating a mini book with just 1 sheet of doublesided 12 x 12 paper - you can use single sided paper but you would probably have to ink over the white side for colour, double sided is just easier but its up to you. If you need a tutorial its here, no special tools needed as you can just fold and crease the paper.


The theme will be chosen by the sender as not everyone has access to the kinds of papers etc that you would need to build round a theme of your partners choosing. I want people to be able to make this mini book with their crafty hoard without having to go and buy more things. You can list what sorts of themes you do like in case your partner already has papers etc that they could use.

This mini book will be embellished using whatever techniques you like, ie, embossing , inking etc and using whatever you would like, small charms, photos.

The front Cover will have a decoration of some sort on there, minimum of 4 of the pages must have some sort of decoration on there,I dont mean fully covered as you already have the background paper but you could add a stamp or an embellishment of some kind, either on the page or the little pocket or both its up to you.

and a minimum of 4 of the pockets will be filled with a tag or pull out of some kind, whatever fits your theme. You can handmake the tags /pullouts if you wish but bought are also acceptable, The book will be held together and tie with ribbon.

You may have to trim the paper slightly, alter and adapt as you go, each and every one of these little books will be unique, they may not be absolutely perfect but this adds to the charm.

You do not need to send anything extra on this swap it is not a swap requirement, it is of course entirely up to you. As long as you receive a mini book with the things mentioned above then your swap partner has met the requirements. 4.9 and above only

I will be happy with anything you create for me. I do love Halloween, Steampunk & Vintage themes in case you already have those things in your craft items.

I found 12x12 paper at Michael's today hidden in the clearance section 20 for $1.00. Bought a bunch and made them with my consumers today. The had a lot of fun. Next week we are going to embellish them.
