This swap is for people who would like to get into swapping Friendship Books. It is also newbie friendly.

For this swap you will send 3 new Friendship Books:

1 made for yourself

1 made for the person you are sending to

1 for the person you are receiving from

Once partners are assigned, contact that person for their address. (EX: I am sending to Mary, but receiving from Rachel. I will contact Rachel for her address, make the Friendship Book for her and send all 3 to Mary.)

If this goes good, then I'll make it a monthly swap.

Questions, just ask!

To the people who are new to Friendship Books-here's a couple links that will explain what they are:

are you considering to make an international too? or have I permission to set up an European one?

Neeky8 03/25/2013 #

Just a question - you'll make one for the person you are sending to, but then you have to send it to that person? Which means they are seeing and passing on a FB that they are not supposed to see until it is full and returned to them? Or am I mistaken?

I have never made these before but am interested in trying. How many pages do you add after you make a cover and are these pages to be filled by who you send them to? Do you put in information about yourself on a page in the book? I see plenty of idea's on how to make the covers but am unaware of what goes in them. Please explain.

mayuze - I don't mind if you do an international one. I have a limited postal budget and international takes up most of it, so I very seldom do them anymore.

Neeky8 - Yes, you will be sending the FB to the owner. Then she can pass it along with the other 2 she receives.

LilyM - It depends on the size you are making your Friendship Books. You don't want too many pages as it will take a long time to get back to you or will disapper. (Some people throw away big books because the are heavy and cost alot to move) If your FB is around 4x4 or 4x5 inches, then 3-4 pages is a good size.

After you put in your name and addy you can add information if you'd like. Here's an example of my label: "Swappers welcome. No letter pals. I will make FB's for Box Tops for education coupons, Campbell's UPC/points and many more items. Write for my list."

Some people put down that they want penpals and a few of their interests so they can get pals that share them. They also put down things that they will swap.

I'll try to find a good link that explains all of these as I don't want to take up alot of room explaining each one.

Thank you. Your explanation tells me about everything I need to know I think. I will join and then when I receive mine I will know by my partners if I have done everything right. This sounds like fun!
