One of the most fun holidays in elementary school was Valentine's Day!
I remember my mom taking me to the store to choose from dozens of boxed, perforated character valentines. I remember choosing a box themed after whatever my favorite thing was that year- Barbie or Beauty and the Beast or Lisa Frank. I remember carefully choosing which classmate would receive each valentine (which ones can I give the boys without them thinking I have a crush on them, which are the favorites that I will save for my best friends... all that important stuff).
And probably the best part was at the party when your little valentine box was stuffed full of cute and fun valentines from all your friends! (Maybe it's my fond memories of these exchanges that makes me like swapping so much?!)
The fun shouldn't end because we're not kids anymore, so I say we recreate that childhood magic by swapping fun boxed valentines!
For this swap, go to the store and find the display of children's boxed valentines. There are so many kinds these days- cartoons, animals, even movies like Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings! This is sender's choice, just like in school, so feel free to select your very favorite themed box! Then, you will send one valentine to each of your 10 partners. Make sure you fill out the To and From section with yours and your partner's names, and if your kit comes with stickers or bookmarks or other surprises, as some do, be sure to include them! Also, these types of valentines do not usually come with envelopes, but if they do, they still probably need to be put in a larger envelope for mailing since they are usually too small to mail on their own. So please be aware of that when sending.
Due to the large number of partners, this swap will be USA only to keep postage down, however, if anyone would like to host an international version, feel free to do so! You must have at least a 4.98 rating and be rated for 10 different Type 2 and/or 3 swaps to participate. No 3 or 1 ratings within the last six months (without good reason) and you may not have any late swaps on your dashboard as of the signup date. You also must have logged into Swap-bot within two days of the sign up date so that I know you are still active. I will ban participants on the day I check profiles.
Remember that you are going to send your favorite Valentines, as will your partners, so every Valentine that you receive might not be a character or theme you love. Thatâ€™s okay because your partner is sharing something with you that they love. So as long as the Valentine meets the swap requirements and was sent on time, you should rate a 5.
So, if you are still a kid at heart, sign up and weâ€™ll all have a Happy Valentineâ€™s Day together! :)
