For this swap, you will have 2 partners & you will be sending each partner at least 5 flat items that are whimsical theme/motif.

Ideas for items that can be included are: - stationery - cut outs/collage/smash book/ephemera items - stickers, embellishments, die-cuts - note cards, sticky notes - washi tape - pens, small trinkets, ribbon - only one handmade allowed such as ATC, mail art, envelope book, jewelry or something else

It is senders choice when choosing items to send with the only rule being it has to stick to a whimsical theme & motif. Whimsical is defined by: "playfully quaint or fanciful, especially in an appealing and amusing way" and could be but is not limited to:

  • dream-like, pretty, girly, but never tacky
  • florals
  • light patterns
  • fairies, fairy tales
  • nature, owls, birds, tea cups, woodland creatures, pretty architecture
  • delicate
  • cute word art, quotes/animals/animations & characters & cartoons, however no sanrio themes, disney or the like

I'll be looking at profiles to see if you have this sort of thing listed in your profile just so I know you have a good understanding of it. I cant force people into believing what they think is whimsical or not, but please only join this swap if you know what I am talking about and what is expected of you. If you are still confused, you can easily google "whimsical themes" or just "whimsical" and especially pinterest.

This swap is international but should still be lightweight & inexpensive, the type 3 is there for anyone who wishes to send anything handmade for their partner. Depending on how this swap goes there might be another round.

Please don't join if you have unresolved bad ratings, I will be banning anyone like that from this swap. If you have 1's and 3's, please make sure you have reasons in your profile. No flakers please.
