I'm having fun coming up with ideas for our week 5 rotation of inexpensive profile-based swaps. JUST on the off chance that any of my fellow washi-tape addicts, um, enthusiasts are out there in our group, I thought I'd give this one a shot.

For this swap:

  1. Wishy: When you first sign up for the swap, you'll post in the comments below 5 themes for washi tape you WISH to receive (it's just a bit easier than an entire profile search, and guaranteed to be current that way). Please make sure to list these before the signup deadline in order to be included in the partner assignments.

  2. Washi: Once partners have been assigned, you'll check out your partner's WISHY list in the comments section of the swap and send samples of washi tape that match one, some, or all of your partner's themes (your choice). You should send at least four 16" or longer samples. Samples should be wrapped around a sturdy playing card or plastic: something with a laminated or taped surface so the entire length of washi can be used.

**please send good quality washi tape (not dollar store/paper tape or other deco tape that rips with a white edge or is shiny/plastic-y).

As long as you receive at least four 16" samples of washi tape that match at least one of your chosen themes (and were sent on time, of course), you should rate your partner a 5. Hearts, as always, are at your own discretion.

Have fun!

Some examples of ideas for themes:
♥ solid colors
♥ polka-dots
♥ stripes
♥ chevron
♥ black & white
♥ pastels
♥ brights
♥ multi-color
♥ a specific color
♥ metallic
♥ skinny tapes
♥ extra-wide tapes
♥ floral
♥ animals
♥ birds
♥ ocean/beach
♥ forest
♥ travel
♥ postal/airmail
♥ words
♥ vintage-look
♥ steampunk
♥ quirky

All group members must maintain well-filled-out profiles and meet the requirement of at least a 4.98 rating to join. In the unlikely event that it's necessary, I will angel this swap after you have attempted to contact your partner and honestly rated a "1" for a no-send.

Due to its simplicity, this is a fairly quick turn-around swap compared to some of ours. Please do not sign up if you can't get your envelope ready to send out by the send date.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. Have fun swapping!

If I get a positive response, I'll plan to host more wishy-washi swaps in the future. :)
