Easy swap, but be warned: It is timetaking! Send 25 clippings to your partner. These clippings can be cut out of magazines, books, hobbysheets, junkmail or flyers. Clip each image neatly and precisely!

The clippings must be usable for atc, journals or handmade postcards. So don't send very tiny or very big ones.

Send only clippings from the listed subjects. Make sure you send at least 7 different subjects, with a maximum of 5 clippings for each subject (So yes, 1 clipping from each subject + 5 extra is allowed too). Choose attractive images which your partner can use again in craftworks. You can already start clipping, the clippings are sender's choice.

Send out your clippings sorted. A part of the fun is how you receive your swap. Include a little note to explain which subjects you have chosen, the name of the swap and your swapbot name. No unrated swappers allowed, and ratings must be type 2 or 3 (not electronic).

Hello! As long as I fulfill the brief is it ok to send more or would you prefer we stick to 25? I'm in clipping mode, it's all I feel like doing รฐลธหœโ€ž Thanks, Michelle

Sorry! I have another question, I hope it isn't a silly one. Do the clippings have to be photographic images of each catagory, except for 'cartoon/ illustration/drawing'? For example, if I send illustrations of animals this doesn't count as in the animal catagory? Again, apologies, maybe I had too much coffee today xx Michelle

could it be a copy of image from magazine?

@madebymimi 1) When you have fullfilled the 25 clippings from the swap, you can send as many extra's as you wish. Remember the 25 clippings from the swap are the important ones! Most handy is when you obvious make clear which clippings are from the swap and which clippings are for the extra. 2) No, the clippings do not have to be photographic. But for animals they must be realistic. So don't send donald duck or garfield in the animal catagory. But a drawn animal from an encyclopedia would be fine :-)

@Darida This swap is not for copies. Please, try to find magazines in which you can clip (thriftstores, fleamarkets, and so on)

This is such a fun idea. I hope you will think about opening another one of these swaps for those of us with a 4.9 rating (I have one rating of a 3 from 2012 that keeps me from these 5.0 swaps).

Great swap idea!

@Fenix825 We can do the swap private if you like.

Oh I wish I still had my old account so I could do this one!! Maybe next time, when I am rated again. Have fun people!

@DishGirl It is not allowed to have more than one account. If you had an account before, but deleted it, you really should contact admin to ask to reactivate your old account.
