I have just discovered Friendship Books in the past month or so and have been having fun taking part in various swaps. Now that I have a little collection I thought it would be fun to host one!

(If you don't know what Friendship Books are scroll down to the bottom for some more information)

Details: You will send 5 new or established Friendship Books to 3 partners (so 15 in total). These can be books you make for yourself, for a friend or ones you have received from other swaps. I am going to keep this swap open international so please keep the extra postage in mind when signing up.

Please send Friendship Books only (paper stapled inside of some type of cover) and not just sheets of paper-that is a different type of swap.

What are Friendship Books? Friendship books are made by stapling small pieces of paper inside a cover usually decorative paper or perhaps magazine pages etc.

A friendship book is made for someone (yourself or a friend). Usually inside the cover you would write: Made for: (person's name and address) Made by: (your name)

If you are making the book for yourself you would write: "Made for and by" and include your information.

Once you have done that you send the book to a person who will put their name, address and perhaps a few interests in the book and mail it to someone else. The book gets passed around until full. The last person who adds to the book mails it back to the person it was made for and that person now has a book full of potential pen pals.

A few things to note: Do not send these to prisons (unless it's that type of swap :) and if someone has stated that they only want female pen pals don't forward it on to male pen pals and don't take part if you don't plan to mail it back should you be the last entry.

If you are making the book always be sure to put the full address of the person you are making it for so it can be sent back to them.

There are two videos I found that talk about these as well if you would like more of a visual.
