Hey everyone! I received permission from @burntbao (the original host of this swap series) to continue doing this fun swap (one of my favorites).

For this swap, you will fill an envelope with some Kawaii goodies, put a forever postage stamp (49¢) on it and send to your partner. Please make sure that it weighs as closely to an ounce as possible. Remember that this swap is to make someone's day so do not send trash.

Possible ideas of what you can send:

  • Mini memo sheets
  • Large memo sheets
  • Diecut memo sheets
  • Sticker sheets
  • Sticker flakes
  • Mini envelopes
  • Mini letter sets/letter sets
  • Kawaii washi tape samples

Please send only branded Kawaii (San-X, Kamio, Sanrio, Q-lia, etc). No Disney, Diddl, American Hello Kitty, Morning Glory, Korean/Taiwanese Kawaii. Please refer to the guide by @ColoradoKate on what counts as Kawaii.

Include a note/card with your swap-bot ID and swap name.

Do not fold memo sheets or letter sets. Must be packaged well so items are not damaged. Reinforce envelope if necessary. Sticker flakes should be in a smaller envelope/baggie of their own so they're not thrown all over in the envelope.

This is sender's choice but check your partner's profile to ensure you're not sending them anything on their dislike list.

I will be checking profiles before assigning partners. No unexplained 1s or 3s. No flakers but newbies are welcome to join. I will angel if necessary.

Four identical swaps (none of them international! :'( )

Why don't you just make one swap with 4 partners?

Just to make sure, I understand branded Kawaii. Does that exclude buying something from DAISO or Marukai Marketplace? If so, i'll go to the websites mentioned on ColoradoKate pdf handout.

@ladyfluorspar I wasn't sure what the international interest would be. Usually when I host any international swaps, I get maybe 1-2 people in it. The reason for 4 separate one is I wanted this to be a weekly swap series.

@chapter80 Yes, this does exclude DAISO. I'm not familiar with Marukai Marketplace but if they sell brands like San-x, Q-lia, Mindwave, etc. it should be fine.

I understand the importance of properly packaging items, so they arrive intact, but the USPS requires postage beyond a Forever/49-cent stamp to mail a rigid/non-bendable envelope; would this be permissible, in order to keep the contents of our swaps unfolded/bent?
