For this swap we will share our favourite quotes with our partner. You will make a small journal to display your quotes. The word "journal" is used loosely here as you can be as creative as you want and make anything that you want.

You can make something based on a mini flip book with quotes on flips and hidden in pockets, or be inspired by a mini zine with a quote on each page. You can use scrapbook paper to make a handmade journal and bind your pages any way you wish. You could make a mini book from small envelopes with a quote inside each.

Use your creativity to the full! Any other ideas are welcome. Feel free to come up with an interesting way to display your quotes that isn't listed here. This is a chance for non-creatives to try something new as there are no rules about how your "book" is made.

The only requirements are that you use at least 6 different quotes, that they are readable and that you are making your "journal" by hand.

There are a zillion ideas on Google, Pinterest and You Tube for handmade books and book-binding techniques if you need inspiration. Please feel free to comment below to inspire each other. Have fun! :-)

This swap is International as I live in England and cannot host USA only swaps.

How big ore small is this mini quote journal?

It's completely up to you to make the swap flexible, so everyone can do it how they wish :-)

If I was to photocopy an original zine with quotes I put together would be fine also?

Yes Zines are acceptable :-)
