Want to join one of these amazing stuffed envelope swaps, but you're on a tight budget? This swap is for you! In this swap, you will be sending an envelope with five paper items in it. Swap items include magazine cutouts, stamped images, images printed on cardstock, stickers, washi tape samples, ribbon, glitter, planner supplies, journal cards, etc. Look into your stash and see what you can spare. For example, use your creativity and decorate a stamped image with glitter. This swap is designed around you not having to spend any money other than postage, so get creative for your items!

This swap is going to be sender's choice BUT we all know taking your partner's tastes into consideration is a good way to earn them hearts! <3

This swap should only use one to two stamps

Swappers with a rating of 5 only. If you feel you were unfairly rated in the past, please PM me, and I'll take your situation into consideration. :) I'll allow new swappers to the fold and angel if they flake. Newbies: please have a fully filled out profile. You'll have one partner to send to.

If this swap goes well, I'll do some themed ones in the future.

Thank you for doing this swap and hope this swap goes well so you do more. Nice to use and send things from my stash.

I think she is just giving us an example of something we can do. I don't think she means we just add glitter to a stamped image...Someone correct me if I am wrong.

lockerelf 08/21/2017 #

Yes! It's an example of something you can send! I'm sorry that wasn't clear :D

lockerelf 08/21/2017 #

I'll be happy to do more in the future! I'll tag it with the Too Broke To Joke tag and then add a theme! I'm so happy you like it! :D

lockerelf 08/21/2017 #

Also, if you have any themes you'd like to see, please let me know! I'm happy to take suggestions!

I would have liked to join this swap, but since one person rated me a 3 when my mother had a stroke and I was a few days late sending even though I contacted her about it I am excluded. I understand flakes are no fun, but there are a lot of great swapper out there that have run into an uptight person that unfairly rates.

I think color themes would be cool for this!

LaurenPappas 08/22/2017 #

Yes, I love the idea of it having themes! Colors would definitely be fun and a mini challenge.

Very cool swap. Will who we swap with be posted, or...?

lockerelf 08/22/2017 #

@xstitcher I'll be assigning partners tomorrow :) When I do, you'll see an option appear on the top right of the screen where it says "swap member options" that says "see the partners you send to". Click that and a pop-up with your partner's mailing address and information will come up. :)

Where do I find my partner at?

Madameabi 08/23/2017 #

I am brand spanking new to this, this will be my first swap using swap-bot. I got an e-mail saying my partner had been assigned but I do not understand where to go to find my partner. Thanks for any help! :-)

lockerelf 08/25/2017 #

Hi guys! For those looking for their partners, you should now see an option on the top right of this page to see the partners you send to. Click on that and a pop-up will appear with your partner's address in it. If this still isn't clear, please click the contact option next to my name next to "swap coordinator", and I'll be happy to help you further!
