[I ran this same swap back in 2015 when WOW! was a very active group. 12 people participated. I am hopeful that with our current 82 members, at least 12 more people will come out to play, and who knows, maybe a new record will be set.]

These days a tall size Caramel Macchiato and a petite vanilla bean scone at Starbucks (my favorite!) costs just shy of $5.00. Because they are both delicious, it's hard to savor them and before I know it they're both gone. :(

For about a dollar less than that in postage, we can send 8 partners, 8 different washi tape samples (see note below). This will give us all 64 washi tape samples to play with!! Oh my, the anticipation of receiving all that happy washi in our mailboxes - what fun indeed! LOL!!

Each tape sample needs to be a minimum of 18 inches in length, and be wrapped around a shiny surface for easy removing. Playing cards work well (but if from China, please wrap them with packing tape first). If you lay your wrapped cards side by side and add a little snippet of washi tape to the center, they'll stay together and flat for mailing. With a little note inside, some washi decor on the outside, each one will mail for one forever first class stamp.

(Note: Please don't send shiny deco/plastic tapes, Dollar Store brand tapes, fabric tapes, glitter tapes, regular scotch tapes, or solid color tapes.)

Won't you forego one latte & scone and come out to play? Or get the latte & scone anyway enjoy them while you wrap up your tapes! :)

This swap is sender's choice so we can all start wrapping our tapes now if we want to.

Lastly, if you sign up to play, please follow through on your commitment.

We're half way there. Think of all that washi goodness soon to be shared!! 😀

We're up to 6. How exciting! I've got so many new tapes to share! 😀

I wrapped up my tapes today, including 6 extras per person. It was great to get several rolls emptied that only had a little bit left on them. Those were taking up valuable landscape in my storage boxes!!

Cool, @orneryswife

We are at 9 participants so that means this swap is a go. I'll be assigning partners tomorrow (Sunday). I'm excited for the fun we'll all have sending and receiving and creating with our new tapes!

I dropped my swaps in the mail yesterday (Monday) for pick up today. And I just realized that I think I mixed up the samples and the address labels. Oops! I'd tried to match up tapes to profiles, but I may have made a mess of it. :( Sorry in advance!
