10 Things Swap #3 - Newbie Friendly

This is a SUPER easy swap with a FAST turnaround. Great way for newbies to get their ratings!

*Send 10 things from the list below *If you want to add more items that's up to you. *Please do not expect to receive more than what's required of your partner!

There will be only 4 days to send after the swap sign up closes, so get this ready now and send on time please. Being this is senders choice, you can prepare this ahead of time so that when partners are assigned you're all set to mail your swap.

You will have 2 swap partners.

If you can, please decorate the outside of your envelope with Washi tape, stickers or draw something cute or pretty. You can write an inspirational quote. Not required- but would be nice to do for your partner :)

Description: CHOOSE ANY OF THE ITEMS LISTED BELOW - YOU MUST SEND A TOTAL OF 10 ITEMS! Please send a combination of things. Please do not send more than 2 of the same item.

  1. Pretty or cute sheet of stationary paper
  2. Unused forever postage stamp - a post card stamp is fine.
  3. Washi tape sample (minimum of 15" inches - wrapped around something that is easy to take it off of like a playing card.
  4. Blank note/ greeting card with envelope
  5. Envelope - handmade - mailing size
  6. 3 Die cuts or 3 punches - must be as big or larger than a quarter (sending 3 punches or die cuts counts as one item)
  7. Ribbon (at least 10 inches long)
  8. Ephemera (please send 3 pieces)
  9. Recipe - cut from a magazine, printed or handwritten.
  10. New postcard
  11. Bookmark - store bought or handmade. Please no freebie types
  12. Blank ATC card - On heavy white cardstock paper
  13. ATC made by you or someone else (great way to pass along an ATC you don't plan on keeping
  14. 5 Stickers - no itty bitty pinky nail size. No teach reward type. They will not count as an item if you add them. Send for free as a bonus is fine- but they will not count!
  15. A letter to your partner. 1/2 to full page long. Typed or handwritten. You may might just make a new pen pal friend :)
  16. New and sealed tea bag. If you don't drink tea, simply pass it along to someone else. A lot of swappers like tea :)

Please feel free to add more than 10 items if your heart leads you to do so. Please do not expect the same in return. Everyone sends according to their budget. Thank you :)

Remember to include your swap-bot name inside your envelope.

The rules are simple: Send 10 things from the list Do not send anything gothic, dark or religious. Please only send nice items you'd be happy to receive :)

Rate your partner a 5 if they have met the swap requirements. Giving a heart is up to you. Must have a rating of 4.95 to join. No recent unexplained 1's or 3's.

****Newbies**** You MUST have a well filled out profile to participate in my swap. I will be checking profiles before assigning partners. I will delete anyone from this swap who hasn't filled out their profile. Take a moment to look at several other members profiles. This will give you a good clue as to what information you can give to build your own profile. It just takes a little time and effort.

PLEASE DO NOT JOIN THIS SWAP IF: 1. You don't feel it's important to send this on time - newbies, it does matter to send swaps by the date. If an unexpected life event or emergency comes up, please message your partner and let them know. 2. If you are expecting a huge stuffed envelope of items beyond the requirements, please do not join! 3. If you're super picky or have a lot of dislikes - do not join! This is "senders" choice! Unfortunately all of the above happened with the last swap, so let's avoid that and PLEASE read the directions before you sign up. Feel free to ask me any questions if you're not sure. Thank you :)

I highly recommend that all new members sign up to any newbie friendly groups such as "Newbie Helpers."

*****Attention Newbie's***** Always check the yellow box on the upper right of your screen for important information when swapping. It shows who your partners are to send to. It shows who you are to rate for the swap you received. And if you click on the list of participants, it shows you if your partner has sent or not. Please check the yellow box out and get very familiar with it before asking questions. ❤️I will angel this swap after 3-4 weeks of no communication with your Partner or they still have not sent the swap and you rated them a 1 We are all responsible adult swappers on here, so I highly doubt this will happen. After you rate them a 1 - I will Angel the swap. This process usually takes 4 weeks. Mail can get lost, so everyone deserves the benefit of doubt. It may even happen to you one day. Please always reach out to your swap partner and give them a chance to rectify before rating a 1 or a 3 Thank you for joining my swap!

You have an ATC listed twice - #13 and #17

Question - I don't use washi tape, but quite often receive it in swaps. I don't know how many inches there are of each. As long as I send 2 or 3 different samples I should be ok?

Watching for now....

@institches thank you so much for the heads up. I knew I had listed them twice because one is for a blank ATC and the other is for a finished ATC. But now I see I put a finished ATC twice. So 3 altogether. Oops! I must really like ATC's haha!

Absolutely! It would be a pain to unravel it to measure. I think sending 2-3 samples would be safe.

I have everything but confused of the atc.... The blank one is it just a small piece of thick cardstock? Or something you buy in a pack?
