A while back we did a hexaminizine swap, and I would like to bring them back to ZMACS! Click here for many many hexaminizine ideas links.

The webs we weave ... Webs are symbols for association, connection, bringing together. They are also associated with entrapment, entanglement, to be approached with caution. In mythology, spiders are creative, life-giving ... and sometimes tricky.

In this swap, we will create one small zine with hexagonal pages with the theme "Webs We Weave" for one partner. It is possible to make a hexaminizine that can be copied and sent out to multiple partners, but it is a bit more ... tricky. Maybe we'll do multiple partners in the next swap!

In the meantime, here are some more web challenges for inspiration (not required for the swap)! Make a giant yarn spider web; make an ojo-de-Dios style spiderweb from yarn, make a spider web cape from fabric, make a spider mother/ child costume .. a little creepy .., make a kirigami paper spider web, similar to a paper snowflake, and crochet a spider web.

Have fun, be creative, and may the only spiders you receive in the mail be welcome ones :) Open to all ZMACS members in good standing. I will angel any unsent swaps!

It doesn't have to be to do with spiders? I would freak out if I got a spider zine in the post!

Any interpretation of webs is the theme .. if you wanted to request a 1:1 swap, I would be fine with a non-spider web interpretation, or a non-web theme!

Thanks for the interest, all. Partners assigned!

The hexagon origami envelope video on the old swap is easy and cool - how did I miss it before?? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VjaKgERoKyc
