Hello fellow zine lovers!

Let's spread some amazing zines with this monthly swap series.

In the seventh round of the amaZINE swap you will send a zine made by yourself that has this topic: PETS.

The craft: a zine A zine is a tiny hand-made magazine. The original zine is reproduced with a photocopier. (see the swap-bot glossary for more details) In this swap we create an 8-page-zine made out of an A4- or Letter-sized paper sheet. How to fold and cut the zine is explained here: http://mentalbistro.tumblr.com/post/69609655909/8-pg-zine-from-a-single-sheet-of-paper To illustrate the zine you can write, doodle, paint, mix a collage, use stickers, washi, die cuts, photographs and whatelse comes to your mind. Get inspiration online. Postage costs are low, but the effort is high. Create something you would like to receive!

The topic: pets Create a zine about your current/dead/future/ideal pet. Or collect fun and interesting facts about pets in general. Or would you rather list possible or stupid pet names, what to do with a pet or why not have a pet at all? Be creative and use the endless possibilities.

The swap requirements: You will have three partners and send each partner one copy of your zine. You will keep your original. You have two weeks to send the zine. Make sure to add a note with your swap-bot ID and the swap name. I will review each swapper and will ban questionable swappers. Newbies with well filled out profiles are welcome. Rate your partner a 5, if you have received a pets themed swap, no matter, if you like it or not. Try to solve problems together and contact me for help. I will angel, if you have to rate a 1.

Any questions? Feel free to post in the comment section.

Happy swapping!

Can we send a pet themed zine we already recently made? As long as the partner/s isn't the person we sent it to in a previous swap?

Yes, you can send something you've already created as long as you haven't sent it before to that specific partner. As the swap is sender's choice, you can create the zines of this series already months ago.
