Let's recycle some of that junk mail! I am always looking at the mail to see if there is anything I can "craft" with - lol! There are lots of cool envelopes and advertisements out there. The challenge for this swap is to create your partner something using junk mail. It is sender's choice of what to make - it can be an embellishment, card, tag, ATC, paperclip, etc. You can be creative and do whatever inspires you as long as it has some type of junk mail used somewhere in your project. In the sample picture above, I made a tag for another swap I am in (thequilterslink you should be getting this tag soon ;) - lol) using a Tracfone advertisement and also used some clear packaging that I embossed on top. Do your best work and send something that you would love to receive yourself. If you have any questions, please message me.

Include with your swap the swap title and your swap ID.

No 1's or 3's in the last year with no previous history of unexplained 1's or 3's. You must have at least a 4.9 rating to participate in this swap.

This swap is sender's choice, so if you are very specific about what you can and cannot receive or have a list of dislikes a mile long, this swap is not for you!

Rate your partner upon receipt of your swap. No one should have to hunt down a rating! In my opinion, non-raters are just as bad as flakers!

If you receive the swap and it meets the swap requirements, you must rate a 5 even if it is not your style or something you personally like. Hearts are available if you absolutely loved the swap and thought it was amazing! A 3 rating is for swaps that do not meet requirements or that are late. Please do not be the “Swap Police!” You don't need to investigate every detail of a swap to see if it “cleared the rules” or look at postmarks hoping to catch someone mailing a day late! If it is obvious fine, but don't be petty and go looking for minor “infractions!” A 1 rating is if you did not receive your swap. I will angel those who do not receive a swap I host after they have tried to resolve the situation with their swap partner and are unable to resolve the problem and after they have rated their partner a 1.

Please be kind and respectful – no drama! Swap-bot is supposed to be fun! :)

@thequilterslink - lol, I am happy you like it! :) I hope I didn't spoil the surprise for you! The heart tag I made for you inspired me to do this swap! :)
