Does your scraps bin overfloweth? Mine does! I am on a 'use it up' personal challenge this year, and I have attacked my scraps bin to make room for new bits. I have had so much fun, I thought I would see if anybody else wanted to join.

This swap challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to take a pile of your scraps (any and all sizes will do), and cut into circles using scissors - NO PUNCHES for this one. Cut all different sized circles. Once you have your pile of circles, start stacking them in pleasing ways, Kandinsky Circle like and glue them together. You can stack as many or as few circles as you like and whatever sizes make you happy. I am asking for a minimum of 3 (three) circle layers per completed element. Feel free to lightly decorate your completed circles if you like. Try to stay flat for easy shipping.

You will send your partner 4 (four) completed circles (this should be in the 1-2 stamp range for postage), any sizes you wish.

Swap Requirments:

  • Hand-cut circles from your scraps

  • Glue different sized circles together (be sure to keep your work neat and tidy - no visible glue globs, torn edges, etc) using a minimum of 3 (three) layers.

    • Send your partner 4 (four) completed circle elements.

    • Be sure to put your name, Swap-Bot ID, and swap name in the envelope so your partner can rate you.

    • I will angel any flaked swaps, after a 1 (one) rating has been given.

    • Sending within the send-by deadline is a requirement, not a suggestion. If you will be late you must contact both your partner AND myself to let us know why you will be late and when it will be sent.

I just spent the afternoon working on this swap. I LOVE making these! They are so cute. Thanks for hosting, @HippieChick :-)

They are super addictive to make! Super glad you're having fun with it.

Do you have photos of any that you've made? I'd love to see some before I jump into making my own.

I was hoping to see an example, too!

So sorry ladies! I had meant to come back and add a photo and forgot. Instagram link to photos

Thank you!

user6937 03/17/2019 #

That helps a lot; now I feel confident that I can do it :)

@HippieChick I hope you'll do this as a series, maybe every couple of months or so? No pressure, I just think it's super fun!
