This is the 1st installment of our deliver to label bag series inspired by the sticker and washi bag swaps.

In this swap a label is considered a deliver to label when it has 4 lines to write in an address and some sort of clipart on the side. It needs to be printed on sticky label paper.

For this swap, you will have 1 partners and you will send them 2 label bags. You will either… A) make new label bags or B) send established label bags or C) send 1 new & 1 established label bag

OPTION A (for new participants of this series) Make two label bags that each have the following: •A batch of senders choice deliver to labels inside •An area for signatures and dates •A label with the rules of the bag (this is up to you but an example would be “Take 2 labels and add 4 new labels. Sign and date this bag, sender #5 sends home.”) •Depending on the rules of the bag there needs to be a good number of opinions to choose from. If the bag says pick 2 then there needs to 4 labels, if pick 3 then 5, if 4 then 6 labels, and so on. •Behind the bag make sure to include your SwapBot ID, name of the swap and your address so the bag can be sent to you once the time arrives.

OPTION B Gather 2 established label bags and send them to your partner. Make sure they weren’t created by or already signed by your partner.

OPTION C Gather 1 new bag and 1 established label bag and mail them to your partner. Make sure they weren’t created by or already signed by your partner.

When you receive label bags from your partner see if the bag has one signer remaining (homer). If it does follow the rules on the bag and send it home to its recipient. For label bags with more than one signer remaining follow the rules and wait for a future swap to assign you a partner.

You may include a small letter or a special flat surprise but it isn’t required.

RATING must have a 4.98 and a well filled out profile. No unresolved 1s or 3s in the last six months. Please rate a 5 if you receive 2 label bags with all the requirements listed above.

PRECAUTIONS anyone who is unsure if they can commit to future swaps in this series please don’t join. This swap series requires commitment and patience.

Remember in total we will be sending 2 bags to 1 partner.

I just want to point out that this is different from what are typically considered label bags. This swap appears to be for blank "Deliver To:" labels.

Generally, a label bag (lb) is full of the participants address labels and those labels are used to later create other bags, friendship books, etc.

There's nothing wrong with hosting this particular swap, but people may be confused if they don't read this swap closely. I have plenty of label bags at home to pass along, but they'd obviously be inappropriate for this swap, haha.

@Caf1988 I'm so glad you pointed this out. I didn't realize it wasnt for typical label bags!! Even after reading it. But now I see what you and the creator mean. :) I'll drop out of this one then! Nice idea though PrettyAlice!
