Hey everybody!

This swap is going to be about mini loaded paper bags! To me this seems like a very cute idea for our journals!!

I recently found a project idea for myself. I have all this extra paper, ephemera and little bits that I would love to put together and create something pretty for somebody.

πŸ’ŒπŸ’ŒThere is a YouTube video tutorial on what I'm talking about by lyriclover810.

She is so talented with these bags! They are so cute!!

So I'm putting this swap together to trade decorated mini loaded paper bags.

πŸ’ŒWhat needs to be inside them is really anything you think the other person would like and maybe can use in their journals. Some examples would be washi samples, maybe a bookmark, maybe little cut out pieces that they can decorate their journal with. Some embellishments, some stickers. Those are just some examples. You have to have at least three items in your mini loaded bag! Your mini loaded paper bag needs to be decorated front and back. The back only needs to have a pretty cardstock on it. Not just the paper bag showing. You can leave the actual decorations for the front. You can't just slap some stickers on the front and call it a day. You actually have to show creativity in the slightest. I'm not the biggest creative person in the world. But show some initiative ❀️❀️

πŸ’ŒThe paper bags have to be mini sized. I think you can pick some up from hobby lobby or if you get them from a store but I wouldn't know exactly what store would carry mini size. No wrinkled bags. Not too wrinkled anyways. Not ripped. Needs to be in good form. Like not a regular sized brown paper lunch bag. The mini ones are half the size of the regular brown paper lunch bags.

πŸ’ŒThere is no theme for this swap. Matching theme is always nice. Or a certain color theme going on.

πŸ’” Also by the time the sign up date ends, if there are only less than 3 people participating then I'm just going to cancel the swap. Then maybe it's not such a good idea after all😣 but I think it's cute!

πŸ’” You have to have at least 15 swaps completed 😏 no unexplained 1's or 3's.

Look at your partners profile for likes and dislikes. Try to do more of what they like! But also senders choice. A mix of both

Come join!! It won't be till next month so we have time to gather our thoughts and crafts 😍 come join!

Any questions please send me a message. Any comments down below I won't see right away.


Check back every once in awhile for a slight editing. Nothing major just if I forgot to add something

For those who don't already know...Amazon has mini paper bags at a great price...I wish newbies were allowed for this one because I love being creative.

I don't have precise dimensions. But it can't be a regular size paper bag. It has to be a paper bag that is at least half the size of a regular bag. A brown paper lunch bag except it's mini size LOL. It literally looks like a regular brown paper lunch bag except it's literally only half the size. It's a really cute size! Also I seen some at hobby lobby that were white paper bags as well. If you would like to use the white ones you can. Just can't use the decorated mini bags.
