I watch all these YouTube videos of crafters who just reach across their work surface and grab something awesome to use in their creations. Their tables must be a mess, but they always have something to work with right at hand. Look around on your table (or the floor?) and see what scraps you might have you'd be willing to part with, package a handful of them up and send them to your partner. In return, you might get some awesome goodies to scatter on your table to use next time you craft!

DO SEND: (these are just suggestions as I don't know what you have to send...)

  • Paper scraps
  • Fussy cut pictures
  • Punched shapes or die cuts
  • Ephemera such as fortunes from cookies, ticket stubs, decorative napkins, pieces of book pages, sheet music, etc.
  • Stamped images
  • Washi tape samples
  • Printed tissue paper scraps


  • Trash
  • Junk mail
  • Tiny bits of printed scrapbook paper

Send between one and two ounces worth of a variety of treasures to your partner. Package securely, send on time, rate promptly.

Is there a minimum requirement as to how much we are to send, 1 or to stamps?, 6 X 9 manilla envie? I tend to go way over board and if I can have a parameter I seem to work better. Thanks......=)

Yes, whats the requirements? A certain number of pieces? ONe stamp envie? Thanks.

Between 1 and 2 ounces, so however you interpret that is up to you. So over one ounce, less than or up to 2.

If you do not own a scale I find that about eight ATC (2½ x 3½) papers = an ounce. Think accordingly.

Do you think you could host this every month or every 6 weeks? It has been really popular.
