This was a swap I loved in a now closed group. I have participated and hosted this several times and it is really a lot of fun! You'll end up with a basket / clothesline filled with envelopes in December! I loved doing this swap! This is completely copied from the one originally hosted by @oblivionspin She has given me permission to copy and host this swap.

"I'm sure we've all seen these swaps floating around. If you have been eyeing them but were worried about safe swapping, here's a swap for you.

You will have 5 partners for this swap.

To each partner, send an envelope with some sort of flat goody inside.

The envelope is actually the wrapping paper so it needs to be decorated at least a little and your username and swap info must be on the outside. Flat decorations think: stamping, inking, stenciling, stickers and washi!

The envelope and goody inside can be loosely profile based, winter themed or Christmas themed. Basically, if you want to work ahead you need to go festive. Nothing religious unless you're sure your partner would like it.

Examples of acceptable goodies:

sticker sheet, a handful of sticker flakes, washi samples, envelope seals, address labels, unused or interesting used postage, ATCs, bookmarks, postcards, hot beverage packet (if partner drinks them), seasonal cardstock, small profile based surprise, swap cards, wintery ephemera, neat photographs, images neatly cut for use in collages, blank notecard with envelope, hand cut envelopes (regular or atc sized), anything else along those veins. We're a pretty cozy group, if you think something you want to send would be nice, it probably is.

I want to add that it's really nice if you use a small envelope or tiny, flat goodie bag for your "gifts". Also, holiday cards are nice to add but do try to stay with low postage costs. You can use a flat piece of cardstock ( or whatever you want ) to write a message and secure

Please RATE when you GET your swap. You do not need to open them to rate! But we are all far too scatterbrained to wait until December to rate ;)

There will be a total of 5 of these swaps. Each one with 5 partners. If you join all the swaps you will end up with enough envelopes to open one everyday from the 1st of December until Christmas."

There is a 6th swap for a flat goodie worth about $5. This is swap #3 and you can absolutely start preparing your envelopes now. Please, DO NOT send junk. Everything should be in new condition. This is a GIFT swap albeit an inexpensive one.

PM me with any questions.

Edit: Pls put your swapbot ID and this swap name on the outside of the envie. If you are on Instagram, please post a pic and use the hashtag #cpgswap.

I extended the send by date at the request of a participant. So if you have considered making something for each recipient, this might be the swap to do it in. Cheers! Patty
