Bag Layout

With Tamawi's permission, I'm creating a U.S. version of her ongoing Sticker Bags Across the World swap.

For this swap we will each send one partner 3 new or established stickers bags. You will eitherโ€ฆ

A) Make 3 new sticker bags,

B) Send 3 established sticker bags or

C) Make and send a mix of 3 new/established sticker bags.

Option A:

Make 3 small envelope/flat bags that each have the following, then send them to your partner:

  • A batch of loose stickers inside

  • An area for signatures and dates

  • A label with the rules of the bag (This is up to you, but an example is "Take 2 stickers and add 4 new stickers. No teacher reward stickers. Sign and date this bag. Signer #5 send home.")

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

Option B:

Gather 3 established sticker bags with at least one signer and mail them to your partner. Confirm each bag is not signed by, created by or for your partner before sending. One homer is allowed (meaning your swap partner will be the last signer who sends the bag home).

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

Option C:

Gather 1 or 2 established sticker bags with at least one signer. Confirm the bag is not signed by, created by or for your partner before sending. One homer is allowed (meaning your swap partner will be the last signer who sends the bag home). Make 1 or 2 new bags from a small envelopes/flat bag. The new bag will have the following:

  • A batch of loose stickers inside

  • An area for signatures and dates

  • A label with the rules of the bag (This is up to you, but an example is "Take 2 stickers and add 4 new stickers. No teacher reward stickers. Sign and date this bag. Signer #5 send home.")

When you receive 3 sticker bags from your partner, see if one bag has one signer remaining (homer). If it does, follow the rules on the bag and send it home to its recipient. For sticker bags with more than one signer remaining, follow the rules on the bag and wait for a future swap to assign you a partner.

Hello, I have just one question regarding this swap. How does #5 know where home is? Sorry I am new to sticker swaps but it sounds like fun!

The bag is made for someone on the front and number 5 is to send to the owner of the bag. I swap these all the time.

If you're making new bags, you'll put your name & address as the "from" person. You can also add your name in the "for" (recipient) field if you want to have the full bags come home to you. If you'd like the bags to reach someone else after they're full, put her name/address in the "for" field. When I made my very first bags, I had them come home to me. Once you receive bags in a swap, you can put them in play in the next round.

Thank you all for the information. Sounds like this will be fun.

How many stickers does a bag generally start out with? This is my first time in this swap but I have done goodie bags in the past. Thanks!

Allegrae 10/15/2020 #

I start bags with 10 stickers.
