If you've seen 'Amelie' you probably love it. It's undeniable - this film is beautiful, and everything a film should be.

I thought it would be fun to craft a few items in the films honor, so that we may always have a piece of something beautiful around us! Now, because the crafting possibilities are endless, I've created a list. Please, if you can think of anything else that could make an interesting Amelie piece, leave a comment and I might add it to the list! You do NOT have to craft everything on this list, but you must pick at least 3 items. As well as the 3 items (at least) you must send your partner a letter. Include in the letter some of the unique, little things that make you happy and what you would put in your own little tin (Remember Dominique Bretodeau's tin?)

These items must be at least 50% handmade. If you are buying some of your items, please make sure they keep in with the theme of the swap.

  1. A set of 5 Postcards
  2. A decorated Notebook/Journal
  3. A mix cd with music you find inspiring - Consider the video Amelie makes for Dufayel.
  4. Whimsy Jar - Size is up to you, but consider the whimsical box Amelie finds.
  5. Set of 3 magnets
  6. Decorated trinket box - Again, size is up to you.
  7. Set of 2 ATCs
  8. 3 bookmarks

Be creative! Just because the swap is in honor of 'Amelie' it does not mean you have to have her face on every single piece. Use colors, quotes, any inspiration you find from the film! If there is one thing on the list you would really not like to receive, leave a comment. Partners, remember to check the comments before you begin crafting to make sure you won't be making something your partner would not want. Consider hearts for paying attention to profiles, and personal details!

No unexplained no-sends, and no ratings under 4.7 please! I will ban anyone I find to be suspicious. This IS an INTERNATIONAL swap. If you do not think you can join because of this, shoot me a message and I'll arrange a US only one. Personally, I would love to receive items from international 'Amelie' fans!

Now that's a lot of typing so here's the jist - pick at least 3 items and include the letter. HAVE FUN!

Making my watch list - I need to watch the film first! I love an excuse to watch a good movie. :D

tampagirl 02/ 7/2009 #

wokeupmissing 02/ 7/2009 #

me too...i haven't seen the movie, yet, but this swap sounds like something i'd be into. don't know if i'd want anything with her face on it, though.

This is the most awesome swap I've seen yet but I'm not creative enough for it lol

jdb822 02/ 7/2009 #

@Zefaniya - psshaw! Of course you are, I was just checking out your Flickr and you've got quite a photographic eye, so I'm sure you'd be creative enough for this! If you like, I'll be creating another round in a couple weeks so you can join then.

I'm going to set up an Amelie Flickr group, so if you like to post pics of your received swaps on Flickr, post em in my group! I'll put the link up soon.

I really want to do this swap, but I'm concerned about time. Let me know if you host another one later, or push back the send by date! Awesome idea!

I just re-watched Amelie and still love it :) I was about to do a similar Amelie swap..but I guess @jdb822 beat me to it ;D lol I don't mind her(Amelie) face on one or two item(s) but just not on everything. Thanks for hosting this fun swap by the way :)

coeurdartichaut 02/ 8/2009 #

On my watch list now! I need to make sure I'll have time before joining but I love Amelie. I once hosted an Amelie ATC swap on nervousness.org.

I'm sorry that I have to drop this :(

Ajinka 02/13/2009 #

Hi!!!Can I join if I'm newbie???It's really nice swap...I love it!!!

LavenderLizard 02/14/2009 #

I'm addicted to making stuffies--would it be all right to make one of those for the package, or should I stick with just what is listed? I can do it either way!

jdb822 02/14/2009 #

@lavenderlizard - Sure! You can make anything you like, really. Just make sure you meet the minimum number of items and there not absolutely tiny. @ajinka - of course you can join, just be prepared, this swaps a little bigger than the usual Swap-Bot swaps.

LavenderLizard 02/16/2009 #

Rats, I have to drop...timing might not allow me to do it justice. I hope you have another Amelie swap later!
