This swap is for two tags, each 3”x 6” & the theme is THANKSGIVING or GRATITUDE.
We’ll start off with a piece of cardstock or other art paper & adhere it to a sturdy background, such as a cereal box. Decorate each one in whatever medium you choose – you can use paint, book pages, die cuts, words, scrapbook paper, fabric, lace, bling, whatever materials that work for you, & create 2 different, but very lovely, tags.
Just remember -- there has to be something on the tags that denote Thanksgiving or Gratitude, because we've already made Autumn tags! (NOTE: Of course it's Autumn, so just include a word or words that say Gratitude or Giving or Thanksgiving or Thanks, & that will work. I realize that the tags will most likely be autumnal as well.)
You can create layers & still keep the tag flat enough for the post office!
Remember, slapping on a sticker or 3 is not good enough, & neither is pasting on a picture. You must create something beautiful with whatever materials are at hand.
Since you know the theme -- THANKSGIVING or GRATITUDE -- you can get started with making your tags right away. Then, when partners are chosen, you can send them out quickly. If you run into any problems, communicate with your partner.
Create something beautiful that you would like to receive. Be creative!
Remember to put your name & your Swap-Bot name on the back of each tag, with the swap name & date you made the tag. You can also add your address or email, but at the very least, write your town/state/country on the back of each tag.
And, most of all, have fun!
