You are signing up to participate in a tip-in altered book swap. A tip-in is basically just like book altering, but instead of getting a book with pages to alter – you create pages to put in or to create an altered book. All tip-ins have different size requirements. For this one I would ask that you take an 8 ½ x 11 inch sheet of sturdy cardstock and turn it so that the height is 8 ½ and the width is 11. Fold the sheet across (horizontally) so you have a double page spread. Then alter away!!!

The theme for this swap is “pink".. anything pink from paint to embellishments.. no specific subject matter - that part is up to you. You will have 2 partners and you will need to send one double page spread to each of your partners – and you will receive one back from each of your partners.

I would also like for you to make a signature tag for each of the double page spreads you send out so that if your pages are included in a book the owner can have info on all of the artists. Keep bulky embellishments away from the center of the page, and try to minimize too heavy embellishments.

The ultimate goal would be to have enough pages for an entire book – so I plan on posting more of these swaps.

No one with more than 2 "no sends", please. If you have a low rating, please PM me to explain, or you will not be allowed in this swap. Everyone deserves to receive their tip-ins. Thanks!

how do i make a signature tag?

tntallgal 04/27/2007 #

So I take it that you decorate two pages and do your signature on the back of the pages?

oh ic! Thanks Tntallgal. know what to do now. :>

Actually we usually do a tag or little card of some kind that either fits on the page or that is loose so we can place it where we want in the bound work. Depending on how people bind their books a signature on the back will be permanately covered up. Thanks!

Hi! I am excited for this swap! I some times read into things way to much... I just want to make sure I am clear. I am going to take 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of card stock and turn it so it's 8 1/2 on the sides and 11 on the top and bottom. Then I am going to take the top and make it meet the bottom so I will have two rectangles on top of each other. I just wanted to make sure cause I haven't done a swap like this before. Thanks :) Anna

Yes, you are correct, I usually cut my paper down the middle, it goes into the book easier. If you do your design across the whole paper, the middle part will be buried where you insert it into the book...
