Open to Newbies, this is an International Swap
What IS a "swap card?"
Whenever you send out a swap, it's really nice to include a little "blip" - listing who sent it, the name of the swap, and even the date it was mailed.
These little "notes" - - (recycled cards/computer generated/embellished/ etc, etc,) "cards - are fun to make, and they can use almost ANY materials, from leftover kid's construction paper, to recycled greeting cards - the sky's the limit!
I've even seen some OH SO darling ones, using those round paper key tags!
And since they are so much FUN to make, and use some craft materials that may not be "suitable" (size, color etc) for other projects, you can just "let go" with them.
You will have TWO partners, and will make for each of them, SEVEN swap cards. (Yes, that's 14 total) - these can be all different, or all the same.
(I was a math teacher for years, and wanted to see if you were paying attention - haha- -)
Yes, that's right, fourteen swap cards. Go ahead and make more, but the reason the number is 14, is that (on my printer), typing one sheet of these "labels", there's room for seven of them, on one side of the paper - then you can turn over the sheet, and run it through again for the other partner.
You can print out "labels" to attach to them, with the info filled out for your partner's swap id, and first name (if you know it), or leave the name blank. (You WILL know your partner's swap id, so that should be included.)
Include ALSO the "swap name" and "date mailed" that they can fill in, and send them off in their future swaps.
Have some creative FUN with these, and make them adorable and cute! (well, the adorable part may be optional, but please let's be sure they are all CUTE!
I'm giving a month to make these, tho you probably won't need that much time - these little things are FUN to make and pretty addictive, so be careful!
This swap is open to newbies, since they are just starting out, and might want to know what these little gems are like -
It is also international, since they should be pretty small, and easy to mail.
Any questions, message me here, or privately, and I'll get to ya right away.
