@snailmaillover had a similar swap over here but it is USA only, so she graciously allowed me to create an International one for all the ribbon lovers out there.

This one is not copy + pasted from @snailmaillover 's one and has a few differences

In this swap, you will send your two partners 10 pieces of ribbon in an envelope, each at least 15cm (6") and they all need to be different. If you want to send two of the same, then rather have a 30cm (12").

So that's either 10 x 15cm (6") or 5 x 30 cm (12"), or a mixture of the two... and each ribbon has to be different.

You'll have two partners and although not necessary, it would be nice to have a look at their profiles and spot favourite colours/themes.

All types of ribbon are welcome; satin, grosgrain, velvet, organza, gingham, fat, skinny, patterned, plain, lace... anything:]

Newbies are welcome, but mail me first or leave a comment below to promise me that you will send. I will be going through all profiles before assigning partners, of course. I will angel this if you have been flaked...

Any questions, mail me. I'm very excited for this swap !

bitingcow 09/ 9/2009 #

I'm so excited can't waittttttt to meet my swap partner!!

AlanaLee 09/ 9/2009 #

I am new but I promise to complete the swap on time and not flake. I am desparate to do my first swap so PLEASE don't kick me off.

cleopatra 09/ 9/2009 #

@bitingcow I'm so glad someone shares my excitement ! ... I cannot WAIT to get my partner so I can choose some ribbons for her.♥

@AlanaLee ... I'd love to have you in the swap:)

To everyone: What do you say to changing the number of swap partners to 2 instead of 1...? It's a very light swap, postage isn't too high, even international, and that way you'd get a bit of a range of ribbons back...

Up to you guys though !

AlanaLee 09/ 9/2009 #

No problem with 2 partners. I'm looking forward to it. Going ribbon shopping tomorrow.

smilingloz 09/10/2009 #

missanne 09/10/2009 #

I cannot wait to get started with this swap- I don't want to be a newbie for much longer ;)

irev 09/10/2009 #

I too want 2 partners. It is an easy exchange, at me it is a lot of ribbons and I with pleasure will exchange with others. Give me 2 partners.

Twylabug 09/10/2009 #

I would love to do this. I'd even take on 2 partners. But how do I contact you to promise that I'll follow through?

Mistuk 09/11/2009 #

cleopatra 09/11/2009 #

Hi I'm VERY new but I really want to join in! My daughter has been on Swapbot for some time and has gotten me interested. I do a lot of assemblage art and scrapbooking with genealogy. Please can I join?? :)

yinlim 09/13/2009 #

Hi I just registered and I'm new in swapping gifts..while waiting for the assigned partners, can someone tell me what kind of postage are everyone using? registered post? or the normal mailing?

yinlim 09/13/2009 #

Hi Cleopatra,

I can't find anywhere in ur profile to email u..i still figuring around in Swap Bot..i'm so lost in finding information on the procedures to find partners shy

cleopatra 09/13/2009 #

Every newbie who leaves a comment on this swap page promising to swap is allowed to join this swap. I won't ban you. But remember, by asking to join, you are promising to send. If you cannot send your package by the Send By date please drop from the swap

Newbies (those with less than 5 mailed swaps) who have not contacted me by the time of the Sign Up date will be banned. Flakers too.

This is such an easy, low cost swap that has the potential to make your partner's very happy.

yinlim 09/13/2009 #

Hi Cleopatra..i'm promise to send the swap accordingly...:) but who will be my partner in exchange? i'm excited to search for nice ribbons now ^__^

cleopatra 09/13/2009 #

@yinlim You will find out who your partners are on the 15th:)

sweetypiedie 09/13/2009 #

If there are now two partners it may be good to change that bit in there that says you will only have 1 partner. I'm joining later and it's lucky I read through all the comments first or I would not have know.

reniscreamer 09/13/2009 #

I solemnly swear to NOT FLAKE...I love Ribbon...I have a ton to share and some cutie stuff too!! PLEASE LET ME JOIN!!!

reniscreamer 09/13/2009 #

I can't figure out this whole site...I am looking for a CONTACT you button to say hi and promise AGAIN I will not flake...but I can not find one...I am very new and have no profile...but I do on FACEBOOK..does that count??? Do I understadn we will mail to 2 people each IF I AM ALLOWED TO JOIN????

cleopatra 09/13/2009 #

Thanks @sweetypiedie @reniscreamer I'm going to mail you now and help you out:)

KimmieSC 09/13/2009 #

Hi! I've only had 3 swaps (all rated 5) so I wanted to post and promise that I will send my swap packages to my partners on time. I have a lot of unusual ribbons and hope they will be very happy with the selection I will pick for them! I'm very excited to join this swap! :) Thanks and have a great day everyone!

AmandaMarieYA 09/13/2009 #

ME and my cousins used to do this, im new so will it be ok if i send the ribbon in a letter envelope?

yinlim 09/13/2009 #

Yay! Thanks Cleopatra...am looking forward to know who will be my partners!

UberKutie 09/13/2009 #

What? Wasn't it only ONE partner before? D: TT.TT

cleopatra 09/14/2009 #

If it fits in an envelope, then sure, why not ? Just make sure to cover the envelope properly so that any prying postal hands cannot find their way inside.

@UberKutie it was one partner, but it was changed to 2 now. It's nice to get a bit of diversity in a swap:)

marliese 09/14/2009 #

Just a post to show my commitment!

I was going to take it easy on the number of swaps I am in but I can't let this one pass, wonderful! I am off to check my ribbon stash right now. :)

Doucepoints 09/14/2009 #

Hi Cleopatra, I love ribbons!!! I would love to join this swap eventhough it is last minute! I will send!!

papercaper 09/14/2009 #

I'm a newbie who will not flake out. Did I make it within the deadline to sign up?

simplyhippie 09/14/2009 #

I promise I'm not going to flake - if there's anything I have, it's ribbon! ♥

simplyhippie 09/14/2009 #

Hi Cleopatra! I tried to message you back and it wouldn't let me - I updated my profile for you.

karenchristine13 09/14/2009 #

I love love love ribbon and have tons of it. I promise to swap, I am so not a flaker. Please please accept me for this swap.

karenchristine13 09/14/2009 #

did i mention that i'm excited?

Pepperwood 09/14/2009 #

This is my first swap-bot swap. I have swapped a couple of times on Scrapping Swaps. I really like the fact that this site has feedback to help minimize flaking. I was flaked on once (and ignored by the host), so I know how disappointing it can be. I promise not to flake!

cleopatra 09/14/2009 #

Yay @karenchristine13 ! Me toooooo

xerxia 09/14/2009 #

I'm sort of a newbie though I swap a lot on another board :) I loooove ribbon and would love to share some of my stash!

marliese 09/15/2009 #

Mine are out! So excited! Fun & easy! :D

cleopatra 09/15/2009 #

Partners have been assigned !

I hope no one will be flaked on, but if you are, I will hunt the flaker down and then either I or the amazing @ThreadTheLove will angel this swap for you.

Happy swapping !

yinlim 09/15/2009 #

Yay! Time to check out their profiles...^__^

reniscreamer 09/15/2009 #

I am soooo excited!! I will get my packages ready tonight!!! YAY!!!!

simplyhippie 09/21/2009 #

Hello! I just wanted to let everybody know that while I did put my packages in the mailbox Saturday, they probably won't go out until Wednesday at the earliest. My entire little city is underwater - Red Cross is setting up a shelter and everything...I blogged about it earlier today (blog is on my profile). First time I'm glad I live in a 4th floor apartment.
