Hello there and welcome to first THE UPCYCLED BOOKMARK PROJECT swap! This will become an almost monthly swap. Anyone is welcome to join, but please don't flake.
For this round you will be sending your 2 partners 4 upcycled bookmarks apiece with a solid month to get them done. So that will mean 8 bookmarks to make or more if you wish. These can be made from such things as cereal boxes, tissue boxes, and the like. There is no need to make these profile related because your job as the "sent to" partner is to release these into the world. A good place to leave them is in books at the library, but i have also left them with tips for waitresses. I would love to see other ideas for leave behind places below. Feel free to keep one if you love it though! There are no size or style requirements what-so-ever, but make them appealing enough that someone would want to pick it up if they found it. there are a few little requirements and they are as follows....
For example, I make a little tag that says Barilla Pasta Box upcycled by Linn Anne Strayer AKA RainbowSplatter in New Virginia, Iowa, USA. i paste it on the back on the bottom. Anything else you want to add, like a quote or the date, feel free!
ONE LAST BUT VERY IMPORTANT REQUIREMENT! Please put somewhere on it something along the lines of, "View more of THE UPCYCLED BOOKMARK PROJECT on flickr.com". What is this, you may ask? Well, i will be starting a 2 part flickr pool for THE UPCYCLED BOOKMARK PROJCET to serve as an archive. One will be called "Released" and one will be the "Kept and Found" pool. It isn't required because some may not have a camera or Flickr account, but it would be AWESOME for those who can to upload pics of the ones they have made into the "Released" pool. If you decide to keep any you are sent, I would be more than grateful if you upload a pic into "Kept and Found" and title it with where the bookmark ended up. It is my hope that when they are found, people will go to Flickr to see more and upload pics with a title of where they were found! Who knows if that is what will happen, but it would be AMAZING if it did. I haven't started the "Kept and Found" pool yet, but there is a link to the "Released" Flickr pool about 12 posts down in the comments area. I am still in search of my camera battery charger, so there isn't much there yet, but @TC has put some cute ones up. :) A special thanks to her for doing that so quickly!
I had to change the dates one last time because I wouldn't be around to assign partners on time. I promise I will not be changing anything after this!
Okay, if there are any questions, suggestions, or feedback of ANY sort, please post below. Let's save some trash from the landfill and release some functional art into the world!
