I've always wanted to try new crafts but it's a bit daunting and I really just don't know where to start. I know there are others in the same boat, so doing this swap might help us craft newbies (or not such newbies) expand our horizons!
The idea for this swap is exactly as the title suggests - teach me what you do best. Put together a little package to show your partner a new craft (note down what craft you've not tried or one you'd like to learn more of in your profile, but it's really senders choice, since they are the 'teacher'). The more detailed you can be the better, but the idea is to create an entire DIY pack. So if I was to teach someone to do a scrapbook page, I'd draw a picture - or include a photo - of what the finished product should look like, and put in the pack everything my partner will need to creat it - layout, card, stickers and all (and instructions!). Another example is a dotee doll, you would add a patern, material, thread (probably nothing sharp like pins though...), everything your partner would need to make her. This way we can all try our hand at something new (or not so new) and if we like it, we can continue. I think it'd be a nice idea to show your partner once you've completed it also.
Newbies are welcome, because I am one, but please only people serious about learning and teaching crafts. No flakers please!! I will angel if needed, but in all honesty, you are probably better than me, so hopefully others will be willing to angel also ;) No one's or three's recently without my approval.
This is the first ever swap I've created, so please let me know if I've missed anything, or if there is something I can change to make it better. All input is appreciated.
