This is the first group swap I'm hosting and I'm kind of nervous about it but I'll try my very best to be a good host! :)

This is a fun swap for all the crafty Harajuku Girls inspired by a public swap I participated in a while ago hosted by @marcsgrl

You are going to send three handmade items to one partner. All items HAVE to be handmade (by you and not by anyone else, that wouldn't be fun, would it?)

Here's what you are going to send:

*1. A handmade plushie - can be made from felt / fabric or an amigurumi or whatever you're good at! But it must be kawaii and cute!

*2. A Fashion item - can be jewelry, a cute keychain, a decoden item, a cellphone charm etc. It CAN be completely handmade like with polymer clay, but you can also make a beaded necklace or use cute pendants and turn them into a pretty piece of jewelry. I know that not everybody is that talented in making things from scratch so items that have been altered, put together or decorated are allowed here, you must however put your heart into creating something pretty and Harajuku style that your partner can actually wear or use! Please don't take a bead, put it onto a necklace and call it done, that's not what this group is about!

*3 A paper item like a handrawn postcard, a nice bookmark, a decorated matchbox, a fridge magnet, an ATC (if your partner is into ATCs), a decorated journal or whatever crosses your mind. Paper should be a part of the item but doesn't have to be the main component. Be creative and have fun!

I'm giving you a whole month to sending out this swap since crafting can be time consuming and you are supposed to make this package extra special and nice! The items sent are sender's choice, you must however check your partner's profile and please don't send anything your partner dislikes (for example don't make a Hello Kitty plushie if your partner doesn't like Hello Kitty or don't send an ATC if your partner doesn't want any! Pretty simple, isn't it? :) )

This swap is open to all group members with a rating of at least 4,9, three mailed and rated package/type 3 swaps under your belt and a well filled out profile. There is no Dollar amount on this, just send something you would love to receive.

If there are certain things your partner should know (e.g. nickel allergy, ears not pierced) please comment below.

This swap is for handmade items only, so please don't join if you know that you are not crafty enough to create the required items our if you expect to receive brand-only kawaii items!

Moreover, be aware that this is an international swap and shipping might be expensive, you can find a thread with links to shipping calculators of many countries here.

Let's make this a fun Harajuku style swap were you can be creative and make something nice that your partner will love!

If you have any questions feel free to comment below or write me a message! :)

I am going to have to drop this swap for now. I am super disappointed but my car broke down and we are having to buy a new one so the next month is going to be crazy and I am afraid I won't have the time to make anything. I hope you guys have fun.
