Do you want more buttons & maybe get some that you could never find in your area? Then this may just be the swap for you.. This swap will be detailed & take some effort so if you have a 1 or a 3 then you will not get to join this time around. And you must have been ratted for at least 5 swaps. This swap is for buttons that are used for sewing, not pin on buttons..
Now for the fun stuff!! I wanted this to be like a Scavenger Hunt, & let us be creative in what we send.
You will have 1 partner and you will send that partner a total of 30 buttons. But you will send the buttons as follows;
4 Purple Buttons, any shade
4 Yellow Buttons, any shade
4 Green Buttons, any shade
4 Blue Buttons , any shade
4 Gold Buttons, any shade
4 Odd Shaped Buttons ie. star, hearts, large oval, ball type buttons
4 Buttons that would match your partners profile, ie. colors, shapes of food, animals.
2 giant buttons, 1in or bigger.
You can start looking for your buttons now and have all of them ready except for the 4 profile buttons, so you will have plenty of time to get this one all ready to go.. You can use any shade of the colors listed and they can have any thing on them as long as the color is in with it. They must be interesting buttons not all solid colors. How ever you can not count one button as two, a gold star is either a gold button or a shaped button. There as to be 30 total buttons. I would put the 4 in each group in a small envie, pocket, what ever and put which group it is falling under. You can find neat buttons all over. I like going to thrift stores and finding a ugly .25 shirt/pants with neat buttons and taken them off to use. You can send your handmade buttons too, as long as they have a spot to put thread threw.. If this goes good there will be others & i will make a craft swap useing buttons after this swap as ended, so be watching for this.
the mini M&M tubes, and small candy tins make good things to put buttons in.
If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know. I hope you enjoy the swap!!
