Since I joined swap-bot I got hooked on swapping! So for this swap, you have to make an ATC, a handmade postcard and a matchbox incorporating Ernie the Envie in your designs.

ATC as usual standard size (2.5 x 3.5). Include usual details at the back. For the matchbox you can use a real matchbox or use this template.

Fill your matchbox with brads, buttons, ribbons, faux postages or other little embellishments. It may also be swap-bot themed or what you think your partner may use. Anything goes, but make sure you send something you would love to receive.

For your postcards, you can do a collage, doodle or whatever. At the back, write why you love swap-bot and a tip on how you keep track of your swaps. Don't forget to include your name, your swap-bot username, and your email address in your package.

Newbies are welcome with well-filled profile. No recent / unexplained 1's, 3's or no-sends. At least 4.8 rating. Completed at least 3 type 2 or 3 swaps. Flakers will be named so don't sign up unless you are sure you'll deliver.

PS: matchbox is 32ct I reserve the right to ban anyone from this swap.. I will angel if necessary but I hope everyone who will sign up will be responsible enough to send one out back.

hi...sorry if this is a dumb question, but how big of a matchbox are you thinking for this swap?

AmiMelody 01/24/2011 #

hi! I just featured this swap on the Swap-bot blog here!

I am a newbie, can you explain, or show an example of a well filled out profile? Thanks!

nasreen 01/24/2011 #

Awesome Rachel, you are too kind and I think this a really cool idea for a swap because all 3 of my favourite items are in.

Artistic 01/24/2011 #

I'm in but a quick question: The post-card is to be made so the receiver can send it out or is it a PC from one partner to the other?

zigg13pra 01/25/2011 #

Why do you need to include your email in the package that you send?

racheljohnson 01/25/2011 #

I always tell my swappers to include their username and email address... that way if one is illegible, there is still another way to contact the person.

kheidedios 01/25/2011 #

@racheljohnson awww... thanks for featuring this swap on the Swap-bot blog. it really made my day.

kheidedios 01/25/2011 #

@spookygirl a well-filled profile have your info. your favorite crafts, dislike... things like that.

kheidedios 01/25/2011 #

@artistic a PC from one partner to another :))

kheidedios 01/25/2011 #

@amimelody sorry.. its a 32ct matchbox

kheidedios 01/25/2011 #

@zigg13pra as a fellow swapper I want to receive a package from my partner with her details so I can send her a personal thanks.

aviahz 01/26/2011 #

What information is needed on an ATC...I am super new and don't really understand the whole ATC thing...Thanks!!

CometaGuavaberry 01/27/2011 #

This sounds very interesting I´ll join !!

kheidedios 01/28/2011 #

@aviahz normally it includes the title of your ATC, your name/username, date created, swap name. If it's a series/limited edition __ of __ (ex: 1 of 1 or 1 of 12) Here are some useful links: http://www.altered-art.net/make-artist-trading-cards-3.html http://www.etsy.com/listing/19009536/horizontal-atc-artist-trading-card-back http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_BwgWx6KX3xQ/TFVdzBtVucI/AAAAAAAABL0/ylabFXf5tUc/s1600/ATC+-+Amour+Paris+(Back).jpg

Thanks @kheidedios !

Kittyfuzz 02/ 1/2011 #

Oh wow what a brilliant swap. I've never made an ATC or matchbox before so I'll watch until I work out how brave i am :-)

Spookygirl 02/ 2/2011 #

Urgh.. first attempt at making a matchbox was not successful.. Shall we try for #2?

AndrewLips 02/ 2/2011 #

matchbox is 32ct..sorry, what does 32ct mean?

Can't wait to join! AND get postcards from rachel!! yay!!

BeverlyBling 02/ 2/2011 #

32ct has me baffled too. Is it a USA expression?

Sillyna511 02/ 2/2011 #

32ct is short for "32-count". meaning the box holds 32 matchsticks.

beckycreates 02/ 2/2011 #

I am excited about this swap. Can't wait to get creating again.

fairieangel80 02/ 4/2011 #

where do you send the postcard to?

kheidedios 02/ 6/2011 #

@fairieangel80 include your PC in an envie together w/ the ATC and matchbox. that way it wouldn't be lost when your partner receives your creations

Jacquisking 02/10/2011 #

i am so failing with the ATC its harder than it looks to do things in miniture.

CometaGuavaberry 02/10/2011 #

Sent ! I made a fabric postacard !

Artistic 02/18/2011 #

Ultimate items went out to my partner today. Enjoy!

racheljohnson 02/22/2011 #

hi swappers!! I am going to be sending out your bonus Swap-bot goodies this week... look for an orange envelope in the mail!

Artistic 03/15/2011 #

I received the package of swapper goodies yesterday! Love it all, especially the stickers and the buttons. Thanks so much, Rachel!

Ruthshi 04/ 5/2011 #

For some reason, I haven't received mine and Rach's.. hmm. I hope it's not lost.
