Description:

UPDATE NOTE: this swap is part one in a many part series so when sending this swap please send on time, and when you get your FB please pass them along quickly (hopefully in part two and so on.. link found at bottom) so we can get the FB'''s passed around and filled out quickly!

my sister just turned me on to these so i thought i would make a swap ok so... A FB is a friendship book, its a small made book that yu send to a pen pal and they add their address and some interests, than that pen pal sends it along to another and so on and so on, when the FB is filled the person who has it sends it back to the owner, the owner than has a book filled with address of people who they can write to and swap with.. its fun and cool,

*so in this swap you will have to make 4 FB's they can be made out of different things it only needs to a few sheets to write on and than pretty it up, there are websites with more info at the bottom-ish of the page

2 will be made for yourself with your address address to return to you when full 1 for partner one with their address so they get it back when full 1 for partner two with their address so they get it back when full

than you will send partner one - an fb for you and an fb for partner two partner two- an fb and the fb for partner one... this way you dont see your fb's from your partners just yet but you get two to put your address on and your interests...

i really hope thats clear. make sure you put your address in the ones you make for your partners so you can get new pals and swappers too!

some info on FB's and some photo's of beautiful FB's ( not needed for this swap, they don't need to be as extrvagant as some you might see here:

international swap because both Fb should fit in a small envelope so it should NOT be expensive.. feel free to send along stickers and tags or something else as a treat for hearts! or if your framiliar with FB's send along a few for hearts.

rating of 4.0 and newbies with a filled out profile please..

happy swapping AndreaSmondria pudding and pie.. sorry i dont know where that came from....

when witting your address don't forget to mention your interests the sites i listed will show you the most commonly used abbreviations but you can specify weather you like things like post cards and stationary and your dislikes if you don't want male or female partners or religious and so forth...

I think this is the cutest Idea ever!! So when you get the books back you should have the 2 you made for yourself and the 2 your partners made for you?? right??

i already made 4 yesterday and it was fun . its my first time that i made a FB . now i only have to wait till its 2 november , to get my partners name`s .

this is really fun

AndreaSmondria 10/11/2007 #

thats totally right sky fire, than you have 4 books filled with adresses of people with a little list of their interests, than you just gotta look through them to find someone who has the same interests as you!

It's probably important to note that those "extravagant FBs" in the pictures are actually decos, and people tend to swap them separately.

AndreaSmondria 10/19/2007 #

yeah, i wanted to keep this simple so i just said fb's.. but thanks!

AndreaSmondria 10/21/2007 #

I have been swapping fbs for over 20 yrs. Please do not use more than a few sheets of paper cause it will take too long to be posted around. Another thing try to make it so it can fit in a envelope without having to fold the crap out of it. Makes it easy to pass and return if everything is written neatly and put the country even if your USA some overseas may not know that. Please make sure your address will be current for several years cause fbs can be out for a long time. Put a email if you have one so maybe they can email you to let you know they are returning it. Hope this helps with making your fb fun and home in one piece. Please rush this is a part of a Swap Group. Good to note in it so people will think twice about sitting on it. Happy swapping everyone.

thanks soo much for all the info they are relatively new to me so the more info the better.

the detentions i used are 3 inches X 4 inches and i put about 6 pieces of parer between a cute cover and a back sheet, i write big so i filled the first side so in total at most 15 people can fill it out. i can fit about 4 in a little envelope and it doesn't cost more than 3 bucks or so to mail.

oh yes and im going edit to make sure people know that there is part two and so on so we can pass them around..

thanks

I may be a bit late rating for this. Sorry! I more thatn likely won't be able to get online from Nov. 9- Nov. 24. But I will rate my partners as soon as I get back. Thanks for not minding, and hopefully I will be able to rate quicker than that!
