Description:

I think these are so cool and a perfect for swapping! They are made from ONE sheet of 12x12 paper, and they are really simple to create. Are you up for the challenge?

For this international swap you will create a minibook as described in the tutorial here or here . I have included both a video tutorial as well as text/picture based one. These are commonly called "maze books," so if these tutorials don't work for you, there are many others out there.

One of the features about this book I really like, are the pockets. When completed the book will have three little spots to stuff things inside. You will need to fill up your little book with goodies for your partner. Some ideas: mini envies filled with stickers, postage or used stamps, a mini zine, tags, atcs or anything your partner may find "cool." As far as subject matter/theme for the book, it is senders choice, however profiles can be inspirational too!

I have posted picures of the mini I made on my Flickr and my blog.

This swap is open to all group members in good swap standing. I will check profiles and will contact you if your profile indicates that you have fallen below the ZMACS standards. I will also check for recent log in!!!

If you have any questions feel free to post below. This is a great little project and I think it will be a fun swap!
