For this swap you will be creating 2 mini books for 1 partner.

For these swaps I am going to define a ‘book’ as any form of bound paper. Your book must: -have a front and back cover -have at least 8 pages (or 4 pages front and back.) this does not include the cover -be no smaller that 1” x 1”, and no larger than 2” x 2”

Your books can be blank or decorated, can have text, pictures, art. You can bind pages with thread, a simple staple down the middle, or with an accordion fold or any other way you can think of! Get creative and have fun! This round is free theme and sender’s choice, but it’s always nice to take profiles into consideration. If this swap goes well I would like to do other mini books swaps that are themed.

You don’t have to be the world’s best artist, but please take pride in your craft! Send your partner something that you would like to receive.

To ensure quality and to make sure that everyone gets their stuff, swap participants must have a 4.5 rating or higher. Must have completed at least 5 type 3 swaps. No recent 3’s (just drop me a line explaining it if you do have one.) No 1’s, with or without explanation. Sorry.

Please rate your partner on if they met all the swap requirements, not how much you liked your book or if you think they could have made a better one. I’m going to trust that everyone will do their best and have fun! It’s up to you to determine if you give a heart.

(Also, this is my first time hosting a swap. If I’m missing anything or if there is any confusion/suggestions please let me know!)

Let me know about any questions and Happy Swapping!

I thought of signing up... but what's stopping me is the minimum rating of 4.5 ... There are a lot of people that will not join with that low of a rating.. I personally don't join in unless it is 4.9 just a thought to share. This does sound like a very cute swap.. :D

^ Thanks snowqueen! I will keep that in mind for future swaps. I was unsure of how high to set the rating and actually thought the 4.5 might be too high.

hi, I'm a newbie and have sent (completed) 6 swaps, but only been rated for 4 of them so far as the other 2 are so recently sent I haven't been rated yet. Would I still be eligible to join this swap? No worries if not - I just really liked the sound of it and I'm mad about making books!

ixykix 08/12/2011 #

Ah! I'm ok now - I've been rated for enough swaps :-)

ixykix 08/12/2011 #

Oh dear no I haven't! I'm sorry I realised I haven't done enough type 3's (I've only done 4 of those) so I'll wait to see if there are any more swaps like this one in future!

@ixykix I will gladly do a private swap with you. It will help with your rating and add your type 3 count. PM if you are interested. We can set it up asap :)

@Csquaredcreations - thanks I'll PM you about that :-)

May seem an odd question, but what do you do with these lil books once you receive them? They seem even too small for jotting things down.

Akhenaten 08/20/2011 #

Bups, they are just fun little pieces of art. You can use them for whatever you want, put stickers in them, press tiny flowers, display them, or just collect a bunch.
