can anyone join, or do you need to be a member of The Scrapbooking Soceity?

JewelzyBug 09/27/2006 #

Are they clothing buttons or pin-type buttons? (ex. poltical buttons)

user1451 09/27/2006 #

Anyone can join in.

Clothing type buttons for this swap.

When you say "any kind" of button, does this include the flat round "normal" buttons or are your intentions for these buttons to be a little more unique, like teddy bear, angel, fire trucks, etc. buttons? Sounds like a fun exchange.

user1451 10/ 9/2006 #

When I say "any kind", I mean any kind! Whatever you would like to swap, they can be plain or unique, whatever you have. Thanks for asking. :)

Hi, I just joined this swap. Can we also swap button covers for the buttons or is that a totally different swap whatsoever? Thanks, Jessica

evieroz 10/14/2006 #

Can we cut the shanks off before we send them?

user1451 10/15/2006 #

The button covers would be a different type of swap.

You may cut off the shanks before you send them if you'd like.

Oh my goodness. I've hit refresh button a million times in the last hour hoping partners would be available. I am so excited about this swap! My buttons are ready to go!

rowdychik 10/22/2006 #

Buttons are on their way to Deborah in OH, Mariji in the Netherlands, Rachael in PA and Holly in WV! ENJOY!


user4051 10/23/2006 #

My buttons are carded and the envelopes are ready to go out tomorrow (Monday) to Zaffron in Sweden, Sherri in North Carolina, Jewelz in Canada, and fernandinha in Portugal.


user3614 10/23/2006 #

how is everyone sending these? in padded envelopes or regular ones? i'm not sure which to choose but my buttons are picked out ready to go!

Zmrzlina 10/23/2006 #

I sent my in a card inside a regular envelope. I stitched them to a business card from the shop where I bought the buttons, so they aren't running loose in the envelope. Only one was going overseas (I am in the States), but I think it will travel fine because I did tape up the envelope very well.

VelveteenRabbit 10/24/2006 #

Why didn't I think of that? I put mine in a tiny ziploc bag but then they were noisily clinking against each other so I stuffed a piece of scrap fabric in. That worked but the envelope was a bit bulky in the middle. I'll have to think of sewing them to something next time! :)

jennisnyder 10/24/2006 #

tried uploading pic to gallery. don't think it worked. if you want to see what I sent...i sent to hearthheather, BabyBlue, Lurker, and sunnyrc2001. check it out here... http://www.scrapbooksociety.com/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=8946 thx jenni

Zmrzlina 10/24/2006 #

jennisnyder, that is such a clever presentation!

VelveteenRabbit 10/24/2006 #

ACK! That's REALLY nice, jennisnyder. I hope my swap partners will forgive me for the very unimpressive presentation of mine. Plus, I sent some vintage buttons so they don't look as nice and shiny.

Okay, you people are inspiring me! Next swap I participate in, I'm going to do something really nice. :)

RaineyDay 10/25/2006 #

My buttons are heading out tomorrow to Susan in Oregon, fernanda in Portugal, Julie in Canada, and Malin in Sweden. I sent them loose in a padded envelope. I sent a few extra buttons because I have a huge box full. Hope that's okay. :) Enjoy.

Evelynn from MO sent me a fun variety of buttons---the bright orange big button w/ the lt. green heart in the middle makes me smile. THANK YOU!

rowdychik 10/26/2006 #

And I also got 5 pastel buttons from Trish in a tiny little Gerber carrot container (they only had glass jars when my babies ate baby food!!!! ::SIGH::). Thank you very much. Love the colors. ~Cami
