This is a combination of 2 swaps I have seen recently. It gives you a chance to pass on some of those ATC supplies you have been hoarding and will provide you with a little gift each day in December - as well as 3 ATCs to open on Christmas Day.
So here’s the deal: You will have 3 partners. For each partner make up 8 little goodie bags - for example - ATC backs, stickers, a pen, craft papers, buttons, brads, ATC back labels, asst. embellishments, etc. Use your judgement to make them up - don’t just wrap up one sticker and call it a gift. But - one pen might be sufficient for a gift. I really don’t want to put a number of item for each thing you send - just think about what you would like to get. This will be sender’s choice - but it’s always nice to at least check to see what your partner does not like - but let’s not be too picky! As long as you can imagine it being used to make an ATC it should be good.
In addition - make a special ATC for each of your partners to open on Christmas Day. The ATCs should either be Christmas-themed or based on your partners' profiles (for example if they really like music you could make a music themed ATC).
You can make up 3 identical envelopes (except for the ATCs) since you will be sending them to 3 different partners. I am giving you until early November to send - but you can start getting your goodie bags ready now! This should not cost much more than postage as you should destash the supplies you have acquired. If you want to purchase new supplies - maybe you find a great sale - that's cool, too.
Make sure everything is wrapped and be sure to indicate which one is the ATC to be opened on Christmas. It will be up to you to decide which one to open the other days of December. All of this should fit into a 6x9 envelope nicely so shipping shouldn’t be expensive, however I am going to open it internationally.
To recap: You should receive 3 envelopes with 8+1 little wrapped packages for a total of 24 goodies to open during December and 3 ATC’s to open on Christmas.
Hopefully this makes sense. If not leave me a comment here and I will edit it to make it clearer!
I like to be open-minded in not-banning people in swaps - but no unexplained 3’s or 1’s in the last 6 months. I have set the rating filer to 4.7 or higher. I am also opening it to Newbies - but don’t sign up if you are not going to follow through. I don’t want to have to scramble to send out endless angel-envelopes for flakers. And ... if you flake - I will ban you from any future swaps I host!
Rating - since you are not going to open these until December - please rate your partners a 5 if you receive an envelope with 8 little presents + 1 present to open on Christmas (the ATC).
