I was SUPER inspired by MissPickle's Fill It! Project, so with her permission I've created a kawaii version!
In this swap you will have THREE partners that you will send minizines to. This swap is international as you should be able to send your minizine in a standard envelope. All you have to do is print the template, fill it in, make copies, fold and send! Hereâ€™s how it works!
Step 1) Head over to my blog post to read more about this swap and to download the template, or just click HERE to download it and print it out. It is in .pdf format and itâ€™s 8.5 x 11 inches so your standard printer paper should do. If you use A4 as your standard size (8.27 x 11.5), click HERE for the A4 template! NOTE: I tried to make everything line up as best I could but it may still be off so feel free to trim your minizine if it prints funky.
EDIT For a template with cut and fold lines, click here.
Step 2) Draw, paint, collage, and decorate the sheet how you wish, following the guidelines on the template. Be creative! Make it colorful, keep it in black and white, whatever your heart desires.
Step 3) Here you have two options: 1) Make photocopies of the original or 2) Make two more minizines by hand, keeping them the same or make each one different. You decide how much time you want to spend! There is a sticker flake page that would be cuter, in my opinion, to have actual stickers and not a photocopy of them but itâ€™s up to you! So basically you can make photocopies and add stickers last.
Step 5) Send one copy to each of your partners!
Your zine will have 8 pages including the front and back covers. You are more than welcome to embellish the front and back covers as well. This would be a great time to use your piles of deco-tape! Participants who are new to zines are invited to flickr or google â€œmini-zineâ€ to have some pictures/inspirations.
