I've been hosting these ATC bag swaps to help us circulate our ATCs. Now, I want to get even more bags into circulation, so for this swap you will have two partners. You will send one of them a brand new ATC bag you have made, and you will send the other partner an existing ATC bag you have that was made from someone else

It doesn't matter which partner receives the old and which the new because the objective is just to have more ATC bags in circulation. If you don't have an existing bag, just PM me. I have several and can send you one prior to the swap deadline.

Here's how to start your new one:

Take a small envie and write your name and address on one side of it. On the other side, write instructions such as "take out two ATCs and add three". Have numbered lines for persons who have participated to sign on. Indicate that the last person to sign should send it home. You can include any other instructions, such as whether or not the ATCs should be made by the swapper or if you accept pass alongs. Put your three (or however many you indicated) ATCs inside the envie. I usually start a new bag with a few extras to give the first recipient more from which to choose. This is your ATC bag.

Put the ATC bag (envie) inside another envie to mail to your swap partner.

You will receive a bag from your other partner. You will select ATCs to keep, and add additional ones to the bag. Hold onto the bag until another swap opportunity. Then you will send it along its way.

Any questions? Just post them below!

Since I don't have an old one, is it okay if I make two new ones???

Wenturner71 08/14/2012 #

Yes, or I can send you one if you wish.

Thanks Wendy! I've already got two made up and ready to go. I am so glad I found these swaps, even though in the beginning I had a hard time with the concept! Thanks for hosting!
