No Sticker Slapping...No Sticker slapping...Well sometimes I just feel like slapping a sticker. So for this swap you will be required to do some sticker slapping. : )

alt text This swap will be for an envelope decorated with nothing but Stickers and markers. Sticker slapping is strongly suggested and in fact encouraged.

Basic Requirements:

  • 1 Sticker Slapped & Marker Decorated Envie - (No mini or tiny envelopes allowed...must be mailable size)

  • 1 flat surprise: Sender's Choice and the choices are limitless, but some tried & true suggestions are: (New Full Sheet of Stickers, - New Store Bought Note Card, - New Store Bought Postcard)

  • Include your name, your Swap-Bot User Name and the Swap Name in the envie. (A message is not required, but it is always nice)

alt text I am setting a rating requirement of 4.97.

alt text I will allow unrated swappers with completely filled out profiles.

alt text I reserve the right to remove anyone from this swap for any reason.

alt text I always angel any swap I host. (After you have rated your partner a 1). However; please be assured that I will review any swapper that joins and remove throughout as the dead line approaches. I also will make one last sweep through everyone, prior to actually assigning partners.

alt text If you have any questions/concerns/comments please PM me. If you comment below, please PM (or post on my profile as well), just to let me know you left me a comment.

alt text I fully support FOPS.

Finally a fun slapping swap! Thank you for hosting.

Paige1900 07/23/2013 #

LOL....You are very welcome. Thank you for joining. : )

TerryF 07/24/2013 #

What fun Paige!

Just a note: Angeling will only happen after the partner has been rated a 1, right? (";)

Paige1900 07/24/2013 #

♥ @TerryF - You are 100% correct...in order to receive an angel from me, you MUST rate your partner a "1".

LizzyJo 07/29/2013 #

What a fun swap! Thanks, Paige.

betty194 07/30/2013 #

Do sorry for asking such a stupid question. Whast does "marker" mean?

choke 07/30/2013 #

@betty194 - These are examples of markers:

They are usually used for coloring or drawing. I hope this helps!

betty194 07/31/2013 #

@choke thank you :)! So we should use stickers and then markers for drawing, make doodles or anything like that?

Paige1900 07/31/2013 #

Thanks @choke : )

And yes, you can use markers and stickers to decorate...doodle or whatever...this is just a real fun and no stress swap for those of us that like to color outside the lines sometimes. No artistical ability is required....only the ability to relax and have fun. : ) (Oh and slap stickers of course)

betty194 07/31/2013 #

Thanks @Paige I don´t know why the Markers confused me so much :D.

TerryF 08/ 2/2013 #

Maybe this will help. (";)

A marker pen, marking pen, felt-tip pen, flow, marker or texta (in Australia and New Zealand), is a pen which has its own ink-source, and usually a tip made of a porous, pressed fibers such as felt.

choke 08/ 5/2013 #

Yeah, you made it in the top ten!

Paige1900 08/ 5/2013 #

LOL...Thanks to all of y'all.

KraftyKaren 08/ 6/2013 #

Haha. Excellent swap idea. :-) Just curiously though what is FOPS?

Paige1900 08/ 6/2013 #

Flakers and Other Problem Swappers. Best group on Swap-Bot for weeding out flakers, non-raters, and general problem swappers. :)

Eruwen 08/ 8/2013 #

Oh fun swap! :)

Kaatii 08/ 8/2013 #

So... This may be a silly question, but do we use the decorated envelope to send the rest of the stuff, or does the decorated envelope go into another envelope so the person i send it to can use it another time? Sorry, I'm brand new here and trying to figure things out :)

Eruwen 08/ 8/2013 #

@Kaatii I was actually wondering that too! I assume it's the latter, since it says "must be mailable size"...

Paige1900 08/ 8/2013 #

Not a silly question at all. Mail-Art is the actual envelope that is sent through the mail. It will be the envelope that hold the flat surprise. So you will address/mail the envelope that you decorate with the stickers and markers. And yes that is why it must be mailable size.

I hope this answers the question...and please never be hesitant to ask a question for one of my swaps, 9 times out of 10 someone else is wondering the same thing. In this case @Eurwen was wondering. : - )

Kaatii 08/ 8/2013 #

Thank you for the answer on my question Paige :) Unfortunately I already joined 4 swaps and I'm still new, so... Maybe next time?

JoanneWong 08/10/2013 #

A newbie who can't wait to start sticker slappin! :)

smadronia 08/11/2013 #

I think I just made the ugliest envelope ever

Eruwen 08/11/2013 #

Thank you Paige for your answer! Much appreciated :)

Paige1900 08/11/2013 #

@Eruwen you are very welcome.

@smadronia - would love to see a picture of the most ugliest envie ever...

smadronia 08/12/2013 #

Sadly, I dropped it in the mail today without photos. I'll message my partner and see if she'll take photos

KogeLiz 08/12/2013 #

@smadronia - lol! I wish I was your send-to partner!

Paige1900 08/13/2013 #

: )

nermalski 08/13/2013 #

Hopefully I did okay on mine. Went in the mail today.

shannonlinde 08/13/2013 #

Hello! I am SO SO excited!! I just took my package downstairs to the post office and can't wait for my partner to get it! Are we supposed to message our partner to be on the lookout? Thanks! This is my first swap!! :) Shannon

VivaLaDiane 08/15/2013 #


If no one has answered you yet, no you don't. You marking "Sent" is a good indicator to your partner and the swap host that you've done so.

I've already gotten my swap and had a totally amazing and very beautiful partner who really made my day. Thanks Jess. Err... @nermalski ♥

shannonlinde 08/19/2013 #

Thanks, Viva LaDiane!! I am hoping my partner got my package! I am thinking by now it should have arrived. I bet the postman/woman will have so much fun delivering our super artsy envelopes! What a great swap this is!

xxkarenlxx 08/21/2013 #

I wish I'd seen this while sign ups were open. This is how I decorate my friends birthday cards. I love finding tiny stickers to slap in those teeny areas and trying to see how little white I can leave showing.

Maybe next time. Hope it was a fabulous swap!
