I'm hosting a total of three:
It's Monthly Sticker Bag Swap time! Let's pull out those bags and get them out and going!
You will have 3 partners. To each of your partners, you'll send 4 (four) sticker bags. These can be "homers" (ones you send back to the sticker bag maker after you sign the last spot), starters (no signers yet - new bags) or established bags. Please do not send to the maker of the bag. Please do not send to someone who's already signed or passed on it. If this means you have to make new ones, please do so. You will be sending out a total of 12 bags. This IS an International Swap.
To make a sticker bag you get a envelope, put a note on it as to who made it, who it is for (if it's made for you and for you put made by and for and list your name.) the address and email of who it is for, your instructions and somewhere for the people to sign.
I have a sticker bag template, made by @rattissia made, that people are welcome to use. It can be found at Sticker bag template
I have made my envelopes from printed templates, scrapbook paper. I've seen them in regular envelopes, small kawaii-type envelopes and even actual plastic baggies. There is no set rule as long as the necessary information is on each bag.
Here is the example of what to put on your envelope:
Made for and by:
Please take # stickers and put in # stickers. After # signers please send home.
(Usually on back so people can have room.) Please sign and date. "Please send home after # signers."
I usually put take out 4 stickers and put in 8. As for the amount of signers I like putting 5. Put as many as you want, as long as you realize that they need some room to sign. You can also add other rules. I usually say no reward stickers or tiny stickers. Your bag, your rules. The more signers you invite, the longer they take to get home. :)
I like to start my bag with double the amount I ask them to take.... Since I say "take 4", I start with 8 stickers. I make sure that all starting stickers (and stickers I put in other bags) are all different so that people have a variety to choose from.
Please make sure that you're using the proper amount of postage. It's very annoying to receive a parcel that has "Postage due" on it. In fact, if you ever receive a swap from me marked "Postage Due", please contact me right away so that I can fix it.
Please message me or comment with any questions you might have, I am MORE THAN HAPPY to answer if I can. The more swappers, the merrier!!!
