I've decided to host a swap for washi tape samples!

Washi tapes are tapes made of washi paper, hence translucent and can be torn by hand easily, and they're removable/repositionable.

They are not plastic deco tapes and are not glossy/shiny-looking.

Since this is the first swap I'm hosting, please message or comment below if I have overlooked any details or if anything's not clear.

A big Thank You to @ArtyBeth3 for her tips in hosting! :D

This swap has a very short signup date as I'd like to start swapping asap to try out the whole process of hosting. Hope to have your understanding... :)

Basically, you will send washi tape samples to your partner following each letter in the words I've chosen. I've participated in a few of such swaps and think that they're fun!

For this 1st round, as August is the last month of summer for most swappers here, I've chosen the phrase: FAREWELL, SUMMER!. Therefore, you'll be sending 14 samples, that is, 1 sample for each letter that made up these 2 words.

For example:

F = flowers or frog, A = apple or ant, R = red colour or rain, E = elegant or edgy designs, W = winter or designs with 'WOW' factors... so on so forth... E = elephant or Europe, R = rainbow or rose prints or Rilakkuma!

  • The themes and designs are up to you so long as it starts with the letter (doesn't have to be summer themed).

  • At least 12 inches of tape samples wrapped around playing cards, or smooth surface which doesn't rip the samples when your partners want to use it.

  • This swap is all about having fun choosing samples to go with the letters (sender's choice), so please rate a 5 as long as you received 14 samples even though they might not be what you like, or if you already have some of those designs.

  • However, no 'offensive' themes if your partner has clearly stated they are offended by/ dislike certain themes. For example, avoid sending E = erotic (if this is specified in their profile) or M = Mickey Mouse (if they dislike anything to do with Disney).

  • Other than this swap's name and your username, also write down for each letter of 'FAREWELL, SUMMER!' what the samples stand for, in case it's not obvious why you've chosen that design to go with that letter.

Hopefully we won't get any flakers, and I'll angel only if you have to rate your partner a ' 1 '. Nevertheless, do give your partner some time if she mails on time and communicates promptly as international mail can take a long time.

P/s. The ratings for swappers joining is at least 4.98 with no 1s or 3s in the last 8 months.

So if I drop you from my swaps, it's probably because it's my first time hosting and I just want to be extra careful... No hard feelings in this case, please.

There are a few words for "U", but I may have to "think outside the box." I'm up for the challenge though; good for the brain - LOL!
