International swap, Open to newbies, if you have a well-thought out and filled in profile. (A good rule of thumb is: when I open your profile page, I should have to scroll down to read it.)

What IS a "Swap Card"?

Whenever you send out a swap, it's really nice to include a little card, identifying yourself, the name of the swap, and when it was sent.

I have received swaps, and had NO idea who had sent it!

These little "notes" - (recycled cards, computer-generated, etc., etc., Are FUN to make, and they can be made of almost ANY materials- from leftover kids' construction papers, to recycled greeting cards! The sky's the limit!

And since they are so much FUN to make, and use up some materials that might not work for other projects (color, size, etc) You can just let your imagination go with these!

SWAP DETAILS: you will have TWO partners (that means you will get two ratings)

and will make for EACH of them, FIVE swap cards.

Yes, that's 10 total! (I was a math teacher, so I know! Heehee)

These can be all different, or all the same.

Be sure to print onto the card, space for the following: Swap Name, My ID, and Date Mailed.

You can print out labels, to attach to the cards, or just write it out, making sure that your partner will have space then, to fill it in, and send with their future swaps.

ALSO, make two more swap cards, filled out for yourself, to send with each swap. Be sure that you include (for yourself): your swapping ID, the name of the swap, your "real" name (just your first name, if you want), and the date it was mailed.

Have some creative FUN with these, and make them adorable and cute! (Well, the adorable part might be optional, but please make them CUTE! 😀

This swap is open to newbies, since they are just starting out, and should know what these little gems are, as well as inspire their swap partners, to include this information about themselves.H

Can we do this Swap in May or later again? I would like to join but I've been so busy lately; i'm not sure I would do a good job by April 30

is there a minimum size it has to be?

gramsbuttonbox 04/19/2016 #

Art freak, no, not really, as long as you're r partner will have room to write the necessary info. Hope that helps

When do we get assigned our partner list. it would be good to know what type of things they like before making the swap cards :-)

Lorie 04/21/2016 #

Nevermind haha, I just found out how to find out, lol. Very new newbie so please have patience with me :-)

I joined this swap without reading it fully and I'm lost about what I'm supposed to do. I'm so confused but I will do my best and send them out

Welcome to all of you, I hope you have fun with this swap.

Partners are randomly assigned by swapbot, no sooner than the day AFTER the swap deadline

I had to moved the dates back, because of a family emergency. Thanks for understanding.
