This swap consists of 2 components:

1) Ephemera Stash

Put together an ephemera stash consisting of a minimum of 8 different types of ephemera for 1 assigned partner.

Please do not send multiples of 1 ephemera type and consider it as 5 different types. For eg. Sending 5 different book pages does not qualify as 5 different ephemera but 1.

It does not have to be genuine ephemera. Faux ephemera is fine as well as long as it matches the theme (Think Tim Holtz). For eg. Sending 'Hello Kitty' stickers does not qualify as an ephemera.

Here's a list of ephemera as examples:

  • Ticket Stubs
  • Bank Notes
  • Library Cards
  • Pharmacy Labels
  • Postcards
  • Cigar Box /Matchbox Labels
  • Luggage Tags
  • Stamps
  • Playing Cards
  • Book Pages
  • Magazine & Newspaper Cut outs
  • Maps
  • Coupons/Vouchers
  • Receipts
  • Name Cards
  • Game Tokens
  • Advertisements
  • Bookmarks
  • Catalogues
  • Letters
  • Greeting Cards
  • Pamphlets
  • Certificates
  • Zines
  • Posters

The swap picture is also a great example of ephemera which qualifies.

2) Mail Art

Sent the stash of ephemera in an envelope that is decorated with ephemera themed mail art.

Do remember to include a little note with your username + swap name.

Have fun & happy swapping!

i probably should have asked this earlier, but does this have to be vintage stuff? or are newer items good as well?
