I'm always looking for new washi samples and I thought this swap would change up the washi trading game a little bit.

For this swap you will send one partner 10 washi samples, 15 inches/ 40 cm each. The washis must match the following categories:

  1. A solid color (no patterns and no glitter)

  2. an animal design ("illustrations" of animals or animal print)

  3. stripes

  4. polka dots

  5. floral/botanical design

  6. geometric design (e.g. grids, triangles, squares, but no dots)

  7. any random items (e.g. food, gardening tools, whatever you have :D - but please no animals and no botanicals)

  8. metallic-foiled (e.g. gold, silver - doesn't have to be solid metallics, can be metallic details, e.g. stars)

  9. and 10. are sender's choice

Please no recent unexplained 1s or 3s - I will change all profiles and will ban at my own discretion. Newbies are welcome with a well filled out profile. I can angel if needed, but hope there won't be a need :)

animal design- is it print OR an animal?

ablev92 05/13/2019 #

For solid color you said no patterns but is glitter ok?

paperboats9 05/14/2019 #

@UnicortopiaCreations It can be either - I had originally specified to send animal designs but I think animal prints actually are more common, so feel free to use either :)

@ablev92 I would consider glitter tape its own "category" so I would kindly say no to glitter as "solid color". But you are of course welcome to send a glitter washi for 9 or 10 :)

ablev92 05/14/2019 #

ok thank you :)

ablev92 05/14/2019 #

I don't think I have plain solid. I guess this is an excuse to buy some lol

@ablev92 - Sorry about that :D Enjoy washi tape shopping!

@thebragal I made one of the Washi organizers today super easy. Need hot glue wooden skewers and clothespins
