Raid your collage materials and stuff a 6x9 envelope with at least 3 ounces of paper stuffs. What kind of paper stuffs? ...

patterned papers
book pages
collage images
die cuts
images from magazines
hand painted papers
stamped images
found images
vintage postage
fancy paper napkins/tissue paper
playing cards ...

Any sort of papery things that can be used in creating collage art: mail art, ATCs, journal pages, glue books, zines, skinnies, etc. Send a variety, not just a bunch of the same thing.

Papers can be folded, ripped, vintage, modern, new or from upcycled sources. This is a sender's choice grab bag. It's a fun way to clear out some things in your stash you know you won't use and get new things you might not have ever come across otherwise.

THAT BEING SAID: please do not send any items that once came into contact with food. I know that might sound weird, but things like empty tea bags and snack packaging could pose a threat to people with allergies (and I've personally received things of this nature in these kinds of swaps 😖). Let's just consider those things off limits.

Requirements to Join

  1. a FULLY filled out profile that includes something about you, not just what you like. Example: Hi my name is Sally. I live in Chicago with my pet toad, Theodore. When I'm not working as a seamstress, I enjoy making mail art and watching Netflix comedy specials with Teddy. <<< simple as that!

  2. Completion of 10 individual package/craft swaps (Type 3 swaps). Multi-partner swaps still count as 1 swap.

  3. At least 3 months continuous swap activity on Swap-bot.

Anyone not meeting these requirements or otherwise setting off red flags (incomplete/fudgey addresses, forum drama, profile mud slinging, crappy rating/swapping practices, etc.) will be removed from the swap.

If you are a well-meaning newbie and would like to participate but don't qualify, PM me and maybe we can do a private swap. My collage stash overfloweth.

Should any participant have a problem sending, message your partner/myself before the send deadline. I will help any way I can and will angel in the event of a flaker (though only after the flaker has been rated properly).

I would suggest sending your packages with tracking, but it's not a requirement. I like using Pirate Ship for these sorts of small packages.
