This swap is for all those little scraps of scrap booking paper, embellishments, brads, ribbon etc that you can never find a use for on your atcs or handmade cards. You can also include images for atc or card making or any other kind of scrap booking, card or atc making embellishment.

it all must fit into regular or business sized envelope at minimum. (make sure it is stuffed) extras are encouraged along with giving a heart to anyone who you can see took the time to look at your profile to see what your like. Please don`t send junk. Send your partner nice papers and paper scraps similar to what you would like to receive.

Please don`t forget to add a note or card with the swap name and your user name.

New swappers welcome but you must have a complete profile and no one should have too many swaps on the go. It`s harder to put time into a nice package when you have a million to send out.

hi.. just want to ask some questions since i'm new to this.. i have some scrapbook papers, christmas cards they're new and i'd like to swap them to get something different.. where should i send the package and who will i be in contact with? or i have to wait till the last day to signup? sorry to ask you silly question, because i will have to travel overseas by the 8th of feb so i will have to send the package before :) thank you for your help

Usually partners assigned right after the 4th.... and you can send package before 8th

Yep, what Darida said! The partners will be assigned late on the 4th/early on the 5th and you will have to send it between that date and the 8th.

Was just wondering what the best way is for packaging up the small items inside of the envelope? Such as brads, mini mirrors, etc.. Also am trying to include new full sheets of stickers and things, but don't want to bend them. Would a padded large envelope be best for this? NEWBIE here...sorry..

Also, do you have a weight minimum or maximum?

Hi rainymorning. A padded envelope would work, or you could use some thin cardboard on either side of the goods. As for the size of the envelope, I wouldn't go too large, as this swap is meant to be on the lower end of postage, but a nice mini package.

When I send brads in the mail, I bend the backings so they are flat. They are still perfectly usable when your partner gets them and it saves the other papers from getting scratched up by the sharp corners.

I do not have a weight minimum or maximum. I actually didn't really think about that when I made the swap. I just assume everyone will make a package they would be pleased to receive. It's nice to send a combination of nice items and papers and not candy wrappers or newspaper clippings. From what you mention, it sounds like your package will be lovely! Just try to keep it a combo of things and not all one thing.

I hope this isn't too long winded! I hope you enjoy putting together the package. Take care!
