In this swap you will be sending 8 washi samples at least 18 inches long to two partners for a total of 16 samples.

The samples don't have to be unique to each partner.

If you don't have 8 different washi, double up on the length and call it even.

The washi is sender's choice, but it's you can always check out your partner's profile for ideas!

Wrap the washi around a flat surface which it will not stick to. New playing cards work well.

Wrapping the washi around the long part (3.5 inches) of a playing card 6 or 7 times will be about 18 inches of washi.

I suggest cutting your surface of choice down to 2 inches so the math is easier and you don't have to actually measure the sticky washi.

This swap is open to new users with no ratings, but you must have a filled-out profile. I will be checking!

I will angel if necessary

Can I use thick plastic from packaging, or wax paper to wind around?

I would not used waxed paper. The flat sides of (washed) plastic milk jugs are good. I save up the credit card sized plastic "gift cards" and "coupons" that come stuck in junk mail.

playing cards work good too

My plastic washi samplers won't be arriving nearly as quick as I'd have liked them to so I used waxed cardboard. It's not too bad - I've had washi samples arrive on waxed cardboard and they've held up just fine so far.

Just add a sturdy piece of cardboard to hold the envelope straight for better support while in transit. That said, if you'd prefer to use cardboard, playing cards are the best.
