I remember being a newbie and starting out, and notice that there aren't as many newbie friendly swaps lately, so I thought this would be a good time to hold a quick washi tape swap. I'm new to washi tape, but have done several swaps here on swap-bot, and it's a lot of fun. :) Since the tape doesn't get bulky or heavy, this will be an International swap. If you're in the USA, it should cost about $1.15 for the 1 oz postage. You will have 1 week from sign up to send by

*You will have 1 partner. You will send 3 washi tape samples to your 1 partner. Please wrap your samples on a shiny surface such as a playing card or something similar so the tapes can easily be removed. (Note, if you use a playing card not plastic coated, please cover it with clear packing tape first so the card design doesn't peel up when you unwrap the tape. If you don't have a playing card, you can use any paper or card stock, cover it with clear tape and you'll be good to go.) *Length of each tape sample should be 18 inches *Please, no tapes from the Dollar store, Target One-Spot, Studio G, etc. Scotch Expressions washi tapes as well as any of the new colorful tapes now your local craft stores are acceptable. Duct tape and plastic-y deco tape is not allowed for this swap. *Please include your name and swap-bot ID inside the envelope. *Please also decorate your mailing envelopes with what else? Washi tapes! On the front! :) *When you receive your swap in the mail, please log in and rate your partner! If you get 3 samples of washi tape in a decorated envelope postmarked by the send by date, you should rate a 5. This is now a profile based swap, so you may get tapes you don't like - you can't rate down for that. If you have questions about rating, or about the swap, please PM me before you sign up.

*Quick recap - 1 partner, 3 washi tape samples (at least 18 inches long) wrapped around a coated card.
-Decorate envelope (at least 75% of front) with washi.
-Include your user name and swap name with the swap -1 week from sign up to send by date

This is newbie friendly. I will check profiles before assigning partners, and you should have a few sections of your profile page filled out - a little about you, your likes, dislikes, hobbies, collections. It's a good rule of thumb to have those sections filled out, and you can change it as time goes on. Established swappers should have a 4.8 rating with no recent (w/in the last 6 months) 1's or 3's. Contact me with questions.

If for some reason you can't send by the send by date, please contact your partner and me. If your partner is in a country other than your own, it may take a few weeks for it to arrive. If you don't receive your swap, contact your partner, and me. I can "angel".

You can leave messages in the 'comments' below, but I will see your questions faster if you send me a PM.
