Wow! 10 swaps, would you believe it? What an amazing feat! So to say thank you to those old and those new to this prolonging swap, I will be sending out 10 special swaps (not including my assigned partner) to 10 random members who join this swap! (One swap to each person!) Want to be one of them? Tell me in the comments below why did you join the swap and what would you like to see in it in the future. Maybe you'll be one of the lucky few! Even if you don't win, Thank you for joining! It wouldn't have happened if it wasn't for you! Happy swapping!

For this swap, you will have to send your partner 3 out of the 18 following categories (You can always send more than 3 of these cagetories if you'd like, but it's not an obligation):

  • 2 Regular, Blank Notecards (2 Mini sized notecards = 1 Regular notecard)


  • 2 Blank Recipe Cards

  • 4 Blank Postcards, Sender's Choice

  • 2 Blank Postcards, Profile Based

  • 3 Washi Tape Samples (14 inches each sample)

  • 2 Sticker Sheets OR 30 Individual Stickers

  • 2 Teabags (Check your partner's profile for allergies and etc.)

  • 1 Small Keychain

  • 1 Memo pad

  • 1 Coaster

  • 20 Address Labels

  • 10 Label Tags

  • 3 Envelopes (No plain white envelopes, please. 2 Mini sized envelopes = 1 Regular envelope)

  • 1 Small Magnet

  • 1 Small Notebook or Notepad

  • 1 Profile Based Item

  • 1 Crafty Item

🎁 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 🎁


  • This is an INTERNATIONAL swap (Meaning that you can get a partner from ANY country in the world. Take that into consideration when calculating your postage expenses.)
  • This is a newbie friendly swap, so I will accept unrated swappers with filled out profiles.
  • No recent or unexplained 1's or 3's (Recent meaning within the last 6 months!)
  • Items you send to your partner must be in an untorn, usable and clean condition! Homemade items are welcome as well, as long as they are in the same pristine condition.
  • Send on time! If for any reason you are going to be late, state it to your partner before the deadline.
  • I reserve the right to remove people or add people at my discretion.
  • Please add a small note to the package with your swap-bot username, the date you sent the package and the name of the swap. You can also add a small message to your partner, it's always nice :)
  • By joining this swap, you are accepting the obligation to rate your partner accordingly as soon as possible to the package's arrival.

If you cannot meet the requirements, DO NOT join the swap. I will be angeling for this swap if required. If I will not be able to angel for a particular reason, I will find you a partner who will angel your package.

Each participant is allowed to comment down below and say 2 items that he or she would prefer not to receive from the list above.

Happy Swapping!

Got any suggestions to add to the item list? Know any flakers on the participants' list? Got some general questions? Contact me on swap bot messages' system.

These swaps are always fun and easy. Would love to do recipe themed swaps.

Bridgette 09/ 2/2017 #

I really love the mystery aspect of this Swap. With it being international, that makes it even better! I just joined SB the end of July and this is my second Flat Surprise so, I would love to participate in more of these!

MalibuStacey 09/ 2/2017 #

I have joined this swap because I love the type 3 package swaps and there are not enough on here that are newbie friendly! so thank you for having a good swap open to newbies that is also international 🤓I also like how you have a list of items it gives me different ideas & I will definitely look out for future swaps 👌

PaperMorsels 09/ 2/2017 #

Agreed! It is so great to have type 3 swaps without super high numbers of completion requirements!

Amyyshantelle 09/ 2/2017 #

I joined this swap because I love sending and swapping stationary, washi tape, stickers and all those cute things to people and hopefully making them happy when they receive them! Thank you for keeping this open to newbies on this site! X

Lina279 09/ 3/2017 #

Hi everybody! I've joined this swap because I love the variety of goods sent)))

I would kindly ask my swap patner not to send me notecards)Everything else is highly welcome)

CavalierCommunications 09/ 3/2017 #

I joined this swap because it is my favourite kind of swap. There's plenty of choice of what I can send, so I really enjoy putting together a good envelope full of goodies. I actually think it's perfect already so I don't have any suggestions of changes.

LaurenPappas 09/ 3/2017 #

I join these swaps because I enjoy sending happy mail to people. I enjoy seeing what others like to send and sending things that make others happy. It's always a fun and mysterious envelope!

CANNEKCUL 09/ 3/2017 #

No keychains or refrigerator magnets please.

yukikumo2005 09/ 3/2017 #

I'm new to swapbot and have joined a few swaps. Am eagerly waiting for some of the happy mail on the way to me. I joined this swap because I am so happy to be able to "meet" so many people with the same interest of wanting to send mail and receive happy mail.

Love all the items listed above except for 1. Magnets 2. Key chains 3. Coasters

Thanks! :)

Ruie 09/ 3/2017 #

I joined this swap because I have a major passion for swapping, snail mailing and I love collecting items from all over the world. It gives me a chance to collect more items without having to worry about cost for buying a whole item. Swaps like this gives us all that opportunity

No address labels or recipe cards

lawchick 09/ 3/2017 #

Every time I've joined this swap I've found that my partners send awesome, quality items--the kind of stuff any swapper would be happy to receive. But more than that, I love putting together my Flat Surprise for mailing, so I'm back! You've really covered every type of flat goodie someone could possibly send..the only think I can think of not on the list are die cuts (though that fits under the category of Crafty Item). :)

Break42 09/ 3/2017 #

I joined this to start branching out of postcards and letters, and the list you have makes an excellent guide! And I would love to see a food or animal themed swap in the future like this.

fbresnah 09/ 3/2017 #

I am open to anything except recipe cards or tea bags.

Marybean 09/ 3/2017 #

I'd love to see more type 3 international swaps for odds and ends or a variety of things. I joined because I love crafting and making things for people and it's nice to get some new items to work with that I can't get here :)

Jeanellen 09/ 4/2017 #

I have only recently joined Swap Bot but I am really enjoying my experiences so far and cannot wait to see what Swaps pop up in the future! The reason I joined this swap, in particular, is because I loved the variety of options you came up with! It provides so much room for creativity and there is something for everyone. In the future, I would love to see the same swap with the same options but under a theme like space and galaxies! Thank you for this amazing opportunity, looking forward to it! :)

B3unhinged 09/ 4/2017 #

I took part in this swap last month and I was really excited to get the swap so I was really happy to see it again! I would like to see candy, personalised items and bookmarks included in this swap.

roxymtl 09/ 4/2017 #

I joined this swap because I like to give away and make people happy with the cute tresories I find out in stores !

THarkness82 09/ 4/2017 #

I'm new to swapbot and have only completed one swap so far....but I loved the experience so much that I've now signed up for 4 more, and one is recurring monthly! This is such a fantastic way for like-minded people to keep snail mail/happy mail alive. What I like most is not only seeing what others are attracted to visually (colors and styles they choose) and receiving things I may not have access to or may not have chosen for myself, but the most fun for me comes in sending things to others. I love it so much! I try to send a variety of things because I know not everyone likes everything they receive, and that's 100% OK! As for myself, all I ask is that I please do not get sent any address labels, I'll never use them, lol. I'm so eager to send my package out that I'm already done with it...just waiting for a partner to send it to! 😁 If anyone is interested in what I'd personally like to receive, feel free to check my profile. Sorry this was so long.....I may be a tad excited.😆

karenc5079 09/ 4/2017 #

These are the coolest swaps because it always more important to me to try and please my partner. I spend a lot of time looking through my stash to find just the right items to send.

Hugsie86 09/ 4/2017 #

I just joined this swap because it is one of my favorites on Swap-Bot. I like the mysterious side of the swap, since you never know what you will get, and I like preparing my envelope based on what my partner likes (at least, I try my best to send things they like!).

HilC 09/ 4/2017 #

This is my absolute FAVOURITE kind of swap. I love taking a look at my partners profile and then looking through my things to find things that I think they will love. I just adore putting together happy mail for others! Thank you so much for hosting :).

NiniJae 09/ 4/2017 #

I joined Swap-Bot only about a week ago, so I'm signing up for different types of swaps to try them out. Thanks for hosting!

Fenix825 09/ 5/2017 #

@LadySunshine I joined this swap because it's so super fun to get a chance to surprise someone with a thoughtful envelope. I love that it's open to newbies and that we get a chance to get people excited about swapping here! Swap-Bot is such an amazing community because of swap hosts like you!

For this swap, I would prefer not to receive: 2 Blank Recipe Cards or 1 Coaster.

bluesky 09/ 5/2017 #

LadySunshine 09/ 5/2017 #

No label tags or recipe cards please!

piashlara 09/ 5/2017 #

I did join the swap because there were a lot of options to choose from on what to send. I also like that it's flat - my wallet will be my friend :D
