Fill one small (4"x6"-ish) envelope with 1 ounce of assorted paper goodies for paper crafting and collage art. The papers can be scraps, pictures, hand-cut shapes, die-cuts, stickers, ephemera - if it's paper, it's good! Aim for an interesting variety of sizes, patterns, images, text, textures, styles, etc. You should have at least 15-20 paper things in your envelope. The swap graphic shows 1 oz. of paper things I rounded up; larger image: here.

This is a sender's choice swap. You can begin collecting your paper goodies prior to partner assignment.

If you do not like/use small bits of paper or are picky, this probably isn't the swap for you. This is meant as a random grab bag of papers intended to inspire some creative play.

Please mention the swap title somewhere INSIDE your envelope (on a scrap piece of paper or swap card) so your partner can easily identify the swap and rate you.

Host Notes

This is a USA only swap, open to Swap-bot members in good standing (no recent or unexplained 1 or 3 ratings, no crappy behavior). Unrated newbies are welcome, but you need to have a filled out profile with at least a little blurb about yourself plus some likes/dislikes. Having a filled out profile shows you're paying attention and at least making some effort to participate with the community. ^_^

Upon partner assignment day, I will remove any participants who have not logged in within 48 hours and those who have any unsent swaps on their dash (even a day overdue).

If anything should come up that gets in your way of sending your swap, PLEASE COMMUNICATE - either with me or your partner (or both of us). Should anyone flake, I will angel as soon as the non-sender is given their 1 rating.

Love this but I will be OOT from June 5 to June 12. Please run this again, okay?

stephiedee 05/20/2018 #

@toni - maybe. :) If this one goes well and generates more interest. We could always do a private swap when you're able, too.

sounds good!

Just purged my Ephemera boxes so lots of bits and such. would the random ATC be OK?

stephiedee 05/25/2018 #

@beenebag if you want to include an ATC with your papers, that's fine. I would consider it an extra.

Im not gonna put “paper bomb” on the outside of the envelope, I’m afraid the Post Office would pull it from mail circulation due to it saying bomb. Lol I will definitely put it inside tho. 😊

Fun swap @Lazydaisy0104 so true!!!

aligurl75 06/ 2/2018 #

I was thinking the same thing @LazyDaisy0104 !!

samjowers 06/ 3/2018 #

yeah...not a good idea to put the word "bomb" on the outside of a letter. I think there might even be a legal reason not to...

stephiedee 06/ 3/2018 #

OKIE DOKIE....I have officially updated the description to note listing the swap title INSIDE the envelope somehow...for all those concerned...

Congrats on having the top swap on the site today! It's hard work to run a swap for this many people, you rock!!

@Hell0Z0mbie thanks! Will definitely need to take my time sorting through everybody. I wasn't expecting such a turn out.

@CatNipNinja ha, same here! o_O
