Welcome to the Scrap Sampler swap!

For this swap, you will make one scrap sampler, following the instructions in the video (link posted below). Make your sampler at least 4 x 6. I made mine using a file folder like the lady in the video did. I decorated the front cover of mine, but it's not required.

This is a fun way to trade our papers. I made mine with scrapbook papers, bingo papers, pieces of old maps, songbook pages, etc.

Go ahead and make your sampler ahead of time, as this swap is sender's choice.

USA only.

You can find the video tutorial HERE

That was a very good video tutorial. I like this youtuber.

I love Nik the Booksmith! I have learned so much by watching her videos!

I just realized that I made mine slightly different on the binding. Though I liked Nik the Booksmith's idea, the punched holes would have messed up a number of the pictures on the scrap pages I was sending so I did a different binding technique that I hope my partner doesn't mind. I used the click here for Perfect Binding Technique In this way the scraps could be removed just like a piece of notepaper from a pad that way the rest stayed together and less of the scrap was damaged.

I have made a few of these and I have used washi tape to attach certain images that I didn't want to my partner to have to rip. I've also attached some pieces to a post-it note so the post-it note got the hole, not the paper scrap.

No worries on how you bound the sampler. The video was just an idea. ☺️
