I'm going to try to host a new monthly swap for mini zines (if it gets some interest). I've been getting into them recently and love to see how creative people can be!
Let's spread some amazing zines with this monthly swap series.
In the 1st round of the miniZINE swap you will send a zine made by yourself that has this topic: INSPIRATION.
The craft: a zine A zine is a tiny hand-made magazine. The original zine is reproduced with a photocopier. (see the swap-bot glossary for more details) In this swap we create an 8-page-zine made out of a regular 8 1/2 x 10" sheet of paper.
How to fold and cut the zine is explained here: http://mentalbistro.tumblr.com/post/69609655909/8-pg-zine-from-a-single-sheet-of-paper
To decorate the zine you can write, doodle, paint, mix a collage, use stickers, washi, die cuts, photographs and whatelse comes to your mind. GET CREATIVE and find inspiration online. Postage costs are low, but the effort is high. Create something you would like to receive!
The topic: INSPIRATION. Create a zine about what inspires you (creatively or otherwise) - good or bad. For example a specific artist, quote, picture, your kids, gardening etc. So many possibilities!
The swap requirements: You will have three partners and send each partner one copy of your zine by snail mail.
Your Zine must have a cover page with the theme listed. On the back page make sure you list the swap name and your swap-bot ID. Including anything else in the envelope like a note or extras is nice but not required.Rate your partner a 5, if you have received a INSPIRATION themed zine, no matter, if you like it or not. Try to solve problems together and contact me for help. I will angel, if you have to rate a 1.
