The original host of this swap series @LauRad83 hasnโ€™t been around Swap-Bot in quite a while so.! And the other person that was hosting it was also @PrettyAlice but I saw that she was taking a break. With that being said letโ€™s get these notebooks moving again

If you have a book from the previous swap fill it out and send it to your partner. For new participants read below.

To start, find a small soft cover book about A5 size (5x7 inches). Something like a travel notebook inserts with about 30 pages should work perfectly. The book should not be too thick or heavy and please no spiral books. Think about the weight of the book and the cost of sending it.

The first person starting the book will decorate the cover however they choose, wallpaper, wrapping paper, anything you like.

Inside the front cover write your name, address (so the book is returned when it is full) swap name and your swap-bot username.

On a page or 2 write a bit about your day, your location, something about the weather, whatever. You may decorate the page if you wish. Add a photo, a drawing if you wish, and tape in with washi or clear tape. Use only pens that do not bleed onto the next page, please. Don't forget to date your entry. You may add something separate for your partner if you wish, a pen pal intro letter or something else related to their likes, but you don't have to. Also, write your swapbot ID so you can be rated.

When you are done with your page send the book onto your partner.

That partner will then wait for the next swap in this series and fill out their page(s) and send on to their partner and so on.

Once the book is full the last person to write in the book will send it to the owner of the book, and start a new book

The whole process then starts again.

At the end when your book is returned to you, you will have a book full of stories from around the country.

Please allow plenty of time to receive and send the book. This swap will take commitment to subsequent swaps in this series. If you don't plan on continuing with later swaps please don't join. I'm sorry but this is supposed to be fun.

Any questions please message me

Please keep the books to A5 or smaller and no heavy hardcover books please. Be considerate of others who will have to pay for postage to send the book in each round.

Okay, question. This is the first time I am doing this Swap. I just finished decorating my notebook and I am really happy with how it turned out, but I think it is to heavy now because of all the paper and glue I used... I know Notebooks can be heavier then standard mail but what is the normal weight (and postage price) we are allowed to use for this Swap. I might just try and cut the sides off but idk if that will make lot of difference in weight. Otherwise I have to use another (boring) notebook... Sooo, opinions? :) idk what the normal weight to send a notebook is...? Mine weights 120 grams. Is that too much? It's just an A5 notebook with soft cover, with around 30 pages. Thank you!

@Kimspiration to me it dsesnt matter because everyone does there notebooks different just make sure the measurements are the right size that's all ask

Okรฉ, thank you. Yea, it doesn't really matter to me too (unless your notebook weights 1kg or something, then there's something wrong lol๐Ÿ˜…) but I thought I just ask in case anyone cares xd Yes the measurement is A5 sized! I wanted to keep it under 100 grams but that is really hard, especially if you decorate it with tons of glue and papers. Okay then I will just send this one out in this weekend. Thank you! :) happy swapping! :)
