To celebrate our 1 year Patreon anniversary (YAY!) we're doing another swap! This will be a regular swap, but with a twist: the person who receives my swap will get some fun EXTRA gifts! 💕

We will be sending an envelope with handmade goodies! (mind you: not a simple goodies swap! It's mainly crafted items, but they can be any size!) For your idea, try to send a filled envelope between 40 and 50 grams in total. The goodies we will make could be inspired by my two videos in the "penpal goodies" series (links down below), but try to make sure that whatever you send can be used for penpalling.

Here's the guidelines:

  • send at least 5 different "types" of handmade gifts. There's 20+ ideas in the two videos mentioned before: think of bookmarks, stamped goodies, handmade enamel dots, decorated tags, embellishments, shakers... You name it! Feel free to add ideas of your own as well.
  • include a written card or note and make sure it's a fun bundle: wrap it up, or put everything in a larger giftbag for example. You don’t have to go all out with wrapping the goodies, but make it personal. You don’t have to write a 10 page letter, but it shouldn’t be 5 sentences either. A letter is required!
  • the envelope with goodies should weigh around 40-50 grams, so if you're for example sending lighter things like tiny words make sure to also add some heavier things such as journal paper bundles.
  • decorating your goodies is highly encouraged! And if you can, combine it with the March CC Challenge: use your pretty papers ;)

If there are any questions, don't be afraid to ask! For this swap, the majority of the goodies we'll be sending is senders choice. If possible, try to match to your partner's profile but it's not a requirement!

Most importantly: have fun! For sneakpeeks, use the hashtag #CraftClubSwap :)
