Who is ready for another PATREON SWAP?! As always, this swap is open for every member of the Craft Club: newbies and swap-veterans! You don't have to be a crafting king or queen: I love these swaps because there are so many amazing people in this Club, and I want you all to meet and get creative! 💌 All you need is a filled out profile: no blank pages allowed this time. Feel free to check mine, or someone else's, for some inspiration! [last swap I got some questions: these swaps are for members of the "Craft Club" on Patreon. They're part of my YouTube Community. To see my YouTube channel, check my profile!] 💕

We will be sending an envelope with a written letter and a small crafted penpal project! (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. What type of small project you make is up to you: could be a decorated folder, pocket, mini flipbook, mini pocket-letter (for me that'd be 3 pockets instead of 9: I have some videos on my channel!) or whatever else you can come up with. The aim of this swap is to make something that's not expensive to send, but that is filled with love and decorated with care. I'll list some simple ideas down below, feel free to make something else of course.

Here's the guidelines:

  • create a penpal project. What you make is up to you: just make sure it's decorated and made with love.

  • fill it with goodies, handmade or store-bought. Feel free to use the goodie ideas from last swap! Think of tea, stickers, die-cuts, wax seals, doilies, tags, washi samples, handmade embellishments, tiny words, dried flowers... Try to include 3 different 'types' at least: so not just stickers or only paper scraps. Make a fun combo.

  • include a written card or note and make sure it's a fun bundle: you don't have to gift wrap it, but make it personal. A decorated envelope counts, or a ribbon etc etc. You don’t have to write a 10 page letter, but it shouldn’t be 5 sentences either. (if you need letter inspo: write about who you are, your pets, your job: what you did today, whether you'll walk to the mailbox, how many penpals you have, what your thoughts were during the making of this swap, the tea you're drinking while writing.... Etc etc)

  • the envelope with goodies should weigh around 40-50 grams. Bigger is allowed as well ;)

For this swap, try to match your partner's profile with the goodies at least. Project is senders choice, but it might give you bonus points if you match it to the receiver's likes!

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