Decos – A deco is similar to a friendship book and there are a wide variety of types. It is a bound book of pages which are sent around the world. The person that the book is “for” is usually listed on the cover and when the book becomes full it is sent back to them. Each person that receives and signs the deco will decorate one page according to the theme of the booklet (if there is one) and put their postal/email address and sign their name. Typically, each entrant in the “deco” must use one full page to express themselves. Glitter, sequins, feathers and other scrapbooking supplies are frequently used in “decos.” Despite the artistic expressions used in these types of friendship books, the basic rules of passing the friendship book to person to person is the same.

is there a specific size the books have to be?

sparklefaerie- I have seen them in all sizes, but usually large enough for someone to make a neat page. I'm not going to set a size but we should all use our heads! ;)

oops! I ticked this one as "sent" but have been using my iPhone for everything but the teeny links and buttons sometimes dont fully click like I think they are. My partner can confirm by the postage tape that my swap was sent on the 13th (which is late for me but I just opened up a store that is incredibly busy & thriving; I didn't expect this and have been working 12 hrs a day 7 days for over a month now).
