1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Craft Swaps / Re: Mini Junk Journals - SU 6/13-6/27 SO 8/3 on: Today at 09:59:38 AM
you're not alone!  I've never made one before either.  But I figure - hey it's "junk" so I can't screw it up too bad  Wink


I'm getting excited!! I've never made a junk journal before (sorry future partner!!) but I've been looking at a lot of tutorials and inspiration projects and I'm feeling like I'm ready to dive in!

Welcome! You send it in a private message.

I want to join!
Do I post my questionnaire on the feed or do I private message the organizer? (This is my first swap! noob.) Tongue Grin

I have posted the next round.  There's only a week for sign-ups so that I can get partners out before the July 4th holiday!

Does anyone want to step in and organize the next round?  I may have over extended a bit for the next couple weeks.

DETAILS OF SWAP:

Let's swap pocket letters!

Pocket Letters are where you take a 9 pocket trading card page and fill each pocket with an ATC (although they don't have to be as detailed as an ATC) and small goodies tucked in behind the ATCs (stickers, tea bags, a note, washi tape samples, pictures, ephemera, craft supplies, paper clips, beads) and in one pocket, include a letter.
If you don't know where to find 9 pocket pages they are sold where collectible card games are sold such as Walmat or your local game store.  Or Amazon (25 for $5)
http://www.amazon.com/Ultra-Pro-Pocket-Page-Protectors/dp/B005HIOVOG

Each pocket can be a different theme or you can have one theme across all 9 pockets

This should be a low cost swap if you keep to all flat items and embellishments and should fit in an
A4 envelope (4 1/4" x 6 1/4") (you would have to fold it but that should not be an issue) or similar size.  I have heard that they should fit into a business sized envelope (4 1/8" x 9 1/2"). Just make sure that it is packaged well and the corners won't tear the envelope! Taping the edges of the envelope might be a good idea.

You can choose 1 or 2 partners.

Check into the swap thread every week!

Email address:
Your real name:

1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
8.
9.
10.

What are your favorite colors:
What colors do you dislike:
List themes you do NOT want to receive:
What (if anything) would you NOT want to receive as an extra/goodie in the pockets behind the ATCs?  

Any allergens in your home (pets, smoke, pollen)?

Pinterest link (to give your partner an idea of what you like)

Anything else youd like to tell the organizer or partner NOT listed in the questionnaire?

IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO ORGANIZER VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND NOT TO REPLY WITH IT HERE.

The sunset/ship card by Beautifulsoul is very nice.  the colors are great.
Lovely female form card by rockingbearranch.

That Hello Kitty/Mr. T card made me laugh.  Hilarious.  And I really like the edging.  Did you use a border punch or decorative scissors?

The Edward Gorey ATC is nicely done.

For those who have made junk journals before, what do you use to make the covers?  Sturdy decorated cardboard?  buy chipboard?  Some other material? I've hear of people using 9"x12" envelopes to make the cover but I wouldn't think that would be very sturdy but maybe it doesn't need to be.
