So the holiday gift giving season is coming up, and I am inviting fellow Craftsters in joining in on a seasonal card and tag swap. This year it will be slightly different from our previous Tag swaps, because it will be a combination of cards and tags.
Anyways, let's get some of the business end done...
Swap name: 2015 Holiday Tags and Cards Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: Onyxnox
Sign-up date range: October 09, 2015 (by midnight EST)
Date to send item by: November 04, 2015
Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): 20
Restricted to people who all live in the same country? YES/NO - no
If so, which country? not applicable
Additional Age requirement? no

- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES
- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: YES
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: not applicable

Details of swap:This will be a swap for cards and tags for the upcoming holiday season.
Participants will be in groups of 4, where each Craftster will send a set of 4 cards (and envelopes) and 4 tags (and attachment mode) to each of the other three members of the group by the send by date, and each Craftster will receive 4 cards/tags from each of the group members.
Therefore everyone, in the end, should have received a dozen cards and tags in time for holiday gift giving.
Minimum expected size for tags - 2"x3", and to include ties/ribbons/sticky
Minimum expected size for cards - 3"x5", and to include envelopes
There is no maximum.
On saying that, the theme of the cards do not have to be limited to the holidays, if that is what your partner wants. Also, Crafsters are encouraged to be as creative as you want; just because it is cards and tags, does not mean you have to limit yourself to paper. If you want to make your items from something other than paper, feel free to. I love seeing how varied the results are and how wonderfully creative everyone is in these swaps! But because this will likely be mostly a paper swap: as per Craftster swapping rules, papercraft swaps are exempt from the DC confirmation requirements. Senders are required to resend their packages if they are not received for any reason.
