Swap name: ATC & Ephemera Scavenger Hunt
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: raina.storms

Date to send item by: 4/23/07

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): YES, 24.

- Has posted at least 15 times: YES
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES
- Does not have any negative feedback: YES


Details of swap:
Borrowing the easy to understand words of Kaos, this is how this swap will work.
1. Everyone sends in a list of four themes along with your questionairre.
2. 4 themes x 24 participants = a 96 theme list
3. Partners are assigned
4. The goal is to find ephemera and/or make ATCs using all 100 themes...in any combination...meani ng you could send one ATC with all 100 themes on it OR 99 pieces of ephemera + 1 ATC to cover the 100 themes OR 50/50 OR 60/40 OR etc, etc, etc. So the idea is send as many of the 100 themes as you can to your partner.

If ATCs aren't your thing, but you still like ephemera, you can join too. There are no minimums on how many ATCs you might make for this swap. Whatever moves you to make one is great. You don't have to make any ATCs! Join if you like paper/ephemera!

Themes can be anything. Pink, ribbon, travel, sushi, tiger, alarm clock, and claustrophobia are all themes. Wink



If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

I want to join, I only worry about the cost of shipping...but most likely you could fit everything into one of those big padded manila envelopes right?  Is it usually expensive because of it's weight?

too heavy and it can get a little pricey!  I think you could get away with less weight by making your ATC's with lots of the themes.  But even dozens of scavenger hunt ephemera bits shouldn't add up to too much money.

I agree with AM, I don't think it'd be too expensive if you use some themes for ATCs. Also, your bits of ephemera don't have to be a certain size! Smaller is better for ATC makers anyway. Wink  And I plan on using a manilla envie as well.
