Rackycoo and I have been discussing the idea of a label swap. Well, discussing may be too grand, but we have exchanged a couple of thoughts! Cheesy  Since some labels are similar in size to ATC's (and come with their own built in hangers!) does anybody fancy a Label swap? There's lots that can be done to change a label into a beautiful piece of art and the results can be hung up or even made into a book. Since it's a quick and inexpensive swap I hope there's lots of interest! Smiley

These would be the bigger labels rather than the teeny ones, between 4/6cm x 10/12cm. Though if you wanted to attach smaller ones/send as well then that would be fine if it's agreed beforehand with your partners.

Group sizes will depend on the interest, but each person will send to the number of people in their group so that you end up with several labels.

I'd like to start signups for this asap and maybe have a send date in a month, so Friday 7th September, if that fits in with everyone.

So anyone up for labels?

Eg. so you can see the size, this one is 4x10cm

I want that tag, and the holder that comes with it!  Cheesy

I think this would be a fun swap. I have a great book (Beautiful Bindings for Handmade Books) that shows how to make a book to display tags. Some people may wish to have the backs left blank so they can use them for gift tags. There are lots of possibilities here!

Ooh, yes! Definitely drooling over here!

I think practically any media would work. It would be wonderful to have a huge variety.

Numbers would depend on the group size (ie interest) but it could mean making 6 or so. I guess if you wanted to swap more with your partners then that could be arranged between individuals.

I would definitely be interested, but only if I get both of those tags mailed to me for signing up!

Now now girls, no handbags at dawn. There'll be enough beautiful tags for everyone when you sign up! Cheesy

I think I'll start signups later and have them run till till Sunday. Hopefully that'll be long enough.
