Details of swap:
In this swap, participants will have two options.
#1.To sign up to swap with a single partner. (Send and receive 1 bookmark.)
#2. To sign up to swap in a group of 5. (Send and receive 4 bookmarks.)
This swap is open to people in every country, and is a great way to try out swapping internationally, without a lot of cost. To those of you who automatically say you do not wish to ship to a country outside your own, please consider it on this one!!!
You will only be mailing an envelope and the costs would be much less than in a traditional swap. Think about how much fun it will be to get international mail! And think about how sad you would be as an international crafter, if no one ever wanted to swap with you! I would also be happy to take into consideration those of you who wished to have only 1 or 2 international partners. Here are some postal rates, taken from the USPS.com postage calculator, for standard envelopes, weighing 1 & 2 oz, containing non-rigid, or rigid objects. These are just here as a guide, not any sort of official price.
Australia 1 oz. non-rigid $.98

For a wonderful swap experience, communication is always the key. Please keep in touch with your partners and organizer. If you are accepted into the swap, I will PM you, and add you to the participant list. Once partners have been assigned, you may craft your bookmarks and send as early as you wish. All swaps on Craftster, requires the use of DC#’s, but this is not possible when sending letters or sending internationally. Since you can't get a DC number for these, feedback will be based on if your partner received or not.
For U.S. based swappers: If your bookmark is not received after two weeks, you will need to re-craft and send another one to avoid negative feedback.
For International and US/International swappers: If your bookmark is not received after two weeks, you will need to re-craft and send.
If you don't think you'll be able to make and send more bookmarks if your items are lost in the mail, please think about either doing option #1, or joining the next round instead. As soon as you ship, YOU MUST PM YOUR organizer and your partner to tell them. Please label your PM "SENT: Bookmark Swap - Round. 2". When you receive, you MUST PM your partner and organizer again, please label this one "RECEIVED: Bookmark Swap - Round 2".
