Anyone interested in making some chunky pages?  Smiley I could start the swap early August if there's interest.

For anyone who is not sure what a chunky page is a 4x4in square that is embellished with paper, paint, embellishments, ribbon, etc. Some people choose to bind their pages together to form a book and others like to display them alone.

Here's the previous rounds:

Does each recipient get to determine their own theme they'd like to receive, or is the theme pre-determined?  Thanks!

The last time I organized each person got to pick their own theme or themes. I'd probably run it that way again, unless a large majority wanted to do it another way.

Whatever you use for your base needs to be sturdy, my chosen base is usually a recycled cereal box or something of similar thickness. A canvas paper probably would be too flimsy, but it could be mounted on something thicker like cardboard or if it was layered two or three times it should work. A canvas board would work but remember it would have to be 4x4 inches.

I'd have to make time for it, but i'm always so jealous of the lovely pages in this swap. I'd be in.

Now to think of a theme....

My problem would be limiting myself to a single theme!  I'd love to do this if the timing/rules allow as I'm a newbie.  I am in the IYP swap with 2 partners.  One sent and one sending really soon.

People can list more than one theme if they want. Let's say 5 themes for your partners to choose from? I'd group everyone into groups of 5 so each person is responsible for sending out 4 chunky pages, and the option is available to be in 2 groups so then that would be a total of 8 chunky pages. Sound ok?
