Details of swap:
Paper, ephemera, papercrafting tools, charms, scraps, doodads we want it all, right? Anything you can reasonably use for papercrafting (within your partners wants) is fair game for this swap!

There are a few options with this swap:

Option 1. You and your partner each send the other a regular, business-sized envelope full of papercrafting goodies. (A business-sized envelope is 4 1/8 by 9 1/ 2 inches- FYI.)

Option 2. You and your partner each send the other a standard (9x12) manila envelope full of papercrafting goodies.

Option 3 Givers and Needers Option. If you have a lot of papercrafting items to share and would like to destash, you may want to be a Giver. If you want to get into papercrafting, but cant afford or find supplies, you may want to be a Needer. Each Giver will fill a 9x12 envelope with assorted papercrafting supplies and send this to their partnered Needer. In exchange, their partnered Needer will craft one small papercrafting item and send it to their Giver. (These items do not have to be made of the received supplies.)
***Please note: If you choose to be a Giver, you must give some description of what sort of papercrafting supplies you have to offer. If you choose to be a Needer, you have one extra week to send out your crafted items. If I have an uneven number of Givers and Needers, I will PM the last person(s) to sign up to see if you wish to choose one of the other two options.

You must at least fill the agreed-upon size of envelope, but you are welcome to send more if you like. Just discuss what you plan to send with your partner, so no one feels like they didn't send enough. Smiley
*****
If this is your first swap, you may choose one option/partner.
If you have completed one or more swaps, you may choose to have two partners, in any combination of the three options.

This sounds great!  I am wanting to do papercrafts, but I am sure embarrased about my first attempt at an atc!!! LOL!!!  I just don't quite understand the concept I think.  I don't have a "stash" yet really, but I am sure I can acquire/find enough to send an envelope  or two.  I love the stuff I have received from others recently.  Could the "crafted item" be some thing maybe sewn to use to organize supplies in?  I am a better sewer than gluer/compositioner/artist so far.

You might consider being a Needer too... then someone else could add to your stash. Smiley
I don't see any reason why your crafted item couldn't be sewn, as long as your partner is ok with that. But you only have to craft something if you're a Needer... otherwise you just have to sent stuff! (Although you are certainly welcome to send crafted items if you like!)
Also, there are all different styles of artists and ranges of abilities, and that's a good thing! Don't discount your abilites! Smiley

I could be a giver if people are interested in just ephemera/images... I have a huge selection of old/vintage books and magazines that my husband and I cut up to collage with... I have some paper I can share, but not too much as I'm not really a scrapbooker.

If all works out feedback-wise, I would LOVE to be a Giver.

I'll be back.
