GALLERY!



Some of the goodies I received in Round 10!


Swap name: Paper and Ephemera Swap Round 11

- If outside the US, understands that a mailing receipt copy is required for this swap: Not required but recommended

Details of swap:

This will be a quicker and shorter version of the last round for two reasons. There is little or no crafting for this swap (unless you make marbled or homemade paper, prints or other crafted/decorated papers) and you can start gathering your items now. And this will be a straightforward, two partners swapping swap. The next round, we can offer more options - sending to more than one partner and Givers and Needers.

What is ephemera? Here is the Wikipedia definition:

Ephemera (singular: ephemeron) is any transitory written or printed matter not meant to be retained or preserved. The word derives from the Greek, meaning things lasting no more than a day. Some collectible ephemera are advertising trade cards, airsickness bags, bookmarks, catalogues, greeting cards, letters, pamphlets, postcards, posters, prospectuses, defunct stock certificates or tickets, and zines.

Grab an envelope and start filling it up with your paper goodies. You can also include ribbon, fibers, trims, buttons, unmounted rubber stamps - anything you can think of to make art. You and your partner can discuss how large an envelope you will send.

...

Since this is a paper swap, USPS tracking is not required (I'll change that in the Q) but if you end up using a Priority envelope, it is free.

OOOOO fun stuff. I am gathering stuff but cannot sign up until the slow, slow, very slow mail makes it to Canada and overseas. Then I can sign up. So I am putting this on my watch list.

I have a bunch of 5"x7" envelopes left over from wedding invitations... stuffing one of them with a craft swap sounds like a great plan!  Grin Just sent in my questionnaire.
