Details of swap:
For this swap, you’ll send the following handmade items to your swap partner:
- one journal cover
- one notebook insert
- two journal accessories

The above list of crafted items is the minimum requirement for this swap.
Please feel free to chat with your partner if you wish to swap for more notebook inserts, accessories, etc.
Extras are not necessary, but if you like to spoil your swap partner with extras, you may also opt to do that at your discretion Wink

Let's talk about journal covers.  For practicality, your constructed journal cover should be hardy enough for everyday use.  A variety of materials may be utilized to create your journal cover - canvas, fabric, leather (you may wanna check if this is a viable option for your swap partner), grungeboard, book board, etc.  Another idea might be to start with a plain journal cover that you can customize and embellish for your swap partner.  Too many possibilities! Cheesy    

Notebook inserts are an essential component in a traveler's journal.  The pages may be regular print paper, or even graph paper, dot grid paper, parchment paper, cotton linen paper, cardstock, recycled paper, etc.  Have fun with it!  

And last but not least, accessories!!!  Pen holders, attachable zip pouches, pockets, folder inserts, journal charms, washi tape holders, page markers, clippies, stickers, etc.  Basically, it's anything you think your swap partner would love to use with his/her journal.
