Swap name: Altered Label (tag) Swap 2
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: qazicat
Sign-up date range: now till 10 August
Date to send item by: 25 August 2008

Restricted to people who all live in the same country? NO

Age requirement? none put must have parental permission if under aged.

Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES
- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: YES
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: YES

Swap Organizer will check each participant to make sure they meet these conditions:
- Has been a member for at least one month: YES
- Has posted at least 15 times: YES
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES
- Does not have any negative feedback: YES
- Participant has agreed that he/she is at least 13 years old: YES

Details of swap:
Labels/tags want to be beautiful, they want to be altered into something stunning just for you. They want to be painted, sewn, collaged, stapled, hole punched, glued, threaded with ribbons and woolsyou name it, they want to do it. Theyre adventurous little things.

There's lots of things you can do with them, like Rackycoo's idea to make a book, inspired by ~ Beautiful Bindings for Handmade Books ~ which shows how to make a book to display tags. If the tags are left blank they can be used for gift tags. Or they can be pegged up on string washing line, pinned onto cork boards, tied onto furniture knobs...the list is endless!

This swap is all about altering a number of labels/tags and swapping with a group so that you receive the same number back. There will be 5 to a group. Make 4 tags get 4 tags. (signups permitting). Though the limits are up to you if you want to arrange to swap more than one label with your partners.

The size of the tags are to be 4-6cm x 10-12cm.  You can use pre-manufactured tags or make your own out of card stock.

You will asked for 5 themes of what you would like to receive.  Your partners will pick one of your chosen themes and craft a tag in that theme.   This may mean that you will receive a tag on a different theme from each of your partners or your partners may choose to craft the same theme.  It is up to your partners to decide what they will craft for you.  You can indicate a preference in your questionnaire but it is still up to your partner which of the 5 themes they will pick.

You must be willing to send internationally.  Since tags are small, a DC# is not required but if your tags are not received after 3 weeks you will need to resend.

You must post at least once in this thread and the relevent gallery thread to ensure that you received all messages.  I will not be sending out messages via PMs. If you have been approved for the swap your name will appear below in the approved participants list.

You must address all PMs to the organiser with "Altered Label (tag) Swap 2" in the subject line.  You must also advise the organiser via PMs when you have sent and received your tags.  I do not trall through the swap and gallery threads for updates.  People not sending PMs when they send AND receive will get poor communication comments in their feedback.

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

Name of swap
Craftster username
Email address
Your real name
Mailing address including the country
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside your own country?
Confirm that are at least 13 years old (yes/no)

What 5 themes would you like to receive? Please indicate if they are in order of preference or if you just wish to be surprised.

What are your favourite colours?

How do plan to display your labels?

Do you want the backs to be left plain?


Also remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find out how to ship your item and other details about participating in a swap.
