Swap name:  Holiday Tag Swap - Round 2
Craftster member who is organizing this swap:  Onyxnox
Sign-up date range:  October 6 - 20, 2014
Date to send item by:  November 8th, 2014

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): No

Restricted to people who all live in the same country? YES/NO
If so, which country? No

Additional Age requirement? 16 years and up

- 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: N/A
- Is at least 18 years old: 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

- Participant has agreed that he/she is at least 16 years old: YES
- If within the US, understands that Delivery Confirmation number is required for this swap: YES
- If outside the US, understands that a mailing receipt copy is required for this swap: YES

Details of swap:

The goal is to have several groups of 4 swappers each, each swapper will make and send 5 tags for each of their partners in the group (15 tags in total per sender), so that in the end, each recipient will receive 15 tags for their gift giving this holiday season.  The tags can be the same, or different from each other if people want to be creative.  They can be made with any materials/media, though I suspect most people will construct them from papers, so I am treating it as a papercrafted swap.  But don't let my limited vision limit you!

Each tag should be at least large enough to be visible on a gift package, with room for names to be written, so I am setting a minimum 2x3 inches, with no maximum limit.

as per Craftster swapping rules, papercraft swaps are exempt from the DC confirmation requirements.  Senders are required to resend their packages if they are not received for any reason.  Please keep communication clear and let your organizer and members of your group know when you send and receive, via PM.

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

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:

Last year was awesome.  I ended up keeping some tags and using them as bookmarks.  I'm totally in for this year.

I'm hoping to find the time to sign up tonight. I plan on making fabric tags though, as I don't have the mad paper crafting skills oft found in these parts.

Again, don't feel hindered by my limited vision Smiley  Fabric tags is a great idea!  I may make some wood chalkboard ones myself if anyone is interested in that... or recycled can ones too just came to mind.

Yes! I think if I had a machine like that, I would be a much better papercrafter.  Smiley

Anything and everything is welcome!  The more the merrier!

I don't have any definitive plans for tags yet myself, but I have been making art tags, and following some of the tags made by Tim Holtz and Tammy Tutterow, so I may make some like that.  I was thinking of stuff like the chalkboard ones I mentioned before, and recycled metal as well.
