Details of swap:

Let's swap some beautiful papers, ephemera, doo-dads and more! Other people's papers and ephemera is always more interesting than our own, right? Here's a list of ideas for things to swap around:
Papers: Handmade papers, altered papers, painted papers, scrapbook papers, drop papers, envelopes, origami paper, card stock, cards for altering, wrapping paper, foreign text, embossed papers, ATC supplies, vintage dress patterns, etc.
Ephemera: Stickers, image transfers, bleached photos, playing cards, magazine images, letters, buttons, bingo dots, paper clips, glitter, stamped images, chipboard pieces, recipes, vintage book pages, brads, etc.

There are probably a million things not named here, but these are some ideas!

For this swap in the U.S., we will swap a small or medium flat rate box of papers/ephemera.  (You can send a large rate if you and your partner agree on that!)

Ok. I am in! The kids and I have been having a lot of fun with origami. Also it's a great excuse to go to antique stores and dig through old pics and papers.

A medium flat rate box is big! I'll have to get creative to fill it.

Oh, this sounds so tempting! I'll have to think on it though, since a medium box is a bit of a commitment.

Wondering if there could be a small or medium box option? I would love to fill and receive a small box. Smiley

I see some of you guys are concerned about the medium flat rate box. Is it the cost you are concerned with or having enough to fill it?

I understand. Personally, I am all in for a medium box. I do gelli printing  and have a huge stack of papers just waiting for a home. I guess depending on your partner maybe you could send some things like card making blanks...Another idea might be visit your local goodwill for old books and tear out the pages. I often visit my local goodwill and look for old children's books and textbooks, etc. Especially the ones with damaged spines because people probably won't buy them so I feel less guilty about tearing them apart lol. Anyway, I hope that helps. The organizer could always change that requirement though....

Yes, we can include the small box if people prefer! I was just thinking of papers I have and I don't think they will really fit in a small one - but if people have smaller things, that works.
