Details of Swap:
In this swap, participants will be put into groups of 3. You may join up to 2 groups.  Participants will make and send out one house to each person in the group.

Houses should measure between 3" to 4" wide and no taller than 7". Decorate them front and back with emphasis on embellishment.  Please sign the back with your name or craftster handle and date.  You want everyone to remember that great little house you made.

Please use a base material such as paperboard, matboard, wood, layered cardstock or foam core. It needs to stand without flopping over so you can have a whole chunky neighborhood.

Since this is a paper craft swap, DC numbers and mailing receipt copies are not required.  HOWEVER, if for some reason your chunky house does not arrive at its destination you will be required to re-send.  

Please send your house in a small padded envelope or sandwiched between cardboard.  Write "DO NOT BEND" on both sides of your package. We want that artwork that you spent so much time creating to get to its new home in good shape.

Communication is important.  Failure to communicate will be reflected in your feedback.
It is your responsibility to:
-PM all of your partners and the organizer as soon as you have sent
-PM all of your partners and the organizer as soon as you have received
-post in this thread!
-post photos of your received chunky houses in the gallery (unless you have agreed with your partners to have them post)

IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO ORGANIZER irid3sc3nt VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE titled "Chunky Houses" AND NOT TO REPLY WITH IT HERE.
Also, remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find other rules about participating in a swap.

Note:  Please doublecheck your questionnaire to make sure you have answered every question before sending it to me.

Please craft with your partner's themes.  You may have to step outside the box, but that's the fun and challenge of crafting for other people, right?

This was so much fun! I last did this swap while I was in uni, and had all the houses taped to my door for decoration. the a.....e custodian decided to knock into my door while he was cleaning and throw them all into the trash! I was heartbroken and complained but nothing ever came of it. Now that I'm not in school and dont have to worry about my decor being trashed I would like to build up a collection again

I would absolutely love to have a personal swap! I'm interested in jewelry, soap, and anything that inspires you on my Pinterest
