********************
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. This means that you will be making two houses or four houses depending on if you sign up for one or two groups.

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.

There is no need to create a stand for your chunky house.  Most of us hang them with clothespins or prop them up against our other Halloween decorations.

Since this is a papercraft swap, no tracking/delivery confirmation is required, HOWEVER you will have to remake/resend any packages that fail to reach their destinations.  No exceptions.  

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)

Need inspiration? Here is my Pinterest Board with ALL of the past Halloween Chunkies!
********************

IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO ORGANIZER irid3sc3nt VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE titled "Chunky House" 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: If there is someone whom you absolutely positively cannot swap with, please message me separately.
Additional note: When you are ready to send out your houses, please send to ALL of your partners at once.

But you can mail as letters if you make them flat enough. Really cuts the cost.

Yes, what cmarion3 said.  Usually these are pretty flat anyway, but if you leave off any bits and bobs that would make your envelope bumpy then you could easily send international for low cost.

I'm visiting my mom in Southern California so I get to shop at all the big stores that don't exist in San Francisco - Tuesday Morning, the Dollar Tree and Michaels. I have gotten a few goodies for this swap and lots of ideas.
