The 12 Days of Swapping Christmas swap was such a hit…..I figured let’s do it again!
Max 2 spots per person. I will accept partner requests, however, you may not have the same person you had last round. You may want to send me a list in order of preference in case I can’t give you the person you requested.
7 Days of Swapping
($35 gift swap)
This will be a secret pal swap and you will not be made to have the same person that has you – that way everyone still has the ability to request who they want.
You will send your pal 7 gifts total – all scrapbooking related. Each is wrapped separately and must be have a tag marked with the date your pal is to open it. Your tags can be simple or elaborate (it’s up to you), but must contain at least 1 technique or embellishment and be obviously valentine related. For instance, a die cut heart stamped with the date would be fine…or you can go crazy with even more techniques or embellies. You mail them all together along with a handmade Valentine’s Day card.
You must mail your pals package so that they receive it by February 7th (very important).
On February 8th your pal will open their handmade card and their first gift labeled for that date.
Then on February 9th they will open their next gift (labeled with that date).
Each day they will continue to open the gift labeled for that date up until February 14th when they open their last and biggest gift.
This why your pal must have their package by 2/7
Each day everyone will hopefully post what they received as their gift for that day.
All items must be storebought, from your pals wishlist/survey, be scrapbooking related and be new/unused. No goodie bags are allowed – all NIP.
The total value of the first 6 gifts (2/8-2/13) must be a minimum total retail value $25.
The gift(s) that your pal opens on Valentine’s Day must be worth at least $10 retail. (all NIP and storebought)
Any additional handmades or gifts (scrapbooking related or not) are optional/extra…but who doesn’t like to be spoiled? Stay away from dollar stores to be safe. Don’t be cheap. Follow your pals wishlist(s) and survey for items that count towards the minimum requirements. The best way to make your pal happy is to follow their wishlist – can’t go wrong there!
Your handmade card must be in an envelope for your pal to open.
Each days gifts must be individually wrapped, have a tag attached and labeled with the date to open (8-14).
All of these items must be mailed in one box to your partner.
Package your items well so that they arrive in one piece to your partner.
Your partner must receive it by 2/7. Don’t cut it too close!!!
You must purchase a Delivery Confirmation number for the package.
You must post:
• at least once a week (check in), and
• when you receive your kit
Hopefully you will also post what you opened each day.
My Swap Motto: if it’s not sold in the scrapbooking section of a scrapbooking/craft store or on sb.com – don’t bother sending it in. You should only send in high quality items for my swaps.
