Paper Swap 2009


It’s that time again! I’m very happy to announce the second annual paper swap hosted by yours truly!

For those of you who didn’t participate last year, the rules are pretty simple.

Directions: Create one handmade item or several small handmade items in which the main material or theme is paper. Make multiple items (usually between 10 and 12, depending on how many people sign up) and send them out to your swap-mates. Then sit back and wait for your swap-mates to send their stuff to you.

To participate: Send an e-mail to with the subject “Paper Swap” along with your name, preferred e-mail address, shipping address, and a few photos or a detailed description of your item(s).

Deadlines: Sign up by July 1. Ship your item(s) by August 1. I will email you the names, email addresses, and mailing addresses of your swap-mates soon after July 1


Can I choose who I swap with?

I don’t want my e-mail address published or sent out to everyone. Can I still participate?

I will only send your e-mail address to your swap-mates so that they can contact you if there is a problem or a question about shipping.

Do all of my packages have to be the same or can I send different things to different people?
You do not need to send the same item(s) to all of your swap mates. However, you cannot change what you are swapping after you sign up so please plan ahead!

Will I have to ship to anyone outside the United States?

Last year we had the odd international swapper, but for the most part you will only be swapping with people in the United States. If you don’t want to ship internationally, please mention it in your email when you sign up as I can’t change who you will be swapping with after the sign up deadline passes.

What if something comes up and I find myself unable to complete the swap?
E-mail me at and I’ll take care of it.

  1. Thanks for the invite! I’d love to join in on the fun, but we’re expecting our first baby this July, and however optimistic I am, I just don’t think I’ll have time to create anything swap-worthy… Maybe next year? 🙂 Wish you a very successful swap!
