Swap #2 - Friendship Day Swap

First of all, let me thank and Congratulate you all on such amazing swaps!!! I mean, I am feeling pretty insignificant at the talent that I've seen!! Simply amazing!! Everyone give yourself a pat on your back for a job well done!! A swap well done!

I am sure you're eyes will pop when we upload the images of the minis!!

Coming to the next one...its a Friendship themed swap. You will be making 3 items to send to your swap partner!
1.  A Handmade and Embellished Notepad. 
     You can choose to die cut 20 pages and embellish the covers and bind with a ring or ribbon, or you         can choose to buy a ready made notepad and embellish it.
  The notepad size will be at least  5x5 size ..not small than that.
   And 20 pages minimum.
A sample made by Saumya ...Here she has used thick printer papers as in the inserts and CardStock for the cover.



2. A Set of Four Handmade 4x4 notecards...(envelopes are optional)
     We would like if you could package the note-cards with a belly band or twine. 

3. A Handmade Friendship Band...
the kinds we used to make in school, with embroidery threads...that is our suggestion...you can braid yours..use leather etc...its upto you...but please do not buy from the market and send.



Our emphasis is on handmade and everything that can be handmade, should be handmade.

So these are your Swap for the month of June-July.

Registrations are open till 25th June and you will have time till 30th July to send out your swaps.

And like this time too....your partner's names will be sent out on 25th July...So go ahead have fun....and do post in all your queries....We will answer them in the next post...I'm assuming you will have queries!

Hi Seema,
This is not a competition, this is just a friendly swap...so make the best you can...no one was born with crafting..we just learned along the way...
Hope you'll have fun.
