COMPLETED - May be deleted now :) Thanks
 
Name of Swap: "Happy Mail"

Description: This is a 3"x5" address label swap.
Use a 3"x5" peice of cardstock or index card and decorate it, theme is up to you. Just make sure to leave enough space for the recipient to write an address. I would keep any embelishments to small items and be sure to adhere them very well as they eventually will be going through the postal service and we don't want any pretties getting caught in the mail machines or lost.

***If you sign up for more than one spot, please make a different set for each spot. ***


Quantity: 5+1 (the +1 is for the hostess, you will not get one of your own back)

Vendor products: NVR just make something you'd be happy to receive.

Include your Real Name & SCS Name on the back of your labels so we know who to credit when bragging about you're awesome artwork.

Deadlines:
Sign-up no later than: March 31st
Ship by date:April 5th (please allow 10 business days for shipping to Canada)
Due IN Hand:April 19th
Return Date:No later than April 26th

Packaging:
Place swap items in a ziploc style bag for waterproof purposes. Write your real name, SCS name and swap name on a piece of paper and include in the baggie for identification purposes.

Swap Return:
Place baggie inside a self-addressed envelope (see these are perfect :p) for return mail purposes. The amount of postage sent should be the same amount that it takes to mail to the swap hostess. To insure that enough postage will cover the returned swap items, include additional postage which will be returned if not used.

**Please feel free to send american stamps as I can use them in my swap returns and I will purchase canadian stamps of equal value to use to return your package to you. I also accept american cash at par**


**I'm super excited to be hostessing this swap as it's my very first swap as a hostess, i've always been a swapper. Fear not though, I have some very good friends on here that are awesome hostesses to help me along the way.**

Alien stamps? That's a cute idea, "mail from space" heehee.

Just on my lunch break checkin in to see what everyone is up to?? What are people working on?? Today's my husbands birthday so plan on taking him out after work for supper.

gramak8e 02-13-2013 09:33 AM

I love making these, but I do keep them real simple. If thats okay, I will take two spots.

angelsparkly 02-13-2013 12:17 PM

Ok, I think I get it. These are for placing on packages to mail, is that right? I would like a spot too.

Yep I'm fine with that, these aren't meant to be overly complicated lol. Simple lends itself very well to this type of project :) I'm sure people will appreciate anything you create :) once I get home and can access my laptop I'll add you to the list.

Ya, you know how swaps say include a self address envelope. Well you take one of these pretties (after you get them) put your address on it and tuck it in with your stuff so your hostess has a label for your envelope. Or you could use them for sending to your hostesses or even regular mail just for fun.

gramak8e 02-13-2013 12:57 PM

:)

jn_leger 02-13-2013 03:10 PM

So, it looks like I will need two more spots! I got some new washi tape a while ago and thought I'd use it for this swap. I made my first set and they were so,quick to put together, that I made a second set! Then I started playing with some Mister Huey that I just got and before I knew it, I had a third set done! These were really fun to make :). I'll post some pics later. Right now I have to go do some yoga before my thigh muscles get any tighter.

Awesome :) I've edited the top thread to reflect your changes.
Soooo excited you could join

See ladies these are easy to make and loads of fun. Like I wrote earlier, they don't have to be complicated :)
