Heart Closed and POstal!! *Make It a Mini-Album Using Junk Swap* Due May 3rd 2013

Make It A Mini-Album Using Junk Swap

It's that time for another mini album swap using things you would normally thow away. I've been hoarding coffee sleeves, toilet paper rolls and tea packets. What have you been hoarding in your stash till you could get that creative kick to make something with it??

Quantity: 4 (3+1 for the hostess)
Due Date: May 3rd

Deets: There will be no size requirements or vendor requirements. Feel free to make a mini album any size you'd like! No minimum number of pages since your item could be very tiny and only hold a few pages or thick and hold many pages. You can bind them with ribbon, twine, binder rings, ect. You can use a coffee sleeve on the outside and cardstock on the inside. The possibilities are endless! I'll put some examples here for creative inspiration!

Themes are optional

Try to make all 4 albums as close to the same as possible. You are welcome to take more than 1 spot but please make a diffent kind of album for each spot you take.

I'll keep a running list. I LOVE posting pics and as the albums come in I'll post them. You are welcome to take "DIBS" or make a request for any album that you fancy! Just post on the thread or PM me and let me know! This way you can get something you'll love based on YOUR tastes and not just mine
No Vendor Requirements--but make something you would love to give and receive.

Canada and International swappers are always welcome in my swaps!!

When you're ready to mail: Place your items in a ziplock bag with your name and SCS name. Make sure to take credit for your creation by including a post it or some sort of label with your items.You are welcome to send in cash, stamps, or send money via paypal for return postage (just pm me for my email addie for paypal). I print labels offline for those who send cash or paypal and it comes with delivery confirmation. If you send in stamps, include as much postage as it took for you to send plus a few extra stamps. I'll return anything that's not used. I always try to reuse any envelopes/boxes that I can

Send your packages to:
