Altered Paperclip swap- COMPLETE

Hello dis swappers! I have decided after participating in lots of swaps on this board over the last few years it's time for me to give hostessing a swap a try. I am really excited to be hostessing for the first time. I hope you all will give me a chance and join this fun and easy swap.

This is an interest thread for our upcoming Altered Paper Clips Swap! I will open sign up on Tuesday July 10th at 10am EST. Sign ups will close on Friday July 13th.

Here is the thread from a previous swaps:

http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=1470992
http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2700343

we will be doing Disney groups and everyday groups...if anyone has any additional ideas to add to each group please let me know!!

This thread will become the official sign up thread on July 10th...with the mail date of August 27th to me, I can extend the mail date if needed (I know the Summer can be a little hectic)....will then swap everything out and get it mailed back to you by August 31st. Since this is my first time hostessing, I am giving myself a few extra days to sort, swap and send your items back. I am not expecting to need it but just in case.

Altered Paper Clips Info and Guidelines

You will alter TWO Jumbo (2 inch) paper clips for each person in your group.

Metal paper clips only please - NO plastic coating - Scrap safe painted metal is okay.

All other items should be acid free.

Let your creativity have free reign!
cardstock, inks, stickers, ribbons, flowers, bling, charms...anything goes

please place your 2 paper clips in small snack size baggies for each person in your group and then into a quart or gallon baggie labeled as followed:

Your name
Your Disname
Group #

For the World Showcase group, please put your clips for both countries into the same bag! So you will be sending me 6 bags instead of 12! Then put those 6 bags into the bigger bag.

You may mail them to me in any way you'd like, but I will be mailing them back priority mail, if you want to have Delivery Conf added, please include the extra $.70 to cover it and fill out the form and also a return mailing address label filled out for me.

Since this will be small groups, they will probably fit in the small priority mail box or envelope, please do not send the pre-printed metered postage.

IF YOU ARE NEW TO SWAPPING ON THE DISBOARDS YOU WILL BE LIMITED TO SIGNING UP TO THREE GROUPS!

Will start with group of 8 for each group and open up more groups if needed. Please let me know any group ideas that you may have. I am open to anything that you all are interested in!

Hope this covers all the needed info, please let me know if you notice anything missing or have any questions!

Thanks Everyone!
Stephanie

Thanks everyone! So excited to have you all join in on the fun! Lisa, I saw that you hosted this swap last year. I thought it would be a nice easy one to get my hostess feet wet with.

Are there any other groups you guys would be interested in that are not already listed? Just let me know! I am open to adding any that you all would like.

I am going to have to sit this one out, too much away time to allow me to commit myself comfortably. Hope you guys have fun!

I've never participated in a swap because I am always intimidated by the amount of work that seems to go into making each set of titles, embellishments, mats, and all that. That said, this I can do! I think this would be perfect for a first swap for me to be in. I would like to do two groups at the most so I don't overwhelm myself. Are we supposed to tell you which groups we would like to be in?

Glad you found your way to the disboards swap threads! We love having new players. It took me a very long time to feel comfortable participating in swap requiring many elements. This is the perfect swap to get started with! I'm so glad to have you as a player.

On July 10th at 10 am EST I will open this swap. At that time, you just need to tell me what groups you would like to join and your good to go. If you have any additional questions feel free to ask. I will help as much as I can!

Welcome!! I will warn you -- swapping can be come addicting!

Stephanie, I have a couple of questions:

For the Epcot group, can we make something for the WS pavilions or do you want us to stick to specific rides/shows?

When we sign up, how specific do we need to be. For example, in the Fab 5 group, do you want us to list just "Minnie" or "Minnie's bow". Just wondering how much planning I need to do this weekend. Thanks.
