Hello everyone!

this is an interest thread for our upcoming Altered Paper Clips Swap!
I will open sign up on Monday April 25th at 7:00am PST/10:00am EST!

This is my first time hostessing a swap, so please be patient with me! Rebecca; rlovew, has graciously stepped up to be my hostess buddy to help me out if I have any issues along the way, thank you Rebecca!!

Here is the thread from a previous swap:

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

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

This thread will become the official thread on April 25th...with the mail date of May 31st to me, I can extend the mail date if needed....will then swap everything out and get it mailed back to you by June
6th!!

Will post future information below, but wanted to get this started for now!


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 #

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 which is $5.20, please do not send the pre-printed metered postage.

Will start with group of 10 for each group and open up more groups if needed.

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

Thanks,
Lisa

    I am in clip heaven lately...they seem to be my embellishment of choice recently. So, I definitely want to play!!!

    Are you breaking the everyday up into categories? (Like pets, kids, beach, holidays, etc?) Or, is it a free for all type thing? And, will the Disney be general or anything specific?

    I'm excited for this! And good luck to you Lisa...you'll be great! You are an awesome swapper, so it'll carry right over into hosting!

    I will make the groups however the majority would like, that's why I started it a bit early so we have time to figure out what we want to create!
    ah thanks, figured this would be a good one to get my feet wet with...I don't think I could ever do one of the super swaps :scared1: don't know how you do it!

    OK...so in that case, I vote for sub-categories.


    If anyone is unsure about these....they are so great on pages!!!! You can attach them to a mat, a picture, a tag, etc. They really add something great, are easy to make and very versatile! Also, you can easily make them using scraps!

    Everything looks great Lisa! I love this swap- I will see how things are going with the family by opening time to decide on joining in but I am normally close enough to jump on a computer at least every other day if anything is needed.

    Will everyone pick a character when they sign up so there aren't 5 duplicates of the same one in each group? Or are you just letting the creativity run wild? I'm good with it either way, just brainstorming about what I wanna sign up for - so far I think its every group :lmao:. I do love these clips!

    Can someone be my signup buddy or can I PM you my requests? I won't be around on the 25th.
