Need Inspiration? Here is my Chunky Halloween Houses Pinterest with ALL of the past Halloween Chunky Houses!
In this swap, participants will make and send out one house to each member in their group according to their partner’s themes. Participants will be put into groups of three. This means you will be making two houses.
Houses should measure equal to or less than 5 x 7 in (12.7 x 17.78 cm). Decorate the houses front and back then sign the back with your LC name and date. We want everyone to remember that great house you made.
Please use a base material such as chipboard, thin wood, foam core… anything that can stand on its own without flopping over. Your house does not have to be freestanding. Think about your design… is it saturated with paint? Maybe chipboard isn’t the answer. Do you have a lot of fiddly windows? Foam core is going to be a pain to cut. Use your crafty intuition. “Houses” is a loose term, it’s more like “choose your own adventure” within the guidelines of 5x7 and your partner’s Q.
Since this is a papercraft swap, no tracking/delivery confirmation is required, HOWEVER, you will have to remake and resend any packages that fail to reach their destinations. No exceptions.
Please send your house sandwiched between some cardboard in an envelope or in a padded envelope. Write “DO NOT BEND” in red ink on both sides of your envelope/package. We want that chunky house that you spent so much time creating to reach its new home in good shape.
Communication is important.
It is your responsibility to:
-PM all of your partners and the organizer when you have sent–you must send to ALL of your partners at the same time (this seriously helps me with organization)
-PM your partner and organizer when you have received
-post your comments, questions, thoughts, teasers, etc. in this thread
-post individual photos of your received chunky houses in the gallery within one week and thank your partner
IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO @irid3sc3nt VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND NOT TO REPLY WITH IT HERE.
Also, remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find other rules about participating in a swap.
