Details of Swap
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. Optional: You may join two groups, where you would be making four houses.
Houses should be measure between 3 to 4 inches wide and no taller than 7 inches. Decorate them front and back with emphasis on embellishment. Please sign the back with your LC name and date. You want everyone to remember that great house you made.
Please use a base material such as paperboard, matboard, wood, layered cardstock, or foam core. Basically, use something that can stand without flopping over in the future so you can have a whole chunky neighborhood.
There is no need to create a stand for your chunky house. Most of us from the Old Site either hang them with clothespins or prop them up against other decorations.
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 in a small padded envelope or sandwiched between cardboard. Write “DO NOT BEND” in red ink on both sides of your 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 the organizer when you have received
-post your comments, questions, thoughts, teasers, etc. in this thread
-post photos of your received chunky houses in the gallery
