Swap Details

This swap is for all skill levels!

We will be swapping

  • Three masterboards
  • And one small item made with at least one masterboard element

Masterboards should be a minimum of 5 1/2" squared. The small item can be an ATC, altered tag, greeting card, postcard, etc. A “small” can be measured by time (2 or less hours), by physical size (Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks), or by price ($10 or less)

Shipping should be low cost for this swap. Please check the weight and/or take it to a post office to be sure it has enough postage. Tracking numbers will not be required for this swap but you should be willing to resend if something goes missing. If you do get a tracking number please share it with @geekgirl and your swap partner. You will not have to resend if you have a tracking number. If you want to ensure you get a tracking number you can use a padded envelope or pad the inside to make the package eligible for tracking.

International shipping from the US:
as long as you keep your envelope 6"x9" or smaller, flat, and flexible (this is very important) and 1 oz or smaller, you can send for 1 global stamp ($1.30) or use non-global stamps adding up to $1.30. you can send 3 oz for 2 global stamps. If it is NOT flat and flexible you are looking at about $18 to send it as a package internationally.

Is there anything else you’d like your partner to know?

@Lynx keeps making me sign up for swaps :joy:

I’m behind on a bunch of stuff, if I can catch up like I’m hoping this weekend then I’ll sign up :slight_smile:


I’m rooting for you! (And, enabling!)


I started making a masterboard today but I was too lazy to get out my tissue paper box so I just used the two loose pieces nearby :sweat_smile: The masterboard started with brown, blue, black, and white… then went on the pink and yellow tissue paper :grimacing: It’s not pretty, YET! :smile: I have plans :wink:


There is no such thing! You’re being inventive with what is on hand!
