The idea of a bookmark swap is to share your love of bookmarks with other swappers. If you love reading then chances are good you enjoy collecting bookmarks.
Each person participating in the swap will be responsible for mailing 3 bookmarks and will get at least 3 bookmarks in return. Keep in mind this is something you are committing to do.
The point of this is to have fun, not to be stressful or expensive to anyone. Handmade bookmarks don’t have to be perfect, but please remember that some of our swappers will be putting hours into creating something special. So let’s all create something memorable!
No swag bookmarks (advertising of a specific book) please.
THE DEADLINE to sign up for the swap is May 31.
THE DEADLINE to mail bookmarks will be Monday June 27, 2011.
HOW TO JOIN THE SWAP: Send me your email and mailing address to: mysterysuspense1 (at) gmail (dot) com.
A few weeks before the deadline I will send a reminder email.
On the deadline day I will send you 3 addresses to mail one bookmark to each address.
2 inches by 7 inches seems to be a common size for paper bookmarks in case you were curious. Add yarn, ribbon, or string to the top if you like.
Below are some ideas for bookmarks that can get your creative juices flowing. Let's have some fun with this :-)
