View Full Version : Chunkies: Gotta Have Coffee - Due Jan. 10th

10-11-2008, 10:55 AM
Swap Due Date: January 10
Signup/Withdrawal Date: January 1
Number of Chunky Pages: 4 for 4, or 8 for 8
Number of Participants: unlimited

Gotta Have Coffee

In this swap, each page should relate to coffee. Some ideas - espresso, cappucino, coffee beans, drinking coffee, brewing coffee, coffee cups, cans of coffee, coffee pots, coffee recipes.

You'll be making 4 OR 8 pages to send in . . . and you'll receive the same number of pages in return, each page from a different artist.

The due date is January 10th. Please mail early so that they arrive by that date.

This swap is for 4"x4" chunky book pages. This is an OPEN MEDIA chunky book. Anything you are comfortable with works. Please make sure your pages are neat. Send in pages that you'd like to receive in return.

ALL pages must be original artwork. You can make similar pages but no copies.

Don't leave the backs blank. Include at least your name & artist ID on the back of each page.

Make sure the pages are somewhat thick and not flimsy. Recycled cardboard food boxes works great or you can use several pieces of cardstock glued together.

Please do not place chunky embellishments on the left edges, as this is where people usually choose to bind them. Everyone will be binding their own returns.

Remember, these are CHUNKY pages. They should have fibers, tags, beads etc hanging from the edges. The pages themselves should not be so thick that they can't close comfortably into a book.

Each page should be enclosed in a ziplock or sandwich type baggie to keep them from sticking together.

U.S. Postage:
Include a self addressed envelope big enough for your returns.When you take your chunky book pages to have them mailed, BEFORE sealing the envelope, have it weighed and then add the same amount of loose postage to the envelope. Or, if you like, enclose $2 for 4 pages or $3 for 8 pages.

International Postage:
International players can send U.S. currency, or use PayPal. PayPal will require a 50-cent bump, to cover their fee.

Everyone, including me, can only sign up for eight maximum pages, so we reach maximum variety in returns!

When you are ready to mail them, please PM me for my address

I enjoy making chunky books, please add me to this swap. I have to admit that I don't drink coffee. ( I get my caffeine with diet Coke.) However, coffee is grown in my county so already I am thinking of possibilities.

Leave about 1/2 incg on the left side for binding. I'm going to let everyone bind their own so don't punch any holes.

The chunky bits look like this (this is a bad scan, I was not at home for this one and didn't use the same scanner):

For some pages I forgot the binding on the left and glued some coffee beans maybe too close from the left edge... :confused: sorry about that! anyway you can remove them easily.

And by the way... they are gone!

Batraplume, I LOVE those pages! I can't believe I didn't think of including coffee filters! Great work!

awesome pages Batraplume - I hope I get one (should have sent a bribe in my envie - wait I can send one with my Travel the World cards;))

Batraplume
01-04-2009, 08:11 AM
Thank you all! I should have included a bribe in my envie too because I love everyone's pages! This thread has a yummy coffee smell... ;)

Sophie, coffee filters and coffee beans were the first elements I wanted to use on my pages. I also wanted to use some ground coffee but I had no idea of how to glue it on the pages!

goodmorningstarshine
01-04-2009, 12:18 PM
I used ground coffee! I mixed it with ultra-thick embossing powder and then melted several layers onto my pages. It made my house smell like burnt coffee. Ground coffee does not liketh the heat gun!

Here are the first two I have made for this swap. I just need to add the chunky embellishments on the edge.

How creative!

Unfortunately I have to withdraw as I have run out of time. If you will let mail them by the end of the week I can still get a few done but I do not want to cause a problem. So let me know if that is possible and if not I totally understand. I just couldn't find the energy over Xmas. Margaret

Love your pages, Coffeelatte. I really like the little stars on them. R they brads, sequins or stickers? They really set off the brown tone quite nicely! Great job!:jiggy::yes:

coffeelatte
01-09-2009, 11:07 PM
I used sequins. About 4 years ago a coworker gave me two plastic bags full of sequins, mainly stars. I've been using them over time. I also pick up different types if I see them in thrift stores.
