    Mini Book Necklaces~Due April 24

    Swap Due Date - April 24.
    Number of ART - 3 for 3
    Number of USA participants - unlimited
    Number of International participants : have to pay for retunes.
    Media or must have: Mixed

    Mini Book Necklaces.



    Theses are little books. No need to do art in them, there for the new owner to add pictures, art or what ever they like.

    How big or small can your books be.

    Smallest 1 x 1 smaller then that is just worthless. What you going to put in that bird seed.

    Largest 2 x 2 any bigger and its just tacky.

    Thickness ˝ or soo. ( if it so thick that you need to lift weights to wear it, you might want to rethink it. )
    Pages ( not counting the attached pages ) 6 - 20 This also comes down to the thickness, if its more paper then book maybe rethink. Also the type of paper for book up to you. So thick card stock paper less pages but thicker book, typing paper more pages fit Thinner book .
    Soo if all together your book is closer to ˝ your fine, if its looking like a 1” you might want to lessen the pages.

    Use what ever you like clay, ribbon , jewelry. Leather, fabric. Anything you like.
    You can have them close with clasp or ribbon or leave open.
    Necklace up to you ribbon or chain. Just make it so it can slide over neck.

    Links making mini books making if you have never made a book,

    Really only 3 things I ask
    1:read the above.
    2: That it fits in bobbled envelop or patted envelop
    3: fallow mailing instructions its been a bad habit lately be a good player.



    Remember to put your username and real name on card or paper in with art in the baggy.
    If you don’t I wont know who to give Itrade too, and the other players cant rep you love.
    Late art will be sent back and or in special circumstanced will be worked out as privet trade. I’m punctual girl and but at the sometime like everyone to get something. So with that said Please don’t mail 3 days before the due date you might not get to play with others!

    ALL Players

    Protect your ART in plastic baggy of some kind.
    Include a self-addressed label ( mailing label or paper with addressee )
    your user name on the back of the mailing envelopes .

    The Padded envelops or bubble envelops will be reused for you returns if possible, but frankly my post office hates that. Well the 1 lady is nutty B.

    US participants: Please include cash or postage in the amount of how much it cost you to mail to me. around $3.00-$4.00 for this swap.
    mailing label or paper with addressee

    International participants: For these larger swap I no longer can pay for retunes.
    PM me about prices and paypal or other options for paying for returns. ( I know Canada is about $9.50 USD)
    Please remember to give yourself time for mailing some country’s can take longer for art to get to me. I’m in the USA. Please put the name of the swap and your user name on the back of the mailing envelopes.


    When you receive your art for the swap, please remember to leave iTrader for the Host (me) and Rep Points for the people you received art from (That’s the YOU ROCK in blue)
    If you must withdraw its ok. Just tell me an I will take you off.
    Oh an extra art on theme and or cool doodads is wonderful , but certainly not mandatory nor expected for participation But I sure do looooove. lol

    Count me in, too, I always wanted to make some mini book necklaces but was waiting for an excuse to make some. Please let me know how much you will need for return postage, as I am an international participant.

    Lurking for now. I love bookmaking, but have never made tiny books. We'll see if I have time to try. If not, I'll still enjoy seeing what others post.

    Hi, everyone. Since this is my first time making mini books, I have started experimenting with different size ratios. Would you gals let me know which ratio would be your preferred? I have attached a pic of the trial folios held together by rubber bands, they are the trials, and will not go into the finished booklets.
