    Chunkies: Magic Chunky Book Swap - due Aug 8

    Swap Due Date - August 8 2008
    Signup/withdraw date - July 20, 2008
    Returns mailed - August 13, 2008
    Number of Pages - 4 for 4 OR 8 for 8
    Number of participants - 50 maximum

    MAGIC CHUNKY PAGES


    This is a 4 for 4 OR 8 for 8 swap for 4x4 inch (10 x10 cm) Chunky Book Pages. The theme is "MAGIC" -- think Magicians, Magic Shows, Slight of Hand, Houdini, Wizards, Super Natural Powers, Potions, Spells, Dark Arts, Alchemy all kinds of Magic. You will make and send 4 pages or 8 pages, and you will receive an equal number in return.

    Pages: All media are welcome. Each page should be decorated on the front and the back. Your major effort should be made on the front, and your artist information will go on the back (at a minimum: your UserID, the name of this swap, date -- but you can include other information too, as you like). Please decorate your backs too, but it's not necessary to make them as detailed or elaborate as the front -- just don't leave them plain!! No copies -- all pages must be original (but may be similar!).

    Binding: Leave 1/2 an inch (1.3 cm) on the left side free of embellishments for binding. You will bind your own pages.

    Base & Embellishments: Please use a sturdy base for your pages -- cardboard from food boxes, mat or mount board, or several layers of thick cardstock would be ideal. You want the page to stand up by itself without bending. Feel free to use any embellishments you choose -- fibers, chunky bits, beads, whatever! But please do not put any embellishments on the left edge, and use surface embellishments no more than 1/8 of an inch (.3 cm) thick.

    Shipping: Please include a Self Addressed Envelope or a large label with your address on it. I will most likely be reusing the envelopes you sent to me!


    Return Postage: ALL participants must pay for their own return postage. You may pay by sending Canadian postage stamps, well concealed US dollars, or by paypal. ( I am going to double check these rates at the post office this week)

    US participants: UPDATED pricing: under 250 grams will be $6.45, up to 500 grams is $8.55 and over 500 grams $10.70.. I think even 8 pages will be less than 250 grams.


    Canadian participants: $1.15/$3.60
    All other participants: $5.00/$6.50

    Paypal: If you want to use paypal, please PM me for details.

    Oh, I'd like to participate Susan. I'm gonna PM you about sending you extra $ to get mine through Fedex or similar if it's not too much trouble - I'll totally understand if it's gonna put you out - don't want that either. It's just that the Canadian postman does not like me.

    I've decided on some specifics for my cards... So far I am going to do a Magic Lantern and Genie, A Magicians Wand and Black Hat, a Witch's Book of Spells, and a Wizard with the Hat and Cape. I love glitter and will be using lots of glitter!

    Sounds really cool Stormarela. I think this theme lends itself to a great deal of variety. The returns will certainly be spectacular.

    yay for glitter!

    i wanted to share this link . . . this is where i've found some great images of vintage magicians/magic shows to use in my pages . . . it's a circus museum, and all of the images are save-able and printable!

    now, of course, i don't want us to all have pages that are exactly the same, but heck. this is too cool not to share!

    Wow Amy, that site is fantastic! I just spent way too much time looking at the clowns! Think of how many different themes can use these posters. I can see a Circus Chunky in the future now!
    Thanks for sharing the treasure!!!

    no problem! you know, i do image searches online ALL the time, and none of those images EVER come up in specialized searches through google . . . and i stumbled on the site completely by accident one day when i was looking for rubber stamp stores or something unrelated.

    there IS so much there . . . . i love it! hee hee!
