    Smile Ho Ho Ho Merry Christmas 4 x 4 Chunky Page Swap/Chunky Pages/Open/Due: Jan 25, 2022

    Due: January 25, 2022
    Number of pages: 3 or 6
    Ho Ho Ho Christmas Chunky Page 4 x 4 Swap

    It is time for my annual Christmas Chunky Page swap. This is a Christmas related swap; anything that has to do with Christmas.

    Chunkies should be 4 x 4 in size; securely made & sturdy. Embellishments are encouraged but if used they must be securely fastened & able to go through a mail machine with no problems. If you do add a lot of raised embellies or lots of fibers please remember to send a bit of extra postage to cover them going to a different artist. Please leave a half inch clear on the left side for binding purposes. Encase your chunky pages in protective plastic. Please use stickers minimally & especially not as the focal point. Please decorate the back side as well (can be more simple) & put your info on the back (Real name/A4A name/the swap name/chunky title/where you are from/date).

    Beings that this is an open medium swap, it must be noted that all artists will be mailed what comes in regardless of what medium they use. A HD/HP artist may end up getting a collage chunky page & vice versa. A collage artist may end up getting a HD/HP Chunky Page. If this issue is a big problem for you then you can private message me & I'll see what I can do but honestly, this swap was a blast the last few years & artists were happy with the returns they got regardless of what the medium was. This should be fun not gloom & doom....

    As far as envelopes are concerned; if you want me to re-use the envelope that you sent your swaps in I can do that or you can send a new envelope in with your swaps. Please make sure to send a LARGE ADDRESS LABEL so that your returns get back to you right away. Both US and international artists must pay for their own return postage; either well concealed cash (the amount that it took to mail your chunky pages to me)/US stamps/or you can private message me for my Pay Pal addy info. ESTIMATED postage costs:

    US $4.75-$5.75 for three pages/$5.75-$6 for six pages
    Not sure what international rates would be. You would need to check with your local post office to find that information out.

    Please mail chunky pages a week & half or two weeks before due date (even earlier due to heavy mail loads this time of year). I WILL BE SWAPPING OUT ON TIME. Host chunky pages are not mandatory but I would be tickled pink (or even red in this case) if I received one. Late chunky pages will be returned unswapped. No communication and no pages will result in Neutral ITrader. When you are ready to send please private message me for my addy info.

    If you have any questions, whatsoever, please feel free to ask. It is a good idea to go over the rules a couple of times so that you become comfortable in getting your swaps out appropriately. So let's make some fun!!

    In the past I used cardboard from cereal boxes to make my pages. Now we don't eat cereal. Any other suggestions for pages?

    I found a dog snack box and used that. the dog was with me when I cut up the box. She was disappointed that she got nothing. the box must have smelled good.

    Hi guys, sorry I haven't been very active on this thread, just so busy!! I plan on sending some invites out so hopefully we can get a few more players. I went through some old Christmas cards that I am going to cut up & use on my chunkies. I just love getting Christmas cards & there are so many neat ones out there. How are you guys coming along on your chunkies? Or have you even started?

    Please sign me up for this swap. It’s one of my favorite Christmas things. I use cracker boxes and tissue boxes if I don’t have cereal boxes. I never use boxes that have been in the fridge or freezer. They are yucky. Also greeting cards can be used for backing.

    Hey Maggie, Good to see you!! That is true, cereal boxes are so diversified!! I actually buy my chunky pages pre-made because I really like the sturdiness/thickness of the ones I get. You can get them in several colors, too.
