    COINS! - Anything goes! Due Date: May 12, 2023

    Due Date: May 12, 2023
    Withdraw by Date: Anytime - just please communicate
    Number of Cards: 3/3 or 6/6
    Number of Participants: Unlimited
    Media: Open (no prints, digital, white backgrounds or photography)

    Theme: Coins - Any theme you like!!

    We seem to have very few coin swaps at the moment, so how about a nice simple coin swap?
    Easy-Peasy Lemon-squeezy!
    Create 3 or 6 coins, all different, with any theme you want; anything goes, so get creative!!


    Swap Requirements:

    Coins need to have a diameter of 2.5 inches. If you do not have a 2.5 circle die or punch, please
    make sure you cut your circles neatly. They do not have to be perfect, but they shouldn't look
    sloppy. (if you need any I can mail you some; just ask me!)

    Original artwork only
    3:3 or 6:6 (hostess cards are never a requirement, but would be treasured)
    Good craftsmanship: send in something that you would be excited to see in your return envelope.
    Please make sure your coins are sturdy. They need to be thicker than just one sheet of card stock.
    Each coin needs to be in its own protective sleeve.
    I will do my very best to swap effort for effort and like for like.
    Please include swap name, your username, real name, and location on the back of each coin.


    Mailing:
    Canadian Participants - Please include a Canadian stamp.
    US Participants – Please include a forever stamp or well concealed $1.
    International Participants - I will cover your mailing cost this time.
    PLEASE INCLUDE A RETURN MAILING LABEL WITH YOUR ADDRESS WRITTEN CLEARLY ON IT;
    I WILL PROVIDE THE ENVELOPES.

    I am in CANADA, so please give yourself lots of mailing time.

    When you are ready to send in your coins, please private message me for my mailing address.

    When you receive your coins, please leave itrader for your hostess (that would be me) and "you rock" points to the players you received artwork from.

    So... who would like to play?

    I feel like I don't understand, am I taping these to a 2.5 x 3.5 card? Or am I just sending an envelope with some coin shaped and colored circles inside?

    To clarify, I've never swapped or traded anything besides ATCs so I don't really know how this stuff works.

    Hi Beverley - I would love to join your coin swap! Thanks for the invite.

    AlanaCat - Coins are 2.5 inch round - but otherwise are the same as an ATC. You can draw or paint, collage or do other mixed media design or image on the coin.

    Oh if you're ok with that I would love that, I can use them to trace more shapes into cards for the future, I can DM you my address if you're alright with that. ^-^
    Also these are blank though right? Getting these I'd use them to make coins for this current swap.
