Charm Swap and June Pretty Paper Boutique tag

*** CLOSED***
I am so excited to offer a Charm Swap on my Blog. I absolutely love charms that hang off tags, mini’s, pages etc. and can’t seem to get enough of them. There are so many kinds available that it is impossible to collect them all.

This swap will be open to everyone to join. (US, Canada and International)

This will be a 7+1 swap, you will get one back.
• Each Charm should include a swivel clasp, garment pin or something to attach it to a tag or mini.
• A charm, either handmade or store bought (attached to the garment pin or swivel clasp)
• A bead or button.
• Please include your name and youtube/blog name.

Please be fair to everyone participating. If you’re unable to continue the swap, please notify me asap. I would like for everyone who has signed up to be able to receive as many as they have sent back.

Include a SASE with at last the same amount of postage as it took to mail me. Also include 2 extra stamps if needed. I will send them back if not needed. PLEASE NO METERED strips.

I will have 3 groups of 8 and will sign people up in the order of emails received. PLEASE FORWARD YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS. I will close the swap once the groups are filled.

Thank you for participating. If you don’t have my address, please email me once you are ready to mail out and I will send to you. My email address is cindy@smsrecruiters.com.

These need to be in my hands no later than July 31st, I would like to mail out on August 1st.

I made these tags for the swap on the Pretty Paper Boutique. The object was to use a dress form and fabric. I had a lot of fun coming up with this tag, I hope that my swap partners like it.

I made this card for a 50th anniversary using the Le Romantique collection from Graphic 45. I love this paper. The flower was made my Cara http://Love4Memories.wordpress.com. She sent this to me when I participated in a tag swap, I love how she made it.
