It's going to be a very easy swap.

1. Make 10 Flowers using paper/fabric/ribbon etc. ...whatever you'd like to make them from. Use light, bright Spring colors. You can send more and you will get back as many as you send. You can't make less. Flowers have to be "3-D"...not flat! They have to be at least 2 layers if they are made of paper.
2. Put them into a ziploc with your name on the outside and mail them to me
Rebecca McDaniel
310 Savannah Circle
Calera, AL 35040
3. After I receive all of them ...I will sort and send them back out the following week.
4. Please mail in the $5 Priority Box as this will protect the flowers that are fuller. Make sure you get a DC and post it on the thread when you mail them to me and I will do the same when I send them back.
5. Send enough return postage so that I can send them back to you in the same type of Priority Box don't forget the postage for the DC. Whatever you spend to ship them to me should be enough for me to return them to you!
6. Please check in and let me know when you receive them back from me.
7. No FLAKERS please. I consider extremely late mailers the same as FLAKERS and will put you on the flaker list...as this would hold up the entire swap... if you mail past the due date I will send your flowers back to you!
The whole point is for us to have a good time! Flakers just add stress to the whole group so PLEASE don't sign up if you don't think you can follow through.

SIGN UPS: OPEN
WILL CLOSE: SOON
DUE: Must be received by me no later than MARCH 4th (Monday)
RETURN: In the mail and back out to you no later than MARCH 11th (Monday)

ENJOY...

Who will join me???

Here are some pictures to help you. There are lots of tutorials on youtube about how to hand make beautiful 3 dimensional flowers.

I'd love to join. Is there a size minimum, maximum? If we send all paper, do we get all paper back or a mixture?

Welcome Traci, Alicia & OHscrappylady~ No size minimum/maximum. And no you won't get back all paper if you send all paper. I'm hoping that people who can do ribbon will do ribbon and people who can do paper will do paper and we'll all get a mixture of everything.

Hope this helps ...if anyone else has any questions just let me know! Thanks for joining me

I have a stamp/die set that makes layered flowers. So they are stamped, then heat embossed, then cut out and popped up for the 3D look.

If this will be okay, then I will join.

Should all 10 flowers be the same color?

If Jean joins, then I will join too! lol

I think I will do flowers like what I sent Traci a couple weeks ago. Or, atleast I think I sent some to her....

But my one concern is that they can't be crushed....so if everyone isn't having their flowers returned in a little box, like the $5 priority box...then maybe not a good idea for me to do.

You can check them out while you are at your sister's and let me know what you think.... cuz I can do flatter styles too, if necessary. But I do really want to do those cupped little flowers, if possible.

I was planning on doing these --> Crafteer Misadventures - Rose

They would also crush in a folder. Should I do a different one?

That is one pretty flower Alicia and I would prefer to receive fluffy flowers such as that....so I hope everyone signing up will say they are fine with the $5 box or similar box instead of a pkg.

Jean~ I would love to have you! Thanks so much. They do not have to all be the same color.

Gwynne~ I would love to have you as well! I think that everyone has to package to the best of their ability to make sure that the flowers are not crushed. I would hate for that to happen. I will send them back in the appropriate boxes to make sure they are not crushed on return.

Alicia~ Love that flower. You should make that one for sure.

ScrapyPiggy~ Welcome to the swap.

So excited! Can't wait to get started. Have a great night ladies

Alicia, Are those the same ones you made for the swap we did last year? If so, the photo does no justice to the real one. Her flowers were amazing.

I am making flowers like this or this.

The flowers that I am going to make are rather large.

There are 5 layers starting from 1" to 4". 50 times thru the Cuttlebug, my arms are going to be tiredBlushing Blushing

I think they will be pretty big on cards but will be okay for layouts.
So I am only going to layer 4 of the 5 and let you decide if you want to add that last layer.


Off to start on theseBigGrin

Here is a sample of the flowers. Pretty big for a card so I will leave off the larger flower but will include it. I am making them in various colorsBigGrin
