The Whole Works Halloween Swap
Halloween will soon be upon us and I thought we should celebrate an expanded Halloween Dottee doll swap.
-1 Dottee Halloween themed
-2 matchboxes-Inchies work really well in matchboxes especially one's like the ideas in the chunky book swap.I also have a wee stash of charms with work great in matchboxes too.
Useful matchbox template can be found here
-1 4x4 chunky page
-2 Halloween themed ATC's
This would give swappers a range of things to celebrate Halloween hence "The Whole Works Halloween Swap"
I realize that not everyone sews and creates with paper so just partners can negotiate their comfort zone-just want everyone to have fun ;)
Swap closed.Partners are
Tiffany Noelle-Essex Debs
Have fun lots of pics please!
Send out 5th October
I had a heads up there was a Halloween themed dotee doll swap coming up, so I've already started sketching out some ideas
The additional items make it lots of fun, and it might be a good idea to continue that. i.e. always make it "dotee doll and something" to keep it interesting
Name: Heather (bindiibabe)
Location: Scotland, UK
? International shipping: Don't mind
Happy to swap with Newbie?: Yeah, sure! We all gotta start somewhere
Name: Elaine S
Location: Alabama, USA
? International shipping: Sure, I can swing it this time
Happy to swap with Newbie?: Why not? Technically, I think I'm still sorta one myself. Maybe? lol
Gotta warn my partner...I just don't do cutesy. I'll keep from sending you into therapy, I hope, but I like scary
So Elaine's ok with receiving that one created from decomposing flesh then?? good good!
Sorry I'm stupid, can I just go over what we are including in this swap:
- 1 x dotee doll (halloween themed)
- 2 x matchboxes
- 2 x ATC's (to fit in matchboxes?)
- 1 X 4' x 4' chunky book page (halloween themed)
Is the aim of this swap to trade items and create a chunky book? If I only have 1 chunky book page do I then have to make the other 7 or so pages?

? International shipping: Yup
Happy to swap with Newbie?: Yup
I do cutesy rather than scary.
Bindi, you know, you can come really close to that look with some liquid latex and the right shades of paint. *evil grin* Just sayin'

Happy to swap with Newbie?: Sure!
? International shipping: yes
Happy to swap with Newbie?: yes
I'd like to make stuff out of fabric as paper isnt really my thing, maybe a plushie monster thing
Elaine; I was just gonna skin the kid we have stuffed in the freezer at work...
I *did* warn him to stop bugging me, he just wouldn't listen!!
The one page book didn't occur to me Libby! U could just frame it? Pin it to an inspiration board? Make a book cover where you can add pages to it over time ( like when other swaps call for 1 page ;P )?
I've tidied up the header box to clarify things.
Libby ATC's won't fit in matchboxes.
4x4 book pages can be strung anywhere to add a decorative feel not only used in books.
I have boxes of Christmas decorations and after this swap hope to have a similar one for Halloween.
inchies are mini atc's? I've never done an inchie before. also im not too keen on doing atc's lol didnt like making them for the atc swap.
I'll have to watch this one
Sorry I got my atc's confused with my inches. I agree with Nikki, I think I'd rather do a plushie monster than ATC's but I guess that is something we can decide with our partners.
I forgot to add, I like scary and cutesy...Not sure how well I'd make scary though...but I'd try XD
