Punk Projects Button Swap!

I was brainstorming ideas for my blog with my (awesomely creative) Mom, and she suggested I do another swap. What better than a button swap?

I use buttons a lot and I'm sure you use them some too, so with this swap we each get some new buttons! This month I will be posting some tutorials for button crafts, making your own buttons etc to get you excited for the button swap. Keep reading to get info on how to sign up!

The fine print:

  • Sign ups to join the Button Swap are open until January 20th!
  • After sign ups close, you have until January 31st to send your buttons to me! In the package you must include 10 buttons and a pre-stamped, self addressed envelope.
  • Why pre-stamped? 
  • Once I receive all of the buttons I am going to mix them up and send you back buttons from other people in your self addressed envelope. However it would get pretty expensive for me to ship them all back to you, so I'm asking you to pre-stamp/pre pay for shipping.
  • This is a free swap except for the cost of shipping. I'm afraid I have to limit this to US participants only so that all of the buttons arrive around the same time frame.
  • I've gotten a few international artists who would really love to participate. If you're one of them, I'm simply asking that you be willing to pay for a faster shipping than the normal international shipping.
  • You can use buttons from your stash, vintage buttons, handmade buttons or go out and buy some new buttons. Whatever you like.

How to join: Just email me and I will let you know where to send your package. (your package should include a prestamped, self addressed envelope and 10 buttons)
In order to be entered into the swap, you must email me so that I can send you my address!

I'm excited about this! As I said, I love buttons and getting mail. :) -Katie

  1. ohhh darn i was getting all excited about this swap.....:(

    1. Oh, I'm sorry Sophie! International mailing just takes so much longer I didn't want others to have to wait on the buttons. If you're willing to pay for a faster shipping email me and I'll let you join in!

    2. Cool! My envelope is ready!! It will be leaving monday! :)

  2. Count me in! Have one question though....if you mix them up then there is a chance we will get our own buttons back?

    1. I am going to try and make sure no one gets their own buttons back!

  3. I love this idea and we'd love to join in.

  4. Great idea Katie!
    Kinda sad I can't join in but I totally agree, international shipping just sucks. :P
    I'll spread the word for you. :)

  5. I am in this will be fun and I have some old buttons to share - e-mail is sent - thanks Katie

  6. I'm in! Sending you an email right now! I'm so excited to post about this on Monday!
