Earlier this month I took part in the lovely #StationeryLoversXmas swap organised by the ladies behind the blogs Claireabelle Makes and Mab is Mab. There was a round up blog post on the Claireabelle Makes blog showing some of the things that were sent and received. I thought I would share the wrapped items I sent to my swap partner with you.
The swap basically involved exchanging stationery items with a partner that you were allocated. I jumped at the chance as I love stationery and receiving things in the post. In the end though, I actually found the buying and wrapping part so much fun I sort of forgot I would get anything in return.
I was lucky to have been given quite a lot of information about my swap partners stationery likes, so was able to use that as a guide when buying the items. I didn't take a before wrapping photo of the items I sent but they included a notebook, stickers, stamps and washi tape. I even knew my swap partners favourite colour (turquoise) so incorporated it into the wrapping.
I received these lovely notecards above in the swap. The box they came in is so nice I will use it long after the cards have run out. My favourite bit of the swap was actually the letter my partner sent me. I love that she decorated her own writing paper. We both want to remain pen pals to, so I could not have asked for a better outcome.
A big thanks to Claire of Claireabelles Makes and Emma of Mab is Mab for organising the stationery swap. Such a great way to top up my stationery collection and connect with the online stationery lovers community.
