New Zealand Handmade Christmas Ornament Swap

Swap is now closed ~ Swap is now closed ~ Swap is now closed

At this time of the year it is very easy to become overloaded! That is why we have made this swap as easy as possible for this time of the year! It’s a very small swap.. so small in fact, that it’s made to hang from a Christmas tree… and one could be on your Christmas tree if you’d like to join us!!

The swap is open to all those with a blog in New Zealand and overseas.

To participate you must be willing to mail overseas and honour your swap commitment.

The details: All players will be allocated one (only) swap partner. You will send directly to your partner and she will send directly to you.

You will make and send one only gorgeous handcrafted Christmas tree ornament and one lovely Christmas Card for your partner . The ornament should be made to hang on a Christmas tree and should be handmade by you with love and care. Make something special that you would love to receive yourself. Please do not cut out a paper star and send it to your partner.)

All ornaments must be mailed by the 1st December and should be suitable to send in the mail. Postage to overseas will need to be sent by Airmail, so our partners receive their gifts by Christmas day to hang on their tree.

New Zealand Handmade will post links to more ornaments and some tutorials over the next few weeks and some finished ideas just in case you need some extra inspiration. Once you start receiving your swaps we will add them to a flickr album for all to see!

So…. if you would like a small tree ornament handmade especially for you by another friendly blogger sign up now!

Please take the button from the sidebar (or at the top of this post) to add to your blog and let’s have some fun making our Christmas trees the best ever this Christmas!

Sign ups will take place here until 23rd October.
