This month’s #bringbackpaper activity is here, and it’s a stationery swap!
It’s been a while since I have organised a stationery swap, and I am still aware that there might be postage delays or restrictions globally, but I know so many of you love these so we will give it a go. It’s usually the stationery swaps that are the most popular of all of the activities I run (aside from pen pal sign ups, of course). I can see why they are so popular, as we all love the idea of a package containing gorgeous stationery arriving at our doors and want to rummage about in our own stationery collections and shops to choose treats for others. The stationery swap is a chance for you to spread some happiness with happy mail as you can enjoy putting together a parcel full of pretty papery goodies for your swap partner and then you get to unwrap their offerings as a treat for yourself.
It is a simple activity to get involved with. All you need to do is pop a package of stationery bits and bobs together and send them out into the world to your swap partner so that they have received them by the end of August. You can include whatever you like, from notepaper to jotters to stickers to pens to clips to washi to postcards – it really can be whatever suits you. We’re not talking huge amounts of stuff here, just a pretty little parcel to brighten someone’s day, spending around £5.
The swap is open to everyone worldwide, aged 18 and over. If you would like to share details, do post a photo of your stationery bundle with the #BringBackPaper hash tag or pop it in the Bring Back Paper Facebook group and we can all ooh and aah over it with you! And don’t forget to check out the stationery addict mugs and tees over in the shop!
Get Involved in the Stationery Swap
To get involved, email me with your name and address at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I will then pair you up and get back to you with your swap partner’s details as soon as I have done so. It’d be really helpful if you could let me know whether you’d be willing to or would prefer to post internationally, please.
It’s open until 28th August 2020.
Is this something you like the sound of? Would you like to receive a bundle full of surprise stationery this month?
