I joined a sample book swap at Swap-Bot a while back and made this sample book for my partner. The description of the swap was to make a book with samples in it. It could be samples of anything.
I decided to raid my paper crafting stash, as my partner likes paper crafting, too. I tried, for the most part, to be clever how I attached things to the pages. I wanted it to be pretty to look at, but also easy to get off.
I picked things I knew my partner would like, according to her profile. I also included some surprises. One of the fun things about swapping is when you receive something you haven't used before and it introduces you to something new.
I just realized that I am going to have to learn a little more about photography to take some appealing pictures. Photographing my book was quite a challenge.
