4" Swaps from 2013

I received wonderful 4" Swaps last year from members of our Craft Group.
Of course there was always the choice to join in with the swap.
Inevitably we sometimes received more than one from the same person over the course of the year as not everyone entered the swap every month.
 They are all fabulous and I love the collection of different styles from friends.





As you can see from the book above I adhered each to black card and bound them with black ribbon as I could not find book rings big enough. 
I used mini bull dog clips and chain as a closure.

Pennant Swap

February has swept in along with the start of our monthly Craft Club meetings.  It was great to see everyone again and catch up on all our craft buys.  
This year we decided to hold a swap again, we had two templates and could make either to swap. 
The fabulous pennants below from left to right are by:-  Annie, Tanya, Liz and Pamela

Next is a gorgeous pennant by Linda on the left and mine on the right:-

As you can see they are all very different using several techniques.
It will be up to each member at the end of the year to join their swaps together to create a banner for their craft room or keep them in a book using book rings.
I shall be posting photos of the 4" swaps I received in 2013 over the next few days.  Until then....
