1 deco booklet for one partner.

New or established origami pamphlet style deco.

New decos:

  • Use an 8.5 X 11 inch piece of paper or smaller, but no smaller than 6" X 9". Fold the sheet to make 8 panels. Pick from 2 kinds of cuts. The usual cut is in the middle of the folded paper, the other continues the cut to the end of the sheet. Here are some photos to demonstrate.

Cut along the red line.

Folded results.

You choose which cut you prefer.

  • A theme or open-theme, sender's choice.

  • Decorate the front and back pages (covers). Include the swap name, your mailing address and email on the back of the cover so your zine can be returned to you when complete. Or just your email and a note to email you for your current mailing address.

  • Do not glue your pages together. We must be able to unfold the deco to write our information on the back of our decorated page.

Please include your swap-bot user name on the back of the page you decorate (or on the front if you prefer).

Keep the embellishments slim so participants can use regular lettermail postage.

An example of a completed one-sheet collaborative booklet deco:

Here's a video example

A deco is sent around from artist to artist. Each person that receives the deco will decorate one page according to the theme of the booklet (if there is one) and put their contact information and name/username on their entry. Typically, each entrant in the “deco” must use one side of a page to express themselves.

PLEASE NOTE: As a host, I like to read all of the rating comments that come through. I live vicariously through the rating comments of all the participants. I would love to read about whose deco is received (the by: info--who created the deco) and what the theme is. 🤗 I will be making a list in the discussion section below.
