Stocking Swap

Hi Everyone........  I haven't posted for awhile but I really have been busy.
I entered a swap and it was a lot of fun.........
It was a Christmas Stocking Swap.

It was set up pretty  neat, it was set up in blocks of eight so you only had to make seven.  You have to send all seven of your item to one designated person along with a self addressed envelope with postage on it, she in return sends everyone their seven stockings from the people in their group.  It takes the mailing off of you and you only pay for your destination.  Sounds good.
Here is the stocking I made for the swap, this is my sample then I made 7 more just like it/

If anyone is interested in doing a swap, or has an idea for one please let me know.  I would love to do more. 
Gives you a chance to see other peoples work and makes for a great addition to friends collections.

It can be anything cards, journals, whatever.  They did give a  predetermined size 3 1/2 by 6.

Simple paper sack journal book

I made just a simple flat paper sack tag or journal book.
I cut the sack 5x5 and bound it on the side leaving only a pocket on top for tags or journaling

I made various tags for journaling or pictures to slide in the pocket

I made a simple closure out of chain, charm and paper clips
