Option 1

If you don't have social media and have sent me mail to show in a video ( 1 shaker, 2 bag toppers) please let me know when you sent your mail. In the email, include a picture of the items you created for the swap.

Once I receive all mail I will go ahead and partner everyone that has entered. Postmark date is December 4 (so will give it a week after that date to see if I have received all the mail)

You will then get be emailed your partners name and info, and you will be sending the swap you made directly to them.

If you have social media and have posted showing your swap creations, email me and let me know where you have posted. Include your social media handle so I can find your posting.

Please ensure that in the post you mention that it is your - entry for the swap hosted by @lizthepaperproject and make sure that you use the #lizthepaperprojectswaps in the post.

IF you have also been kind enough to send me mail, please let me know when you sent it, so I can have an idea when to expect it. 


I will update this post once I have received all mail / have seen all the social media posts. I will email you details of where to send your swap to your partner. Expect to hear back from me by December 13.


Hi Friends! 

I am so excited about this. I have been trying to figure out how everyone can take part in my new monthly swaps. I hope that it works out just as lovely as I have imagined it! haha. So here is what I am thinking. 

Each month I will have a new swap item idea to share with you. If you want to take part in the swap, all you have to do is let me know in that month's post / video. I wanted a chance for you to get inspired by all the lovely creators / crafters out there and also meet some new friends! I have said it many times, crafters / creators are the most amazing people I have had the chance to connect with and I love being part of this community.

If you have social media use the #lizthepaperprojectswaps  so that we can see what you are making. Remember to tag me on instagram / facebook @lizthepaperproject

You can also share your swap pictures if you would like on my facebook page. 

So the idea is to use your stash, get your items out and ready to make something fun, quick and that you enjoy. Make it in your own style. If you are a subscriber to my YouTube channel you know the style of crafting I enjoy and since I have you as a subscriber, I am sure you enjoy the same. 

Here are the details for the first swap I will be hosting:

Be a subscriber to my YouTube channel and / or Instagram

18 or older to take part

Make the swap items for that month - send me one to show and make sure to have one ready to send to your swap partner. (You only send 1 to me, you will send one to your partner after) 

I will match you with a partner(s) in your own country (or the closest one to you, this is to help to keep shipping costs down) 

If you are ok to swap internationally, please let me know when you send your swap mail sample.

For this month November, your swap will include:

- 1 Handmade shaker - 2 Handmade bag toppers

- Plus send 1 de-stash item to your partner: example: stickers sheet, sequins mix, or die cuts; something for your partner to use in their own crafty projects. (something you might have an extra of and would like to share)

- Sign up by email by November 20th. Email me at:

For ideas on how to make these, I have a video showing how to make Easy Holiday Shakers and Bag. But you can make these, however you enjoy making them!.

In your mail, please remember to write an email where I can reach you to let you know who your partner is, and where to send your swap to.

I will send everyone that sends me the swap sample mail a free digital for that month, and maybe, if time permits, one of you will also get a swap from me. :-)

This swap shares being mailed to me should be postmarked by Dec 4, 2021 (I had to make this one short because we are already mid month) This will give me time to film it so everyone can see what you made, and partner you up, so you can get something before Christmas!! yay!

The next months swap will be open for the entire month, to give everyone more time to send things in.

Any questions? please send me an email

Have fun everyone! Happy Crafting!

EASY To Make Shaker Embellishments and Bag Topper Ideas

Getting into the spirit of it all, I have started making my holiday crafts items. I am hoping to make enough to send in my happy mail packs this year. I really enjoyed making these quick and super easy shakers. No special tools or materials required!!! These are my first one's and I really love how they came out. The best part is, it takes no time at all once you've gathered the simple items you can use.

I hope to be sharing many more easy and quick holiday crafts with you these next few weeks, and that you get inspired to get creative. 

For these shakers I used some printable images from Digital Collage Club, (I have some coupon codes if you are interested in purchasing items from their shop, check my coupons tab above) Plus I used some items I had at home and some of these cute little paper bags I made with my cutting die. If you are interested in some of the bags, I will have some available in my shop. They are so cute and can be used for some many fun crafty projects.

I do also love how my bag toppers are coming along. These are also super easy and fun to put together. See the video for more details.

Happy Crafting!

I fell in love with this super fun album /
Journal as soon as I came across it! I’ve seen similar ones before made with regular sheets of paper but I love how it turns out with cardstock.paper. Check out my craft with me video here:

I am definitely going to be making many more for gifts for the holidays! So fun! I hope you enjoy the video and find some inspiration. 

Happy crafting!
