Then have you tags posted to your partner by the 11th (this gives you all enough time to get to the post office :) 

Once the swap is closed I will partner you all off and post it online & email you all.
then you can ship your tags off to your partner.
All addresses should be kept private ( no posting them publicly )

What to do
Use your favourite standard size shipping tags

I am going to let whoever wins the blog giveaway choose there on goodies from My favorite craft site the link is below

you can spend £25.00 on the web site on whatever products you wish.
If the winner is from the UK then I will get the items delivered straight to you.
If  your from overseas I will place your order, then ship it to you, as cutting edge crafts has free P&P so i doubt  they will post internationally.
After I draw the winner i will contact you asking what items you want, i will need a good description and the SKU number.
