Etsy Ireland Craft Exchange

Hello all, Clare here from Petal Avenue to introduce the Etsy Ireland Craft Exchange. This is a "pay it forward" kind of project, in which you give a free handmade gift and receive one in return. Anyone from the Etsy Ireland team can take part and you can give whatever manner of gift you wish, so long as it is handmade.

So here are the rules:
  • Sign up using the form below by Monday 6th February
  • I will pair you with another member of them team and send you an email with your partner's details by Wednesday 8th February
  • Create your gift and post it by Wednesday 29th February (ooh leap year!)
  • When you receive your gift, take some photos! I will arrange a post where we can share all the pictures
A few tips to help you get started:
  • If you enjoy making a variety of crafty items, choose something light for the gift to save money on postage
  • The gift you give does not have to be overly expensive, as we all know, a handmade gift is more special
  • Why not send an email to your partner to introduce yourself?
By pressing submit on this form you are committing to creating a handmade gift and posting it to your assigned partner. You will receive a crafty gift in return.
Note: the gift you receive may not necessarily be from the same person you have given your gift to.

If you have any questions you can email me at or contact me through my blog or etsy shop.
