+litefoot13 Posted April 14, 2010 Share Posted April 14, 2010 All right...I'm new to this geocaching thing, and I've been thinking about swag. I've cruised the forums and googled a number of things, and I've been considering what I want to have on hand to give out. My sibs will probably prefer to find cool things in a dollar store to put in, but I like to handmake stuff for other people. I don't like to do the same thing over and over, so I'll probably have a variety. To get down to the heart of the matter, I've actually narrowed down my many ideas into a couple of possibilities. I want to know, before I make up too much of any one thing, if these ideas are cool, or if they are totally lame and not worth putting my effort into. I'm an artist...in many different mediums. (I'm actually considering, after I get some more experience under my belt, of creating an art-themed cache.) One of the main things I'm considering is hand-drawn/painted bookmarks. I did some the other day for my family that I think turned out really cool. They are probably approximately 4 inches long by 1.5-2 inches wide. They are laminated and hole punched in one end for the fibers to tie through. I would probably put them in a ziploc bag, so as to protect them from the weather. On one side would be a drawn or painted image, and on the other would most likely be my name and symbol. I am also considering doing paintings on miniature canvasses sold at the craft store. They are tiny, probably 3x3 inches. I would probably reserve those for caches I am particularly impressed by. *grins* Non-art ideas I am considering are friendship bracelets, miniature polymer clay sculptures, and amigurumi (crocheted animals/foods/thing) made from embroidery thread. Or yarn, I suppose, if the cache is large enough for it. Part of the reason I'm considering creating such a variety is so that I have something to fit in any type of cache. The other part is that I get bored doing the same thing over and over. *grins* Would these be good items to use? In your opinion, would you enjoy finding any of these things in a cache? (I realize that everyone's opinion will be different...I just want to get some feedback before I put a lot of my time into it. ^^) Quote Link to comment
