Details of swap:
We all need a little inspiration on our side wherever we go. Whether to kickstart a new art project, start a new craft, tide over an emotional crisis, or even inspiration on how to build upon fun and happiness.
In this swap, you will be crafting a box that is able to hold at least A4 size and 4" deep
(note the possible shipping costs of large packages). You later fill the box up with things that would be of inspiration to your partner. The box should be 1/2 to 3/4 filled so your partner can add on further. Being a craft swap of course, at least 2 medium OR 4 small items must be handcrafted
and related to inspiration or your partner.
For example, choosing from one (or more) of your partner's sources of inspiration like "snow", you could craft snowflake-confetti, snowman plushies, snowflake necklaces and so on. Inside the box, you can decorate related to the theme. Remember the need to have the contents as prompts and sources of inspiration. You could possibly add prints of winter images, quotes about snow, poetry about snow, art pieces, and draw other little details or beautiful things you feel could be of inspiration. You can also include craft starting points like scrapbook patterns/layouts, craft kits (handmade or otherwise)! (:
NOTE: Please do not send CD mixes as it is not allowed!
Both partner and organizer MUST be informed of a D/C and/or tracking number. If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:
