I would love to do a sentiment box swap.
My interpretation of a sentiment box is something between a handmade greeting card in a box and a mini scrapbook. There's an example of a box here.
Topic/theme could be anything from a forthcoming event (wedding, baby, etc..) to a simple reflection on life, love, childhood, marriage, work, school, kids, pets etc..
Perhaps it could be something made specifically for their partner, or something that their partner could use to send on to a friend etc.. (such as their partner's birthday, or a friend's wedding)
Maybe somebody is down in the dumps with the winter doldrums and needs a pick me up or a bit of 'sunshine' in a box! Or perhaps it would be a keepsake with space for the receiver to record special sentiments or achievements and even a photo or two.
There would be no extras allowed in the package and pals can only send one sentiment box. This should be made from stash preferably to keep costs down and if there's no extras it would therefore be light on postage too.
It wouldn't necessarilly be restricted to card making/scrapbooking supplies - book binders might have fun with this, or even fiber artists could make their own fabric, felt, knit or crochet books with pockets for handwritten notes etc.
The boxes don't have to be complicated. A simple slider with a sleeve is all you need!
I'm new to the papercrafts board (I'm usually hanging out in the fiber boards) and perhaps this has been discussed as a possible swap before. Or maybe not. But I do love papercrafting, it's where I started out on this crazy crafting journey I'm on and I enjoy making small boxes and cards within cards. They're great for birthday's and everything else come to think of it!
Anyway, just thought I would throw it out there. Now be gentle...
