1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Brandy snifter Santa pattern needed on: November 29, 2011 04:53:11 PM
I work in a group home and we discovered some of our holiday decorations are broken.  We don't have the budget to buy anything new.
I decided to make a couple of things and wanted to do a bleach bottle Santa and a brandy snifter Santa.  I found a pattern for the bleach bottle Santa and have one here at home to compare it to but I can't find a pattern for the brandy snifter Santa and the one my Mom made me is in storage somewhere.

Details of swap:
Fill a Pringles can full of holiday goodies for your partner!!! The number of crafted items is endless, just be sure to fill 'er up all the way  Participants can craft several things for each other, including ornaments, gift tags, stockings, holiday-themed jewelry, pet gifts, candy etc. etc. etc. Non-holiday items are fine if OK with your partner. Please remember to decorate the outside of the can as well! Cans themselves can be taped up and mailed out as a single piece but I highly discourage it as they aren't very sturdy and the lids are prone to pop off even when securely taped. Participants can also go with the "mini can" option in which 3 of the small cans count as 1 regular sized can (this is great for themes).

PLEASE BUY YOUR CAN(S) AS SOON AS YOU ARE APPROVED FOR THIS SWAP. Eligible cans include the original cardboard cans and the smaller mini version of the cardboard can. No plastic cans please.

Be sure to thoroughly clean it. In the past rounds, participants have wiped out the emptied can with a damp paper towel then let the can sit for a few days uncovered with a spoonful of baking soda in it.

Participants can include store-bought items, but please be sure that you personally craft at least 75% of the goodies in your can!

Want to send more than one? I'm allowing participants to have up to 2 partners if they wish. This is only available to Craftster members who have already completed at least 2 swaps with POSITIVE feedback.

Everyone must post in the thread once a week.

As always, Delivery Confirmation #'s are required!

Details of swap:



...Each person will have a secret partner in which they will stalk around craftster and other possible areas like blogs, wists, websites--wherever you can find info about your person. Revealing yourself to your partner is not allowed until after you have sent your items and only if they have guessed who you are. We will not reveal our partners to the other swappers until Christmas eve. In other words, PMing them to ask what they want is not allowed. You have to play detective.

You will send out crafted items totaling 5 points with at least one item a large or medium.  You will also include two stocking stuffers which can be crafted or purchased.
Of course you are free to send extras, but remember that you don't know who is sending to YOU, so there's no telling if you'll be getting extras or not.    Each participant will also be giving 5 themes in their questionnaire - your partner may craft to your themes or by post stalking you - it'll be a surprise!!


You are in a need of a wists and at least 75 posts on craftster. Make sure you have posts where people can find things about you and not posts that say I did this for etsy!   You will have to have at least 75 things on your wist.  A collection of shoes, dresses or furniture does not count.  Please put things on your wist so the person crafting for you will be able to determine your likes.  They can't contact you to ask questions.

We do request everyone that signs up to post in the thread at the minimum of once per week just to keep up.  It may be chatty, but it'll be FUN!!!!  It's a great way to get to know the other craftster members!!
