I can't wait Cheesy

I think I will just use real matchboxes because I am bad at glueing and stuff Cheesy But the template ones aren't bigger are they? I wouldn't want to send one that is smaller than  the ones I recive Tongue

Mostly it is just cutting. I use a glue stick on the inside of the flaps, put the first set of flaps in, then glue stick the next set of flaps.

Printing, cutting, and gluing all three matchboxes the largest size took me only half an hour.

then I had fun decorating. I also like printing them out and cutting them out, because I can do hand drawing and stamping without fighting them.

but yes, please, if you just want to buy them ready made, go right ahead!

Ok Cheesy I might try making my own Smiley I don't know how it will turn out but I will try Grin

Also, how many boxes do we need to send out? Was it 4? Smiley

Ooh, one more question... Are we allowed to send small stuff like say, earrings in the matchboxes or should it be only supplies?

Thanks!

before i fully sign up for this i have a couple questions:
  • Is it 4 to a group (you plus the 3 send out partners)?
  • Would this be something that is small enough to send in just a padded envelope through the mailbox?
  • Do all the match stick boxes have to contain the same exact things?

You will send out 3 matchboxes and you will receive 3 matchboxes.

A matchbox is 1.5 or 2 inches by 2 inches by 3/8 or 1/2 inch, 3.2cm-4.5 by 3.5-5.5cm by 1-1.2cm.

Yes, you could put it in a small padded envelope and it is sent through the mail.

No, you can customize each box to the receipient, send different things to each, or send each one the same thing.

Last round lots of partners stalked each other and customized it to their partner's interest, but it isn't necessary!

You do what you think would be the most fun. The "golden" rule is to put in the box stuff you'd like to receive.

Hope you join us!

im so excited - i couldn't believe how much stuff i could ram into a matchbox - the matchboxes i have fit 50 matches, closest to a 40 match holder i could find - I showed my dad what i planned to send - and he said are you sure you want to send that much - i don't think he gets the swap idea Tongue
