Swap name: Altoid Tin Theme Swap Round 6
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: wootwoot
Sign-up date range: 6/13/07-6/18/07
Date to send item by: 7/10/07

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): 24 or 25, whatever gives us an equal number of pairs.

Restricted to people who all live in the same country? NO
If so, which country?

All ages allowed? Or 18+?  All ages; under 16 need parent's permission and must have a way to keep in contact and to get to the post office for shipping.

Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES
- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: YES
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: YES

Swap Organizer will check each participant to make sure they meet these conditions:
- Has been a member for at least one month: YES
- Has posted at least 15 times: YES
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES
- Does not have any negative feedback: YES

Details of swap:
 
You will be given five theme ideas from your partner. You will choose one of those ideas, and re-con an Altoid tin according to the theme. (If you are unable to find an actual Altoid tin, you may use a substitute, provided you keep the size to anything smaller than 4" x 4" (10 cm x 10 cm), and not thicker than 1" (3 cm).) The tins can be square, rectangular, or circular. After the tin is decorated, you will fill the tin with tiny objects that also relate to the theme.

For example, if your partner chose "red" as a theme, you would decorate the box to reflect "red". It could just be different shades of red, or perhaps pictures of red items (roses, cherries, or firetrucks, etc.). Then, you decorate the interior of the box and fill it with red things...maybe a pair of red earrings, a red purse charm, some red hots...whatever "red" means to you. The catch is that you can only send the decorated tin and whatever fits into it. Nothing else! This will be a quick, fun swap and shipping should be fairly cheap, as well.

For examples you can see the galleries from the last 5 rounds:

Round 5: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=169868.0
Round 4: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=161935.0
Round 3: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=129115.0
Round 2:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=80409.0
Round 1: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=106249.0

If you would like, you can have two partners, but the shipping deadline will still apply.  If you want two partners you can make two theme lists or use the same one (you might get two of the same theme, though).

Rules:

1.  Post at least once in this thread so we can communicate with you easily.
2.  US participants must get a DC number.  International shippers keep your receipts as proof of shipping.  Failure to do this will be noted in your feedback and if your package does not arrive you will have to resend.  If you have proof of shipping and your package doesn't arrive I will get a swap angel and you will still get positive feedback.
3.  Communicate!  When you have shipped pm the DC number to me (you can send it to your partner, too--it's fun to track the progress of a package headed your way).  If you are going to be late, let me know by the shipping deadline.  If I do not hear from you you will receive NEGATIVE feedback, preventing you from signing up for more swaps until you have cleared it up.   Sending early, late, getting DCNs, and having good or bad communication will all be noted in your feedback.

Okay... because I liked the last round and it was a pretty easy swap.

ps - I will be out of town and unable to get to a computer from the night of June 19 - the afternoon of June 21. Just in case you're trying to contact me or something.
