Details of swap:

You know, like the pop tab belts and the bottle cap necklaces.  In this swap we are turning all the stuff we would normally throw away into crafty goodness!!  Whether its making a cute tote bag out of those old clothes you dont want anymore, or melting your granny's old records into bowls, pretty much anything goes in this swap as long you are repurposing something that would normally be thrown away or overlooked. 

Some money can be spent buying the extra odd and end supplies you need (glue, jewelry findings, whatever) but the idea is to spend as little as possible and turn the old junk that you already have, into something cool. $20 is the limit on everything. 

You will be sending one large (or main) item and few smaller things in your package, but the details should be discussed with your partner.  Also if you would like to send your partner information about recycling, feel free.
