Swap name: Once You Pop Swap Round 5 - HOLIDAY EDITION!
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: Ma Rut
Sign-up date range: October 12-20, 2007 signups end at midnight Eastern Time!
Date to send item by: November 21, 2007 (the day before Thanksgiving) NOW EXTENDED TO MONDAY, NOVEMBER 26

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): NOPE! Thanks milwjamie! Smiley

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

All ages allowed? Or 18+? All ages BUT please get parents' permission BEFORE signing up!

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:
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 Wink 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 too in moderation. 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 3 partners if they wish. This is only available to Craftster members who have already completed at least 2 swaps with POSITIVE feedback.

As always, Delivery Confirmation #'s are required!

"What holiday celebration(s) do you participate in (Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, etc.)?"
Yessss. I'm officially in love with that question.
But now I'm curious if there're any other Hanukkah celibraters involved in swaps ><

I really want to sign up for this one, but at the moment I've basically filled my swap slots. I've always wanted to participate in one of these swaps (or you know, at least since I knew what swaps were!!)
