Swap name: Altoid tin and ephemera swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: rackycoo
Sign-up date range: March 17-March 26 at 12:00 EST
Date to send item by: April 9

- Has posted at least 15 times: YES/NO
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES/NO
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES/NO
- Does not have any negative feedback: YES/NO
- Participant has agreed that he/she is at least 13 years old: YES/NO

Details of swap: If you're anything like me, you have a little stash of Altoid tins just aching to be decorated (OK, I admit it, my stash is HUGE), plus a few drawers or envelopes full of fun ephemera that would be perfect for the job! You would also appreciate some new ephemera in exchange for some of what you already have.

For this swap, you will decorate an Altoid tin inside and out, and then stuff it full of fun ephemera. Think tickets, pretty stamps, parts of foreign text...anything you can get in there. If your partner indicates an interest, you may also include fun brads and/or metal accessories. You may only send what fits inside the tin, so this will be a fun, easy swap. Please send nice things that you would be happy to receive!

The tins will make a padded envelope thick enough for a dc number, so if you're sending within the States, dc's will be required. Some people have asked about using tins that are similar in size to Altoid tins. That is perfectly fine, as long as the size is close. I'm not having anyone specify a theme for the decoration of the tin, but if you wish, feel free to talk to your partner and see if they have a theme in mind. Otherwise, just make it pretty with what you have.  Smiley

One more thing: please post in this thread if you are going to participate!!

Sent mine too. Also just told my hubbie that the 'two weeks' crafting time starts during our holidays he cried "Nooooo, I want you during that time tooo!!!"  Roll Eyes He thinks being in two swaps, wanting to level my MMO character up to it's highest and having at least 5 other crafting projects on the go is insane - but he does love me.

Im so lucky  Grin

Yay! I'm in!

This is exciting! I haven't swapped in months. I got married last fall. For a while, all my crafting was wedding-related...then Christmas-related....And then I was just out of the craftster habit. But today I signed up for 2 fun swaps!  Grin

ooooooh man! I will be out of town for this swap (leaving on the 26th, back the second week in April) so there is no way I would be able to do this... Guess I will have to cross my fingers for a round 2?

You should probably go ahead and eat the mints, or you'll have nowhere to pack the ephemera.  Cheesy

I like chocolate and I like mint, but oddly, I hate the combination. Tongue

Yay I signed up and it's my first swap! Cheesy
