Stuff a flat rate box full of crafted goodies for your partners. Whether you need help with your holiday gifts or decorations or you just want a box full of surprises. You must craft at least 7 points of goodies.
The intial 7 points should be items crafted mainly from supplies that you currently have in your stash. To fill the rest of the box you may use store bought or other crafted items. Make sure you stuff the box to the fullest capacity. You can craft items to help your partner stuff stockings, fill their gift list or, get a head start making their holiday decor. If you do not celebrate Christmas, not to worry, all comers are welcome! The main spirit of this swap is to have fun crafting for others! I'll do my best to partner swappers according to their interests.
Swappers will be crafting items worth a total of 7 POINTS
1 BIG= 3 POINTS
1 MEDIUM= 2 POINTS

Partners may swap more if they are both in agreement and able to send on or before the deadline of December 1st.
