This would be kind of nice swap. Although my first thought was: Hey! An excuse to eat some Pringles.
I am just wondering how much work this actually is? If 75% needs to be crafted, could somebody tell me
how many crafting points would that mean?

Last year we didn't have a points system, it was just craft as much as you can fit in (and in some cases around Embarrassed) the can.

I wish there was a way to regulate this though.  I've never had a problem but have spoke with other people who received cans with maybe 25% crafted but everything else bought.  I love being able to send candy and a few trinkets here and there but I feel bad for those that just get store bought stuff.  They could have done that themselves.
