Details of swap:
Here's the deal. You will be given five theme ideas from your partner. You will choose one of those ideas, and re-con an Altoid tin according to the theme. (If you are unable to find an actual Altoid tin, you may use a substitute, provided you keep the size to anything smaller than 4" x 4" (10 cm x 10 cm), and not thicker than 1" (3 cm).) They don't have to be square or rectangular, I've seen some cool round tins. After the tin is decorated, you will fill the tin with tiny objects that also relate to the theme.

For example, if your partner chose "red" as a theme, you would decorate the box to reflect "red". It could just be different shades of red, or perhaps pictures of red items (roses, cherries, or firetrucks, etc.). Then, you decorate the interior of the box and fill it with red things...maybe a pair of red earrings, a red purse charm, some red hots...whatever "red" means to you. The catch is that you can only send the decorated tin and whatever fits into it. Nothing else!

There is a short signup period but with 4 weeks of crafting time, if you are feeling frisky and you want to do two tins, you may request two partners. It's up to you.


There are some rules, though.
1.  You MUST post in this thread so we can communicate with you easily.  A simple "I'm in" will suffice.

2.  You MUST get a DC number (US only), or it will be noted in your feedback.  If you are shipping internationally please keep your receipt and take note of the customs number.

3.  You MUST send on time and pm me and your partner with the DC number, OR communicate with me that you will be late. Do not make me have to ask you whether or not you have shipped. Poor communication will also be noted in your feedback.

4.  All PMs MUST have Altoid tin theme swap in the subject line (I get a lot of PMs  and it gets confusing)

5.  Last but not least...NO FLAKING! Make sure you have the time to commit and do a good job for your partner. We are all busy with vacations, kids out of school, etc over the summer so if the timing doesn't work for you, please sit this one out. Wait for the next round.

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:

Craftster username
Email address

1.
2.
3.
4.
5.

Are there any little items you would NOT want? (i.e. if you don't have pierced ears, you will probably not want post earrings!)

Anything else your partner should know?

Hmm..I think I'd like to do this, but I still need feedback from my first swap before I can sign up.  My partner from the scavenger hunt swap should receive this week and then I'll have feedback...so maybe I'll be signing up before time is up.
