Swap name: Altoids / Mini Tin Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: Shotgun_Bettie

Signup: April 13 - April 27, 2005

Date to send item by: May 21, 2005

Limited to a certain number of people? 25

Non-U.S. participants allowed? Yes

All ages allowed? Or 18+: All Ages

Organizer is aware of current list of "suspended traders"
list and will not allow those members to participate:  Yes

Details of swap: This is my first time organizing a swap (although I've been in many so far!) so I'll be sticking to an one item one partner swap for this one.  You'll be designing/reconstructing a mini tin, such as an Altoids tin, cigarette tin, card box tin, ect. for your partner, and they will be making something as creative and wonderful for you Smiley
Project should be made using a small tin, no more than 6"x6" (no cookie tins please!), and have a lid or some form of covering. 
I've seen so many fantastic decorated Altoids and Mint tin boxes on Craftster, things like purses, survival kits, hygiene product holders, condom boxes, personal shrines, make up cases... If you need any ideas just punch in 'Altoid tin' in the Craftster search engine or do a google on Altoid Tin projects.
This should be a fun, easy and cheap to mail Swap and I'm looking forward to seeing all the wild and creative stuff you crafty boys and girls come up with Smiley

PM me with delivery confirmation number

I'm very excited and trying hard to wait until I get a partner Wink. I hardly do crafts that don't require a needle and thread so this is very new and exciting.

I was going to partner up after sign up's as there's a always trying to match up by country and such. But I promise I'll get it done right away after sign ups are over, or if there's enough interest and we actually get 25 people ready to swap Smiley

I'm thinking I might try a hand at making the polymer clay covered boxes, those look so sleek and fun Smiley

Since there's a lot of new swappers here please be sure to give the swaping guidlines a once over, they're a fast read and good to know (even as a refresher) before the swap starts next week. Smiley
