The intial 8 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 his/her gift list, or get a head start making his/her holiday decor.
This swap is open to all winter holidays not just Christmas. 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 8 POINTS
1 BIG= 3 POINTS
1 MEDIUM= 2 POINTS
1 SMALL= 1POINT
Partners may swap more if they are both in agreement and able to send on or before the deadline of November 24th.

If you have any questions about the swap please do not hesitate to PM me (imafundork). There is a strict deadline because it's for Christmas/Winter Holidays. No one wants to get their presents next year. You must have completed as least 1 swap prior to this swap. I reserve the right to refuse any swapper due to sending late, poor communication, etc. on previous swaps.
