- Has been a member for at least one month: YES
- Has posted at least 15 times: YES
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES
- Does not have any negative feedback: YES

Details of swap:

Been given craft supplies by well-intentioned friends, only to find it’s all supplies for crafts you DO NOT know how to do?  Have a surplus of supplies you are willing to bid adieu and ship to a new loving home?  Have I got a deal for you  Grin

This swap is all about filling a small flat rate box or small flat rate envelope with supplies to your partner(s) and making their day!  You will have a choice of ONE or TWO partners for this swap.

Crafted items are NOT required…but who wouldn’t like a little goodie tucked in with their yarn/fabric/beads/embroidery floss/etc.?  LOL!

Here are links to the small box and envelope we will be using.  Either item costs 4.95+delivery confirmation cost to ship at the post office (which is about another .75 or .80), or 4.80 online with Click n Ship…AND…Click n Ship cost INCLUDES the cost for delivery confirmation!  Delivery confirmation IS REQUIRED for this swap, and because it’s SO easy, I highly recommend using the Click n Ship method.  You can order these boxes or envelopes for FREE from these links, but they DO take 7-10 days to arrive as they are shipped by parcel post AKA slow boat shipping so be sure to order early!!

Small Flat Rate Box – Dimensions: 5-3/8” x 8-5/8” x 1-5/8”
http://tinyurl.com/y9994p7

Small Flat Rate Envelope – Dimensions: 12.5" x 9.5"
http://tinyurl.com/yg6swuj

To sign up to do Click n Ship
https://sss-web.usps.com/cns/landing.do

The flat rate envelope would be best suited for fabric, paper and ephemera, embroidery floss, patterns and booklets, or other flatter-type items.  Beads, stamps, yarn, scissors, and other non-flat-type stuff would be best shipped in the small box.  They both would hold about the same amount, one is really just better for paper goods if that is your partner’s preference.

Please communicate in the thread or by PM once a week.  If this swap gets VERY large, I will coordinate a weekly check-in PM with my co-organizer to make sure everyone is still out there and plans on sending.

And, the most important rule…..HAVE FUN!!

IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO ORGANIZER VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND NOT TO REPLY WITH IT HERE.

Yay! I am totally signing up for this. I wanted to do the other fill-a-flat-rate-box swap but I didn't think I would have enough stuff to send out. Definitely have enough for this one! Excited!!

I'm probably going to sign up for this swap. Though I gotta think on it for a couple days. I signed up for another swap that sends out on the same day. With school/work/kid I want to make sure that I don't bite off more than I can chew.

Though more than likely I will not be able to resist the siren call of a cheap swap. Wink
