Details of swap:Fill a Pringles can full of holiday goodies for your partner!!!
The number of crafted items is endless, just be sure to fill 'er up all the way Participants can craft several things for each other, including ornaments, gift tags, stockings, holiday-themed jewelry, pet gifts, candy etc. etc. etc. Non-holiday items are fine if OK with your partner. Please remember to decorate the outside of the can as well! Cans themselves can be taped up and mailed out as a single piece but I highly discourage it as they aren't very sturdy and the lids are prone to pop off even when securely taped. Participants can also go with the "mini can" option in which 3 of the small cans count as 1 regular sized can (this is great for themes).
PLEASE BUY YOUR CAN(S) AS SOON AS YOU ARE APPROVED FOR THIS SWAP. Eligible cans include the original cardboard cans and the smaller mini version of the cardboard can. No plastic cans please.
Be sure to thoroughly clean it. In the past rounds, participants have wiped out the emptied can with a damp paper towel then let the can sit for a few days uncovered with a spoonful of baking soda in it.
Participants can include store-bought items, but please be sure that you personally craft at least 75% of the goodies in your can!
Want to send more than one? I'm allowing participants to have up to 2 partners if they wish. This is only available to Craftster members who have already completed at least 2 swaps with POSITIVE feedback.
Everyone must post in the thread once a week.
As always, Delivery Confirmation #'s are required!

Attention international swappers. The recommended send date for international packages from the US is Dec 11. However I have had packages I've sent take over three weeks without the additional holiday mail. If you join this swap please keep in mind that you might not get your package before Christmas. I encourage anyone shipping internationally to send their package early.
