Details of swap:

Find a matchbox that holds between 30-40 wooden matches and fill it as full as you possibly can with tiny supplies. You'll be amazed by how much you can fit in it! You can put anything you want in it, as long as it is craft related.  Supplies such as beads, paper, ephemera, postage stamps, brads, buttons, fibers, embellishments, stamped images, stamps, ribbons, stickers, foam shapes, fake flowers.  Handmade goodies such as, earrings, magnets, a necklace, charms, pins.  If it fits and can be used in a craft, or is a craft it's fair game. You can have 1 or 2 partners -- you will decorate  a matchbox for each partner, and you will receive a matchbox from each partner. One suggestion would be to stalk your partner and decorate the matchbox to their likes and dislikes but if you have an idea in your head already, decorate away. Just as long as you decorate and cram as much into the box as you can all will be good.  This swap is meant to be a quick, easy, and cheap swap so no extras, if it doesnt fit in the box do not send it.  You can also make your own "matchbox" as long as it is the appropriate size. Here's one template you could use: http://blog.swap-bot.com/rachels-matchbox-template/

About shipping:
Delivery confirmation is required in the US for this swap, and swappers sending non-US packages must keep mailing receipts and be willing to send a scan or picture of that receipt if there is a problem. If you are unsure if your package is big enough to qualify for delivery confirmation, please upgrade to a bigger envelope or box.

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

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap: Matchbox Swap round 4
Craftster username:
Email address:
Your real name:
Mailing address including the country:
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside your own country?
Confirm that are at least 16 years old (YES/NO)
Would you like one or two partners?
Do you have access to a camera and promise to post pictures in a timely manner?
NOTE: it is recommended that you take pictures of the boxes you send, just in case they don't make it to their destination or if your partner has sudden camera issues.
Is there anything else your partner/organizer needs to know?

Can we make our own matchbox? I have so many die cut machines and cute templates to make matchboxes that I have a plethora of ideas.

What if I can fit a potato SEED inside the matchbox.  That would be acceptable, yes, TLK?
