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 and/or crafts. 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, unless you and your partner agree to personal swap at the same time. "Decorations and wrapping" are allowed. Wink 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.
Also, remember to send a message to your partner and your organizer when you send AND when you receive. In a large swap, it is difficult for us to keep track of receiving just by posts in the threads. Thanks!

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

To anyone who's just looking into this thread and thinking "That looks like fun", I just want to say that the last matchbox round was the most fun swap I've been in. The stuff was great, the boxes were endlessly inventive, and the gallery just went on for weeks and weeks and weeks. Sheer joy. DO NOT PASS THIS UP!

Sending in my PM immediately.
