A mix between the Pringles can swap and the matchbox swap! Decorate an M&M Minis tube (which will require eating them, yum!), and fill with crafting goodies!! I'd love to host this as my first swap. Tell me what you think! Wink

I like it, and the plastic tube will hold up well to mail abuse!

That's a cute idea! I haven't seen those m&m tubes around lately though, I used to love getting those. Are they still selling them at grocery stores?

They would definitely hold up in shipping! 

I'm pretty sure they're still around, I got one in my Christmas stocking this year?! Ha ha ha. Just did a quick Google search and KMart has them... I'll look up other stores. Smiley

I think its a great idea- easy on small budgets and a challenge to think of crafts small enough to fill the tube!

UPDATE!

Yes, they're still in about all stores around! At least where I live. You can look up your area here: http://www.mms.com/us/about/wheretobuy/

Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?
