Swap name: Stuff a Small Flat Rate Box for Halloween
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: Spookygrrrly
Sign-up date range: 9/19 - 9/30
Date to send item by: 10/21

Limited to a certain number of people?: 24
Restricted to people who all live in the same country? YES
If so, which country? USA
Age requirement? 16+ (If under 18 you must have parent permission.)
First time swappers welcome! Sorry, but those with negative feedback will not be admitted.

Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES
- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: YES
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: YES
- Is at least 18 years old: YES

Swap Organizer will check each participant to make sure they meet these conditions:
- 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
- Participant has agreed that he/she is at least 16 years old: YES
- If within the US, understands that Delivery Confirmation number is required for this swap: YES
- If outside the US, understands that a mailing receipt copy is required for this swap: N/A


Do any of these things apply to you?:

- You love Halloween.
- You're swapping budget is a bit tight and you don't want to spend too much in shipping.
- You're looking for an easy first swap to get your feet wet.
- Heck your just looking for a swap that lets in first time swappers!
- You love Halloween.
- You love surprises.
- You love the challenge of seeing how much stuff you can get away with sticking into those priority mail boxes.
- You are in college/a parent/working a lot/just fracking busy!
- Did I mention loving Halloween?

Then this swap would be for you!

The challenge of this swap is to fill one of the small priority mail flat rate boxes from the US post office to the brim with Halloween goodies. How much can you send for $4.95? Whatever fits in the box! At least one item needs to be crafted, and at least 50% of the box needs to be Halloween related. I want this to be an easy, relaxed, and fun swap.

Unfortunately I have to restrict this swap to swappers than live in the US since you have to be able to fill a usps priority flat rate box.

This will be considered a 2 point swap.


Reminder of point sizes:
 Large-3 points: 3 hours or more; $30 or more in supply value, shawl, shirt, project tote, apron, set of pillowcases, set of tea towels, large stuffie

 Medium-2 points: 2 hours but no more than 3 hours to complete, $15-$30 in supply value, necklace, belt, bracelet, scarf, deluxe pincushion

 Small-1 point: at least 1 hour but no more than 2 hours to complete, $5-$15 in supply value, pouch, stickers, earrings, bookmark

Hi!  I'm excited about this swap and was just checking to see the size of the box so I know what I'd be signing up for.  The USPS site doesn't seem to have any $4.95 boxes, only padded and legal size envelopes - the small flat rate box is $5.00.  Could you confirm which one of these we'd be filling  https://www.prioritymail.com/flatrates.asp?  I'm 99.99999% sure that I'm signing up (filling out my questionnaire already, actually), but wanted to be sure I know the expectations Smiley

Thanks!

The box we are using is the small flat rate priority box from usps.
Hmmm...I wonder if there was a recent price hike? I could have swore the box I sent last month was $4.95. I'll double check on the price to make sure we are all using the same box. Hope to see you sign up! Smiley

Welcome to everyone who has signed up so far. I'm really happy to see such quick responses. Smiley This is my first time organizing so their was just a little nervousness that no one would actually sign up. Luckily I didn't have to have swap anxiety for long!

While we wait for the swap to start...anyone want to share any of their Halloween crafting/decorating ideas? I always start decorating the house on the first day of fall. I can't wait to get started!

Oooh I start October 1st! As soon as the kids are off to school I begin the decorating! This year I'm doing starched cheesecloth ghosts hanging from porch, and homemade tombstones for the yard. Also Im making a wreath that martha stewart did a few years ago where you put rubber snakes in a wicker wreath and spray paint it black. My kids draw bats every year on poster board and we cut them out and hang them from the porch as well. Ofcourse I do the spider webs and ripped up cheesecloth everywhere too, and this year I'm adding blood stains to my cheesecloth! Oh and me and my kids make milk jug ghosts and put them over the pathway lights so they glow at night. Whew that was a lot, but it is my fave subject, plus I'm sure theres a ton I left out!
