DETAILS OF SWAP

Description:
Have you ever wondered how much you can fit in a standard sized envelope?

In this swap, you have two weeks to fill an envelope with random craft-related and/or crafted goodies from your personal craft stash and mail it to your partner(s).


The original idea for this swap was to keep the envelope within the limits for the minimum postage within the US (44 cents).
As I am now opening this up to international swappers, these restrictions can no longer apply, however, it would be nice to keep to the spirit of the original swap and keep to the lowest postage rate.
Guidelines for each countries postal service is different, so PLEASE try to communicate with partners with regard to envelope size/weight to be sent to keep postage low and ensure that reasonably matched packages are sent Smiley
I will attempt to match partners within regions if possible to help with this.

Since this swap requires little or no crafting time, you have the option of signing up for 1, 2, or 3 partners!


The Fine Print:
1. Good communication is very important!  It is your responsibility to inform your partner(s) and the organizers when you send/receive your envelopes.
2. Although this is a random swap, the general rule of thumb is to send out things which you would love to receive.  
3. No DCNs will be required for this swap (because the envelopes do not qualify for DCNs), but you must agree to resend to your partner(s) if the envelope(s) go missing (for whatever reasons).
4. Everyone who signs up for the swap must post in this thread, the more often the better, so we can see what you are up to and know you are still around! Feel free to PM me if you foresee any problems so we can help you. This should not be an issue at all, since this will be a very fast, fun swap.

Also when contacting the organiser (mini_mum), please include one of following as message title:
Stuffed Envelope Swap Sign up
Stuffed Envelope Swap Question
Stuffed Envelope Swap Sent
Stuffed Envelope Swap Received

Please send completed questionnaires to mini_mum by PM, and DO NOT post here.
___________________ ___________________ __

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:

Name of swap: Stuffed Envelope Swap (international)
Craftster username:
Email address:
Your real name and mailing address:

Confirm that you are at least 16 years old (yes/no)

How many partners would you like (1, 2, or 3)?

Do you have any common home allergies (such as pets, cigarettes, etc.)?

Do you have any allergens in your home (such as pets, cigarettes, etc.)?

Do you have access to a camera or scanner (for pictures to post in the swap gallery)?

Do you agree to resend to your partner if your sent envelope fails to reach its destination?

Write down a couple of things that are of interest to you that are also readily available, please remember that these items are just ideas. (e.g. fibre, paper crafts, beads, etc.):

Is there anything you really do not want to receive (eg religious iconography, clowns etc)?

Indicate if you would like supplies, crafted items or both:

Are you willing to craft, or do you just want to send supplies?

Anything else you want the organiser/your partner to know?



Please note: I will attempt to match crafters up with crafted requests but this may not be possible in all cases, and crafted items sent/received are senders choice, but negotiation encouraged Smiley

Please remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find out how to ship your item and other details about participating in a swap.

YES!! we have swappers Smiley

Yes - although this is negotiable with partners.

Want to keep to the cheap postage rate like the 44 cent swaps so this might vary depending on where you are - I'm in UK and lowest postage rate is up to 100g.

I did my questionnaire as well.  If I am accepted this will be my first swap!  A little excited, and already pulling little things out of my stash, and brainstorming on ideas for things to make.
