Swap name: MATCHBOX SWAP ROUND 6
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: plucky1_08
Sign-up date range: April 22-April 30 (or until swap fills up)
Date to send item by: June 4

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): 24
Restricted to people who all live in the same country? NO
Additional Age requirement?  NO

I am going to keep this swap small 24 participants or less but if there is a lot of interest I will open another round as soon as this one is complete.  

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: YES


Details of swap: Find a matchbox that holds between 30-40 wooden matches (roughly 2 inches by 1 inches) 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. You can list themes that appeal to you but your partner does not have to do any of them. Although 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 matchbox do not send it.  

Also dont forget:
Please put "Matchbox" in all private messages to help me keep track of them.
When you ship, please PM me and your partner with the DC# (if applicable.)
When you receive, please PM me and your partner to let us know it's arrived.
Feedback will be given once you have sent, received and posted pictures in the gallery.
I'm not going to require that everyone "check in" at a certain time but communication is key to a good swap.  A post on the board weekly or so will let the organizer and your partner know that you are still around and we haven't lost anyone.  

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:

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap
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 or, if not, that you have moderator approval(YES/NO)
Do you have a camera and promise to post pics of your package when you receive?

List a few themes you like, around which your partner might choose to decorate:

Is there anything else your partner/organizer needs to know?

Would you like 1 or 2 partners?


IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO ORGANIZER VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND NOT TO REPLY WITH IT HERE.


Also, remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find other rules about participating in a swap.

The good thing about matchbox swaps is they are usually inexpensive swaps.  Since the item is so small and light weight that shipping is cheaper and a lot of times it's a stash busting swap so not a lot of expense at the store.   Smiley

I think I would like to join this one.  I have been in the mood to make small things, and there are not any OTT swaps I am seeing right now, and I have always loved stalking the galleries before.  Will think on it and maybe sign up in the next couple of days.
