I'm thinking about this one.   Smiley


Mariak, I think its a medium sized flat rate priority box from the USPS.    They come in two sizes:
Medium Box 1
Outside:
11 1/4" x 8 3/4" x 6"

Inside:
11" x 8 1/2" x 5 1/2"

Medium Box 2
Outside:
14" x 12" x 3 1/2"

Inside:
13 5/8" x 11 7/8" x 3 3/8"


I'm guessing that if you are sending from outside the US that as long as a your box was the same size it would be fine.   Huh  


But which box can we use?   Can we pick either medium flat rate box or did you have a specific one in mind, SevsOnlyGirl?

Do know that the medium flat rate box shipped internationally I think runs around $60.

As soon as I have a swap slot open, I'm joining.  I'm just waiting for feedback on a completed swap and I'm in!!!
I love these random swaps, especially if my partner has lots of pinterest inspiration. Smiley

This is the box we would be using:  https://store.usps.com/store/browse/uspsProductDetailMultiSkuDropDown.jsp?productId=P_O_FRB2&categoryId=subcatMSS_FlatRate

I believe the cost to ship is $12.35

Yes, if you are shipping internationally, the box would be 61.75 if shipped with the same box.  If you use a regular box and ship airmail...maybe it would be cheaper.  It's up to the international people if they can figure out a cheaper way to ship a box the same size. Smiley
