DETAILS OF SWAP
The idea is to decorate your Pringles can, then fill your can as full as you can with crafted goodies.
For this round we will have a loose theme of Summer!
Think travel, grilling, backyard activities, gardening, sticking your toes in the sand (or maybe just dreaming about it!) Smiley

ONCE YOU GET AN APPROVAL PM, PLEASE GO OUT AND GET YOUR CAN!
Eligible cans include the original full-size Pringles cardboard cans
-or-
(2) of the smaller medium versions of the cardboard Pringles can (when put together, they roughly equal the full size).
No plastic cans please. Be sure to thoroughly clean it.


Participants can include store-bought items, but please be sure that you personally craft at least 75% of the goodies in your can!
Also if you wish to send an extra can or a larger item with your can, please discuss this with your partner -- just please be sure to discuss it early enough that your partner can prepare for it.
We wouldn't want anyone to feel like they sent an inadequate package.

Outside of can MUST be fully decorated.
It's easy, fun and your partner may even put it on display! They make great storage vessels Smiley

You will be required to check in with your partner and post in the swap thread during the swap.
Any lack of communication or not following the rules will result in negative comments on your swap feedback
Let's just all do our best to make this a positive, fun swap experience! Grin

As always, Delivery Confirmation #'s or Tracking numbers are required!
You are required to PM me (Ma Rut) and your partner when you send, receive and post photos in the gallery.
This is imperative for receiving a positive, timely feedback.

BOOKMARK THIS PAGE!
You wouldn't want to miss any important updates, and you should be posting here with progress updates or questions.

Joined! This looks like fun!

Just wondering, when you ship, do most people simply wrap the can in paper with a shipping label or do you get a box?

I'm thinking about this!

I would definitely get a box.  I've received stuff-in-a-pringles-can before, shipped just wrapped in a polymailer, and the can was pretty beat up. I would hate for that to happen here!

Some people have mailed them as just the can, but that makes me super nervous!

A sturdy shoebox is usually a good fit for a shipping box Smiley

I'm in New Zealand, so its actually nearly winter time - rather than summer! But I could do with some summer through my mailbox on a cold winter day so I would be keen to join Wink

This is a US-only swap, I'm sorry! Embarrassed If we get enough international interest, I may open it up, but for now it's just us United States folks.
