This is SUCH a good idea! I really really wish I could participate, but I've already got so many swaps going out in mid-August.

This sounds like a really fun swap, and I definitely would like to do it- my only question is, where does the crafting come in? like making things with stuff you find?

The receiver can craft with stuff she/he got from their partner.

I was sort of thinking of something along the lines of crafting something that you keep the stuff you send *in*.

Like you could bind a little scrapbook for it or decorate a box to keep it in. Just so you aren't sending an envelope full of random papers, etc. Lol.

*If* I do it, I was going to work it into crafts. A decoupaged notebook, a wallet, a purse, etc. You can do lots with package tape and mod podge.

Yeah, that sounds really awesome. That's using your noggin, Jazzybelle. Just take the idea and run with it.
