+ This swap is a celebration of Earth Day, so you will make one crafty item from mostly recycled, reused, renewed, reclaimed materials. (I say mostly because it’s okay if things like thread, glue, etc. are new.)
+ Crafty items that promote Earth Day or the 3 Rs (reduce, reuse, recycle!) or nature are a plus; for instance you could make a tote bag out of pants you don’t wear anymore, cut up your old green t-shirt and sew on a tree appliqué.
+ You must ship by April 15
so that we will have our crafts in time to show them off on Earth Day (April 22). This gives you nearly a month of craft time. Get creative and have fun!
+ If you live in the USA and are sending to someone else in the USA, you should obtain a DC#, and let me & your partner know what it is when you send. If you don't live in the USA and/or are sending overseas, and there's no affordable form of tracking, keep your receipt as proof in case it gets lost.
+ I will be checking in on you around the 7th of April.
+ When you sign up & are approved, please post a message in this thread so that I know you'll be getting the updates etc.
If you want to participate, please send me a pm with the following questionnaire and also Earth Day Swap in the subject line
