Details of swap:
This is a semi-second round of the earth day/recycled swap held last year around this time: send outs will hopefully arrive in time for Earth Day, April 22 Smiley  Here's their gallery! https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=89324.0

You could make things OUT OF mostly recycled materials ("mostly" only because glue, paint, thread, etc don't [necessarily!] need to be recycled as well), you could make things FOR reusing (such as lunch bags, napkins, etc), you could make things for PROMOTING environmental goodness..... or any combination of the above!

Here's some ideas that got brought up in some of the other threads for inspiration! -->  grocery bags, lunch bags, napkins, tea towels, heat packs, water bottle cozies, recycled paper notecards, bags made from old clothing, wallets made from old magazines, things made from:  tin cans, bottle caps/can tabs, plastic bags, old greeting cards, recycled yarn, felted sweaters. . . . the list goes on!

We will send one large and two small items (in time not in size), or the equivalent of that... or feel free to discuss with your partner so you both send equally!
