Time for some Spring Cleaning.... The perfect time to clean those craft closets. I'm happy to organize another Fill A Box Swap to help motivate you.

Swap name: Fill-a-Box Supply Swap 7 (aka: Flat Rate Box Swap)
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: Oops Creations
Co-Organizer: RondaS
Sign-up date range: Sign-ups CLOSED
Date to send item by: 4/8

Restricted to people who all live in the same country? YES.  This is a Fill a "US Postal Service Flat Rate Box" Swap so unfortunately it is limited to individuals in the U.S.  Sorry.

Age Restrictions: Over 13, as stipulated in new swapping rules

As a reminder each participant must meet these conditions:
- Has been a member for at least one month:
- Has posted at least 15 times:
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time:
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps:
- Does not have any negative feedback:
- Participant has agreed that he/she is at least 13 years old:

Details of swap:

Fill-a-Box Supply Swap 7  **** Post office just issued a new size box that is more expensive-- ONLY use the $8.95 rectangle or square box NOT the $12.95 box************

Its that time of the year again, clean out those overflowing baskets, boxes and craft closets.  Start the new season with fresh supplies and fresh ideas.

You'll fill a FLAT-RATE US Postal Service box with as much as you can jam in and send it to your partner (Don't forget the Delivery Confirmation).

Gently Used supplies are fine, if not encouraged-- take this opportunity to do a little craft purging, the result is a clean(er) craft closet and some fresh ideas/supplies for crafting. Because of the special type of box (only $8.95 plus delivery confirmation) this is limited to US participants only. Sorry

In previous rounds I have allowed people to send a SECOND BOX.  Please indicate if you would like to send a second box.  You will be paired up with another person and you will also receive a second box.  YOU ARE NOT REQUIRED to send a Second Box to participate in this swap.


If you want to participate, information to send to Oops Creations (the organizer):

Welcome back old friends and hello new ones. Here's the Participants thus far.   50 People.  Thanks to RondaS for being my co-organizer

Okay folks here's the list-- special thanks to RondaS for sending out PMs--- lets get swapping.  I hope everyone likes their partners-- many of you had made specific shout outs for certain items so I did my best to match you with someone that could provide that, likewise if you were sending fabric i tried to pair you with a person that sews.  Now of course nothing is perfect so don't feel like you need to meet everyone of your partners requests-- just because they only want something for an obscure craft doesn't mean you need to provide it-- just do your best and HAVE FUN.

I'm now switching over into the gallery for send/receive tracking.  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=235290.0

**Note from Organizer**

Here are the boxes we use-- be sure that they are marked "FLAT RATE" and can close properly to get the $8.95 (plus DC) rate.  P.S  Even though the TWO sizes of boxes (rectangle vs square) are roughly equal in area, most crafters prefer the RECTANGLE box as it fits paper/fabric and other flat items better


You can also order these boxes FREE (in cases of 25) from the USPS website-- under "Shipping Supplies"

I could probably handle this one...  All I have to do is stuff things in a box right??   How hard is that.  Grin

Plus I just picked up 32 zippers at my local thrift store for $5.  I know I do not need all 32 of those babies.  Anyone need sport zippers in dark colors?    I also have a bunch of sealed copies of Interview magazine from @ 8 years ago.  They have great ad pics in them for those of y'all that do collage.

We are in the process of switching over to cloth diapers.  Would love some advice, hint, tips.   Will swap for diapers!

I love these! I still have a Be Dazzler that my partner didn't want last time, hope my partner wants it! If not, I know I can still fill the box.... Smiley
