Details, details, details...
 You will be given five theme ideas from your partner. You will choose one of those ideas, and re-con an Altoid tin according to the theme. (If you are unable to find an actual Altoid tin, you may use a substitute, provided you keep the size to anything smaller than 4" x 4" (10 cm x 10 cm), and not thicker than 1" (3 cm).) The tins can be square, rectangular, or circular. After the tin is decorated, you will fill the tin with tiny objects that also relate to the theme.

For example, if your partner chose "red" as a theme, you would decorate the box to reflect "red". It could just be different shades of red, or perhaps pictures of red items (roses, cherries, or firetrucks, etc.). Then, you decorate the interior of the box and fill it with red things...maybe a pair of red earrings, a red purse charm, some red hots...whatever "red" means to you. The catch is that you can only send the decorated tin and whatever fits into it.  Nothing else! This will be a quick, fun swap and shipping should be fairly cheap, as well.

PM's to me should be labeled in the subject line with
Altoid Tin Swap-Round 11-Approval or
Altoid Tin Swap-Round 11-Sent/Received/DC# or
Altoid Tin Swap-Round 11-Question
1.  Post at least once in this thread so we can communicate with you easily.
2.  US participants sending within the USA must get a DC number.  International shippers keep your receipts as proof of shipping.  Failure to do this will be noted in your feedback and if your package does not arrive you will have to resend.  If you have proof of shipping and your package doesn't arrive I will get a swap angel and you will still get positive feedback.
3.  Communicate!  When you have shipped pm the DC number to me and your partner.  If you are going to be late, let me know by the shipping deadline.  If I do not hear from you you will receive NEGATIVE feedback, preventing you from signing up for more swaps until you have cleared it up.   Sending early, late, getting DC#'s, and having good or bad communication will all be noted in your feedback.
