Details of swap: Jar of Whimsies Round 7

This is a swap where you will fill a container (glass, plastic, wood, cardboard/paper, metal, fabric, whatever your heart desires) with little trinkets, bits, and baubles you think your partner will love. The more creative the better! Requirements are as follows:

1. A decorated container filled with whimsies
   Small- approx. 2 cups (1 pint); OR
   Large- approx. 5 cups (2 pints)
2. A minimum of 3 crafted whimsies (more is just fine)
Note: Extras (i.e. things outside the container) are optional- discuss with your partner.

Please check out past Jar of Whimsies galleries for ideas:

Round 2: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=253257.0
Original round: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=238903.0

This swap will also include an OPTIONAL contest for the best container as voted on by swap participants. The contest portion is completely voluntary- I will ask at the end of the swap who would like to participate and will put together a separate thread with the contest entries. ALL whimsie swap participants (whether entering the contest of not) will get to vote for their favorite container. The winner will receive this whimsie lamp.

Last round a super-fantabulous prize was donated by the lovely Tero. Check out the contest entries here and the awesome whimsie prize here.
