I'm sending a small post-pak box too, next size up is mahoosive after that. I've not had chance to weigh yet

I know! Isn't it! I might have to start collecting different sized boxes for international shipping, (especially if there is an opportunity to do swaps such as this again Cheesy) I'd have liked to have sent a slightly bigger box but like you found the medium too huge...  When I filled in my questionaire I assumed that our small post-paks were the same size as the US small flat rate, but now I know better Smiley.

Wow, I didn't realise people would be sending so much. I put together a much smaller package. I hope my swap partner is okay with that. Here I thought I was going all out but it looks like mine will be a smaller sampling.

I bought all my candy already. Lots of candy. Its so easy to buy though, lol. My box might be a bit bigger then the small US flat rate, but the medium is way bigger. They need an in between size. Anyway Canada doesn't have anything like that. I just bought a 10.5"x15" bubble pack from the dollar store and folded it in half. Of course its smaller then 10.5 once I filled it.

the small flat rate box in the US is just too small, only measuring 22x13,5x4cm  I wouldnt be able to fit anything in there and you can only put up to 4lbs (just under 2kgs) in it. The medium size is 28x22x14cm  and that is about right, I still had problems fitting everything in that one so I had to leave few things out that I wanted to originally mail.
But I got an approval ( a frowny one though) from the boss so I should ship tomorrow. The total weight is 9,5lbs about 4kg. I am happy with it, hope my partner is too  Grin

Mine is larger than a shoe box size but it fits everything I bought plus the crafted item perfectly so it works for me Smiley

The small post pak boxes are much deeper than the US flat rate then 10.5 x 27 x 18.5cm

I think in some ways it's good to have the constraint, otherwise it's so easy to just keep buying :-)

Boy, am I glad that I'm not the only one going slightly overboard with this... I have about 90 percent of the candy I wanted to send, but I'm already past the weight limit for fast delivery, so I will be sending 2 packages Grin There is still crafting to be done after all...

But the teaser pics so far are impressive!  Wink You guys really go all out in this swap! Awesome Grin
