Swap name: Stuff a Small Flat Rate Box for Winter Holidays!
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: Spookygrrrly
Sign-up date range: 11/5 - 11/12
Date to send item by: Dec 5th

Limited to a certain number of people?: 24
Restricted to people who all live in the same country? YES
If so, which country? USA
Age requirement? 16+ (If under 18 you must have parent permission.)
First time swappers welcome! Sorry, but those with negative feedback will not be admitted.

Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES
- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: YES
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: YES

Swap Organizer will check each participant to make sure they meet these conditions:

- Has posted at least 15 times: YES
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES
- Does not have any negative feedback: YES
- Participant has agreed that he/she is at least 16 years old: YES
- If within the US, understands that Delivery Confirmation number is required for this swap: YES
- If outside the US, understands that a mailing receipt copy is required for this swap: N/A

Do any of these things apply to you?:

- You're swapping budget is a bit tight and you don't want to spend too much in shipping.
- You're looking for an easy first swap to get your feet wet.
- Heck your just looking for a swap that lets in first time swappers!
- You love surprises.
- You love the challenge of seeing how much stuff you can get away with sticking into those priority mail boxes.
- You are in college/a parent/working a lot/just fracking busy!

Then this swap would be for you!

The challenge of this swap is to fill one of the small priority mail flat rate boxes from the US post office to the brim with Winter Holiday goodies. How much can you send for $5.35? Whatever fits in the box! At least one item needs to be crafted, and at least 50% of the box needs to be Winter Holiday related. (Winter Holidays include: Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Yule, Winter Solstice, Christmas, etc) I want this to be an easy, relaxed, and fun swap.

If you are not sure what a small flat rate box check out the USPS site here: USPS Flat Rate Box Info

Sorry but this swap is restricted to swappers than live in the US.

This will be considered a 2 point swap for the crafted item/s.

Reminder of point sizes:
 Large-3 points: 3 hours or more; $30 or more in supply value, shawl, shirt, project tote, apron, set of pillowcases, set of tea towels, large stuffie

 Medium-2 points: 2 hours but no more than 3 hours to complete, $15-$30 in supply value, necklace, belt, bracelet, scarf, deluxe pincushion

 Small-1 point: at least 1 hour but no more than 2 hours to complete, $5-$15 in supply value, pouch, stickers, earrings, bookmark

Also, I just want to stress that communication is important! So please keep in touch and let us know how you are doing in the main thread! Smiley

This sounds like fun!  I'm full up and have a few swaps that need to wrap up first, so I may or may not make it in on time.
