Details of swap:

Swap Description: In this swap, we will craft a teeny companion that can travel with their new friend in a small mint tin or similar container.

Swap Guidelines: This swap should be worth 3 points. You must craft a teeny traveler (approx. 2 pts) and make or decorate a traveling container (approx. 1 pt). Travelers can be made from any material within reason - clay, yarn, fabric, leather, wool, etc. You may also make accessories (i.e. camera, backpack, clothing), biography cards, maps, or other small items for the traveler you craft to fulfil part of the point requirements, but please make sure everything can fit in the single container.

By points:
Large = 3 points
Medium = 2 points
Small = 1 point

By time:
Large = 3 or more hours
Medium = 2 or more hours
Small = 2 or less hours

Containers should be similar in dimension to a normal Altoid tin, and should be durable enough to carry in a pocket, purse, or backpack. Please use the following size ranges if you decide to use something different:
3.5" - 4 long
2.5" - 4 wide
0.75" - 1 deep

No one likes to be flaked on, so if you aren't sure you can complete the requirements of this swap, please don't sign up. If you know you will be late or unable to complete the swap please let me know ASAP. Communication is a must. Everyone is required to post on the thread at least once before the swap begins and once a week during the swap. Tracking is required within the U.S. Send the tracking number to both your partner and organizer when you send. Keep your mailing receipt if you are sending internationally. PM both your partner and  organizer when you send and receive.

Take pictures of everything you make before sending in case items are lost or in case your partner cant take pictures. Please post pictures of what you receive. Your partner worked hard on it, and we would all love to see it! If you cannot post pictures, please let your partner know right away.

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:
