DETAILS OF SWAP:
It has been ages since we've had a matchbox swap!
What's better than sending/receiving one matchbox for the holidays?  
Two matchboxes!!! Cheesy

Matchbox #1 (i.e. the altered matchbox) could be...
- a holiday ornament (free standing or with a loop for hanging)?
- holiday themed artwork?
- a mini shrine?
- anything your heart desires...as long as it involves altering a matchbox in some form!


Matchbox #2 (i.e. the mystery matchbox) could contain...
- a bunch of whimisies?
- an inflatable rubber duckie? :Cheesy
- cookies? candy? cash?? (kidding, just kidding...unless you really want to do that)
- anything your heart desires...as long as it fits in the matchbox!


For this swap, swappers will be sending just 2 matchboxes to their partners...no extras, please.
The mystery matchbox doesn't have to be decorated...it can be wrapped up as a gift for your partner to unwrap...or left unadorned.
You may use commercially produced standard sized matchboxes or opt to make your own matchboxes.

I cannot wait to alter some matchboxes! 
Hmmm...might have to work on a few practice ones before signups end  Grin

There are so many awesome examples of altered matchboxes on pinterest.
