According to Wikipedia (yeah, yeah, I know): Fukubukuro (福袋 lucky bag, mystery bag) is a Japanese New Year's Day custom where merchants make grab bags filled with unknown random contents and sell them for a substantial discount. Yes, this isn't the start of any new year that I'm aware of, but we are nearing a new season and the mid-way point of the year. So...

Start the summer and the 2nd half of the year with a lucky grab bag!


This 4 point swap basically is make a bag (out of whatever you like) or find one that you think suits your partner and fill it with crafts supplies, candies/snacks and crafted items. Yes, all 3.




Details of swap:
- This swap requires a minimum of 2 small crafted items (or 1 medium) plus the bag (that can be made or bought) then go ahead and fill it with craft supplies and candies/snacks. 
- If you go by point system, it would be a minimum of 4 point swap: 2 points crafted items that aren't a bag, a 1 point bag (that can be crafted or bought) and 1 point of supplies and candies.
- Since this a small, 4 points swap, you can choose to swap with 2 partners.


Swap guidelines/ 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

By Size

Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

This sounds fun!  Are there size parameters/expectations for the bag?

Welcome to the swap, curiousfae and geekgirl1000100!

I was too! This was it Smiley

This sounds fun!  Are there size parameters/expectations for the bag?
Nope, not other than something that your partner might like and is worth at least 1 point. Like, if they need tote bags, you might send one. If they want a clutch, lunch bag, a furoshiki cloth, a craft storage bag... then consider sending one of those. The other things don't need to fill it out as long as the package meets the points requirement. The main thing is try and make your partner happy. Does that help?

hmmmmm.....this might be do-able
sounds like a fun & fairly low-pressure swap

Let me ponder.

On a side note, RaraAvis, yesterday I used the sweet tote you
made me in STS (elephant print) and my co-worker really liked it when she saw it
(and she's not one who usually ever gives compliments, LOL)
