If you have or are in a group could you please send a group message to see if anyone else would like to join?

Checking your partners profile is great, but not required. . Be sure to include a tiny note or business card that has the swap name and your username on it so they know where it came from. Include only things you would like to receive, no trash! Now seal up the other end of the tube. Decorate & address the outside. I have found it easier to decorate after it is full; it holds its shape better.

This is a "US Only" Swap, so shipping costs should be affordable. This is the roll inside toilet paper. yes the PO accepts it or you can put the completed, filled roll in a small paded envie if you PO insists they can't. You might call ahead and ask to save time & frustration.

You need to have a 4.9 or above rating, at least 3 rated postal swaps and no unexplained ones or threes in the past 6 months. If you are new, please have a full profile & PM me before joining. Any questions you can PM me.

Happy Swapping, nlgrudis

Got my first one done, ready to send! I totally misjudged the size of a toilet paper roll...had to "pillow" the ends out and remove some packaging so I didn't smash anything. Excited for you to get it!

I sent out one of my TP roll today and the mail lady told me next time I should make it bigger because that size usually gets lost in the mail because it's too small :( hope my partner gets it...
