You will make a matchbox using either white or ivory PLUS chocolate or black. Your choice. AND one other colour. Yep, we've done a similar swap before.
The catch? This time the person to whom you are sending the box gets to choose the POP of colour! When the swap partners are assigned, check who is sending to you by clicking on 'Rate Your Partner' then click on their username. Send them a PM with your choice of colour. Don't be too specific. You can specify light or dark of a colour but that's it. You can request a very specific colour if you want but as long as your partner gets the light/dark part right, that's enough to fulfill the requirements. You may add a small amount one accent colour as long as it's not on your partner's dislikes list. You have one week to send the PM or your partner chooses for you.
*Please use at least 3 layers and/or embellishments on the outside of the MB.
*Fill with items that coordinate with the box's theme or colours or items you think your partner will enjoy. Make it full but packing tightly isnt necessary. If you include a higher value item like jewelry, a rubber/polymer stamp, charms or fancy embellishments, OR a handmade item like a mini book or handmade flower, no need to fill completely.
*Stickers, AS ACCENTS, should be limited to high quality scrapbooking or card making stickers, not the kind meant for kids or teacherâ€™s reward stickers.
*If you use rubber stamping, please stamp cleanly; missed areas or double lines are not acceptable. Please do not use computer generated images or sentiments because I have been very disappointed by images printed in very poor quality lately. (If you print them well using very good quality paper and ink, your partner wonâ€™t know and canâ€™t rate you badly for it can they?? Wink wink!)
*Please make a beautiful MB you are proud of and would be thrilled to receive. Make sure your work is clean and precise. No glue should show and straight cuts need to be straight.
*Please don't be discouraged by my rules. I am only referring to general tidy practices, not tiny flaws. I've received a card so saturated with glue I could knock on it and get hollow noises! I've received a note book with edges that looked like they had been cut with a saw! I just expect tidy work!
*Please have a 4.97+ rating to join and no 1's EVER or 3's in the last 6 months. I will accept explanations of course, PM me ahead of the sign up deadline. Newbies are welcome with WELL FILLED out profiles (About Me, Likes, Dislikes at least) and MUST PM me at least 3 days before the end of the swap to show good intentions. A newbie is someone with less than 5 completed and rated type 2 or 3 swaps. If you see a flaker has joined, don't worry, I will weed them out but there shouldn't be any on a group like this! If you are really worried, give me a heads up! Iâ€™ve been flaked on so many times, I've stopped keeping track, so I get it!
