Decorate a small matchbox (50 ct. here in Australia) including the draw in a "Things with Wings" theme and then fill it to the brim with goodies in keeping with this theme.

some things with wings; butterflies, ladybugs, birds, dragonflies, angels, fairies...

The list of things you can fill the matchbox with includes but is not limited to the following ~ stickers, embellishments, paper punches, brads, ribbon, buttons etc. Please use a variety of items.

I suggest if you are unsure or would like to see examples then search Flickr :-)

It is surprising how much actually fits into a matchbox!

I use purchased matchboxes (you can buy them in a 10 pack in supermarkets) but you can also a template ~ if you need one click here

To ensure the matchbox arrives in great condition please fill it & either wrapped in bubble wrap or in a padded bag/other suitable packaging.

Postage is not expensive ~ I use a purchased matchbox and once decorated & filled I wrap it in bubble wrap & send it in an envelope covered in cellotape/contact so the box can't tear the paper. This then only costs $1 to post anywhere in Australia or $1.35 to post to New Zealand!

p.s. I am very keen on hosting more matchbox swaps so please lists any ideas/preferences in the forum :-)

I am bringing the sign up date forward but leaving the send by date the same thus allowing more send time.

This is because as I'm going to be holidaying in Bali for a week in early June & wish to send before I go :-)
