Valentine's day is my favorite holiday and my birthday is in February, so I love hosting February matchbox swaps!

the simple guidelines:

For this easy, fun times, international matchbox swap we will each have just one partner. You will make your partner one love, Valentine's Day, or February themed matchbox - the small 32-count size (approximately 2 x 1.5 x .5 inches).

I use this template to make my matchboxes out of cardstock, but most swappers decorate real, empty matchboxes.

You also need to fill your matchbox with similarly themed goodies. I like filling my boxes with stickers, ribbon, brads, buttons, beads, and other little embellishments. Anything goes, but make sure you send something you would love to receive.

You aren't required to send any extras for this swap, but remember to include your name, your swap-bot username, and your email address in your package.

rating requirements:

This swap is international. Everyone must have over a 4.9 rating to participate with very, very few (like zero) no sends. New users are welcome, but I must ban anyone who looks fishy. (A filled out profile is required.) It is a harsh world out there and I want to keep my matchbox swappers safe!

let's swap:

This swap has a quick turnaround, but you can start working on your matchbox now! Remember that this swap is sender's choice and you can get a love, Valentine's Day, or February themed matchbox in this swap. If you don't like any of those things, this probably isn't the swap for you. Let's have fun!

FYI: If your profile is totally blank, you will be removed from the swap.

Ok! Partners have been assigned!! I did have to remove a few people with blank profiles, but otherwise, this seems like an awesome group of swappers!! Have fun!

p.s. I DO angel my swaps. Two weeks after the send deadline, if you have NOT received and you HAVE rated your partner honestly with a 1, contact me and I will send out an angel package. Great!
