I love decorated matchboxes, but haven't seen any swaps for them here in quite some time. It's time to correct that situation!

For this swap, you'll take one 32ct matchbox and decorate it for your partner. Fill it with small goodies that fit inside the box. They can be stickers, buttons, brads, beads, or anything else you have in your stash. Try to mix it up.

You can decorate the box any way that you'd like, but it is nice to try and include something your partner enjoys. I'm going to set this up with 2 weeks between the sign up date and the swap date so you can let your creative juices get flowing. Do Not slap a sticker on a box and send it.

If you can't find matchboxes in your area, Rachel was kind enough to make a template http://blog.swap-bot.com/rachels-matchbox-template/ so you can put your own together.

I supposed we have to get to the down and dirty of it. Rating 4.95 minimum with no recent ones. No recent 3's without messaging me first.

NOTE: If you receive a matchbox and it meets the requirements, rate a 5. Not liking a creation doesn't mean it didn't meet the criteria. Who knows? Maybe we'll do a "not my style" matchbox swap soon. :)

This swap is international. Mail time may be longer than expected. I sent a swap a month ago that still hasn't arrived to the recipient.

If you have questions, please message me or comment and I'll be glad to help. I'm sure there's probably something I've neglected to mention :)

Just a reminder that tomorrow is the last day to put your matchboxes in the mail. I hope everyone enjoyed decorating and filling them.
