This is the second round in a new series of swaps I will be hosting. The series will have one swap each two weeks, approximately.

What Is This Swap?

Take a 9x12 flat rate envelope (padded or unpadded is up to you, but make sure nothing will be damaged). If you can't get the flat rate envelopes, a regular 9x12 is fine, but you will save money by doing flat rate.

Fill it up with stuff. This is purely sender's choice, but do not send junk. Send things that others can potentially use. There is no dollar minimum or maximum. Things can be handmade or storebought. Some examples include: stickers, washi, postcards, notecards, bath & body products, snacks, books, paper goods, bookmarks, makeup, coupons, recipes, pens, anything. There must be at least 10 different things, but more is better. Different, as in not 10 sheets of stickers! If you participated in the previous round, you may have stuff left over from the envelope you received last time. Now is a good time to pass that stuff on as well!

Add a note to the envelope with your swap-bot ID and swap name so your partner will know who it's from and which swap it is for.

Seal it and await partners being assigned.

When partners are assigned, address your envelope and send it.

When you receive your envelope, rate your partner. As long as your envelope has at least 10 things and a note with their ID and swap name, they get a 5.

Take what you want out of the envelope. If there are things you do not want, leave them in the envelope for the next round, or take it all. In the next round, you will send what is left over to your partner (adding to the envelope if needed to ensure there are still a minimum of 10 different items for them to choose from). If you kept everything from the previous envelope, you'll simply start a new batch of 10+ different things. If you kept nothing, you'll simply send the same batch of items to someone else. (Obviously we'll have to use a new envelope though.)

This is a great way to destash and get things that you could use.
