As this group is International Package swaps, let’s take a little trip around the world!

You should send items relating to at least 5 countries. You can either pick all 5 from the list below, or you can pick 3 from the list, and add 2 of your own choosing. You will send to your partner at least one item for each country that you choose. The item you send should showcase or represent the country in some way.

It is senders choice for the items, not profile based, so you can make a start on this as soon as you like. Please don't send all the same types of items, try to send a variety, and at least one item for EACH of the 5 countries you pick. No more than two handmade items and please not all paper products in your baggies. Sticker sheets and washi tape don't count as paper.

I know postage can be expensive, but please remember that this is a PACKAGE swap.
