Back by popular demand is this fun senders choice swap.
Once you sign up, you can get to work on stuffing your toilet paper roll as full as you can get it with fun stationery, planner & crafty kinds of goodies. Think about all the neat stuff you can try and fit into one! The possibilities are practically endless.. Some examples are: brads, buttons, bows, ribbon, lace, trim, rolled paper, stickers, clips, flowers, twine, washi samples, ephemera die cuts, , stamps, candies, mini gel pens, mini mechanical pencils, erasers, page flags, beads, charms and so much more that I am not even thinking of, but YOU could! Just make sure you STUFF THAT SUCKER!!
Now once it is filled to the brim, write on the outside of your roll the swap name, and your swap-bot name then wrap it securely so nothing falls out. Saran wrap holds it pretty good and makes it water resistant. Then roll the whole shebang in a few layers of pretty wrapping paper or card stock, cool news print or tissue paper, twine, string or yarn, ANYTHING to make the outside stand out and make your partner ooooh and ahhhh over it.. Secure the address on it and mail it! That's IT! Fun, right?!?
The last 2 swaps I made like this, some of the participants (like myself) upgraded to sending a paper towel roll, as shown in the picture. I can fit a good 8 page stack of 8.5X11 paper in those and still stuff a bunch of goodies in 'em!!
Please don't forget to rate promptly and fairly. Remember this is a senders choice swap so if you get a toilet paper roll that is filled with fun, then please rate a 5. If you OOhhed and AAaahhhhed, or got an upgrade to a larger roll, a heart would be most appreciated, but as always, hearts are at the receivers discretion.
All swappers are welcome with at least 4 completed and rated swaps, no recent/unexplained 1's or 3's, a rating of 4.97 or higher and a well filled out profile. This is a USA only swap, due to the slightly increased cost of postage. If you wish to model an international version of this swap, please feel free. Just invite me, lol, I might want to join!
I also reserve the right to ban any user, for any reason and without explanation from this swap if I feel the need to do so or you have arrived on my questionable swapper list.

Ugh, I just joined swap bot. I am trying to get some quick swaps in. I so want to be able to join this one.

Fun! How was the postage for mailing these? Will it be more costly because of the shape? I am joining anyway but was curious about how the post office handles such packages.

@CurlyTea get some swaps under your belt for the next round! we would be glad to have you!
@Rosina176 IT wasnt too bad, I think it was like 3 bucks and change and they would even take a coconut if it had a stamp, lol I have seen a single flip flop all by its lonesome self mailed! They will take just about ANYTHING, lol.

This was such a fun swap, but I went to the post office today to mail mine out only for the mail clerk to be annoyed with me because it was too small. Next time I'll use a paper towel roll! =)
