Soooooo.... I've been wanting to do a swap like this but keep missing the deadlines to participate so I'm creating one to host.

Here's the skinny, obtain an empty Altoid tin and fancy it up First Aid/Emergency Style. Decorate it as you please. Perhaps using styles you like mixed with something your partner might like. I include this statement so that you don't have to wait for partners to be assigned before starting your project.

Fill your decorated tin with um First-aid stuff. Band-aids, alka-seltzers, tums, "pirin" tablets(for anyone who remembers Hank Azzaria in "The Bird Cage"gauze, wee scissors, fingernail clipper, first-aid tape, remedies, breath mints, words of wisdom/encouragement/enlightenment. yada yada yada.

You get the idea? Fill it with things that one might need for a small emergency.

This should be a fun swap to create. Make your partner smile and get all excited about showing off their traveling medicine box.

Emergencies come in many shapes- including fingernails and buttons! And chocolate!

i am sending my package today... way to leave it until the last minute! I had tons of fun putting this swap together. My altoid tin roughly focuses around craft emergencies... I hope my partner doesn't mind.
