This is a repeat of a public swap I hosted last year. I am also hosting a public version this year, but thought a nice, safe group version might also be a good idea...

the simple guidelines:

For this easy, fun times, international matchbox swap we will each have just one partner. You will make your partner one winter, holiday, or Christmas themed matchbox (the small 32-count size). I make my matchboxes out of cardstock, but most swappers decorate real, empty matchboxes.

You also need to fill your matchbox with similarly themed goodies. I like filling my boxes with stickers, ribbon, brads, buttons, beads, and other little embellishments. Anything goes.

You aren't required to send extras for this swap, but remember to include your name, your swap-bot username, and your email address in your package.

touchy stuff:

I celebrate Christmas, but I know many others do not. Everyone is welcome to join this swap without regard to religious or holiday affiliation. However, I want to send out red and green stuff... and maybe some Christmas tree things... and probably some winter themed stuff, too. Just know that by signing up for this swap, you are agreeing that you don't mind receiving Christmas-y or other winter holiday things. This is a wide-open swap where all interpretations are welcome.

rating requirements:

Well, since everyone in the "matchboxes are the best" group have over a 4.9 ratings, that will be the rating requirement for this swap. All group members are wecome!

let's swap:

I hope to have a lot of participants. Let's all have fun and start dreaming about the holidays! I always angel my matchbox swaps, so please let me know after the send deadline if you have not received a matchbox.... although I'm not expecting any flakers (barring emergency situations) since this is an awesome group.
