Get ready to put something super special together for your swap partner!

SENDERS CHOICE VERSION!


SPRING TIME EDITION!!

~Swap-Bot is such a lovely place! So many kind, thoughtful and upbeat swappers here! Though it's often hard to know what other swappers are going through in their own lives. Sometimes we struggle with our emotions, our health, family, friends, work, etc. So I decided to create this swap to put a smile on someone else's face! Lets encourage each other to continue to push forward, stay positive, and really let ourselves shine! So what do you think, ready to make someones day?!~

For this swap we'll be creating a single whimsy jar for our 1 partner. This will be SENDERS CHOICE! Meaning all items you include can be of your own choosing. HOWEVER PLEASE BE MINDFUL OF YOUR PARTNERS ALLERGIES IF THEY HAVE ANY! (for example items smelling of smoke can be harmful to those with allergies or asthma, no chocolate if they mention they're allergic, etc)

Do your best when putting together these whimsy jars! Please follow the instructions.


Remember this IS sender's choice, however that being the case PLEASE NO JUNK!

Do not just open up a junk drawer and grab a handful, be thoughtful with what you send your partner! Remember, we want to make their day ^_^ Put together something that you would enjoy receiving if it were your gift, something that you're super proud to share with someone else! We want to warm our partners heart with our lovely package! Not leave them feeling a bit deflated by receiving someone's throw aways.

This time, we'll be using a 4oz baby food jar, or a jar of equal size, instead of a full size ball jar. You're more than welcome to create a larger jar if you wish, however the requirements are just a 4oz jar. I am allowing a good amount of time for sign ups, and two weeks after sign ups to send. Since this is senders choice you can start putting goodies together now! (I made this one 4oz because I noticed it's quite hard to find a 6oz baby food jar anymore! lol 4 seems to be more standard and easy to find)

We will also decorate the lid to our whimsy jar after we've filled it! Cover it in fabric with lace, or decorative gems, or even decoden it with whip/cabochons, whatever your heart desires!
Remember to include both your Swap-Bot name and the name of this swap, on a little card or memo!

So that's it!

4oz baby food jar (or equivalent)

Filled with tons of teeny tiny SPRING TIME goodies for your partner (see below for suggestions)

Decorate the lid

Don't forget to include a note with your swap handle and the name of the swap!

Pack nicely and send!

Of course glass jars can be heavy, even baby food jars, so plastic containers would be suitable as well.

Items should be LOOSE inside of the jar. If you purchase something wrapped, such as a blind bag toy or a bag of tiny erasers, buttons, etc, you should open the bag and dump the loose items into the jar. The idea is to put the tiniest things on the bottom, then layer items by size as you fill to the top, with the largest items up top, to fill as much space of the jar as possible! I've included images for examples, and will post more images below in the comment section!

Items that you may include:

Tiny figures or toys! Little chicks, little flowers, bunnies, anything that makes you think spring!

Ribbon or washi tape samples! (let's keep them at least 2 feet long for samples!)

Sticker flakes, or cut out stickers that are springy!

You could create phone charms or keyrings out of polymer clay or resin and include some of those!

You could include inchies or little tiny papercrafts like those origami stars or tiny paper cranes!

Candies or tiny snacks in springy colors! (Just check in case of allergies! Nuts etc!)

Cabochons, buttons, or decorative gems!

Flowers, or animals that make you think of spring! Like birdies or bunnies, tulips or daffodils, or other cute flowers!

These are just suggestions. There's tons of things you could add! Use your imagination ^_^ Of course handmade goodies are welcome if you'd like, though please do your best! Remember, DON'T JUST CLEAR OUT YOUR JUNK DRAWER!

I will be very diligent while checking profiles for this swap, since there is a lot involved. No participants with ratings lower than 4.99, must have 50 completed type 2/3 swaps with positive ratings under your belts, and no recent 1s or 3s. (Recent = within 1 year) I reserve the right to ban as needed, and I WILL do so.

Also, this swap IS USA only however due to the size of the jar, and depending if you use a glass or plastic jar this will be a bit heavy, so please be mindful of shipping costs, as they will cost much more to send than some of our smaller or lighter swaps!

If I've missed anything, or if you have any questions or comments, feel free to let me know!

This is US only though any of my International swappers feel free to create an Int version if you'd like!

Hello all! Partners will be assigned for this swap in one week ^_^ I'm very excited!

Again, please be sure to double check that you do meet the requirements that I have listed in this swap description above. I'll copy and paste them here for those who might have just skimmed the above information:

"I will be very diligent while checking profiles for this swap, since there is a lot involved. No participants with ratings lower than 4.99, must have 50 completed type 2/3 swaps with positive ratings under your belts, and no recent 1s or 3s. (Recent = within 1 year) I reserve the right to ban as needed, and I WILL do so."

As I've mentioned in the description I will be removing participants who do not meet these requirements before I do assign partners. Please understand that I am not looking to single anyone out by doing so, in order to be fair to all swappers I have created these requirements, and do take them seriously based on the complexity and cost of these swaps.

I am hoping to do these whimsy swaps every month or so, so if you do not meet the requirements this time around, please feel free to join one of the future whimsy jar swaps once you do meet them :) Thank you very much!

I'm so excited for this swap!! I'll be assigning partners tonight ^_^ Again, please be sure you have met the requirements to join, I will be removing requests from people with less than 50 combined 3s and 2s, or ratings below 4.99. If you do not meet the requirements this time, please feel free to join one of the whimsy swaps in the future when you do! :) Thank you all, and let's get springy!
