"Victorian Vanity" and a profile Surprise swap.
Welcome! This is sort of a "side two" to my other swap called "Nature's Whimseys".
This swap, like the other, is about the many curious oddities one may find in someone's special "treasure chest" where they keep their favorite trinkets, whimseys and knick knacks.
This swap is similar to a Whimsey Jar swap, except you will instead be using an old tin or cigar box. You're encouraged to decorate the box or tin either in a Vintage theme or customized to the recipients profile. If you use a tin, it should be about the size of standard cigar box.
A standard Cigar box is about: 8" x 8-1/2" x 1-1/2" high
You may use a larger box or a box of similar size in a different shape. (such as decreased length and increased depth.) Micheals has excellent blank wood and paper mache boxes priced from $2.99 - $5.99 if you'd like to go that route. Or you could use what you have sitting around or swing by the thrift shop.
Your goal is to fill the box with Victorian and Vintage themed whimseys. There is no price limit or minimum. But please don't send dangerous or dirty items. Examples of things you can include are:
Be creative! The box must be FILLED.
You're also to add one profile surprise. It is SENDER's CHOICE! It can be store bought or handmade. Doesn't matter so long as it is based off of the recipient's profile.
I will be giving plenty of time for sign ups to allow time to save up some change for postage and find whimsey's to send.
I will be emailing a week before sign up ends to remind everyone. And I will PM again a week before the send deadline as well. Any questionable swappers will be removed prior to assigning partners.
Due to postage, this swap is USA-only. However, if there is enough interest in it. I will host it again as an International Swap. :)
