Description:

I love making and/or decorating matchboxes. However, Canada Post rates have gone up quite a bit and they芒鈧劉re becoming very expensive to mail out.

Therefore, I decided to open a swap for Canadians only. I figured that shipping local would probably be less expensive and would save the hassle of a customs declaration. My apologies to USA and International swappers, it芒鈧劉s nothing personal, but I芒鈧劉m really on a tight budget lately.

If this swap goes well, it could be the first of a series of different themed matchboxes, so Canadians, keep your eyes open.

For this swap, you will either decorate a 32 ct matchbox or create one from Rachel芒鈧劉s template. Then, fill the matchbox with all kinds of goodies (stickers, buttons, pins, brads, charms, ribbons, figurines, or whatever else you can think of!). It芒鈧劉s senders choice theme. You will have one partner. Once completed, please wrap it up safely and send it to your partner.


Ratings:

脗路 Please rate your partner as soon as package is received;

脗路 5s should be given out based on whether the package meets the swap requirements, NOT whether you like it or not;

脗路 Hearts could be given out to those who do an excellent job, or who go above and beyond (ex: profile surprise).

Requirements:

脗路 You must have a rating of 4.8+ with no recent no sends;

脗路 No unexplained 1's or 3's or you will be banned;

脗路 Newbies allowed with 2 rated mailed swaps and a WELL filled out profile.


I will check profiles before assigning partners and I will ban anyone who seems fishy. I might sound harsh but I芒鈧劉m trying to avoid unpleasant experience. If any questions or comments, please don芒鈧劉t hesitate to PM me (communication is the key).

This swap is meant to be fun, so PLEASE no flakers. Should there be any, I will Angel if necessary.

Hey Jennie,I couldn't agree with you more.I have host a canadian only before.We sure could use more.What part of canada are you from?

Toupti 05/24/2009 #

I'm glad to see people agree with me. I hope we will be able to attract many people in this swap because I intend to do more in the near future. =D Let's hope we will all have a fun swap.

Glad to see this swap - I've stopped making anything besides ATC's because of the postage costs. Should be better sending just in Canada, maybe!! As long as it fits in that skinny little slot!

Toupti 05/27/2009 #

Yes you are wright user 69378. I actually use a regular enveloppe and Rachel matchbox template because the matchbox is thin. I wrap it in a little piece a bubble wrap and it does usually fits. We'll try and see! =D

I would love to join but i'm just too busy right now. Next time :) Thanks for the invite.

Thanks for inviting me to this swap - it's nice to see Canadian swaps. I've never made a decorated matchbox before.

The matchboxes I have handy are 30 ct Redbird matchboxes. Would that be close enough to the right size (if not, I can make one from the template)?

Toupti 05/31/2009 #

Hi @nsstwo

I have no problems with a 30ct matchbox as long as it's well filled. Please feel free to join. I do sometimes use 40ct matchboxes since these are the only ones I can find in my area. Otherwise, I use the templates.

Do wathever suits you best. =D
