This swap is for a 32 ct matchbox decorated however you like along with a coordinating 8 page book (excluding covers) that fits inside the matchbox and matches the outer theme or colour scheme. The book can include quotes you like, a poem, images you've cut out or copied, a list of things you love, the sky is the limit but it is not to be left empty. It is pretty small so it won't take much to fill it. Please don't forget to make sure it fits in the box so make it a bit smaller than 1.5x2". You may bind it any way you wish, a staple is fine but do embellish it somehow.

Stickers, AS ACCENTS, should be limited to high quality scrapbooking or card making stickers, not the kind meant for kids or teacher’s reward stickers.

If you use rubber stamping, please stamp cleanly; missed areas or double lines are not acceptable. Please do not use computer generated images or sentiments because I have been very disappointed by images printed in very poor quality lately. (If you print them well using very good quality paper and ink, your partner won’t know and can’t rate you badly for it can they?? Wink wink) You may use the computer to print your book pages.

Please make a beautiful matchbox you are proud of and would be thrilled to receive. Make sure your work is clean and precise. No glue should show and straight cuts need to be straight.

Please don't be discouraged by my rules. I am only referring to general tidy practices, not tiny flaws. I've received a card so saturated with glue I could knock on it and get hollow noises! I've received a note book with edges that looked like they had been cut with a saw! I just expect tidy work!

Please check your partner’s profile for dislikes and avoid those. For instance, do not put bugs on mine because I hate bugs and that is on my profile.

Please fill the matchbox with items using the colours or theme of your matchbox. No need to pack it tight but fill nicely. if your book fills the entire box, no need to fill it. You can opt to send those items separately if you wish.

Please have a 4.95+ rating to join and no 1's EVER or 3's in the last 6 months. I will accept explanations of course, PM me. Newbies are welcome with WELL FILLED out profiles and MUST PM me at least 3 days before the end of the swap to show good intentions. A newbie is someone with less than 5 completed and rated type 2 or 3 swaps. If you see a flaker has joined, don't worry, I will weed them out. If you are really worried, give me a heads up! I’ve only been a member since March and been flaked on 7 times so I get it!
