I love decorating matchboxes and was searching for some ideas on the net on some different things to fill them with when I found these, which I think look fabulous and are not difficult to make. This swap is International so everyone can join in.

You will make one 32ct matchbox album for your partner. You can use Rachels Template or use an empty matchbox. The theme is senders choice. Please put real effort into your album - you could use quotes, diecuts, inchies, decoupage, stamped images, embossing, textures, patterns, people, places, animals, bands, art works - it's only limited by your imagination. The outside of the matchbox must be decorated as well.

I am also hosting a similar black and white themed public swap but I know that many people prefer to participate in group swaps.

The accordian album that is attached to the inside of the matchbox must be a minimum of six decorated pages PLUS the back and front. The back page is stuck into the base of the matchbox (obviously) so doesnt require any embellishment. Please make sure that your matchbox can be closed easily.

Minimum of 4.9 for this swap - any threes or ones in the last three months please pm me with the details so that I can check before partners are assigned.

You will have two weeks from the signup deadline to send your swap. Please do not join this swap if you have no intention of following through with the swap. If you flake I will make sure that everyone knows.

Credit goes to anyone who has hosted a swap like this previously :)

Happy Swapping
