My sister did this for me once when I was like 10 for my birthday and I thought it would be a fun swap idea.

So what you do is get an empty water/gatorade bottle (try to find one with a little larger mouth), peel off wrapping (You may have to submerge the bottle in hot water to get it all off) and wash it out. Once it is dry this is where the fun starts!

You're going to fill the bottle with lots of goodies for your partner to enjoy.
There are a few things you MUST have in the bottle:
2 sheets of stickers
A small letter to your partner (must be ATLEAST one page)
four .44 cent stamps
1 pack of gum
1 unused gelpen
1 small profile surprise
4-5 small candies (keep in mind where you're sending if sending chocolate)

So now your bottle may start looking a little full, this is where you can feel free to fill up your bottle with whatever else comes to mind. Maybe more stickers (flakes are fine), or glitter (in a container!), or confettie (once again, in a package, not loose). If your partner is into ATC's maybe some supplies. I'd say you bottle should cost you no less than $4.00 BEFORE shipping.

This swap is senders choice so you can't be too picky when you receive your bottle however it must have the listed items above. ABSOLUTELY NO JUNK! No wrappers, crumpled paper or used items. If you send any of that you run the risk of getting a low rating.

Once your bottle is filled you may decorate the outside of it however keep in mind that the bottle is getting mailed AS IS. You WILL NOT being sending in a box or bubble envie. Print out or write your partner's addy on a piece of paper and tape it to the bottle. Be sure to write "TO" and "FROM" to prevent confusion. That's the fun of this swap! Others get to enjoy what you're sending! Be sure to tape the lid to prevent it from spilling or a curious mailman. :P

Rating Requirements
You must have a rating of 4.9 or higher and no recent 1's or unexplained 3's within the last 30 days. Newbies are allowed but MUST have a welled filled out profile.
This swap is USA ONLY to keep the cost of shipping down, I will check profiles!
I reserve the right to ban anyone from the swap if I feel you won't be fulfilling your side of the swap.

Hope everyone has fun and if you have any questions feel free to ask!

How in the world do we mail the bottle as is? I guess I"m not understanding--do I put an address label on the outside of it and address it? I didn't know that we could mail things like that. It sounds a lot of fun though.

Yeah, the postal service takes ANYTHING. I've actually sent a ball before.. Lets just say EVERYONE injoyed that one and surprisingly it wasn't popped!

Just print out the person's addy and tape it onto the bottle. Just make sure to write a 'to' and 'From' to prevent confusion.
I will edit the rules to make it clearer.
