Let's celebrate Earth Day by using and swapping what we have instead of buying new! Let's pledge to make April a craft destash month! Together, we can have a really big impact on the environment and on our own wallets.
Many of us have ginormous stashes of craft supplies with many fun and creative projects waiting to be born, but we also probably have some extra items that haven't quite found their way into our projects and maybe never will.
For this swap, you'll send your one partner a 6 x 9 inch (or larger) envelope stuffed full of your excess craft supplies. You can send paper scraps, fabric, ribbon, yarn, stickers, embellishments, etc... Anything you already have on hand and that you think your partner would enjoy. You are sending supplies that you have not had a use for, but like always, only send clean, quality items that you would like to receive.
Notes on envelope size: 6 x 9 inches is the smallest size envelope you can send, but any larger size is great, too. Recycled shipping materials are welcome to be used. "Stuffed full" can be a subjective term, so let's all try to include at least five different types of items in our packages. This is a wide open swap, but remember: the intent is to help us reduce our personal stashes while, in turn, receiving some "new-to-us" supplies in the mail! Be sweet to your partner! :)
New users are totally welcome in this swap! In fact we are inviting new members to Swap-bot specifically for this special earth-friendly swap. However, all current users must have over a 4.8 rating with no recent 1 ratings. I will remove anyone who looks suspicious. This swap is eco-friendly and people-friendly!!
For the entire month of the April, let's pledge not to buy any new craft materials, tools or supplies for the April Stash Bust!
