The basics:
I think it would be fun to receive something odd-shaped in the mail, so I've created this swap.
In a small tin, include $5 worth of goodies (before shipping) and send it off. The tin should be light enough so that you can mail it through naked (no extra packaging necessary, around 13 oz. or less). However, please use packaging tape to make sure that the tin will not open during transit.
There is no theme to this and is mainly sender's choice. Of course, please avoid your partner's dislikes.

Must have completed and rated for 5 type 3 swaps to participate.
Must log in one day prior to partner assignment (December 31st).
No recent 1's or 3's.

Ideas for tins:

If you are sending a plain tin, please decorate it. Using washi tape is a great way to decorate. (General rule: tins should be at least as wide/tall enough to accommodate a pen.)

Some ideas for goodies:
* drink mixes (tea, hot chocolate, etc.)
* a scarf
* pens, pencils, markers
* jewelry
* magnets
* washi tape rolls (no samples; only rolls)
* snacks (candies, cookies, etc.)
* stickers (no loose unwanted ones)
* anything that fits in the tin!

I will angel if necessary, but I will go through all profiles before assigning partners and block potential flakers.

In Short:
One tin sent through the post as is, stuffed with at least $5 of goodies for your partner. New or unused items only.

Postage should not be more than $4 (unless you are planning on sending a huge tin with a lot of goodies to your partner). It's generally around $3/$4.

Oooh, oooh! I just recieved the cutest little tin (naked) in one of my Christmas swaps! So very cute! I was very surprised when I open my P.O. box. I guess I didn't realize a tin would mail naked, like that. Loved it! Postage by the way, was around $3.75. It was about the size of a paperback book but, a little thicker. I can't wait to fill and send one!

@christygirl What a happy surprise to find in your mailbox! Thanks for letting me know the postage amount, too.

Tins? Like cookie tins?
