One of the hardest parts of not acquiring more craft stuff is resisting the desire for new inspiring craft supplies. Get inspired while continuing to work from what's on hand - just work from someone else's stash!

The Craft Leftovers swap allows you the chance to trade in some of your stash for someone else's! You don't gain "more" you just swap for some new inspiration!

Swap Details: :: While everyone is encouraged to participate, do not do so unless you know for sure you can send out your package on time. If you have swaps under your belt, your rating must be 4.9 stars or higher on average.

:: This is an international swap, so make sure you have enough spare change to send a package to japan if needed, and who knows, in return you may just get a sweet package from your favorite part of France. I do not plan on having a region specific swap any time soon, it's quite a bit of work hosting a swap as it turns out and so I want to include everyone I can in the few I do host (quarterly - July, October, January, and April).

:: You will send One envelope of your leftover goodies to One partner. I cannot assign more than one partner to any one swap member, so please do not ask. I've tried. Can't do it.

:: Each package must be at least 6×9″ – cram it full, all you can fit - but don't go larger, we are doing an equal trade.

:: You can send any kind of craft supply – stash, recycled, vintage, or leftovers – DO NOT Purchase anything for this swap.

:: Check your partner’s profile to see if they have a crafting preference. And as such, only swappers with fully filled out profiles will be allowed to participate. If you are new, make sure to add a few details about the kind of crafting you like to do.

:: All supplies must be in good shape – no stains, holes, or funky smells.

Not sure what to do with little bits of this and that? Check out the project archive for all kinds of ideas, inspirations, tutorials, and projects on what to do with leftovers!

Happy Crafting & Swapping!

Are you speaking of a 6" x 9" flat manila envelope or a 6" x 9" box with a 3rd dimension? Thank you.

Hmmm... I don't have any stars...

Are we allowed to send un opened things we have already bought?

craftleftovers 10/18/2010 #

Yep, a 6x9 flat manila envelope.

That's okay, you should be able to still join if you don't have any ratings yet, you just have to have good ratings if you do have them :) Just make sure you can meet the commitment of the swap before joining.

You can send new unopened items, part of the swap is finding a new home for things you don't use/want/need.

Thanks a bunch. :-) It will help me a lot, as I've got several items laying around unopened and desperately wants to be used. :-P

Hey Craftleftovers, There are a number of folks signed up for this swap who have nothing or very little listed in their profiles. Would you mind encouraging them to fill them out? I always like to tailor my swaps according to people's profiles and it's hard when they have barely anything written about themselves. Thanks!

Hi TheArtful Dogger, Filling out the profile was one of the stipulations of the swap so I'll be reminding everyone to do so today. It definitely makes it easier to swap when your partner let's you know what they like.
