International Players

For this swap you shall take a standard Altoids tin (not the tiny tins), and alter it by decorating it with whatever medium you choose, and then you will fill your tin with crafty odds & ends.

Examples of Odds & Ends: buttons, embellishments, paper ephemera, ribbon, rickrack, beads, rubberstamps, fabric swatches, etcetera.

1 partner, 1 month to fill and send out.

Open to those with good feedback in craft-associated swaps. If necessary, I ban unsuitable swappers before partners are assigned.

OK, I signed up but i have a question thing:

We don't really get the Altoids in this country. I do however have a small, hinged-lidded tin three-and three-quarter by two-and-a-half inches... would that do? :)

Feel free to ditch me if it's not ok...

I think that is the size of an Altoid tin, Alice, so go ahead :)

Cool. Cheers.

We also don´t have this tins here in Germany, sorry.

Is a tin 5 cm x 9,5 cm x 3 cm like this ok?

Okay....packabe should have been "package." I can't type yet. Have not had enough caffiene, but I'm working on it. ;)
