For this swap, we will keep it sweet and simple. You pick a box size, you fill it up. Let’s see how much we can stuff into those boxes! At least one item must be crafted. You will be required to check in at least once a week during the swap.

Please choose the box size you would like to send:

Small Box → 8 11/16" x 5 7/16" x 1 3/4" → cost  $9.45
Medium Boxes → 11 1/4" x 8 3/4" x 6" or 14" x 12" x 3 1/2" → Cost $16.10


You are required to post in the thread and check in once a week. I will provide a check in question to get the conversation rolling.

When Sending your questionnaire please include the swap name, RtJ (Request to Join) and your user name. Send it to @gozer.

Thank you! I’m going to think about the box size. I love the idea of the challenge of smaller items, but also love the idea for freedom in the bigger box. Now to ponder.

yeah. I am torn on box size. After I received them I thought the small looked a little too small. I am still thinking it over.

Yes! I think that inflation has hit the sizes and the prices! I swear the small used to be bigger, but it’s been a long time since I’ve used a small box. :slight_smile: I feel like since I’m also doing the easter egg swap that I’ll have enough of a challenge with making things tiny! ha!

I need to get a hold of one of each of the boxes then I can choose. I have a package to go to the P.O. this week so I’ll grab them then.

Yeah, I’m with you. I think I’ll probably go with the medium box. But still ruminating…

You can go online and have them send them to you free of charge. I ordered mine and got them within 2 days.

I just ordered up a packet of each. One never knows if one’s errands will get thwarted around here so good thinking, thanks for reminding me about that option.

Hey! What box size is everyone going with? I’m still debating before I send in my questionnaire.

I debated quite a bit, but settled on med.

I debated, too, then chose small (but offered to upgrade to medium if that would help matching partners.)
