This is a USA only swap. Senders choice. Swappers must have a rating of 4.98 or higher, must have at least 5 type 3 completed swaps, and must have a completed swap in the 3 last months. I will be checking profiles.

For this swap you will have one partner, and will send the following:

A plastic, metal or fabric, pencil box approximately 8x5x2in (this is the size of the Sterlite brand, however you can use whatever brand you like).

Decorated in the theme of Halloween. Nothing GORY!!!!

Pick 8 from the following list to fill the pencil box with: All item should be a Halloween theme. Candy would be considered extra. Please note any allergies on your partners profile.

-30 stickers (Can be sheets, loose, or cut from sheets. Puffy/textured stickers are ok too. None smaller than a dime. No teacher/rewards, bent, dirty, old, non-sticky stickers)

-3 different ribbon or flat lace (minimum 12 inches each)

-10 buttons

-10 flat backs/cabochons

-3 journal cards

-10 paper punches or die cuts

-10 different stamped images

-1 rubber stamp

-5 wood/scrabble letters

-1 fun shaped paper puncher

-2 letter sets (1 letter set = 2 sheets and a matching envelope)

-3 blank note cards with envelopes (3 different cards, no duplicates)

-10 fun paper clips (neon, fun shapes, etc. No plain silver ones)

-3 postcards (blank, store bought)

-3 fun colored pens (no black, blue, or red ink, unless they are glitter or metallic pens. A twist pen that has 3+ different color inks also counts, as long as it has 3+ inks that are yellow, orange, pink, purple, green, brown, silver, gold, etc.) -6 different washi/deco samples (minimum 12in each) -10 cute mini memo sheets (that will fit in the box without bending or folding. There can be duplicates or all the same of these)

Send your partner nice clean items. Do not send you partner pens that the ink is almost gone or that don't work, stained or smelly items, etc. Send things you would be happy to receive. Be sure to include something in the pencil box with your user name and the name of the swap. If you receive your pencil box and it has 8 of the listed items, please rate your partner a 5.

I will not be putting a $ amount on this swap as a lot of experienced swappers will already have many of these items in their stash.

A few questions:
Can we send a decorated zipper pouch instead of a box?
Can we stray from the list a little? I love Halloween and tend to go overboard on it. Should I be asking my partner these questions?

I understand if we have to stick to the list.

Oh, and to my partner I love hand made......stencils, stamps, Halloween crafts......so those kind of substitutes are welcome here.

Any type of pouch is okay, That is just a min. size. I already have mine picked out and it it s zipper monster pouch. That list is just suggestions. This is Really anything crafty or what your partner will like.... Just with a Halloween twist.
