Have you ever thrown a message in a bottle into the ocean? Better yet, did you hear back?
For this swap you'll be tossing your bottle into the ocean of mail and letting the postal currents carry it on to your partner. You will send your swap in a water bottle like the ones shown in the picture above (at least 16oz). You can buy one just like them at the dollar store but any similar bottle is fine. A screw on lid is strongly recommended so it doesn't wiggle off in transit.
You will fill the bottle full with goodies such as but not limited to washi tape, stickers, candy, tea, embellishments, pens, ephemera, beads, charms, candles, lotion, make up samples, chap stick, craft supplies, ribbon, lace, die cuts, stamps, magnets etc.
You must include at least 1 item that represents your location
You must include at least 1 profile based item
You will also include a message for your partner answering the following questions
1 - Where your message is originating from and something interesting about the place.
2 - If you were to have thrown this in the ocean/sea what is the name of the one closest to you?
3 - Have you ever thrown a message in a bottle into the ocean/sea?
4 - Did you hear back?
These will be sent naked like a postcard. The water bottle is your packaging. All the items will go into the water bottle. You will screw the lid on tight, wrap the lid with tape for extra security then, you will address the outside of the water bottle and apply proper postage.
Any food must be in sealed factory wrapping. Please send only items in the condition you would like to receive them in. The bottle must be mostly filled, not just a few items.
Must be a rated and established swapper in good standing. No unresolved 1s or 3s. No 1's or 3's in the last 6 months. No missing forum tags. Please be sure to clear sent swaps from your dash prior to partner assignment.
Please remember to include your swap-bot username and the name of the swap with your swap. Thank you for participating and have fun!
Edited to add - the water bottle is not required to be see through and you are welcome to decorate it however you see fit. Decoration is not required but welcome.
