You will have ONE partner. You are to send 25 wrapped items. These items will be Scrapbook supplies and Craft supplies related items. Each item must be at least $1.00 value making the total value of $25.00 for 25 items. You can certainly go over that amount if you wish to do so. Shipping cost is extra. Each item must be store bought unopened packaged item.. NO handmade items except for the Christmas card (not part of 25 items) that you'd like to add, but that can be store bought, too. You are to number each wrapped item starting from #1, #2, #3, etc. The reason there 25 wrapped gifts is because starting on December 1st, #1 wrapped gift will be open, December 2nd, #2 wrapped gift will be open, etc. #25 is the best gift to open since that will be on Christmas day.

This swap is profile based. After all, you want your swap partner to like the items that they open, right? With that being said, profiles MUST have a "likes" or "wish list". This swap is for scrapbooking supplies and crafting supplies related items. When mailing your items, please use a USPS Priority Mail PADDED flat rate envelope which includes delivery confirmation, but you can certainly go larger.

*** PLEASE NOTE: Not all Post Office carries the USPS Priority Mail padded flat rate envelope which measures: 9 1/2 x 12 1/2. You may have to order it online at usps.com website, it is free to order these envelopes and ships to your home for free, but it will cost approximately $8.00 (unless price has changed) to mail out. *

Again, it must be the PADDED flat rate envelope, NOT the regular flat rate envelope.

Re-cap on Guidelines (requirements) to follow:

USA only ONE partner Profile base 25 wrapped gifts, label as #1, #2, #3 etc Store bought items. No handmade. Value of EACH item is $1.00 or more, up to $25.00 for 25 items total, but you can go over, it's up to you. Must use USPS Priority Padded flat rate envelope (includes delivery confirmation tracking number), but you can go larger if need be which cost more. Must mail items by Tuesday, November 23, 2019. Remember, Thanksgiving is next week and the Post Office is closed on Thursday, Nov 28, 2019, so there might be an added day or so for delivery. Delivery can take up to 3 days or so which should be enough time to open their first wrapped gift on December 1, 2019

** IMPORTANT:** Hang on to your receipt or Write down Delivery Confirmation Tracking Number. Then PM (private message) your swap partner of the delivery confirmation number.

Rating is 4.99 and above. NO 1s or 3s in 2019. Must be active in Swap Bot. Must have at least 30 Type 3 swaps completed. I will ban swappers if I find things questionable on their profile and/or don't have a "likes" or "wish list" on their profile before the last signup date which is November 5, 2019. I will NOT be able to angel. Please don't be a Scrooge and flake out or you'll be in Santa's Naughty List - that's not cool. This swap is a huge commitment. If you feel you cannot agree to the terms and guidelines, then this swap is not for you.

Let's try to have fun in this swap. This will be my 8th year hosting this swap.

I honestly did open each numbered wrapped gift on each day which felt like Christmas every day.

Would love to participate in this swap - at the rate newbie type 3 swaps are posted, I won't even be able to participate next year. If you have someone you know that would do a 1:1 swap for this, I would be interested in connecting.

Just thought I'd add you can order a whole case of the envelopes for free from the USPS website. If you pay for it online you usually get a small discount you can then even do a carrier requested pickup and they'll pick it up from where requested the next business day.

***For my partner *** I'm especially interested in vintage items to craft with...this includes old books, ephemera of all types, ribbons and doilies and funky interesting bits and bobs ...I'd so rather have this type of treasure than dollar store items...I WILL NOT MARK DOWN FOR NOT NEW GIFTS! Thanks for everything in advance ❤

I’m so excited for this swap. Have been waiting to see it posted. Had a great swap last year and had so much fun opening all the great gifts everyday.

When partners are assigned, I would like to know if my partner wants me to adhere to the padded priority or if it's OK with her/him to send a larger box.

A Priority Mail package went out to my partner yesterday. Tracking # PMd to her today. Enjoy!
