I saw these in the store for back to school and love them! I thought it would be so much fun to decorate and have fun with these! so here is the swap!

Buy a pencil box (these are $1 at Kmart, wal-mart, target, the 99 cents store) etc.

Decorate the outside however way you choose, stickers, paints, etc.

Choose one group of items listed below. Fill your box with those items as listed...

  1. Candy/gum/sweets/hot and cold drink satchets (if you do this one, please remember to send individually wrapped or packaged items--nothing exposed)


  1. stationery items--pens, pencils, letterset, memo paper, stickers, etc


  1. crafty items--buttons, brads, beads, etc


  1. fun small random things from your partner's profile. (just because i cant think of anything else, LOL!)

Fill up the box to the top. Close it --and tape it to seal it so it will not pop up in transit.

Please do not ship by itself (or naked) Please put this is another package, box, large envie...whatever works..

Senders choice. However please review your partners profile for any heavy dislikes/allergies.

Receivers: If you receive a box that meets the requirements, please rate a 5. If you do not like or cannot use anything, please feel free to re-swap. Lets keep things happy please.

Newbies are more than welcome. Price should not exceed $5. (not including postage) Please feel free to use anything in your stash as long as it is not dirty, torn, ripped, stained or otherwise damaged.

I will check all profiles. No flakers allowed.

USA only.

Edited: Notes:

To all ppl who sign up for this swap, two notes

1) This swap is only for the kind of pencil boxes as pictured above. Please do not send pencil cases or cigar boxes or any other cases/boxes. Please do not disappoint your partner.

2) Please fill out your profile. I am going through profiles and notice that some of you have nothing there. I will have to ban you especially if you have been on the site for awhile and have no trades, because I am not sure if you are a flaker and your partner will be at a disadvantage of what to send you. I have sent some of you notes to do so and appreciate that you have.

3) also, i found a couple of underage ppl who signed up. If you are under 18, you will be banned because i believe the site says you have to be 18 to sign up. If you see any different, please let me know.

Thanks and happy swapping!

This week through Saturday(7/24), Walgreens is selling pencil boxes for 49 cents. Then you can put more money into goodies!

Can we combine themes? Are we supposed to ship these naked or in another box?

ladyaries7 07/22/2010 #

@electrogeek77 -thanks for the note! will be checking that out!

@prettykitty84 -about combining themes--sure if you want--that's really option # 4. i just didnt want the swap to be too expensive-but its up to you! and i would advise shipping another box--just because its safer and it leaves you freer to decorate the top without having to worry about where to put the postage.

Is it okay if the price exceeds $5 in value, but you never really spent 5 dollars anyways? Like things that you just buy in bulks, but have extras of that you want to swap?

KawaiiAiko 07/22/2010 #

Oh, and can we also fold the lettersets to make the be able to fit into the pencil boxes?

ladyaries7 07/22/2010 #

@kawaiiaiko -thanks for asking. the price is up to you! i was just making sure it was a reasonable price for everyone..and dont want anyone comparing that theirs is less than others in terms of money spent...and they spent more than what their partner spent...i dont want it to get petty...just be fun..that's why i said stash is ok...but your call....and also regarding the lettersets? i have received folded lettersets and they were okay but just one fold.if you have told fold mulitple times, its kind of useless ..so maybe smaller memo paper?

KawaiiAiko 07/25/2010 #

@ladyaries7 Oh, okay. :) I gotcha'. ^^ And about the letter sets, that's fine. :) I might send some as extras, not in the box. And small memo papers, already got 25 of 'em in the box! Hehehe. I want to spoil my partner. ;) This is will be one of my first swaps, and I want it to be special, and I want to make my partner HAPPY! :D Heehee. ^^

i have taken @kawaiiaiko out of the swap due to previous flaking on another swap-- ive been flaked on many times and its not a good feeling and i dont anyone here to feel that they will have the same problem. its really bad to know you spend $$ and effort on a swap and get nothing in return, not even a msg. so, until i receive a msg otherwise, i will continue to ban all previous flakers. thanks.

I bought a cloth one that zippers, i figured it would be eaiser to ship AND carries about the same amount of stuff.

ladyaries7 08/ 7/2010 #

thanks all for joining my swap! Pls remember to have a filled out profile so your partner can have more options! thanks.

ladyaries7 08/ 9/2010 #

@conniebobear -i believe that is a pencil case not a pencil box. What i am describing for this swap is a box like the one listed above. Hope this helps!

Just found a pencil box @ Target for very cheap! =) Can't wait!

valerie520 08/11/2010 #

so the box is shipped naked? Or do we, can we send it in another shipping box or large envelope? I get freaked out about sending things 'naked'. just want to be clear before signing up. thanks!

ladyaries7 08/11/2010 #

@valerie520 thanks for asking.. please, ship it in another evie or box. Do not ship naked.
