I love those little chinese takeout boxes and am just testing the water to see if this will fly and get some interest.

So we will get a black (or make it black) takeout box or something similiar and put some goodies in it. The catch? It must have 1 thing each that has to do with one of the deadly sins. For instance, a lustful atc, something good to fulfill your partners gluttony etc. The key is to not duplicate the prize. Like...no 2 atcs, be creative and different.

So lust, greed, pride, sloth, gluttony, envy, wrath. Anyone??

oooooh I love this idea.... I'll be in nearer the time :-)

Do you mind if I maybe run a regional UK one in one of my other groups?!

I don't mind at all sweetie!!

I think I will join as soon as I open up some spots! I have some ideas already for a couple!

This is totally going on my watchlist!

would a gift box be suitable? english takeaway always comes in plastic tubs or polystyrene/ foil trays, no noodle boxes like on American tv so i wouldn't have a clue where to get one of those!

That would be fine @kittenred

It can have an ATC, but only one.

I'm having the same problem with finding a black take out box, or even a single white one, where does everyone else find them? I even checked Ebay but they only have black in bulk that I can't afford and they have polka dots, bats, robots, dark blue, etc but no single black and no single white (to paint black). Where do they sell these in singles?

VivaLaDiane 08/12/2011 #

I will ammend it to not be a black one, we can do any color.

@kittenred - you can get cake boxes and party boxes that are a similar shape to the nifty American noodle boxes... Let me know if you need one as I have a party shop near to me that has them :-)

Because I am moving I promised myself not no join too many swaps before I am settled in the new house, but I just HAVE to do this one! I wish you all could see the Norwegian series "The seven deadly sins", a very funny, informative and amusing series where a famous Norwegian .... God what can I call him? Well he is in radio, TV, plays in a metal band, and he is VERY funny. He and two friends travel the world to commit the seved deadly sins. Lust-Bankok, Greed-England, Envy-Sweden, Gluttony-Norway, Wrath-Israel, Sloth-Denmark and Pride-LA/Las Vegas. SO FUNNY!!! :o) Can I make the takeout-box myself from Bazzill paper or simular? And can it be sent flat? Otherwise I am sure it will be crushed in the mail....

I have seen takeout boxes in pretty much every colour including black at craft stores in the US (AC Moore and Micheals). I don't know if they're also available at craft stores in Europe, but it's maybe worth a try?

i did a swap like this (7 deadly sins) a year or so ago.. it's a lot of fun... But it might be difficult to fit all seven into a small container... I don't think I can join because of international postage, but I am watching ...
