For the LOVE of supplies swap!

Last year I made these fun Valentine supply boxes full of pink and red goodies for my etsy shop. This year I thought that some of you may be interested in getting in on the fun of putting something similar together, so I thought I'd host a swap! Swap button by Sandy. Thank you!
You can either buy a box full of chocolates (give them to your partner or keep them for yourself) or take a look at Michael's for the "naked" Martha Stewart Valentine's box that will be coming out soon and decorate that. I saw an ad for it, but my local store doesn't have it in yet. Either way you go, I would suggest a large size box. You will also want to get some small little cups to hold the goodies. The swap entails filling 20 mini cups full of bits of Valentine's crafty goodies. Each filled with a different item. For example one cup with a bit of lace, one with some ribbon, one with a few buttons, etc. You take the chocolates out of the box and re-fill the box with the cups of goodies. This could be ribbon, flowers, fabric, lace, embellishments, beads, buttons or anything else you may think of that your partner would enjoy. I will take sign-ups for this swap until Sunday, January 6th (or the first 100 participants, whatever comes first!) and items MUST be mailed by February 1st. That way people will have a bit of time to use some of their fabulous new supplies for Valentine's crafts. Please leave a comment on this post if you know that you can make the send out date and want to participate. Make sure your email is included. International players are welcome, but please let me know if you're outside the US or if you're willing to ship outside the US in your comment, so I can pair you up appropriately. There is also one participant that would like to have her daughters involved. If you have a daughter that would like to do this as well, let me know in your comment. I'm looking for 3 girls. Thanks!

Hope you'll all join in the fun!

THIS SWAP IS NOW CLOSED!!!
