What are we going to be Swapping?

Each participant will create 25 decorated mini matchboxes for Christmas. The entire matchbox must be covered with good quality cardstock (solid or patterned paper) and the FRONT ONLY must be embellished at least 2-3 times (jewels, diecuts, brads, ribbon, buttons, etc.) to make it more 3-D in appearance. Doodling does NOT count as an embellishment.
Let's make these really fun and unique. Do your best most creative work. The change with this swap compared to the Halloween swap is that you can decorate the box ANY direction you choose (vertical or horizontal it's your choice!)

Don't forget to put a small treat/candy in each box!


Due Date: NO LATER than November 15, 2013 (this date is IN MY HANDS - not a mail by date)
Please be respectful of this, as I will be and others are counting on you! I will remain firm on this and ship back quickly, so please keep that in mind. These will have a quick turn-around time so that you have them back in your hands before the month of December!! Also, I will be leaving for vacation and going to be out of the country. I cannot and will not wait for late pkgs.


Return Postage ** NEW & UPDATED **
I am requiring $6 CASH (US dollars) for return shipping. Absolutely NO pre-paid labels as the PO will not accept these! I will only send these back via flat-rate envelopes/boxes so that I have tracking numbers to prove my return ship date and also so that each of you can track your pkg.

Hey miss Becky I want in for sure! Can I please do day 24? I have a question though..do we need 31 days for the Christmas one and no candy or treat in the box is needed right? Or are you keeping that part in for the Christmas one? Oh also....Terri (aka mrshoagie)....you might want to do little editing on your post!? Just saying..lol

I was going to ask the same thing? Do we need 31 if we are only counting down to Christmas? Anyway, I would like a spot please - #15 if no one has picked it.

Thanks

ok, ok, ok,!!! I screwed up again... Yes, I guess there are only 25 days to countdown to Christmas (or if I did 31 you would start opening in November sometime! LOL)

So... the # has changed to 25. And YES, please put a small treat in each box. This can be candy or something small handmade.

Sorry crycket... had to drop the #30 since I can't think/type/swap late at night...LOL

I see there are 2 sizes of boxes. Which should be used? Can the boxes themselves be made w/ a silhouette cutter or buy the premade ones?
I realize the premade ones would probably be sturdier.
Thank you.

Is there a color theme you're after Becky? Traditional, vintage, modern etc?

Also how does everyone display their countdown?

JCI - We got an update on Michele's shoulder issue. She went to see the orthopedic surgeon today and she's got something called Frozen Shoulder...long road ahead from the looks of it, but no surgery for now...
