whimsy jar swap (**now closed**)

I've decided to go ahead, and host a whimsy jar swap. It's been so long since I've participated in a swap! I'm excited about it. :)

The idea of this swap is to take a small jar (7 ounces- give or take a little), and fill it up with pretty and usable craft items like buttons, paper clips, washi tape, ribbon, wooden veneers, rubber stamps, silk flowers, tags, flair badges/buttons, charms, labels (Dennison labels, anyone?), you name it. It took me 15 minutes to put this jar together. Easy!

I will make groups of 3. Each participant will be sending out 2 jars to those in their group and receiving 2 jars, as well. I've decided to make this a one on one swap.

Here's what you need to do:

1. Sign up for the swap by sending me an email at jessrodarte(at)verizon(dot)net by August 15 or until we reach a maximum of 30 participants. In your email, please include the following: your name, mailing address, blog or other social media forum address (you must have one to join). Please include a list of your likes/dislikes including favorite colors and color schemes (please be thorough! It's easier to to put a package together when there is an extensive list of likes).

2. The first step is to find 1 good-looking jars- maybe recycle a jelly jar (the Bonne Maman jars are my favorite), a pesto jar, or a vintage jar, etc.

3. Finally, fill up your jars with your partner's likes, and...

4. Ship them off to your swap partner along with your name and contact information (by August 22).

Contact me if you have any questions. 

I sincerely hope you will join! I look forward to your email. :) Feel free to let others know about the swap!

I will be accepting international participants for this swap. I will be grouping international participants with each other to keep shipping costs low.
