Easter Basket Swap !!!!!
So, the other day I am looking at my Pile of recyclables and started thinking about Our Planet and wanting to do more for the environment. And I spied these :
And thought, How perfect for mini Easter Baskets !! Lets have a Swap !!! :)
Here's the particulars : You will have TWO partners each and you need to make Two mini baskets from plastic yogurt cups. ( So they will all be the same size. Mine are standard, 3x3x2 ) Then you need to fill it with FIVE items, preferably Easter related. Five only, no more, no less. That makes it Easy, and Fair for all. Now, the baskets can be crocheted, paper crafted, fabric covered, any medium you choose, as long as there is a yogurt cup inside. :) Easy Peasy ??? The sign ups close next Friday Feb. 26th, and on Sunday, the 28th, I will send you the names of your partners. The baskets will need to be mailed, NO LATER THAN March 20th. Because this is such a short turn around ( 3 weeks ) , it is open to USA participants ONLY, due to the shipping time. We will share our baskets on our blogs, or in the flickr group I will set up, on Saturday, April 3rd, the day before Easter. I also would like this to be for Bloggers only.
So, to sign up, please send me an Email, with your Name, Blog Name, Email, Address and favorite Colors.
Please snatch the Swap Picture and put it on your blog and spread the word !!
I am SO excited !!!! I will share tips in a few days on how to cover these, so don't worry, You can do it !!!
