One Hour Basket Swap

Swap Rules:

1. This is a blind swap. You will be assigned (by email) a swap partner by September 1. They will not know you're making for them, so don't give it away!
2. You will make an original kelly hour basket tailored to your partner's tastes (favorite colors, designers, etc)
3. If you want to post preview pics, use the hashtag #cbusmqswap (this works on Instagram or Facebook, but posts might not be seen on FB depending on your privacy settings)
4. Please post a collage on Instagram of baskets you like By September 1st
5. You must bring the basket to the October 25th meeting to exchange!

It's that simple! This swap round has no extras or any other rules, so it's a good way to get your feet wet if you've never swapped before.

You can sign up for the swap HERE. Sign ups close on August 29
If you have any questions, feel free to ask on the Facebook group or message Leigh.
