    I think it's going to be 20. 20 is a good number for this kind of swap anyway, since I have to send out all the envelopes in advance anyway...

    I will send you the trash, everyone gets the same trash. I did fill the last spot,but I think I can put together another one. I do have to look at the list to see if I have enough of the same. I might.

    I am taking the swap off OPEN and moving to Active as we are full UP!

    Of course for you, I will make another envelope. I should get this out Monday. I have to look at the list I saved on the computer.

    Just to be sure....when you say "chip board" from a cereal or tissue box, do you mean cardboard?

    Thanks,

    Food boxes like a box of cereal or tissue box is what I am calling chip board. You can buy craft chipboard, but that was not the goal.

    Cardboard is usually referring to Corragated card board boxes and I dont mean Cardboard as that is too bulky for the base, It makes it hard to fit in the sleeves. I have used small pieces of card board for decorations or texture, but not for a base or substrate.

    Chipboard – Thickness, Types, and Crafting Tips -- CreateForLess
    https://www.createforless.com/.../ch...nts-and-more.a...
    Chipboard is a pressed paperboard (non-corrugated cardboard). It's made by gluing fragments and layers of recycled paper together. The adhesive is applied using pressure and heat and ends up being smooth and rigid. The thickness of chipboard varies from very thick to very thin, but it is always heavier than cardstock.


    corrugated cardboard items have three layers – two flat pieces sandwiched around a middle wavy layer. Card board box, is not what we are looking for.

    We are full and I have moved us to active. I have envelopes for those you posted, and sent me their address. OR thoseI have from the CRRR list.

    IF you bribe me with cheesecake or chocolate I estimate I can make up another envelope.

    Wow! The description of the trash makes me feel very afraid - but it looks like you rocked it!

    This stuff is really trash Mine arrived today, and it's certainly going to take some thought. My T2T stuff (I mean when I host round 6) is going to be far more "destashing stuff I don't use" than this lot!

    I'm looking forward to playing with it!

    All item are truly trash, nothing from my stash. All items saved from the landfill. They are clean and not bio hazards in any way.

    I made cards today and realized that I did not use 2 things on the cards.
    I was playing around with the pet food bag to see what I could do. I used my hand crank die cutting machine. Made the rose. I used an ink pad to add the color. But the smaller part is actually just the orange side of the pet food bag. I didnt even take a photo of the other card. Again I only used one item and I dont think I will add another.

    I might use this card for Anns Lucky dip swap. I was picking backgrounds to add things to.
