    I have always got bags of these wonderful, colorful, scraps anywhere from 2" x 2" and up. What are crumbs actually? And what is the best, cheapest way to send them. In an envelope, box etc. I would love it if you could share with me on the info. I know there are plenty of people out there who could use and would like to get a package. How much can you stuff into a container etc. Anyone wiht experience? I have a lot of crumbs ready to find a new home. I cut kits for charities and always have scraps around. Thank you for your time. :D

    If you send a envelope full, it would probably be cheaper to go media mail.

    If you send a box full, you might want to check out the flat rate boxes from the post office.

    Hi, Well the Post Office has mailers small , medium and large... small is 4.95 Medium is 10.70 and large is 14.70 these are boxes and can hold whatever you can put in em up to 80 lbs I think it is... anyway that is one option... and of course there are the envelopes you can get for mailing the squishy kind they go by weight and postage is set. Hope this helps out.

    Media mail only works if it's a book. Even magazines do not qualify. :( The priority mail envelopes can be stuffed. I've seen people get six+ yard in one! And if you print the postage online it's less expensive and you get delivery confirmation free.

    I'd love to send some fun scraps to someone. First one to send me their address gets some wild scraps. I wish I could send everyone a batch, but until I win the lottery...

    Uhhhh, I've been throwing away anything smaller than 2" coz I just can't do anything that smal ... oops! Guess I'll save up and give away for the shipping. I'm working on a few projects right now and after reading this thread, still don't see what's the smallest size to save or do I just save it all?
