Thursday's Things: Surprise Ball Edition

Ever since I got the surprise ball at the Dallas Museum of Art I've been kind of obsessed with the concept.  How cool would it be to do a surprise ball swap?!  I'm thinking of putting one together but I'm not quite sure how to go about it.  Have you hosted a swap before?  What's the easiest way to do one?  And what if noone signs up?!

Anyway, I took to Pinterest to get some inspiration because this would also be such a great idea for birthday favors or small gifts.  Even if the little presents aren't superawesome it's still exciting to unwrap this ball and find all kinds of tiny treasures...

  1. I haven't done it yet, but I've been wanting to make a surprise ball! The only swap I've done is an ATC swap, I paired up everyone who signed up.
