Welcome to I ♥heart♥ Mail Art! Who doesn't love to receive a lovely decorated envie in their mailbox? This swap is for all those who love to display their art on the outside of envelopes for the world to see and enjoy!

So get crazy with your ink, paint, markers, pens, pencils, charcoal, stickers, glitter, glue, fabric, tape, & imagination! Decorate that envelope with your heart and soul!

The Nitty Gritty:

Each swap participant is to decorate one envelope for one partner.

Please put your best effort into this --- send something you would LOVE LOVE LOVE to receive!

It's always nice to check out your partner's profile for ideas on likes/dislikes – but it is sender's choice so it is not mandatory.

Minimum envelope size is standard greeting-card sized envelope (approx. 6.5 inches x 4.5 inches (16.5cm x 11.5cm), however, anything larger is even better!

Please include a note inside the envie indicating the swap name, and your swap user ID.

To make this swap extra-special, include a small goodie tucked inside the envie ....maybe a postcard, some stationary, your favorite poem or recipe....anything you think your partner will enjoy. You can also check out your partner's profile for a small special item you know they will love --- it's entirely up to the sender.

You will have two weeks to create and send your mail art envie.

The key is to be creative.....let your imagination fly & your inner artist shine! Get those creative juices flowing!


Must be rated a 4.95 or better

Open to newbies (unrated swappers) --- this is your opportunity to get some great ratings (and beautiful artwork) !

No 1s or recent / unexplained 3s

I am truly hopeful everyone who joins will honour their swap and not flake on their partner. However, I will angel any and all flakers, once you have rated them a 1.

Angel Rules: Must have waited the full 2 weeks after the send date. Must have contacted your partner and received no response or an unsatisfactory response. Must have rated your partner a 1 for no-send. Contact me after the above conditions have been met and I will happily send you a lovely decorated envie to make up for the one you got flaked on. Please include in your PM the name of the swap you would like an angel for and the name of your flaker so I can post their name in the flakers group.

If you have any questions, please PM me.

Hm just a question .. you say standard A4 size how do you mean that in inches/cm? Just making sure cause the whole A4 fits in 23x33cm envelope which I think is not commonly used in such swaps

Hello athanasiasmile,...Thank you for your question, and you are correct to have me qualify this. I have updated the swap to indicate the minimum size should be approximately the standard greeting card sized envelope: roughly 6.5 inches x 4.5 inches (16.5cm x 11.5cm). Anything bigger is great, too, however the minimum is probably the smallest we should go with this. It certainly doesn't have to be exactly this size, just approximately. Thanks! :)

Is it to be decorated in a holiday theme? ;>)

@Gofeen Hi! Gosh, I don't believe a holiday theme is intended.. I just set my sites on reading my partner's profile and making an envelope that will be a nice surprise for them:-) Happy Swapping!

No holiday theme required....feel free to decorate any way you wish! :)
