We all love mails and we love to see our mailbox happy. We all have different styles and we use different things / items for our outgoing mails. So wouldn't it be fun to put together a SNAIL MAIL KIT and put it in a Ziplock bag!

Here's how it goes:

So you will put together some mailing supplies and stationary and create a "Snail Mail" Kit in a ziplock bag.

Here are few things that you might like to include: a couple of letter sets and pretty pens, color papers, date stamp, thank-you cards, a few postcards, stickers, airmail stickers, stapler, some spare envelopes, post it notes, glue stick, a small address book, scissors, etc... and the list can go on forever. If you think of more stuff to add here, post in the comments below.

Well, you at least need to have 5 basic items in the package. But you can aim to get the heart by adding extra and make the package/ziplock as big as you want.

You will have 10 days to send this swap, so only join in if your time permits. Also NO FLAKERS please. I am open for suggestions.

Tip: Please make sure you put some love and thoughtfulness in making this kit and is something that you would be happy and excited to receive.



Stickers to seal the envelope flap. How about a couple of handmade/mail art envelopes (if that's your thing)? How about items that stretch the norms of snail mail, eg, an envelope made of semi-see-through tracing paper? Blank swap cards with a space for name, s-b name, swap name, date, email address, what's being sent, etc? Personalised address labels?Letter sets? Stickers? Postcards? Note cards? Little envelopes or pouches for storing stamps and address labels? A colour theme for the whole swap, (you can choose your own color) eg, candy pink + apple green? Purple + orange? Blue + yellow? Pale blue + white? Red + blue + white (Air Mail colours)? Black + grey? Beige + crimson?

Oh, OK, you get the idea. :X A mini booklet for recording sent and received mail (name, address, date, items sent/received, answered or not, etc)? Just a few ideas....

Please enter more suggestions below.
