You will make an 3 envelopes out of calenders, wallpaper, storybooks, what ever you can that would make mailable envelopes.

You can find templates on google or just pull apart a regular envelope and I know you have those and trace around them.

No small, tiny envelope. Big enough for a notecard or postcard or letter in them. Not just stickers plastered on a white envelope but using the above items or some you can make out of cardstock that is pretty or different. I have received some made out of maps, some that were sewed on a machine. You can decorate them, put address labels on them for swapper to address. Use your imagination to give your swapper a smile.

Newbies are welcomed but you need a COMPLETED profile. USA only

Two (2) swappers to send to Three envelopes each (postage may be more than one stamp)

No 1's from 2011, 2012, 2013 allowed. I check everyone's profile for ratings.

3's allowed but I will check why and can ban if necessary

Watching for now, I have a "1" rating that I resent overseas. She should be getting it soon and will change the rating accordingly.

We put the envelopes we make into another envelope so our partner can use it?

Envelopes you make go into another plain or whatever envie they will fit in to send to your swapper.

A helpful hint: thin glossy pages on calendars and magazines tend to tear at edge where the paper is creased. Also, if you use glue to put them together it won't hold very long because there are no fibers for the glue to grab hold too. Works much better with matte papers/pages.

Just my 2 cents :)

Yes @akhenaten that can happen but I reinforce it when I send it addressed after receiving those. Thanks for your 2 cents, always like nice comments that are helpful.

We don't need to actually add postage on the envelopes we created and sent?
