Handmade envelopes are beautiful! I love the pictures and colors handmade envelopes have that store bought ones don't. They are also a great way to reuse that incredible piece of paper that you don't want to throw away!

We will be sending 2 partner 3 handmade envelopes. At least 2 of the envelopes that you send to each partner must be made by you. This swap is for handmade envelopes, not store bought ones that you have decorated. This is not to say however that you aren't allowed to decorate the envelopes that you have made.

EDIT: These envelopes should be bigger than ATC sized. Approximately A2 size (which is 4.375*5.75) and larger.

One week to make 6 envelopes? That seems excessive. Why not 2 weeks? Many of these swap deadlines overlap, making it hard to do quality work you’re proud of, and hopefully your partner enjoys. I would love to participate and make some odd and fun shaped envelopes, but the timeframe just doesn’t permit it.

@mayhem65 they're not profile based so you could start making them now :)

If it doesn't work for you that's fine. Maybe next time. Personally I think 6 envelopes in a week is nothing. I made 113 last week. Excessive, yes. But 6 in a week is less then one a day.

You can print out the envelope templates (found online) and make them in no time.
