You who have been doing these all along know how to. For others, use card pretty card stock, calendars, wallpaper, magazines., coloring books, maps, etc.

Sturdy enough to send in the mail. Try to make them usable size, not tiny gift card size , please.

Do not fold in half to get them in a sent envelope. Plenty of templates if you google it, or take an envelope you have and trace it.

Everyone loves to get these in the mail. I will check ratings, no 1 rating this year. Newbies ok but will want a competed profile.

You can do these ahead of time, don't have to wait for names.

Sending 3 envies to 2 swappers. = 6 to do. Questions?

Maps Make great business size envelopes for sending letters. Turn around one week, so start now if you can.

A lot of people who make greeting cards use or make envelopes that will fit a typical greeting card. Half of a piece of cardstock is 8 1/2 x 5 1/2. Folded it is the base for a greeting card.[4 1/4 x 5 1/2 ] so envy is a touch bigger....approx 4 3/8 x 5 3/4. These are sold as "Invitation"size in print shops and office supply stores. LL
