Description:

This is a swap for cool junk mail, flyers, menus, receipts or any other cool small paper stuff you come across. The requirement is just that it has to be unique, cool, colorful, interesting or fun. This will be international. I will set the swap time a week out from sign up date. So collect your cool paper stuffs from your week and send in a flat envelope. I'd like to keep the cost down since postage is SO ridiculous...so the weight should be 1 ounce. Let's also send a nice note/letter about the stuff you sent or maybe a little bit about what you did that week. Draw something on your envelope. Don't worry, it doesn't have to be awesome. I just think that no envelope should travel naked :) From the US, this is a regular international stamp, which makes my pockets happy. Feel free to go over that weight if you're money bags (haha). I'm hoping this will be fun!

RECAP:
- Send envelope of cool flat paper everyday stuff
- Weight requirement: 1 ounce or more
- Draw something on your envelope
- Letter about stuff you sent and/or what you did that week

p.s. This is not the place for stationary, labels, stickers and that stuff. We're talking everyday, paper goods that pass through your hands when you're not crafting!

Minimum rating 4.98. Folks with minimal/no ratings are welcome, but I reserve the right to bounce you if you seem sketchy and/or don't fill out your profile thoroughly.

Hey US Folks, if you DO want to go over one stamp, the prices are available on the USPS website. The max price was $3.50 for Asia (up to 3.5 ounces, letter size). Anything super rigid or unable to go through the machine is an extra .20. I was curious myself, so thought I'd share for those who care.

i would like to be in this swap. I am nervous about what the idea of "FUn" paper stuff is, living in a small country town I may not amass a heap of colourful "Fun" paper stuff. it will be interesting but not sure about "FUn" I am hoping that the fact I come from australia will compensate for the "fun" sort of stuff you guys have access to.

I wouldn't think too hard about it. I'd be happy with anything from Australia, really!
