This swap is for one awesome decked out envelope!you will pick an envelope and draw, stamp, paint, color, glue till its just plain awesome. maybe even make an envelope out of something totally new! felt, vellum, Christmas cards. then you will put in a note with you user name and swap name. then maybe some happy smiley things for your partner! there will be just one this time since its international! then stamp it and send it! its always great to search your partners profile to likes but this is senders choice just swapping art with new friends! this is a newbie friendly swap and for people who might be trying to beef back up their profile score, like me who is coming back after a while away. so keep that in mind as you sign up. i will personally angel any failed swaps. but i wont have to right guys?! right!

I have some questions about this mail art thing, hope you don't mind. So if I understand it correctly the point is to decorate the envelope and send just a small note inside? So you send the decorated envelope 'naked' without anything else around it? Aren't you afraid that your whole work will be for nothing if the mail service screws up your envelope? :o Sorry for these noob-questions but I love to have everything clear so I don't mess swaps up :)

@Spaceinvaders yes, decorate the envelope, put in some smallish things, like used stamps, postcard, stickers. Add a note about who it is from. Stick a stamp on it and post it. We all take the risk of our mail getting getting screwed up by the mail service every time we send anything so this will be no different.. :). You could always tape the sides if you are worried about it..

Okay thanks! I'll give it a go, seems awesome! :D

personally i usually use an inexpensive car and blank envelope as a set up then decorate it :) i think if you sent an empty envelope it might get eaten

So this is makers choice themed right?

If worried about your envelope why not add a light weight card board inside as if sending photos to a friend will stop envelope becoming damaged. You can also use fun tape in the edges like a frame then envelope want tear open. Only major suggestion is out of experience make it clear who is being sent to and who is. Sender as my long term pen pal and I have had mail sent back to us by mistake :-) now I have a pointed To Address sticker to my pal so no mistake :-) Envelope Art is great fun! Enjoy!

Great idea to enforce the envelope, I would not have thought of that. Thanks!
