Let's keep this series going :)

This time theme in an envie is... * local *

Ideas include; notecards, memos, atcs, cut outs, smash items, postcards, stickers, embellishments, used stamps, die cuts, craft paper, stationery, mail art.. The list goes on. The only rule is that you can't send anything that isn't related to your hometown / state / where you live right now.

Examples; local newspaper clippings, flyers, postcards, magazine pages or cut outs, train tickets/bus tickets/discount cards, any local paper ephemera, menus, maps, pictures, get creative! As long as it is related to where you live anything goes! Do you have a famous drink? Send the wrapper of that produce/label! Etc...

Sticking to theme send your partner an envelope full of items of your choice. Please try and choose a variety of thing, not all the same. The minimum is 10 pieces. Please send only attractive things, papers/ephemera/craft items must be nice, not rubbish. Items you send could be used for mail art, paper projects, smash journalling/junking, ATC's, collections, etc so must be nice. You are also welcome to get creative and come up with cool ideas to send any other items that are not paper related if it fits theme. One piece counts as ONE, so you can't send for example 10 postcards and call it done, that's wrong.

Although should be cheap and flat to post, as it is not a huge swap, please don't send the minimum possible; try & make your partner happy, and send a nice, decent sized swap for the requirements. Please try and FILL your envie.

Any questions, or ideas of things that can be sent that I may have missed out, just comment below :) feel free to leave any suggestions for future themes below also.

Start searching / collecting now; it isn't profile based :) can be already from your stash or collected from around your town.

Great idea! Could I for example send a cut out foodbox from a typical german food as well?
