I have a private decorated envie swap but I wanted to put out a public swap along the Thanksgiving line.
The envelope can be any size. Decorate it anyway you would like with drawings, glitter, stamps, stickers, whatever. You are the artist! I beg you to spend some time on sending something you would like to pull out of the mailbox and only join if you intend on doing that.
You don't have to be a great artist, I know I am not and I use stickers but I enjoy creating and putting my best effort forward. It can be done!
I made the deadline so that our partners can receive their envie by Turkey Day!
Perhaps make the envie now so that when partners are assigned, you can quickly add the name and address and send the envie on it's way. No more excuses for tardy swaps!
What is a decorated envie?
It is an addressed envelope with a postage stamp on it but all around the front of the envelope is decorations around the theme. The envelope is not naked any longer!
I also write on the front the name of the swap.
Back side is optional.
You do not have to make the envelope.
You cannot make an envelope out of a calendar page for the decoration and call it a day. You can make do this if you add other components to the envelope to make it decorated.
The envelope is sent through the mail so the post office, the mailman and then your swap partner sees the decorations.
A heart is given by your partner if they are pleased by your work. You do not have to put anything inside the envelope except for the name of the swap but it is always nice to include some cheer.
Please send your envie on time! Make it now and then when you get your partner's info, you just have to write their name and address on the envie. Viola! Sent on time.
If you would like to make a Canadian or International version of this swap, be my guest!
