Are you tired of boring white envelopes? Do you like to send and receive nice and personal mail? Then this is one for you :-)

You'll be making a profile based decorated envelope for your partner. For example if your partner's profile says he/she likes animals, you can make an animal themed envie.

The size of the envelope doesn't matter, just make it pretty. You can use any medium (draw, paint, collage, etc). Please do not just put some stickers on it, but be crafty!

Put a small surprise (tea, notepad, anything your partner likes) in the envelope.

Make sure your mail will give a smile on your partner's face :-)

Hello! I would love to join this swap, but have very little artistic ability. I generally when doing mail art will do things such as make the envelope in themed paper, then add things such as stickers, washi, quotes, etc. Would something like that work here? I put in a good amount of effort, I just can't really draw.

That seems perfectly fine, Freyja, since you are allowed to decorate using any medium.

For those who would like some inspiration on drawing, or those who say they don´t draw or think they cannot draw... Just check out usborne doodling books. Google it, find pictures on pinterest or even better, buy a book from the series for yourself. They might be for children, but who said you cannot own one yourself? Books are great for practicing doodling, drawing and coloring. I just got one of the books on sale and it is full of inspiration!

I'm really excited to get going with this, I love incorporating Stamps into Mail Art, and I'm curious as to when we receive an address to send to? Or how we go about obtaining one? :S

Me too! @dopost18 The coordinator will assign partners, when she does you will see "Partners Assigned: Yes" on your dashboard listing of this swap.
