Description:

Welcome to round twelve. This version is USA only to keep postage costs to a minimum. Feel free to create an international version.

Plain mailing envelopes are slightly depressing are they not? I love to receive envelopes that are drawn on, painted, or collaged on and I also love to decorate and send special envelopes.

Send your partner one envelope (any size) that has been fully decorated on the front and back. Please do not just put a few stickers or a little doodle in the bottom corner. Your envelope should be graphic and/or colorful. Put some artistic love into it.

Inside the envelope should be a small/cheap little present for your partner that makes an attempt to fit their profile. For instance, I like owls, so my partner could put some owl stickers into my envelope. How much you decide to include/spend on the contents of the envelope is up to you. You are only required to spend one stamp on postage. Please just send something you would be happy to receive. Also, make sure to include a note saying hello cause that is always nice to receive.

Any swapper with at least a 4.95 rating may join. I reserve the right to ban anyone I feel will not follow through, including people who only have ratings based on online swaps. I will angel if there are any flakers.

Just to confirm, i decorate the envie im sending this in too? And inside your partner gets a mail art envie and something inside it?

i'm reading it as the mail art piece is the outer envie in which you put the present...right?

Also, there is a group called Make An Envelope. Come see that too.

To clarify... you decorate the mailing envelope. That is the mail art component. Inside is the present.
