This group is for those who love getting an envelope of surprises and goodies!

Please have a good rating and newbies must have a filled out profile to join this swap!

Each person will have 2 partners to send to and the swap is international.

Please fill a 6inx9in envelope with surprises for your partner. Use their profile as a guide for ideas. It can be anything: paper scraps for collaging, to ATC supplies, note cards, handmade bookmarks, etc. Use your imagination and have fun!

Don't forget to the golden rule of mail art: Only send things of the quality YOU would like to receive. Don't slap on a stick on a sheet of cardstock and call it an ATC!

Happy Swapping!

Hi there! Sorry but since googling the measures gave me different results I just have to ask... what size is an 6inx9in envelop? We use cm (centimetres) and mm (millimetres) here and I'd want to make sure I get it right. :p thank you! :)

Love this idea,but have noticed that some swap- botters have kept their profiles to a minimum and dont have a wish list...that makes things a little harder...On the up side I cant wait to get started! Who soesnt love a good surprize.

Nfexshus--did anyone answer you ATC question?Its a card that is 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches.You decorate it (scrapbook it). On the front side would be the picture/design and on the back is your information (name,city-state,name of swap,1 of # that you have made of that design...)You can buy pre-cut cards or make them from card stock,cardboard,anything sturdy.Most of the collectors like them to fit in the sports card page holders.You can google ATC cards and it will show you alot of examples.

would sticker sheets, note cards, swap cards, address labels be acceptable for this swap ?

st0lenpony 09/12/2008 #

lovehksc, yes as long as it's a quality that is acceptable. Use the golden swap rule of "Would I be happy receiving this myself?" As for sticker sheets, please don't send teacher stickers "reward" stickers. Many don't like receiving these.

Yay! I'm ready :) The envies will leave the mailbox tomorrow. I had fun shopping for these quite similar partners ;)

Oh yes, and I had to use a bigger envie... But I'm sure no-one minds that :D
