Let's create 3 handmade envelopes that are Floral for 1 partner. Make sure the envelopes are sturdy enough to be sent through the mail and that they are mail-able size (at least 3 1/2 inches x 5 inches to no more than 6 1/8 inches to 11 1/2 inches). You can use pretty/fun/interesting patterned craft paper, scrapbook paper, pages from old books or magazines, calendars, etc. or create your envies with paper collage, stamping, drawing. The options are endless! If the paper is thin (like magazine pages, book pages, some calendar pages, some patterned papers), therefore not sturdy enough to mail, make a lining.

Adding labels is optional. Envelopes are sender's choice in design as long as they are Floral and mail-able size. Put the 3 envelopes you create into a bigger envelope and send them to your partner with a note that includes the swap name and your Swap-bot ID.

This is USA!!!

All group rules apply.

I have received handmade envelopes in the past that have little strips of adhesive on them for sealing. You just pull off the backing and seal the envelope. They are thin strips... I have looked everywhere for them with no luck! Obviously they're called something I'm not familiar with! Please help!

I use Lick and Stick. It seems to work pretty well, but it does crinkle up the envie flap where you put it. You just apply it to the envie flap and let it dry. When you want to seal the envie, lick it and stick it.

Some people use Scor-tape.

Others use this Red tape.

I don't know what the best answer is. The Lick and Stick seems to be the most affordable...
