This is for hand decorated paper with envelope, not note cards.

You will send 5 sheets (all different images) and 1 decorated envelope. They may be folded, but please fold neatly!

I do not want to restrict any techniques, but make sure that what you create does NOT bleed through the paper! Also, do not use coated paper (glossy/dull/whatever), because it does not take to ink pens well. You don't want to put ink over the main writing area for the same reason.

Also, please avoid just "sticker slapping". Using just stickers is perfectly acceptable, but make sure there is a theme and overall purpose as a piece of pretty stationary. Throwing a few cheap stickers on a piece of notebook paper is lazy and unfair!

But using notebook paper in an artful way is fine!

I will be printing some pretty images I find online onto nice paper for my swap. This is just an example of what you can do; the sky is the limit!

This is senders choice but I encourage you to look at your partners profile for what they'd like.

Newbies welcome! Please have a well filled out profile and no recent unexplained 1s or 3s! I will angel if appropriately notified and your partner rated accordingly.

I highly recommend 32 lb HP paper for this. It's lovely, smooth, thick and works perfectly with any ink, even dip pen calligraphy.
