Take a business size envelope and cover it fully with artful goodness.

Most people receive their utilities bills in them and as we are covering them an old one can be reused, sometimes turned inside out depending on how you are covering them. Australian size is roughly 11cm x 22 or 41/2 in X 9in, but all countries vary a bit so you may have to wing it a bit. You may make the envelope yourself.

Use collage, paint and/or any decorating style of your preference. Make sure it is totally covered back and front but don't use just one preprinted sheet of paper glued over an envelope or as the envelope and call it done. Make them arty , original and unique works of art. This is Mail Art so make it stand out and be noticed!

And please glue it all well if glue is your thing. And dry it well before sending.

Don't make the address too hard for the postie to find and read. Pop something flat and papery inside for your partner to keep or reuse as mail art (senders choice)

Be kind, please rate, but don't rate too hasty for someone living out side your country. International mail is getting slower so sometimes bucket loads of patience is required. Think 4 to 6 weeks and sometimes more.

Does it have to be a used envelope or may I use a new one?

Yes a new one is perfectly OK. I just put in about reusing one because it may make it easier than finding/buying a new one :)
