Take an envelope and cover it fully with artful goodness. And I mean fully! Back and front without very much empty space. Definitely not the smallest one you can find and you can reuse an envelope if you are doing collage.

Use paint, collage, and/or mix it up in 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). Empty envelopes sometimes buckle in the machinery and get shredded.

Be kind, please rate, but don't rate too hastilyy as the postal system has slowed down especially in Australia and some items seem to go walkabout in circles before heading in the right direction. Communicating with your partner is the key.

If you're stuck for ideas choose a theme like flowers ,animals, a colour or just mix up anything and everything.
