For this swap you will decorate an envelope for your partner.

A question I keep getting ~ Do we have to put the envelope we decorated in another envelope and then send it off?


You will decorate the WHOLE outside front & back of an envelope.This means ~ ONLY dime size empty spots allowed!!

You will address and stamp the outside of that decorated envelope and send it off to your partner.

You will put something inside that decorated envelope for your partner ~ it could be anything you wish ~ a note, a card, some craft items, a coloring page, etc. Anything nice for your partner!

You may decorate your envelope any way your little heart desires! Please ~ if you have any questions please ask me! Thank you!

These are so much fun and so easy to do! Please come join in!

The mail here doesn't let me completely cover the envelope. Would it be all right if I enclosed the decorated one in a regular white envelope?

That's hard to answer. Most members work hard on their envelopes in return enjoying the one sent to them. Also I have made it very clear you must decorate the envelope you send to your partner.

I am so sorry but I am going to have to say no, your envelope must be covered. I am so sorry!

Tatsu ~ can you cover the envelope except for certain parts of it like the bottom???

Tatsu ~ I just sent you a private message!

I once tried covering an envelope, with the exception of a space around the address and return address. The post office refused to send it, and I had to enclose it in a normal white envelope.

Oddly enough, I once made an envelope out of a couple of magazine pages and they were ok with it. Go figure. O.o
