what does this part mean....?

(at least 3 5/8 x 6 1/2 inches)

Folded? So it fits in a regular envelope or are we supposed to used a small brown manilla envelope?

Sorry Newbie here. Is it ok if we go over one stamp? As long as we make sure it is the correct amount of postage on it?

CraftyChristina 08/14/2018 #

Ahhhhthe ENVELOPE must be (at least 3 5/8 x 6 1/2 inches)...I think, I'm gonna roll with that...NEWBIE WOES LOL

@alishak I think the idea is the challenge of making it work with one 50 cent stamp. If not, I wasted a lot of time weighing and reweighing to get the biggest bang for the half buck

Well, crud. I was confused by that since it said we could send more than required. Already sent it in the mail today and since I had other packages, I didn't pay attention to whether it was a single 50 cent stamp package. I don't know with any confidence yet how to even plan to stay within 50 cents and I didnt want to send a crappy swap. I didnt intentionally disregard the criteria if that was the intent.

AnnieNotSoBig 08/16/2018 #

@Ktasticaz I took the "more than required" to refer to the minimum number of items in the envelope: "at least 5 items." But I can see why you thought your interpretation would be acceptable. I think, given the ambiguity and lack of swap host response, that any decent swap partner will rate you for what you thought the requirements were.

@CraftyChristina the full made envelope need to be 3 5/8 inches by 6 1/2 inches

OhanaVixen 08/16/2018 #

@AnnieNotSoBig @AlishaK Yes, the package should be one stamp. I'm sorry my wording was confusing. you can send over 5 items. sorry for the confusion

I mailed my envelope but I had to take half of the things out. Maybe next time we can do two stamps.

AnnieNotSoBig 08/16/2018 #

@OhanaVixen Thank you for clarifying and for running a newbie-friendly swap. :)

Ktasticaz 08/16/2018 #

Thanks, everyone for the response. I do read this both ways now too. Lesson learned, and if we're all having fun, then I personally will call it okay. 💕😁

JanetMarie 08/20/2018 #

I mailed mine before seeing the edit about using no more than one stamp. I didn't intentionally disregard the criteria either.

Ohanavixen I received your envelope today. I loved everything that was in there. Great job. Thank you
