Here is the challenge I give to you...

Create a snail mail craft kit for a partner using the theme: Happy Mail! Yes the pic is from Swap-bot 2013...but what a great idea right! So let's create a snail mail kit for a fellow swap-bot user!!

What is Happy Mail for you? What would you like to receive in a kit?

Here are some ideas:

There are many more "snail mail kit" ideas out there if you google. I don't want to put up etsy ideas or those for sale, they are for sale for a reason, but you can get ideas on how to package from them and maybe buy yourself or a friend a kit to support them......but moving on....

Here are some things you could include:

• stationery sets (2 sheets of paper, 1 envelope) • postcards (2 minimum) • decorative erasers (2 minimum) • pencils ( 2 minimum) • mini sticker sheets (2 minimum or 10 loose) • decorative note cards (blank inside minimum 2) • decorative sticky tabs (at least 5) • mini-envelopes (minimum 2) • origami paper ( minimum 3) • vintage ephemera such as stamps (at least 5 cancelled or 2 regular), game pieces (5 minimum), maps, and coloring pages ( at least 2 minimum) • confetti! • fun surprises like pins, mini-rulers, stencils, mini stapler, etc Ribbon (12" minimum) Washi tape on a wax card (at least 3 wraps around card) Stamped images (at least 3 nicely done) Gems (at least 6 small or 3 large) paper flowers (at least 3)

Pick 6 different items from the list (all minimums shown but you are welcome to send more) to send your partner. You will have one partner to send to, this way you can focus on making them a nice kit. Package this as you would want to receive, do not put your items in an envelope and send. This needs to come as a "kit".

Include your name and swap name on envelope or a little note inside. If you do not put your name and swap name you may not get credit for this swap.

I check profiles before assigning partners. No recent 1s or 3s without an explanation. I will angel if you contact me and let me know you didn't receive. Newbies are welcome with a well filled out profile.

Contact me if you have any questions.

Thanks for looking over my swap and I hope you'll join

What a fun idea! I can’t wait for this swap! Can we send things not included in the list such as envelope seals?

When you write, ..."needs to come as a kit", will you kindly explain what you mean? Each gift should be wrapped? I'm excited but a little confused. Thank you!

@Ellen101 I think she means put it all together into a package like the picture

Soapboxgirl 07/10/2019 #

Yes put it together as one kit in like a ziplock baggie or the like. You're welcome to wrap things individually but not necessary.
