For this swap, we'll be making some postalettes! Everyone will have 1 partner to whom they'll send one nicely crafted handmade postalette.

If you're not familiar with them, postalettes are something of a cross between a postcard and a notecard; a tri-fold card with a message written inside, postage & address info on the back, sealed, & sent naked (no envelope).

If you're unsure about the dimensions or process, I recommend making a 4" x 7" card by taking a piece of cardstock measuring 9" x 7" & folding once at 4" & again at 8". This is just a suggestion; you can vary the dimensions if you want as long as the size is within the range accepted for regular first-class mail.Then, add some pizzazz! Really make it something special that you'd be happy to receive; don't just slap a couple of stickers on a piece of cardstock & call it done. Decorations are sender's choice, so feel free to make these up before partners are assigned, if you like, or, you can wait until after, if you'd like to make a more personal, profile-based card for your partner. The message inside can be whatever you like: a letter, a quote, a sketch, a joke, a recipe...whatever you feel like sharing. Seal the card (using glue, tape, sticker, or sealing wax etc.) & put the postage & address info on the back the same way you would for an envelope. Done! :)

I've made a quick diagram to better explain here: https://imgur.com/gallery/LzxDCBb
