Take a postcard or a homemade postcard, and turn the back into a pocket or layers of pockets.

Inside the pockets, include PAPER - some stationary or scrapbooking paper/old book pages, STICKY - a card of generous washi samples or a sheet of stickers or a couple of art stickers or a page of custom printed address labels for your partner to use on their outgoing mail etc, and PERSONAL - a letter about things you have in common based on their profile,or a very special recipe with a note on why it is meaningful to you, or a photo of your favourite memories etc. Plus a note with the swap name and your username of course.

That's AT LEAST ONE ITEM PER CATEGORY, the categories are PAPER (should be useable in nice craft or mail), STICKY (something new and clean with adhesive), and PERSONAL (something meaningful to yourself that will be special to receive).

You should familiarise yourself with your partner's profile and gear this toward their likes, avoiding anything they don't like.

If you like, you can decorate the envelope to match the postcard.

Hello. Can you provide a link to samples of the pocket postcard? Are these mailed naked?

Yay, my postcard pocket is ready -- thanks for the idea! Now I only need to fill it with required items but I'll wait for my partner's likes :-)

@DeAnnaVarela it says you can decorate the envelope to match the pc if you like, so not sending naked. It may be better to DM @feelthesoil for an answer to your question?

That's @FeetInTheSoil not feel LOL

@DEANNAVARELA no they are not sent naked because there is no room for an address once the 'address side' of the postcard is covered by the pockets and goodies. I will look for a tutorial link that you can use.

Here is an example tutorial from my favourite youtuber Vivian paper letter blog https://youtu.be/ifSvMMzjIbk

I suppose you could technically mail it naked if you incorporate the address into the postcard design and seal the pockets very well like small envelopes, but at that point it's more like an elaborate decorated envelope than a loaded PC

Because this is an international swap during a global crisis, I will not angel until NOVEMBER 2020, as there are air mail delays of up to 5 months in some parts of the world. Please do not rate your partner a 1 until OCTOBER unless they have not been online since before partners were assigned (aka they disappeared).
