I was inspired to create this swap when i read "13 little blue envelopes" by Maureen Johnson whilst on holiday a few weeks back (yea ok its a young teens book and im almost 24 but im just not ready to grow up yet!), you can find the book at http://www.amazon.co.uk/Little-Blue-Envelopes-Maureen-Johnson/dp/0060541431 should you be interested in my inspiration!
Basically; what I want you to do is send between 10 and 15 little envelopes (they dont actually have to be blue) INSIDE of a bigger envelope (so you're only sending ONE package to your partner). Inside each little envie i want you to set your partner a task and tell them why you choose that task.
Now i dont want them to be as huge as in the book, no sending your partner on a plane to London with no money or telling them to move in to a strangers spare room, etc. but something along the lines of "go to your local library, pick up the 1st book you see and read it cover to cover" or "volunteer for a day at your local animal rescue centre" but please make sure each task is unique, achievable, fun and interesting.
Each little envie should me numbered and you can only open the next one in sequence after you have completed the previous task.
Once you have completed all your tasks (or after each one if you wish) send an email to the person who send you the tasks telling them how you got on, and include some fotos taken during the task.
You can get creative with the package, make it pretty, paint, illustrate the letters and envies, etc. remember to number each envie in the order you want them opened and tell your partner why you chose each task.
