Send two partners each an envelope of ephemera. One definition of ephemera is, "a class of collectable items not originally intended to last for more than a short time, such as tickets, posters, postcards, or labels." It's not hard to do well if you try to be weird with your ephemera.

So--not notecards, but dance cards. Not memo sheets, but grocery lists. I expand the definition to include bits of paper that are interesting and random like music sheets, pages from old books, advertising that is old or not in your native language, neat and interesting wrappers, pretty designs, etc.

All welcome with reasonably good ratings and profiles.

Would the envelope be a business sized envelope, or any sized envelope?

I had the same question. Is this for a one stamp business envelope? I think I could send alot of cool stuff in that size if that is what you are thinking.

A one-stamp business envelope is fine, as is a greeting card sized envelope or a larger one.

by your definition above, I perceive only paper: ephemera, is that correct?

For some reason when I click on my swap partners nothing happens. Any ideas?

User2701, the tab probably opened up in the background, not at the foreground. Check your toolbar at the bottom if you're using Windows for an "extra" window open.
