Mail art is so much fun to create and receive! Whether they are collaged, taped up, painted, doodled or anything.. they are better then plain envies anyday!

For this swap you will send out your pretty, pretty envies to 3 partners. Make them unique! Nothing too plain and if you plan on sticking a sticker and calling it done, this swap isn't for you.

Envelopes can be any size! Inside you can include something fun for your partners, but it's completely senders choice. You can even decorate huge bubble envelopes if you're super excited! (lol)

Try to use stamps on the envelopes as well. Barcodes tend to cover up your art and I know my post office people stick them anywhere they want. I also think stamps kind of make the envie special too. However, this isn't required.

Some ideas for what to put inside:

  • Inspirational quotes!
  • Street art!
  • Stickers!
  • Photos!
  • Postcards!
  • Funny local ads!
  • Tea!
  • Or anything you'd like to share!

This swap is International and although it shouldn't be much to send out, please keep that in mind before joining, along with the time to make your envies.


I will angel if I have to and I'm giving some time to make them!

Have fun! ♥

So who do I send mine to?

provadia 04/12/2011 #

@thepirateninja - Partners aren't assigned yet, there is still a few days till April 18 & on April 19, you will have your partners assigned and you will see a button that says "See the partners you send to".

You'll see, it's very easy:)
