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. The 3 envelopes we make are the ones we stamp, address and send.

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! Buttons! 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! ♥

Do they have to be collaged like the examples on flikr or can you handraw, stamp and colour etc?

provadia 05/16/2011 #

The examples on flickr are the only ones submitted so far. They can be anything that you perceive as art. Anything is welcome and you aren't limited to anything:)

You show this as an electronic swap. Forget to change the type of swap?

@buggin48 - I've assigned partners now! You can see who you're sending to by clicking on "See the partners you send to" on the top right. Should be the second link.
