I just got back from the flea market where I bought six awesome calendars. I can't wait to make envies from them....

For this swap you will send your partner 3 handmade envelopes and an extra profile specific treat. The envies don't have to be the same size, but they must be a mailable size. They can be made from regular paper that has been embellished with rubber stamps or hand drawings; old calendars (my personal favorite), adverts; old posters, reinforced wrapping paper, anything you can think of! Make sure they are reinforced if the paper is not a good sturdy stock. Also, (this is not a requirement, but an idea) nested envies are fun, with one fitting inside the next and etc. Like when my Poppa gave my Mum keys to a new car and she had to open box after box until she got to the real present!

Don't forget to check out your partner's profile and send them something specific to them.

For a template, just disassemble any envie, trace it, cut it out, and fold it into an envie. It's a lot of fun to see how they turn out.

Newbies are welcome with a well-rounded profile. No recent "no-sends" without a pm explaining the situation. Don't Flake. Flaking is mean and bad Karma! Anyone who's profile looks hinkie, will be kicked to the curb. I will angel, if necessary; but I've faith I won't have to.

Rate a 5 if your partner has fulfilled the terms of fthe swap, not whether or not you like the envies. Make sure to communicate with your partner before leaving anything less than a 5, give them a chance to do right by you!

This is a USA only swap, but I've created an international one as well, check it out!

I've also created a group for lovers of the handmade envie...It's called Enchanted Envies; please consider joining!

I love these swaps! I've been making lots of wallpaper envelopes of late.So much fun! That's exactly what I do,too;open up a ready made envelope and trace around it on cardstock for my templates! Easy and cheap! :D

Just wondering if there is a specific dollar amount for the profile surprise?

There is no dollar amount, but remember to shoot for hearts!
