Im so happy this has been a successful swap! I love meeting new pals ^_^ Thanks to everyone who participated last time around.
Who doesn't love a hand written letter? For this swap you will send 1 self-mailing letter (that means NO envelope is involved) to 3 partners introducing yourself. I found a website called Letterfu.com and they have designs and instructions on how to print out a template to mail. Im sure you can find more sites that have cool designs, if you would like to share it below in a comment, im sure everyone will appreciate it :) This is a really neat swap and the best part, its only one stamp and because of that, this swap will be open to International swappers as well (please note::for International partners its one .98 cent stamp)
This will be a newbie friendly swap :) Hope you guys join and if you have any questions or input, please feel free to contact me :)
Here are the instructions from the website and the link: http://www.letterfu.com/index.php
Step One: Print a Design onto a sheet of A4 or Letter paper from letterfu.com * Select a layout from the list of designs. * Take a blank sheet of A4 or Letter paper. When printing, MAKE SURE PAGE SCALING IS SET TO "NONE"! Otherwise, the fold won't work properly.**
Step Two: Write your letter * Write your letter on the unprinted side of the letter. Use a ballpoint pen if you have thin paper - it shows through the other side less. * Be creative! Doodle, and don't worry about keeping your writing in straight lines. Wild letters are much more fun to read.
Step Three: Address the letter * Write the address of the person you're sending the letter to on the letter before you fold it. * Write your own address on the reverse so that the letter can be sent back to you if it doesn't make it to your recipient.
Step Four: Fold the letter * Fold the letter up as per the instructions on the printed side. All of the folds are "mountain" folds (i.e. they all cover up the written side of the letter) with the exception of fold five, which is a "valley" fold.
Step Five: Stamp and Send! * Place a stamp across the diagonal edge on the front of the letter to help hold it closed. * Pop it in the mail.
Note:feel free to use any template you choose and if you have commercial self mailing letters, you can use those as well
