Date items must be sent by:January 21, 2012
Number of swap partners:2

[Note, I've edited the swap - see italicized wording under bullet item #4.]

In this swap, to each of your 2 partners, you will write and send a fun mini letter in a mini handmade envelope. You will also include a mini surprise.

By mini, I mean roughly the size of an artist trading card (ATC): 2.5" x 3.5" (6.4 cm x 8.9 cm). It could be a little bigger and folded to still fit into the mini envelope. If you need a mini envelope template, click here: ATC Envie

Other important details:

  • If you choose to use plain paper, please decorate your mini letter and mini envelope. (You could also use colorful, decorative paper for both your letter and envelope.)
  • Please write on the front and back of your letter. If you want to fit a lot, you'll have to write small (smile). As an option, you could type your letter.
  • The mini surprise must be no larger than the mini envelope.
  • Please seal your letter in the mini envelope and put this into a larger envelope for mailing. Edited - The mailing envelope will need to meet the minimum size required by the postal service, which in the USA is 5" long x 3 1/2" high. (This mailing envelope can be store-bought or handmade, but if it's plain, you must decorate it - don't just add one rubber stamp or sticker and call it done – decorate with "wild abandon!" (Again, you could use colorful, decorative paper to make it.)
  • Have fun – make it something you would be happy to receive!
  • Newbies are welcome with a well filled out profile; everyone else, you must have a 4.9 rating with no 1s or 3s in the past three months without a good explanation.
  • I would appreciate it if no one would flake - it’s no fun to send mail and not receive anything back.

Sounds like fun but I'd be concerned with it getting lost in the post! Just as the postoffice has MAXIMUM limits, they also have mini limits ~ could/should it be posted in a larger envelope?

@kerrydwynn please see bullet item 4 above. You will put your mini envelope into a larger envelope for mailing. This larger envelope needs to meet the postal service minimum limit, which for the USA is 5" long x 3 1/2" high.

My post office lady said she would be afraid it would get lost too,she likes all the envies I send out and she suggested I put the small ones in larger ones.
