For this swap you will decorate an envelope for your partner.

A question I keep getting ~ Do we have to put the envelope we decorated in another envelope and then send it off?


You will decorate the WHOLE outside front & back of an envelope.This means ~ ONLY dime size empty spots allowed!!

You will address and stamp the outside of that decorated envelope and send it off to your partner.

You will put something inside that decorated envelope for your partner ~ it could be anything you wish ~ a note, a card, some craft items, a coloring page, etc. Anything nice for your partner!

You may decorate your envelope any way your little heart desires! Please ~ if you have any questions please ask me! Thank you!

Any size envelope will do, just not too small!

These are so much fun and so easy to do! Please come join in!

I have had a few complaints about members sending envelope made out of pages or card stock with only a sticker or two or a little drawing! THIS IS NOT ACCEPTABLE!! If you use a calendar page or card stock to make an envelope that envelope better be fully covered. People put a lot of time and effort into these envelope and deserve to get one with the same effort! Thank you!

Hello... I need further clarification...

For this swap...if I say...make an envelope out of a calendar page or other scrapbook paper that is patterned...are you saying that this envelope still has to be completely covered with other items and/or materials? Please advise...thanks...🤓

@koolkrafter Yes! This swap is for a decorated envelope. If you fold an envelope you will still need to cover the entire envelope with some kind of decoration. Whether you paint, draw or collage is up to you. But you can not just fold an envelope no matter how pretty the paper you use is. :)
