I'm borrowing this swap from @stephiedee you can see one of the previous swaps here... http://www.swap-bot.com/swap/show/107602

The above picture is by @stephiedee also :D

For this swap, you will take 3 manila file folder (recycled or new) and turn it into mail art folders (senders choice).

Decorate the front and backside of the folder using collage/mixed-media techniques. A note telling your partner what went in to creating your mail art envelope would be nice, too. mail them in a separate mail art envie!

I would like us to keep the folder the original size (A4 is fine for those outside the US), if this is an issue please let me know and we can change it.

I trust this group will have no flakers. :D

Thanks for the far away deadline! :)

cool :) can you give an approx. size for the file folder you're refering to as it would be different in EU countries. here our 'regular' file folder would be A4 size, a little smaller than US letter size. if that's also cool, i'm game :)

Tera, let me get this straight: unlike in Stephie's swap, where the file folder was supposed to be glued or taped shut, this time we leave it open, with stuff inside....but taped up all round?

FarStarr 11/12/2012 #

I would love to be able to still use it as a folder after slicing open the tape.

Kattera22 11/13/2012 #

@MissThundercat A4 size is fine :), @fiwebster correct I'd prefer it taped around the edges so it can actually be used as a file folder still ... would everyone prefer it be empty?

@FarStarr that's what I was thinking, I'm actually trying to organize a craft space all over the house into a craft room, and though these would be perfect for organization!

Why, Oh why...did no one love this swap??? If it's just us, Tera, do you want to make a couple?

Sounds good to me!
