For this swap, we will decorate an envelope with either a St. Patrick's Day theme or a "Lucky" theme.

It is 1 envie for 1 partner.

This swap is open to everyone in the group, but flakers will be banned.


  • Please decorate the front of the envie. (Decorating the back is optional.) Any mediums welcome, except for stickers only.

  • Inside the envie, please include a note. (It can be on a note card, greeting card, flat card, postcard... Any sort of store-bought card is okay.)

  • Write about something you're feeling thankful/lucky about. Or tell your partner what's the first thing you would do if you found a leprechaun's pot of gold. :)

  • Send the decorated envie through the mail. Do not put the decorated envelope inside of a plain envelope. This swap is International -- be sure to use the correct amount of postage!

Please feel free to PM me with questions.

If you're new to mail art and decorated envelopes, there are many samples on Flickr.

I have pictures of envies I've done in a set: My Swap Bot Mail Art set. It shows a variety of levels of decoration from simple to elaborate.

There is also a sample of what would not be appropriate for this swap. The cupcake envie shown below (bottom right) is stickers only and would not meet this swap's requirements.

Hello Everyone. I am not sure what I am doing but I would like to give it a try. I hope I don't disapoint anyone. Does it matter what size of envie?

Cristin91 02/19/2013 #

Hi, @mrscuddleton any size envelope, as long as it's big enough to go through the US mail. They won't take envelopes smaller than 3.5 x 5 inches.
