Let's get creative :)

For this swap you'll decorate an envelope entirely of washi tape. It's ok if there's the odd bit of envelope poking through. Let's say it has to be 90% washi tape!

Use at least 3 different washi tapes to do this.

Please see the link to papered thoughts blog which shows what I mean! Her amazing work inspired this swap!


Inside the envelope please write your partner a short letter (ie more than 'happy swapping') that draws on something they've said in the profile. Tell your partner a bit about yourself, your dog, your job- WHATEVER. It doesn't matter what you talk about, but write something! :)

Also include 3 washi samples of at least 12 inches in length. Please put these on something like a playing card so it won't stick OR give lots extra to make up for the bits that get lost on the card you stuck it to.

*** Please rate a 5 if *** - you get an envelope (any size) with approx 90% coverage with washi tapes of at least 3 varieties. - there's a short letter/note inside that shows your partner read your profile. - there's 3 washi samples of at least 12 inches of usable length. - it's sent on time.

Hearts are up to you, but let's be kind and encouraging :) This is sender's choice and is not profile dependent. Obviously try to make it something your partner will like, but it's senders choice.

I will angel if anyone is flaked on, and reserve the right to ban dodgy swappers for the safety of everyone. Please don't take personal offence. No newbies, I'm sorry! Please have done at least 5 type 3 swaps.

Any questions, please ask. Or if you need anything clarified!

Have fun!

Thanks for adding the link. I don't know how to make it be something I can click on! I contacted her to double check it's ok to have her photo and blog link here but she's not answered yet. It it's not ok I'll switch the photo to one of my own envelopes. But hers are just so much more inspiring lol!

@vedalovelo Here're some tips on Markdown Syntax, which is used on this site for clicky links and such. :)

Do we use the washi envelope to mail samples and letter or put it in a plain envelope to mail?

vedalovelo 04/14/2015 #

Send the washi envelope, the fun is getting the pretty mail :) @fabmama72
