Remember your grade school Valentine's Day Party? Putting your Valentine box out on your desk, walking around to each classmate's desk to deposit their little envelopes. And the best part, opening up your box and finding all those little love notes!

Purchase a box of those classroom valentine's, found at nearly every supermarket and dollar store. Pick your favorite cartoon or design, just like you did when you were a kid.

Your "class" will consist of yourself and 10 other "students". You'll send one valentine to each "classmate", don't forget to sign each one so they know who it's from!

Extras: For a special Valentine's Day treat, send those cards that come with a candy surprise! Or maybe a sheet of stickers. (Be sure your envelopes have enough postage on them to cover the extras.)

If your valentines come with envelopes, you can NOT mail them in the small envelopes they come with. Just put each one in a larger envelope, with or without its small envelope.

Swappers with 4.9 rating and above and newbies with completely filled out profile welcome. No one with no-sends (1 ratings) allowed.

This is the fifth year I have hosted this swap and every year it is so much fun! Please send your cards, don't let your classmates down!

Remember in the US the smallest size envelope that can be mailed is 3 1/2" by 5 1/2". Tiny valentine's will need to be placed in a larger envelope than the ones usually provided.

Can we request somebody else's name on the card/envelope? 💌As if we were receiving for a child? I want to join the swap if the cards sent to me can have my daughter's name on them.

what if our valentines comes with tattoos or a sticker? can we send whatever comes with our valentines?

JennaZ 01/12/2016 #

@MargotBond You can request that here in the comments BUT not everyone will read so I wouldn't expect all of your "classmates" to comply

@bluecrayons Yes, by all means. As it states in the description, for a special treat, send the ones that come with candy, or stickers, etc.

I am SO INN on this one LOL. Sounds like so much fun!! I have bunches of kids Vday cards BUT I will go out and get some more. So, I will mail 10 kids vday cards, so that means I will get 10 back, and get 10 ratings?

JennaZ 01/18/2016 #

@CraftsyMommaonaBUDGET Exactly, you'll get 10 back and get ten ratings (and you'll need to give rating to ten others). :)

I'm in Canada ... Am I not allowed to join this one :(?

Julez13 01/22/2016 #

I would like to start sending some out but haven't found any partners with address yet.. friend me.

CraftyMommaonaBUDGET 01/23/2016 #

Sorry I thought we were assigned partners. Julez13 I messaged you

CraftyMommaonaBUDGET 01/23/2016 #

Margotbond messge me info we can swap for kids if you like?

shirleyinCA 01/23/2016 #

If you want a child's name on the valentine envelopes, I suggest as soon as partners are assigned, check" Rate your partner" to see who will be sending to you. Message them and I am sure they will be happy to address to your child!

pkpeace 01/24/2016 #

I'm really looking forward to this... My first swap!! Just to clarify, we're assigned partners, correct?! Already decorating envelopes!!

Jennybee 01/24/2016 #

My son Lucas (same last name) helped me prepare mine. If possible please address to him! Thank you!!!!!!!

CraftyMommaonaBUDGET 01/24/2016 #

Where do I find 3 1/2" by 5 1/2 envelopes?

JennaZ 01/25/2016 #

@wonderlandgirl sorry, no, USA only

@Julez13 I think you're confused. Sign up for the swap and you will be assigned 10 partners to mail to

@pkpeace yes, you will be assigned partners after the sign-up date

@CraftyMommaonaBUDGET You don't HAVE to send in that size, but that it the smallest you can send. In other words, you can't mail in the tiny envelopes that some valentines come with. You can just mail them in regular sized envelopes. :)

CraftyMommaonaBUDGET 01/25/2016 #

Got my envies ready, hopefully they go out tomorrow but no later than wednesday

susand622 01/26/2016 #

Bought my cards today and will spend the next few days decorating envelopes! Very excited for this swap....I love getting mail and I remember how much I used to love getting valentines in school!!!

jenilynevette 01/26/2016 #

If anyone got me as a swap partner and wants the envelope addressed to someone else, please message me and let me know!

MissBrenda 01/26/2016 #

Who ever got me as a swap partner and would like the envelope addressed to someone else, please message me and let me know!

smadronia 01/28/2016 #

Anyone else notice their classroom valentines no longer come with envelopes?

JennaZ 01/29/2016 #

Yeah, these days most of them are fold-over (with stickers if you're lucky).

Gamora 01/29/2016 #

Hey y'all! So excited to send these out in the morning! ;)

mchesser12 01/30/2016 #

One of my partners lives in Canada. Isn't this USA only? @JennaZ please check messages. Thanks!

smadronia 01/31/2016 #

Your partner has a US sending address on their profile @mchesser12

This was my first swap and it was so much fun! lol! I'm pretty sure that my postman gave me the stink eye this morning as if to say "Why are you getting so much mail all of a sudden and is it going to continue???" Yes!! I AM addicted to swapping already!
