I'm new to this and have a few questions for clarification: It is stated above that the envelope should not require 1 or 2 stamps - do you mean it should not require more than that? Is a regular envelope OK with maximum 2 stamps? What is a washi sample and how do you give it? I have washi tape but what do I do to send some? Thanks in advance - sounds fun.

@January yes, I corrected the wording on the stamps. Regular envelope is ok. To give a washi sample, you need at least 18" of it. Some people wrap it on a playing card. I wrap mine on a regular cardstock that has regular clear tape wrap. That way the washi tape doesn't stick permanently on the cardstock.

Thank you for clarifying. Very helpful information.
