I love finding colorful mail in my box, and even better if it has beautiful handwriting on it. I can't do the lovely calligraphy, but I can sling paint and slap on washi tape with the best of them!

For this swap, you will decorate an envelope or create one yourself (file folder? Scrapbook paper? Calendar page?) with artistic elements such as paint, gelli-print, markers, ink, stamps, stickers, washi tape, collage elements, etc. Make the mail carrier say, "Wow!" Inside, put a note for your partner with your name, username and the swap title so they can rate you. Also add a flat surprise like washi tape samples, sticker sheet, or other thing your partner might like based on their profile.

Be sure your mail art is mailable, and everything is stuck down well. If the art is really wild, you might want to put the send address on a label. Mail on time, rate promptly.
