I love making envelopes from gelli prints, and I thought it might be fun to swap some! If you don't have a Gelli-plate, you can just use a brayer on a craft mat to spread your paint. It won't be the same, but will be acceptable for this swap.

Create three envelopes using gelli-prints. You can either print directly onto envelopes, make envelopes from sheets of gelli-print papers, or glue the prints on to another envelope....or any combination of the three! If the prints are dark or too busy, enclose a white mailing address label in case your partner wants to send it. (I've been known to hoard mine and put them in junk journals...😀) Do make them sturdy enough to mail, and if necessary use tape along the inside folds to reinforce them. Size should be 3.5" x 5.5" or larger.

Package securely, send on time and rate promptly.

If you have questions, please direct message me.

There is a YouTube video on alternative ways to monoprint without a gelliplate. https://youtu.be/sC193GfhOzM
