Okay Here’s my idea. Even though this is a make an Envelope Group, I would like to see if you’re interested in making tags.

I have done this on my other group swap and it turned out well and many of you may have already done that swap but here’s another.

Just make three any size tags out of sturdy backing . On the front of tag, a design or a cut out but nothing too three dimensional. (Bulky). Bulky always cost more postage. Reason being, you can use the back of a tag you get as a note to send with your other swaps. ,

Put your profile name small where you decorated (front) so as it can be used by the person to send on a swap but still made by you

The back of the tag then can be used like a note when she sends a note for swap and knows it was made by another who put her name on the front .Just a cute, Different way of swapping and/or collecting tad

The make a card side (MAE) of this! is that you will put those three tags you Made in a Hand made envelope that you have either gotten from another swap or will make it yourself.

You can use cut outs for magazines or stamping, or drawing something on it, whatever you desire for the front of the tag .The back remains a blank. Any questions?

It is just another way of sending to your swapper instead of using a piece of paper or note card with name of swap ad profile. Put name of swap on back of envelope.

3 tags to 1 swapper

If you have never done tags before you can check Google for examples, or Pinterest. They just have to be sturdy like on card stock etc

Ok, so 3 tags decorated in a h/m Envelope? 1 being used as a note to our partner?

Buy forever stamps before Jsnuary as they are going up 5 cents and outrageous if you ask me. So get them at 50 cents now for sending next year
