Description:

Have you have built an unexpected stash of crafty bobs and bits and papers? For this swap you will fill an envelope with flat items in good to new condition. Seal the envelope BEFORE you receive your partner's info. Write the swap name and your user name on the envelope. When you get your partner's info, add their address to the envelope and send it away. Easy!

There is no limit to the envelope size or what's inside. "Filled" means at least several items: notecards, postcards, stamps, paperclips, bookmarks, washi samples, sticky note pads, confetti packs, ribbon, die cuts, erasers, seed packets, ephemera, stickers, labels etc.

Do not send junk, trash, unusable scraps. Play nice, please.

This is a blind swap--don't rate down if you don't like what you receive. Send out what you'd like to receive and I think good craft karma will come your way. :)

Here's the BONUS: I will be sending out extra blind envelopes to random participants. I'm in the process of packing to move and don't want to take these crafty bits with me, so I want to share them. The number of envelopes will increase as the number of sign ups increase. I'll start sending them as ratings come in. The more people, all the better as I know my stash will go to good new homes.

As always, I reserve the right to ban without warning and will check profiles in advance. Newbies welcome with detailed profiles.

Update: I’ve made 22 numbered bonus envelopes so far. More to come!

Update 2: 27 bonus envelopes made so far!

Update 3: 31 bonus envelopes made and WOW due to the great response, I’m going to make more!

Hi there! This sounds like a lot of fun:). I'm a newbie and cannot join the swap. Can I do anything to change that? Because I see that newbies are allowed to join.

lawchick 08/ 5/2019 #

@zo nina Give it another try. :) Your profile looks great!

Ohnomissy 08/ 5/2019 #

hello! It says stash of papers and such, does this mean like scraps of paper that can be used or is that not allowed? I’d love to join in!

lawchick 08/ 6/2019 #

@ohnomissy I suppose you can include some useable scraps, but look to my list in the description for ideas of items to include. The envelopes that earn hearts will have variety and fun. No one would be happy to get an envelope full of scraps. We wanna make our partners happy. :)

Ohnomissy 08/ 6/2019 #

Of course! Thank you so much for the response :)

hannahelyce 08/ 9/2019 #

Hi I just joined and am new to this. Not sure what the process is like but I read the description. Feel free to read my bio! Nice to meet you all!

hannahelyce 08/ 9/2019 #

So when do we find out who we're sending the letter to?

lawchick 08/11/2019 #
