I recently got an antique atlas at a yard sale, and immediately thought, "I can't wait to make some envelopes from this!"

For this swap, you will make 2 envelopes for your partner from Atlas pages or any Road Map to use as they wish. The envelopes can be of any mailable size. You may use the type of map that folds up, but keep in mind, those creases are nearly impossible to get out.

It would be nice, but not mandatory, to include a notecard or bit of stationery that will fit in the envelope. Or you could include a label for your partner to affix themselves before mailing.

You can use an online or store-bought template (I bought mine from Paper Source) or just carefully tear apart any envelope you have, to use as a template.

I will check profiles and will angel this swap if necessary, but would rather everyone just not flake. Only join if you are committed to making TWO envelopes for your partner.

Start envelope-making now, so you can have a few for yourself, and perhaps one to mail the envelopes in to your partner.

Have FUN!

OoOoOo I'm so excited for this Lisa since you know, I have all of those maps from Borders that I... acquired... ;)

Yay, I'm so glad you joined. Maps are everywhere, just crying out to be re-purposed. ;)
