Description:

Who doesn't love seeing a beautiful piece of mail in the mailbox! You don't have to be an artist for this one, beginners are totally fine.

  1. Decorate your Envelope in a way you think your partner will like. use at least three different mediums eg. paper, washi, stickers, fabric, ribbon, rubber stamps, labels, pens, paints, etc.

  2. Include a note with a nice message or quote.

It's not really happy mail as there is no expectation to include a flat surprise. I created this swap for beginner decorators like myself
and others who would love to see others get creative.

Newbies are ok, please have a well filled out profile, hopefully with a little about your likes and dislikes, no unexplained 1s or recent issues. 4.97 rating and above. Please be in touch if your partner does not send to you.

Am I too late to join? Just new and would love to participate. :)

You've always got all day on the last day to sign up - after that it depends on how fast the host assigns, but not too late!

Sorry one more question. Is is the envelope that we actually are mailing that is decorated or do we put the decorated envelope inside another to mail?

Generally you would mail the envelope as the envelope. It's about getting that pretty mail in the mailbox. So try not to have any extra puffy or sticking-out bits! :) If you're truly worried you can put it inside an envelope, however i think most people would rather see it when they receive it.
