Description:

This is a US only swap and will not be cheap postage, lol - I expect this swap to mail for at least $10 and cost you at least $25!

1 partner, 25 seasonal small, filled envelopes, numbered 1-25 and sent with one holiday card to your partner. This is a full advent calendar, with a filled envelope for each day of December!

Requirements:

  • Make, buy, or decorate 25 small envelopes (minimum is atc size, NO maximum size (I had a bunch go over:) and they can be different sizes and shapes

  • Envelopes must be holiday/christmas themed - wrapping paper or plain envelopes you have decorated enough that they will look festive if displayed. Please use flat embellishments only - stickers, washi, HD/HP, collage.

  • Number them from 1- 25

  • Fill each one with a flat or mostly flat treat that your partner will be delighted to open every day in December, ending on Christmas Day. Fillers do not need to be holiday themed

  • Put something especially nice in envelope 25:)

  • Securely pack them in a box or large bubble envie and mail via USPS with tracking. Ideally this will fit in a small flat rate priority mail box.

  • Send the tracking number to your partner - this will mail for a parcel and cost at least $10 to mail.

  • Since the items are not necessarily profile based, please start making your envelopes as soon as you sign up!!

The goodies do not have to be holiday themed, but they do need to be nice things such as:

  • stickers
  • atc or coin backs
  • washi tape samples
  • ephemera/die cuts/tags
  • ribbons/twine
  • swap cards/address labels
  • unexpired tea or hot cocoa bags
  • unexpired candy
  • postcards / notecards/recipe cards
  • kawaii memo sheets or other cute post its
  • handmade envies
  • sheet face masks/nail files
  • a penpal letter from you
  • an atc or mini work of art (like a zine) made by you

You can repeat items as long as they are not identical and no more than 2 days of the same item!

While this is a senders choice swap, please look at partners profile for more ideas and more importantly, things they don't care to receive. Gifts can be handmade or store bought, get creative!

If you are on Instagram, post a pic with the hashtag #cpgswap!

Note the short window to sign up!!

EDIT: If anyone has the poor taste to flake, I will angel this swap once a 1 is rated and I have removed them from the group. The angel RAK will be for 12 Days of Xmas but each envie will be twice as nice:)
