Though I was able to fit a lot of stuff into one envelope, I doubt it was exactly 1 oz.  My postage scale may be digital, but it's also a pathological liar, so I put an extra stamp on just to be on the safe side Smiley  Also, I used to load aircraft for a living, so fitting a lot of things into small spaces AND having to make sure they didn't weigh more than allowed was the difference between the plane flying and er, well, not flying.

I'm glad you liked everything zombiekilla...and I hope your car doesn't need anything major to get it up and running!

I received from peihan17 and it is chock full of papery goodness:




I love the foreign language stuff - great for inchies and rubber stamping. The photo does not show (sorry!) a small piece of fabric just right for a dotee or two!

Oh, and I love the 5,000,000 dollar bill.....from HELL! Thanks again!

Yeah, yeah, yeah - I'm still dial-up so it takes me a while to get all of my ducks in a row. Soon I'll join the 21st century and get digital internet.

Wow, you folks jammed a bunch in those envelopes! I didn't fit as much in, and I think I just realized why... I had a couple of "thick" items and I wanted them to stay in place in the envelope (and not be all bunched up), so I attached them (using removable adhesive dots) to a piece of the cover of a catalog. But, I did pick a cover that could be used as ephemera afterwards Wink

How the heck did you get Pop Rocks in there? I am really amazed. I made my partner something that is bulky like pop rocks & I had no idea how to get it in there. The item's I made are 1oz but the envie is going to be bulky. How am I going to get past that? Any idea's? I am open to suggestions. I don't mind putting an extra stamp on because I usually do but I don't want to get my hand slapped by our organizer, lol. 

Oh, I love everything so far in the gallery.

I received an awesome envelope of stuff from audio-astrophysics; I fear that my envelopes are ghostly pale in comparison!

First, a bunch of cool papers (definitely using some of these in the altered puzzle-along), some play money, small playing cards and some yarn.



And... some fabulous inchies for my collection! I love them!



Thanks so much, audio!
