There aren't any 12" x12" envelopes, are there? It seems a shame to cut up some lovely scrapbook paper and I don't want to use a box! Any ideas?

Use a mail tube? Roll it up and send it that way?

i've been having some concerns about envelope size and stability myself...
tube is a good idea, but there may be extra charges at the PO for it because its an usual shape for the mail sorting machines.

how much flexibility will we get for the packaging, Staar84?

Since the concerns have been about not cutting 12 x 12 paper and stability, you can use whatever you need to to send. My concern was that someone would get a lot less then they sent if they were using a different size envelope than their partner. So if you think it would fit in a 9x12 envelope thickness-wise, it's fine.

It's really late, does that make sense?  Undecided

Also: We have a sender, so we have a gallery! http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=372828.0 (There's a link on the front page, too)

I found a really big envelope yesterday at Stuff-Mart. I think it's 14.5" x 19". I'm going to ask the PO if it would travel well.

YAY partners!  I'm done...seriously.
I'm a quicky crafter...

All I have to do is wait til the snow clears the doorway so I can get to the post office!  Cheesy
Can't wait to see if she enjoys what I send her!

Wow!  I am on vacation, will be back Monday night. Then I will get my things together and will probably send at the end of the week.

I just finished crafting and will be ready to mail on Wed (payday).  I think I am going to use a flat rate envelope as it's kind of heavy.
