I did one of these wayyyy back in the day and it was probably the most fun swap I've done!!    Basically, you make a book from decorated envelopes with covers, and then fill the envelopes with fun stuff and trinkets and craft supplies. Here are a couple links:

Please let me know if you would be interested in this, and maybe I will host it shortly after the holidays??  We could base it on partner's favorite themes!

That sounds like a lot of fun!  I've never made an envelope book before but have always been keen to try!

Sounds kind of interesting. How do you put the envelopes together? Use rings or what. I looked at the links but didn't see how they did it. If I know how to make them, I'll look it up online. I would be interested. Cheesy

How do you put the envelopes together?

You could just like the brim of one envelope and attached to the front of another. They use glue on the site here:
