This is an international swap and the size requirement for the envelope is A5 (US equivalent is about A9 Diplomat size). This can be any type of envelope, as long as it is this size.
I just Googled it too and it looks like it's the one that measures 5 3/4 in x 8 3/4 in, so that'd fit an 8 1/2" x 11" sheet folded the hamburger way. Of course, we'll be filling them with a lot more than that!

LOL!  What is the "hamburger" way to fold a piece of paper?


When it's folded top to bottom, so the short sides are together. It looks more like a hamburger bun this way than when it's folded long side to long side. It looks more like a hot dog bun then. Smiley

That is too funny!  We were taught this weird thing called "horizontal" and "vertical", and also "long" and "short"...must be that old-school learning  Tongue

I never heard of hamburger way vs. hot dog way until I was in high school I think. Working with kids it made more sense to say long and short sides or hamburger and hotdog than horizontal or vertical not because they couldn't learn the terms, but because those depend on which way the paper was being looked at at the time. And if the folds end up creating a lot of angles, like with origami, it can take a while to explain which long and short sides you mean if you aren't demonstrating every step.

Sorry for the off-topic chatter! Um, something swap-related...Er, I'm stoked for this swap! Really! I'm not just saying that so I don't get in trouble. Smiley

Glad to see we are all keeping up with the communication as requested  Grin

I remember the last stuffed envelope swap I did on Flickr, we were all told to make sure our envies were covered front and back with packing tape to avoid ripping or tears.   Just thought I'd pass that along and see if you all thought that was a good idea too?
