This looks fun! I have just a couple of questions though. What size envelope will we be sending? Also how many items in the package should be crafted? Thanks!

So excited about this swap!!!  I have so much stuff that I will probably never use.  I keep clippings from magazines and all my greeting cards that I think are useful because I can't stand to waste!

Am watching this swap, but need more details, like the send date and the envelope size.  Unless I'm missing it somewhere.

My pinterest:

I love swapping altered puzzle pieces and inchies.  PM me!

Oops, I thought I put the send put date on there: March 8th

For envelope size, 9x12 (manila envelope size), give or take. If it's a little bigger or smaller that's fine, just make sure it's close.

At least 2 items should be crafted, but they can both smalls, or if you want to  do one large (like a stamp) that's fine too.

Sound good to everyone?
