Details of swap:
Many mixed-media artists out there have fun with Happy Mail swaps so lets bring one to Craftster! For this swap, youll beautifully decorate an envelope (something around a 6x9ish) in the way of your choice paint it, mix media it up, add fabric, whatever inspires you. (Remember, whatever you do, you need to leave white spots or labels for your addresses!) Then, youll include FIVE small but handmade (or hand altered) embellishments or crafting doo-dads for your partner to enjoy.

This is a low-pressure swap, with the only requirement being that you must send along five hand-made or hand-altered goodies, rather than store-bought. (Let's keep this inexpensive!)

What are crafting doo-dads, you ask? Here are some ideas!
Handmade  stickers, cards, altered tags, crafty ephemera, glue stencils, inchies, altered paperclips, ATCs, hand-cut stencils, paper feathers, paper flowers, altered buttons, etc. (And many other ideas not even mentioned here! Use your imagination, as long as someone can craft with it and you made it.)

Here are a few links for inspiration!

Just wanted to add one thing -- the spirit of this swap should be to enjoy the creativity/artwork of your partner and not to get too bogged down in favorite themes, favorite colors, etc. I have added that stuff on the swap questionnaire in case you would like to create your work in that way, but I hope that y'all will just be up for whatever coolness your partner creates!
