Details of swap:
(much love to the fab organizers of previous rounds - SonjaBoo, Smmarrt and LimerRiot Kiss)

For this swap, youll decorate an envelope (something around a 6"x9"ish) in the way of your choice paint it, mix-media it up, add fabric, whatever inspires you. (Psst...don't forget you need to leave white spots or labels for your addresses!)  
In the envelope, youll include five (5) small but handmade (or hand-altered) embellishments or crafting doo-dads for your partner to enjoy.
Extras are not necessary, but feel free to chat with your partner if you want to send more than the minimum requirement of five (5) small items.



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

Here are a few links for inspiration!

I'm so excited about this swap Cheesy   Glad you gals are up for it too! 
Even though I should really finish prepping for tomorrow's Easter tea, what I really want to do is sneak off and gather paper bits and bobs. 
Meanwhile, if you see any cool ideas for happy mail, please share them in this thread Smiley

Oooh, those are great! 
I've not had time to look through everything on your pinterest boards but I like what I saw so far! 
Followed! Thanks for sharing Smiley

Aside from the usual paper craft type embellishments, I've been thinking about strands of handspun art yarns and dyed bits.   
Oh...and fabric tape too!  So many possibilities Cheesy
