This swap was for an ‘Emergency kit for your penpals!’ to include:
- 2 different letter sets : 2 sheets of each kind + matching envelope
- 5 envelopes
-2 store bought
– 2 hand made – sender choice
– 1 airmail
- 5 airmail stickers
- 5 address labels
For a swapper in the Netherlands who likes: Japan, Paris, flowers, birds and purple. The home-made envelopes are from old calender pages.
Response: “Unfortunately the whole envelop was torn when I found it in my mailbox. But… I am sure nothing was lost. I love everything you sent me! Thank you very much!!!”
-Hopefully nothing was lost. I don’t think I’ve had an envelope reported damaged before, maybe I should find some tougher ones or layer up my envelopes… I received a kit back from this swapper too and she used an envelope inside an envelope.
And for a swapper in Germany who likes: travel, turquoise, fuchsia, metallic grey and nothing cartoony. The handmade envelopes were created from scrapbooking paper.
Response: “Thank you so much for all these nice items, I love everything ! Sure, I will use them for my penpals in Japan or in the US.”
From the Netherlands:
So many pretty things! Especially the old map envelope and the mail pigeon design. I have no idea who’s on that envelope but she’s presumably someone famous.
Another envelope of lovely things! I recognise a few bits from UK shops but nothing I have, and it’s all very fun. Look at that spy envelope!
I love how this parcel was sent 🙂 It’s a clear plastic envelope with labels stuck on. I’ve been thinking of getting some see through envelopes for a while, I like seeing the insides from the outside. I may do some fancy envelope shopping soon…
Definitely a successful swap!
