It's baaaccck the Anything in an Envelope Exchange is where you get on of the Priority Rate flat rate envelopes from the post office and add in as much as you can to fill it up and send it off to your DIS pal.
To join in, send me the following info.
If you sign up, please follow through. Be sure to send by the send by date, and also check in to see if your pal has recieved their exchange.
This exchange is open to all ages-kids and adults and we will have a mix of names.

Minimum of $5.00-but just stuff that envelope as much as you can.
*Send by-Friday-August 11.


Name-
Address-
Email Address-
Number of Exchanges-
For child participants-Gender, age, and parents name-
*What are some items that you would wouldn't mind seeing in your envelope?
*Do you collect anything or do you have any hobbies?


***Suggestion-If you are participating in this exchange, get your envelopes and have it ready so that when you get your pals info. all you have to do is shop and send it off.


***A participant had asked if a flat rate box is also fine. Sure, it will cost more, but if you have items that you would like to send to your pal that can't fit in a flat rate envelope, feel free to go along with the box. Just remember to stick a note in with your exchange and do let them know that you are sending them their "Envelope Exchange" so that they don't get confussed.

You can get the envelopes that the post office, and they say Priority Mail Flat Rate Envelope. So sending them within the states would cost $4.05 no matter what the weight is.
I have done several of the envelope exchanges in the past, and have put in all kinds of things.
Here are some ideas of things that I or other exchangers have put it in-
Tarts, stationary, edible items, soaps, magnets, keychains, stickers, pins, dolls, juice packets, gum/candy, earrings, pens, pencils, glow in the dark necklaces, socks, ornaments, bubbles, puzzle books, notepads, dvds, cassette tapes, ......
You could add in all kinds of things into these envelopes, just be sure that they don't open when you mail them-some people have said that when they bring their envelopes to be sent out and if they seal it with tape, that their post office would charge them more, but I have never had that happen to me, so you might want to check with your post office. I do like to secure my envelopes cause you never know how it will be handled during transit and I don't want anything falling out.
This is how the envelope looks like-

And you can get it free at your post office.

Well the thing with the flat rate envelopes now is that they don't want the envelopes to be bulky, we had this issue with the swaps :confused3 I used the manila envelopes in the past and I liked them b/c we can put more stuff in, but yes the shipping price can be more. :confused3

I have a Canadian DISer that would like to participate.
The Priority Mail envelopes are only good within the U.S., so she would be using the 9x12 envelope that is approx. the same size as the flat rate envelopes to send her exchange in.

Is there any two DISers that would-
*One like to recieve an exchange from Canada
*And another DISer that would be willing to send to Canada.

If so, please pm me. :thumbsup2
