Loaded Envelope Flip

Inspired by YT happycrafter , Lisa Goss

Lisa gave me permission to host this swap. Our swap has a MAE twist to it. We are flipping HANDMADE ENVELOPES instead of tag pockets.

Please click this LINK to view the YouTube video for a visual explanation. Remember we are using ENVELOPES not tag pockets.

For this swap you will have one (1) partner and create five (5) Envelopes with required items inside and four (4) additional goodies.

Theme/color/style is sender's choice, so you can get started.

Minimum Envelope size is 3 x 3 inches, there is No Maximum Envelope size.

You may use different sized envelopes to flip or different envelope styles. No store bought envelopes.

You must have a hole in EACH ENVELOPE or a way to attach it and flip. Use hole enforcers or eyelets to help if using holes. You don't want your envelope to rip while it flips. Use a binder ring, or jute/twine for it to flip.


Envelope Flip TUTORIAL

Each Envelope will have a required item to be included inside. You must decorate the front of the Envelope with the item you chose to put inside of the envelope. You do not have to decorate the back of the envelope. Sealing the envelope is optional.

A goodie must be placed either before or after four of the ENVELOPES. So a total of Four (4) additional goodies. Goodies can be handmade or store bought.
