Extra postage mini envies
I thought that this was a neat idea. For swaps, it's not unusual for a hostess to ask that swappers enclose an extra stamp or two, along with a SASE, for the return trip. I'd been putting mine inside a tiny ziploc baggie. The theme of this swap was to come up with a small envelope of some sort to use for those extra stamps--needless to say, something prettier than a plain plastic baggie. Here's what I came up with.

The patterned paper is by We R Memory Keepers. I used Heidi Swapp alpha stamps for the text and an Ellison die cut for the stamp layer. This was just a 3 inch square piece of paper, folded into an envelope shape. Quick and easy and much more fun than boring old plastic bags!
