    PIF: PLAIN ENVIES ARE OVERRATED: A BLIND PIF FOR ALTERED ENVIES

    it seems like the other envie thread kinda stopped, so sad but heres another to get things rolling again

    some basics that may help

    what is an altered envie?
    An altered envelope is a plain envelope that you can buy or make and then decorate to your hearts desire and then mail.

    Altered envies can be sent through the mail(this term is also called naked) or inside an envelope. How the envelope is sent will up to the recipient.

    what is a PIF?
    PIF is short for Pass It Forward, this a thread where i would offer an envie and you would then claim my envie while offering one for someone else to claim

    a few rules
    JUST TO ENSURE THAT EVERYONE RECEIVES A FAIR TRADE...

    1. send your best work(we may not all be on the same skill level but we can all give our best)
    2. any LEGAL size is fine, although i would suggest a standard envie(6 1/2" x 3 1/2") as they are relatively cheap to mail and fit nicely in a business envie(4 1/8 x 9 1/2).
    3. to any one who is using glue, please no glue sticks, envelopes get shoved around alot so we need something that will make through the madness, im told craftsbond and tacky glue works well(but you get the point just make sure it sticks )
    4. all collage pieces should be securely attatched
    5. no heavy or raised embellishments as these do go through machines
    6. since this is envie mail art the envie should be SEALED to help prevent unwanted damage
    7. if the artist who claims your envie would like it to be mailed in a larger envie please dont fold it to make it fit


    envelopes
    to help with those of you picking envies to alter, mail or make heres the post office link to help figure how much it would cost
    https://www.usps.com/ship/first-class.htm
    i do know that there is an extra charge for square envies

    now that all the boring stuff is out the way lets have some fun altering some envies

    ill start who would like an altered envie from me?
