Smile Complete- ENVELOPE SWAP for Ronald McDonald House Cards

Over the years, I've received many cards for my Ronald McDonald House Project from people on this website and I'm happy to say that we have sent almost 17,000 cards to houses around the country!

Here's the deal:


I've received quite a few odd sized cards that I've not had time to make envelopes for these cards or found envelopes for these cards! I would love to swap envelopes of another size for the ones that I need, so I can finally send these cards to one of the Ronald McDonald Houses we serve.


Here's what I have to swap:


A2- birch - 4 3/8 x 5 3/4 - (for a regular - 1/4 page sized card)


A2 - kraft - 4 3/8 x 5 3/4 - (for a regular - 1/4 page sized card)


A2 - white - 4 3/8 x 5 3/4 - (for a regular - 1/4 page sized card)


A8 - white - 5 1/2 x 5 3/4 (Announcement)


A9 - white confetti - 5 3/4 x 8 3/4 (for a 1/2 page sized card)


A9 - light pink - 5 3/4 x 8 3/4 (for a 1/2 page sized card)


A9 - light blue - 5 3/4 x 8 3/4 (for a 1/2 page sized card)


A9 - light green - 5 3/4 x 8 3/4 (for a 1/2 page sized card)


A9 - gold - - 5 3/4 x 8 3/4 (for a 1/2 page sized card)




Here's what I need:


26 envelopes - 4 1/2 x 4 1/2

-3 = Lori (mybugandi)
23

13 envelopes - 4 x 4
-3 =Lori (mybugandi)
10
-8 = ValerieO
2

4 envelopes - 3 1/4 x 4 1/2
-3 =Lori (mybugandi)
1


1 envelope - 3 1/2 x 4 1/2 complete
-3 =Lori (mybugandi)


3 envelopes - 3 1/2 x 6 1/4 complete
-3 =Lori (mybugandi)
0

4 envelopes - 5 1/2 x 5 1/2
-3 =Lori (mybugandi)
1


3 envelopes - 5 x 5 complete
-3 = Louise (Ldumont999)
0



PLEASE let me know what you have and what you would like me to send you in exchange. As soon as I receive your envelopes, I will send out your swap envelopes.


Envelopes can be mailed to:


Jane Newton
PO Box 403
Brandon, WI 53919


PLEASE contact me if you have questions!!!





1. mushl = Michelle
2. ldumont = Louise 5x5 envies recieved
3. mybugandi = Lori 3 of each envie
4. ValerieO
5.
6.
7.
8.
9.
10.

Do you want the envelopes to be solid white? Do you have other color preferences and the sizes for those preferences? Let me know. I have been making a ton of envelopes lately and would love to add some for the cause. Thanks for doing this.

Thank you soooooo much, Michelle! I keep saying that I'm going to make envelopes, but it seems that I just don't have time with organizing everything for the project, holding swaps, and also getting cards ready to send. Not to mention making cards to send to the houses!


I just checked, and all the cards will work with white envelopes!


Just let me know which ones you are going to make, and also which envelopes you would like me to send you!


Thanks again!


Jane

Hey Jane - I have a lot of envelope that are 5 1/4 by 7 1/4 and seems like it will fit most of your cards? Please let me know and I am happy to send them to you.

Thanks Pam! I am really hoping to get some envies that are pretty close to the sizes of the cards. I don't mean to be picky, but I was just hoping to get some a little closer in size.

But, if you want to send some of your envies, I would be happy to send you some of the other sizes that I have. I do get lots of different sizes of cards in from people all the time.

Just let me know which ones you would like to have in exchange for them!

Cool Hope everyone had a great weekend!

And were able to visit with family and friends!

It was beautiful here in WI, with just an evening sprinkle to keep the air smelling fresh!


Is there anyone that would like to help with envelopes for this swap? It is for a GREAT cause, Ronald McDonald Houses!


I need some of the sizes listed above, and I have some various sizes that I can send you in return. Just let me know what you would like me to send you!


I could also send card sleeves in exchange for envelopes, if that works better for you!


Hope some more people join!!! PLEASE?????

Hiya,
Saw this swap in your signature. How about I just make you envelopes in the sizes you posted and send them off to you? No swapping required.
Any colors you prefer?

Although I don't mind sending you some envies! White would work for all of them, Lori!


I am totally appreciative! As I said, I've had these cards for a while, and haven't sent them to a house, because I haven't had time to make envies!


THANK YOU!!!! You are an Angel!!!

Ok
I will make a few of each size and send them on their way. They should be there within a couple of weeks. Put me down for three of each? After everyone has signed up and If you would like or need more of a certain size, please let me know.
Thanks again,

4 envelopes - 3 1/4 x 4 1/2
-3 =Lori (mybugandi)
1


1 envelope - 3 1/2 x 4 1/2 complete
-3 =Lori (mybugandi)


3 envelopes - 3 1/2 x 6 1/4 complete
-3 =Lori (mybugandi)
0

4 envelopes - 5 1/2 x 5 1/2
-3 =Lori (mybugandi)
1


Here's the count, Lori. I have a favor to ask. You don't have to make any of the 5x5 envies, because Louise sent me those.


Plus, I only need one of the 3 1/2 x 41/2.


SOOOOOO, could you make one more 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 envie to make a total of 4 and complete that group?


Plus, I only need one more of the 3 1/4 x 4 1/2 to complete that group. Honestly, you can probably make them all the 3 1/2 x 4 1/2 and just make 5 of them. Let me know if that works for you!

Hi,
I have made enough that you do not need to ask for more in any size. You may even have a couple extras.

I was going to send you all that you need, no swapping needed. I have the SU! Envelope punch board and making envelopes is easy breezy. I also have a TON of colored copy paper from when the store that I worked at closed. Well if you need more let me know.

I am not amazing. Thank you though. I just like to help, quietly.
Please always let me know if you need help in any way shape or form with the RMc House(s) or any other charity for that matter! I dont have a lot of $$$ to give but I do have a little time and way too much crafty stuff to share
