Pretty Postal Tropical Swap 2018 - Sent

I participated in Pretty Postal's tropical mail swap in February. I thought the swap theme was fun - here are the tropical-themed items I included in what I sent to my swap partners.

To see what I received from my swap partners: Pretty Postal Tropical Swap 2018 - Received

Fuse Tool Pineapple Shaker

Using the We R Memory Keepers Fuse tool, along with pineapple clip art I found online (as a guide) and colorful sequins, I made these pineapple shakers:

Tropical Mini Card

This mini card is made from tropical-themed patterned paper, plus a few sequins and a stamped sentiment. The card is only about 2 inches square, and the card base is from a basic card and envelope pack I bought a while ago from either JoAnn or Michael's. The nice thing about buying a basic card set is that it comes with envelopes already, and all I needed to do was to decorate the front of the cards.

Pineapple Washi Tape

The clear tag is made from transparencies that I trimmed down and set an eyelet in using a Crop-a-Dile. I'd previously gotten some pineapple washi in different colors from Freckled Fawn, and was glad that I had a perfect reason to share the washi.

Monstera Card

These clean and simple monstera leaf cards were made using the Silhouette Cameo, along with a design from the Silhouette design store.

Clear Envelopes

I intended to use these clear envelopes, but the post office worker told me that they couldn't be mailed. I found out later that you could pay a bit more to have the envelopes cancelled by hand, but by then, I'd already popped the snail mail into different (plain) envelopes in order to get them sent off.
