    Hi All

    I am making Save the Date magnets out of small round log pieces, stamped on the front with our names and the date and a small magnet on the back.

    I am attaching this to kraft card with a cream overlay giving some information on the accommodation. I was wondering how to send these in the post? I thought about putting some kraft card over the front so it doesn't stick through the envelope but I am reading lots about not being able to send magnets in the post unless it has 20mm packaging around it. I don't really want to use bubblewrap as it kind of takes away the rustic nature of the save the date.

    Any ideas anyone?

    I sent 3 of my save the date magnets by post - the England one definitely arrived not too sure about the New Zealand ones though

    And I didn't put anything special around mine!

    When mine came in the bag from the sender they didn't have anything around them either

    That's reassuring, maybe its international only?!

    Possibly.. As I say I'm not sure if my nz ones got there - they haven't said they've recieved them so this may explain why :)
