Want to say thanks to @capagrl for this idea, hope we get some takers.

For swap you will create Mail Art to the theme of the swap. All mediums welcome, please remember if you are doing 3D artwork to secure it well to the envie as they can sometimes come adrift in the rigors of the postal system.

You will have one partner. Please put something in your envie, it could be a letter about yourself, pc, bookmark, stickers, address labels. If you are sending your envie empty you must PM your partner first to check if okay with it. If this is the case then you must rate as per swapbot rules.

As this is a flower power related swap you may want to put a pkt of flower seeds in as your gift to your partner but that is sender's choice though and also dependent of your partners countries regulations.

Rules for swap: No 1's or 3's in last 4mths.

Rate your partner according to swap-bot rules

If you are having problems of sending out on time you MUST contact your partner to keep them in the loop.

There is plenty of time for sign up so that we have the chance to get our creative minds to work.

If you have any questions please PM and will endeavour to answer as timely as possible. You can leave comments below.

Love it!!!

FYI, if you get me, please do not send seeds to France, nor will send any abroad I as they have a good chance of not passing through customs and it would be a shame if envelope got destroyed.thanks!! Tama

Thank you for that note @TTrotti

Don't send them to Australia either as they won't make it. I think that most counrtries have restrictions on seeds, so it will only work if you are sending within your own country.

P.S. Its a nice thought though :)

Does the canvas for our flower power mail art have to be an envelope? Why not a handmade postcard?

love this idea--I just got some cool paper flowers in the mail from another swap and they are just perfect for this!! Yay--It's nice to be able to use things right away :)

@melusina i think it would be difficult to include a "tuck-in" with a postcard and a tuck-in is part of the requirements. But I love making handcrafted PCs, if you ever would like to do a private swap. I have several posted on my Flickr. :)
