Number of swap partners:1

For this swap, you nead to take a (bigger) postcard and devide it in to 4 pieces. (not cut it, just draw it in to 4 pieces)

In the first piece, you write the name and adress of your partner, paste some stamps on it. You also write your own swap-bot name in a corner and than you mail it to your partner.

On the card you receive, you glue some stickers/papers or something else, over your own adress. In short: you cover the whole piece where your name and adress is in and decorate it. It would be nice to use the stamps that are already on the postcard in your decoration.

When you're done, you can join the next round of this swap and write the name of your partner is this round in the next piece, paste some stamps on the card and send it to your partner.

The third participant on the card, decorates his piece, pasts stamps on the card and sends it to the owner. (you need to contact the owner for his/her adress)

After 3 rounds you'll receive back your own card, totally decorated.

On the image you see an example of a card wich arrived home. On this card, many stamps are used. You may also draw in the white sections, so the card gets a little bit more colours.

I'll start a new round every 3 weeks and you can start to join in any round.

I'm a little confused too. Is this just one re-circulating postcard?

hi, I'm a little confused too.... I already participated in this swap for round #1, and I suppose only people from round #1 can join round #2, so that the card will come back to me after 4 rounds? lol Or, will I receive my own card back after round #1 before I intend to join any round 2--- which means in my round 1 swap, I'll have to send back the card I received to the sender, and ask that person for his/her address? I really need to know... :)

@ witchyblossom:

Well, I guess it's a bit like the ATC-bag swap, do you know that one? If you receive the bag from the person you have to send a bag in the new round to, but you're the first person who received the bag, you need to make another one yourself and send that one to your partner. You keep the partners bag and send it to someone else in another round, so this person doesn't get its bag back to soon.

So you only send the card back to the owner, it you're the 3rd person who received it. If you don't want yourself to make a new one, please let me know. I can send you one of the cards who are in my posession now.

Greetz, Suzanne
