THIS IS ROUND #13

This is a twist on the usual postage stamp chain card. Instead of using new stamps and sending the postcard naked, you put used stamps on send in an envelope, until the writing side of the postcard is full. Once it's full, you send the postcard naked and stamped back to its owner. Stamps used should be off paper, but if they don't like coming off paper (USA forever stamps I'm looking at you...lol) then cut the paper off as close to the stamp as you can without damaging the stamp.

SEE THE SWAP PHOTO TO SEE AN EXAMPLE OF WHAT A COMPLETED CARD LOOKS LIKE :)

Starting a new card:

1: Pick a postcard. Use one that's not too big, as it needs to fit in an envelope.

2: Write your address on the address part of the postcard. This is how the postcard will be returned to you once it is full of stamps. Also write your username somewhere on the card and the round the card was started in.

3: Put 2 used stamps from your country on the message side of the card. I recommend using a glue stick to stick the stamps on.

4: Put the postcard in an envelope, and send it on to your partner. Don't forget to include your username and the swap name on the envelope or a note inside the envelope.

Passing on a card you received in a previous round:

1: Put 2 used stamps from your country on the message side of the card. I recommend using a glue stick to stick the stamps on.

2: Put the postcard in an envelope, and send it on to your partner. Don't forget to include your username and the swap name on the envelope or a note inside the envelope.

Check to make sure you are not sending your partners card back to them as part of the current round. If this is the case, make a new card and save the other card for the next round.

If you have received a card that is full once you have put your stamps on, attach correct postage and send it on to its owner. Then if you don't have a card to send on to have stamps attached, start a new one :)

There will be a new round posted every month or so, once you receive a card from a previous round, sign up for the next round.

If you have too many cards that are not full yet, or you are no longer going to participate, please contact me so I can put the extra cards back into rotation.

Any questions, just ask! Thanks for your interest in these swaps :)

You can also put the stamps in a bowl of hot water for a few minutes. This makes it easier to get the stamps off the paper. You just have to be careful peeing it or the stamp will rip. Then let it dry and afterwards you can glue it to the postcard.

I have had some success with ironing the envelope side of the stamp. The heat softens the glue and usually I do not need any additional glue to reattach my stamp to some other surface. Be sure to lay the stamp side on some scrap paper as some stamps bleed.
