Do you love packaging tape? The sound as its stretched over your package? The way it takes all oils and fuzz from you and applies it to your package to share with your swap partner?!
For this swap I'm challenging you to make a postcard out of clear packaging tape with a Easter/Spring Theme
The USPS has size regulations for postcards. This way it's not considered first class mail and you'll get the postcard rate. The postal service rules are located here:
I have heard that some post offices are charging more. Technically they are suppose to go on size and thickness. Be prepared and give them a run for their money :)
For this swap, Postcards must be rectangular. Minimum 3.5" high, 5" long, .007 thick or Maximum 4.25" high, 6" long, .016" thick.
Here's some ideas to help you:
http://www.kimcollisterstudio.com/2017/10/tutorial-for-packing-tape-cards.html?m=1 Get creative! Use things that make you happy! Share the packaging tape love!
Now for the important stuff:
2.Add fun flat goodies.. washing, sequins, stickers, magazine clippings, fun papers ect.
3.DO NOT coat a regular postcard in packaging tape! That is not the point!
As long as you receive a postcard made of packaging tape, that has flat goodies inside. Rate a 5. If it's pretty amazing to you give a heart.
