i borrowed part of this from @azmom875 . i came up with this twist, and although i have seen other swaps like it, i havent seen one thru the alphabet. If i offend anyone i apologize, but there have been many different takes on this. First off please remember this is for a piece of cardboard. I know it says decorate but please keep in mind like I have stated in all swaps any kind of decorating is ok. You may get one all glammed out or one with just stickers on it. The main thing is that the letter for the swap has to be visible and obvious. (Please let me know if ya have questions). I have rcvd some really pretty ones that someone has put a lot of effort into and some just with stickers and honestly either is fine. Find a lunchables box and stick a lunchbox sticker on it and that is ok with me but if ya want to go all out thats ok too.

this is a Cardboard Postcard swap but with a twist. your chunk has to start with the letter of the alphabet for the swap or have something on it that starts with the letter. for example the letter is M,, anything with a M image but it has to be cardboard and a recognizable brand. Like A mike and Ike’s box. You will send one chunk each to 2 partners. Do not use an envelope. Since you are crafting or creating from a food box, this will be a type 3 swap.

Find a food or beverage box, made of chipboard. The freezer safe kind, like a frozen pizza box, will work fine, as well. Please dont use boxes with food stains on either side.

Cut approx 4x6 inches from said box. You can make it bigger if you dont mind paying the extra postage. 55 cents for bigger than the approx 4x6 size.

Do some other kind of decorating to the food box side. You can even cover the whole thing with paper and gesso and ink. Or just slap a few stickers on the food packaging. So be open to all levels of creating. Please don't be upset if what you receive isn't the same as what you send for example some people might put a little more effort into their 'craft" and some may just stick stickers and wash on it (I've received both) the point is to get the letter on it. I try finding unique cardboard and have fun doing so. Sender's choice.

Write a message, and address it to your partner, stamp, mail naked not in an envelope.

I do angel my swaps.
