Description:

2nd run through of alphabet , starting with Letter B.

Had so much fun hunting for cardboard going to do this again. Please note this is just for a piece of cardboard and u can decorate anyway you want but don’t take away from original cardboard. I want to see that it came from a Beer box or boo berry cereal .B is for bear etc. please don’t alter too much.

LETTER B for example Bud Light, Blue Moon, B only

Use a letter of the alphabet for the swap or have something on it that starts with the letter. for example you can use anything that has an B image or B product name. I am gonna use Bud LIght . You will send one card each to 2 partners. Do not use an envelope.

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

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. You will send one card each to 2 partners. Do not use an envelope. Since you are crafting or creating from a food box, this will be a type 2 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. Or $1.15 for intl

Do some other kind of decorating to the food box side. Just make sure your partner can tell what it was originally. For example a pop tart box or Pepsi box 📦 . Or just slap a few stickers on the food packaging. So be open to all levels of creating. Sender's choice. Main thing is it's senders choice on decorating so don't get bent out of shape if u put more into it then ur partner does

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

I do angel my swaps.

please have at least 5 completed and rated swaps and at least 3 type 3 completed and rated .thanks and when rating please don't just leave a 5 write a sentence like thanks for the pop tart cardboard. I like it

Will be intl.

I’ve looked this up so many times that I finally wrote it down! Thanks for hosting. For the postcard rate mailed within the USA: * $0.35 since 1/21/2018 * rectangular, * at least 3-1/2 inches high x 5 inches long x 0.007 inch thick, AND * no more than 4-1/4 inches high x 6 inches long x 0.016 inches thick.

If it is larger than 4.25 x 6 " (but less than 6-1/8" x 11-1/2" x 1/4" thick) requires first class postage. Bigger than that and the "flats" (large envie) rate applies.
