Hi everyone!

For those of us who do any type of paper craft, you most likely have a whole bunch of paper scraps. By paper scraps, I mean bits and pieces of papers that you don't know what to do with left over from other projects. I have a plastic container filled with bits and pieces!

For this swap, we will be using those scraps to create a postcard!

Take a piece of cardboard (cereal boxes work great!) and cut to 4x6 size. You can also use blank postcards. I have a bunch that I bought from Amazon, but that's not required.

Create a design using your paper scraps on the front of your postcard. Create any design you want using many different paper pieces. Get creative and make something really nice for your partner.

On the back of the card, write a message to your partner, and on the right put their address. Be sure to add appropriate postage!

Note on postcard size: Postcard should be around 4x6, any larger and you may need to add additional postage.

Be sure to include your swap-bot id and name of swap so you can get rated. Please rate when you receive your postcards. You can not rate down if you don't like it.

Must have a rating of 4.98 or higher. I will ban anyone who has any unexplained/recent 1's or 3's with no explanations for them.

I will angel if you do not receive but only have you have communicated with your partner and a 1 is given - but please don't let that happen!

Does it need to form one image, or can this be abstract or a collage?

Shouldn't the address go on the right side?

@SatisHuman - YES, sorry, I updated the swap info. The note should go on the left and the address on the right.

@Carol - it can be whatever you want to create. If you look at my picture from the one I made, it's sort of a collage.

Can we put the postcard inside an enveloppe ? I am not sure about how the India post will manage an artistic postcard and be sure they will send it out ?
