For some reason, I love maps and if you feel the same way, this may be the swap for you! let's get creative with all the maps we have collected over the years!

In this swap you'll have 2 partners and you will create mail art using original maps only (so no google maps print outs!). The mail art can be sender's choice of a PC (no smaller than 6x4 inches) or an envelope. But creating an envelope out of an atlas/map page is not enough for this swap! Be creative!!
Use whatever you have at your disposal, pages from atlases, touristy destination maps, or just little direction maps in invitation flyers. Anything map wise goes. You can use other elements for the mail art too, rubberstamp, paint, embellish as you like, but the majority of the mail art must be made out of maps.
