Rip it, get ripped, have a ripping good time! For this swap, make one postcard using all ripped paper. NO SCISSORS ALLOWED. No punches either. The only straight edges allowed are if you happened upon a corner ...

Only use of the scissors allowed is to trim around the border of your postcard.

Create a collage using only ripped elements. Feel free to add any other layers that you wish - sewing, paint, ink, etc. Postcard size your choice - standard is 4 x 6 inches but 5 x 7 inches gives you more space to have fun. Feel free to go larger ...

I usually intend these handmade postcards to be sent naked (not in an envelope) but if you think yours won't make it through the mail, pop it in an envelope.

This is sender's choice ...

Any other layers - paint, ink, etc. but 100% paper? Or csn I add ripped fabric, threads, etc? Thsnks!

Hmmm. Great idea to use fabric. I think because I say paper above then paper should be present but then I say add anything else so fabric is very creative and clever. Go for it.
