PLEASE READ ENTIRE SWAP DESCRIPTION
This is a USA swap only. Feel free to host your own international one.
ALSO - there are a couple of swappers that sometimes join my swap that are from Canada, but have a USA address too....PLEASE CHECK YOUR PARTNERS PROFILE
What is a Pass and Paste Postcard? It is an index card - 3x5 or 4x6 - anything over that takes a forever stamp. The "front" of the postcard is divided into 4 sections. Each section is numbered 1 through 4.
The "back" of the postcard is divided in half, just like a regular postcard. The person it was made for was addressed in the address part on the right of the card. The "writing" side was divided into 4 spaces, numbered 1 through 4. Add a postcard stamp to it.
If you are just jumping in now: For this swap, you are going to use the above instructions and make a Pass and Paste Postcard. If you are making for yourself, then you don't have to decorate a spot. If it is for someone else, then you'll decorate and sign #1 spot. Don't forget to add a postcard stamp to it too.
If you have participated in previous swaps: send on the postcard you received previously. If your partner has already signed the card or it is one that is made for them, then create a new card or contact me to send you one.
When partners are posted, you will mail the postcard in an envelope to them. When your partner receives, they will decorate the next section. Then HOLD ON TO IT for the next round. I plan on making this a monthly swap or maybe even 2 swaps within each month due to the fact that this is so easy. Anyone can jump in at any time too.
You can decorate using any medium, BUT you have to make sure that it is attached well. Zentangle, stickers, a little drawing - I used some scrapbook paper and washi tape. Also, you need to make sure that nothing is too big as the last person decorating will be sending this naked and it will have to go through the postal machines. If you glued a button on it will not survive.
Please DO NOT pass along to your partner a postcard that is made for them or they have already signed. Make a new one to pass along.
Oh and if you decide not to continue on PLEASE contact me and I will be happy to take the postcard you have.
I do have pictures of the completed Pass & Paste Postcard that I recently did but I couldn't get the picture to load onto the swap. If you would like to see what they look like please PM me with an e-mail address and I'll be happy to send the pictures to you. The picture above is one that I found with a web search. It is a bit fancier than the one I received.
Newbies welcomed, with a well filled out profile (I DO CHECK AND WILL BAN). No recent/unexplained low ratings. PLEASE check out my profile page and read the "About Swaps I Host" section for an in-depth explaination of my swap rules.
Also ~ I live in "Boonyville" Michigan and sometimes our internet connection isn't very good. This is especially true when it rains & in the winter months. I have been told that swap hosts have 7 days after the sign up date to assign partners. So please be patient, partners will get assigned and if needed I will extend the send date.
If you know of a bad swapper signed up for this swap, I appreciate being informed, but please DO NOT post to the comment section! Send me a PM and I will deal with it that way.
