I like recycling and repurposing paper and cardstock in my snail mailing, and while cleaning my desk recently, I realized how many finished/empty postcard book covers I have left and what a pity it would be to throw away these images.

For this swap, you will have 2 partners. Send each a FRONT cover of a postcard book or box. Please take care to properly trim the edge/s. Feel free to use fun postage, washi tape, and stickers to decorate the reverse. Include a note, quote, or something fun (more than just "Happy swapping!")

Sender's choice, but it wouldn't hurt to give your partners' profiles a gander.

Swappers with a 4.99 rating and at least 15 Type 2 Swaps are welcome.

I will angel, if necessary -- but hope I won't need to do so.

Oh my, I totally love this swap idea. I wish I had seen it sooner since I just through a couple covers away that other day and now I totally feel guilty because I never thought of using them. Good luck with this swap. I will start saving my covers and if you do this swap again I will be sure to join :) Thank you!

so we send the cover of an old book as postcards? Am I understanding this right?

@aligurl75 Yes, I plan to do this again :) I've been saving my PC book covers for this reason, heheh -- the art is just too good to toss! @SunTradeToo You can send covers of either boxed sets of PCs (including those 100 cards featuring a certain theme) or the cover of a book of postcards (the cards inside are usually perforated or come right out due to a gummy binding).

I am totally new so I am trying to do it myself but I am good at looking for good stuff so will it be OK if I purchase from a third party?
