THIS IS ROUND #20

This is a twist on the usual postage stamp chain card. Instead of using new stamps and sending the postcard naked, you put used stamps on send in an envelope, until the writing side of the postcard is full. Once it's full, you send the postcard naked and stamped back to its owner. Stamps used should be off paper, but if they don't like coming off paper (USA forever stamps I'm looking at you...lol) then cut the paper off as close to the stamp as you can without damaging the stamp.

SEE THE SWAP PHOTO TO SEE AN EXAMPLE OF WHAT A COMPLETED CARD LOOKS LIKE :)

Starting a new card:

1: Pick a postcard. Use one that's not too big, as it needs to fit in an envelope.

2: Write your address on the address part of the postcard. This is how the postcard will be returned to you once it is full of stamps. Also write your username somewhere on the card and the round the card was started in.

3: Put 2 used stamps from your country on the message side of the card. I recommend using a glue stick to stick the stamps on.

4: Put the postcard in an envelope, and send it on to your partner. Don't forget to include your username and the swap name on the envelope or a note inside the envelope.

Passing on a card you received in a previous round:

1: Put 2 used stamps from your country on the message side of the card. I recommend using a glue stick to stick the stamps on.

2: Put the postcard in an envelope, and send it on to your partner. Don't forget to include your username and the swap name on the envelope or a note inside the envelope.

Check to make sure you are not sending your partners card back to them as part of the current round. If this is the case, make a new card and save the other card for the next round.

If you have received a card that is full once you have put your stamps on, attach correct postage and send it on to its owner. Then if you don't have a card to send on to have stamps attached, start a new one :)

There will be a new round posted every month or so, once you receive a card from a previous round, sign up for the next round.

If you have too many cards that are not full yet, or you are no longer going to participate, please contact me so I can put the extra cards back into rotation.

Any questions, just ask! Thanks for your interest in these swaps :)

I think I read somewhere that you can use blow dryer heat to help get used stamps off

Has anyone seen my postcard? Vaishnavi from India.

I will be passing on Judith Rudolf's postcard in this round.

A question - just wonder why you are putting stamps from your own country on a new pc to send around. I mean, stamps from my own country are the easiest ones to get hold to and they take space from another round.

I rather send stamps from my own country to my partner so she/he will get something from this swap - otherwise this swap won't give the partner anything.

Well - I have never done a chain like this so perhaps it is me just not getting it....

I have done postage bags though and there you are given stamps from the bag before putting in your own ones.
