I love making flower ATCs and I know others do too. With Spring not far away, followed by the summer, let's go mad and have an alphabet flower bonanza. Two swaps...this one for wild flowers, and another, (see separate listing) for garden or cultivated flowers. Instead of doing one letter at a time, we'll do four, and incorporate the other two as and when appropriate, so that the swaps only span six or seven months. There will only be one partner, and a month to work on each swap.

So, this swap is for WILD FLOWERS (including flowers from trees and shrubs, like wild fruit trees, hawthorn etc)

You will have 1 (one ) partner and make them 4 (four) ATCs, one each for flowers beginning with M,N,O & P You can use any medium, and please only limited use of stickers, (though not prohibited). Try and be creative and produce a set of cards your partner will cherish.

This swap is INTERNATIONAL. It is open to those with a rating above 4.8 , but because of the work involved in making four ATC's, it will NOT be open to NEW MEMBERS. Sorry, but 4 cards to one person is quite a commitment. You will have a month to produce your cards and get them sent off after partners are assigned. Read your partner's profile and if they have a particular favourite flower which serendipitously begins with M,N,O or P...you could make their day by using it for one of your cards. Have fun! :)

I have a question! If we find a good wildflower that has a Latin name that begins with M, N, O or P, can we use it?

I can't think of a good example right now... maybe Basil = Ocimum basilicum, but that's not a wildflower... but you see what I'm getting at, could basil count as an "O" if it were a wildflower? ;)

@miahalf if you were my partner I wouldn't mind if you picked based on Latin names! One of mine fit the letter due to scientific name rather than common name.

I've used Latin names previously. Getting to the end of the alphabet, I find it's getting harder to match up letters.

Kimmikat 07/13/2009 #

I have no problems with the latin names, the 'common names' or colloquial. The only thing i would stipulate is that if you use a name that is a little more obscure to most of us, like the Latin names, please add the more common name somewhere (the back of the card will do ) Susie.

this site should be very helpful, you can look them up by common names OR botanical names, even by color.
