Altered Postcard: Silk Flowers & a Caption

Launch gallery slideshow

Swap Coordinator:TerryF (contact)
Swap categories: Postcards 
Number of people in swap:3
Type:Type 3: Package or craft
Last day to signup/drop:June 13, 2011
Date items must be sent by:July 11, 2011
Number of swap partners:1

Take a purchased postcard and alter it by (1) affixing at least one piece of a silk flower (not stems or leaves or calyxes or stamens, etc.) to it AND (2) adding a caption (serious, funny, whatever you like).

By "silk", I mean any artificial flower, like the ones you can get at dollar stores.

By "at least one piece", I mean that you may take the flower apart and use one layer of the flower, cut out just one petal, or use whole flowers if you can find a way to make it suitable for mailing "naked". (";)

Just because we are using silk flowers here doesn't mean that the subject of the PC must be flowers. Use your imagination and have fun with the alterations!

Please send your PC "naked" (if you prefer your PCs in an envelope then perhaps this isn't the swap for you).

This is open to all SB members in good standing, including newbies with fully completed profiles, and I reserve the right to drop anyone I may have concerns about.

Please note that I screen carefully after sign up and you can find further details on my profile page. However, if you have any concerns in the meantime, please pm me.

Have fun!

Sounds like a blast! Only problem is the postal system, for the cards protection can they be sent in an envy if we have rough handlers? If not then I am Ok with the rules, because this sounds like fun!

I have sent all kinds of fabric PCs through the mail, including ones with beads and buttons on them, and they have all arrived intact, Just make sure everything is well attached and as flat as possible. Also, I always ask the postal clerk to hand cancel mine so they don't go through the machines to be cancelled.

But if your partner is ok with it in an envelope, then that is between the 2 of you. I am mailing mine naked. (";)

Changed send by date (was originally June 20) due to Canadian postal strike and advised participants via email.
