Let's try making some faux (fake) postage stamps. This video link makes it look like a lot of fun (there's also several other videos on this subject). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HvjYnqBhKPI
We will be making 8 faux stamps for our 1 partner. Any size resembling a postage stamp. Sender's choice.

Please use protective packaging in a sturdy mailer. Due to postage costs, this will be "regional/US/NA" only.

Please rate on time. If you receive an item that meets the swap requirements, even if you're not thrilled with it, please don't rate down. Remember, we've all had bad days at one time or other.

If you don't receive your swap within 2 weeks of the "send" date, let your partner know. If you have problems after that, let me know & I will angel. And if you can't get your swap out on time, please please let your partner know that it will be delayed.

Let's have some fun with this new project. I know I will. (Note: the image above is being used as an example only)

Am I to understand that these may be any size, as long as they resemble the perforated edge of postage stamps???

After I watched the video and noticed how small hers were, it made me reconsider. I was going to use my ATC sized die to cut them and work at that size. Anything smaller makes me nervous because everyday is different for me, when it comes to the steadiness of my hands. I have tremors sometimes making it hard to write. Other days, Iโ€™m as steady handed as my youth!

Anyway, if ATC sizes are not allowable for this swap. No biggie! I understand. I will drop out of this go round. Thanks for letting me know ๐Ÿ˜„ AND for offering such a fun swap idea!

About the "any size resembling a postage stamp" - please clarify, do you mean small (maybe not as tiny as a real stamp, but nearly)? Or do you mean "any size" as in small, or it could be big. I love the idea if it's small!
