Hi everyone!

For those of us who do any type of paper craft, you most likely have a whole bunch of paper scraps. By paper scraps, I mean bits and pieces of papers that you don't know what to do with left over from other projects. I have a plastic container filled with bits and pieces!

For this swap, we will be using those scraps to create a postcard!

Take a piece of cardboard (cereal boxes work great!) and cut to 4x6 size. You can also use blank postcards. I have a bunch that I bought from Amazon, but that's not required.

Create a design using your paper scraps on the front of your postcard. Create any design you want using many different paper pieces. Get creative and make something really nice for your partner.

If your art feels thick or you are afraid it will not go through the mail as is, it's ok to use a clear postcard envelope to mail or cover with Modpodge. Please DO NOT laminate. Also, please don't put in a regular envelope. We want the art to be seen!

On the back of the card, write a message to your partner, and on the right put their address. Be sure to add appropriate postage!

Note on postcard size: Postcard should be around 4x6, any larger and you may need to add additional postage.

Be sure to include your swap-bot id and name of swap so you can get rated. Please rate when you receive your postcards. You can not rate down if you don't like it.

Must have a rating of 4.98 or higher. I will ban anyone who has any unexplained/recent 1's or 3's with no explanations for them.

I will angel if you do not receive but only after you have communicated with your partner and a 1 is given - but please don't let that happen!

Just wondering… Is it putting down scraps as they are, or creating a collaged picture type thing?

@kelliegirl6 Sorry, just saw this. To answer your question. It's totally up to you. I put them down as they are and arrange them how I like them to create something I think looks nice. Sometimes things need to be cut down if too long, or overlapped, or I can use decorative scissors to make something nice.

Sorry mine is a day or two late. We had a family emergency and I was out of town!
