Please make one ATC or one PostCard for your one partner. The ATC or Postcard must be made using something recycled. It could be as simple as using a recycled materials backing, like a cereal box or recycled paper/note card/book pages, the inside of an envelope, or fabric, or beads, etc. So many ways to recycle when making Mail Art.

October's ATC or Postcard theme: Postage Stamp

Each month is themed. Please incorporate the theme into your ATC or Postcard, in some way.

An ATC is sized 2.5 x 3.5 inches. Postcards are minimum 4 x 6 inches. Please sign and date the back, with your artist info. The purpose of this challenge is to make interesting artistic ATCs and/or postcards, while recycling, not to just glue the items of the month on a card.....for example if the theme is flowers...do not cut out from a magazine 1, or even 20 flowers, and sloppily glue-stick them to a backing and call it an ATC.. These are miniature works of art. Have fun creating them.
