Default December Fabric Postcard swap

FABRIC POSTCARD SWAP

Wouldn’t be fun and exciting to receive a personalized handmade postcard? It’s such a great creative outlet and they’re so quick to make. Plus, it’s a wonderful ‘immediate gratification’ project. There are lots of online resources available with all sorts of ideas, inspiration and ‘how-to’s.’ We will have a general theme each month and, since these are so quick, the due date will be the end of each month.

The theme for December is Christmas or Hanukkah!!

You may use cardstock cut to 4” x 6”, purchased blank postcards or some kind of stiff interfacing, i.e., Timtex, Fast2Fuse, Wonder Under, etc. If you use batting to make your postcard, be prepared to pay additional postage. Any other size will cost more postage. International swappers are welcome!

Please PM me with the following:
• QB screen name
• Real name
• Address/city/state/zip
• Favorite colors
• Which holiday do you celebrate? Christmas? Hanukkah? Neither? Something else?

This is not meant to be a Secret Pal kind of swap. Once I have everyone partnered up, I will post the QB names on the thread then will send along the above information by PM to the respective swappers.
Some required details:
• Postcards must be 4” x 6”
• They must have a finished edge, i.e., zig zag stitching, button hole stitching, satin stich, binding, etc.
• If you add a lot of embellishment, you may need to enclose your handmade postcard in a clear mailing envelope (available at the big box stores and online) in order for the USPS to handle it/mail it and so your postcard doesn’t get caught in their equipment.
• Your postcard must have adequate postage. Do not send something that will require the recipient to have to pay postage due. To be safe, please either check at your local post office or put 49 cents on your postcard for US. Check with your PO for international postage.
• Please PM me when you have mailed your postcard AND when you have received your postcard. Also, as a courtesy, please PM your sender to let them know you’ve received their postcard.
• Have fun and be creative!!

Jane

Do it Zienna it's a small commitment, if you don't like making them no harm you only committed to one and it's very affordable too.

These really are fun and quick. Hope you decide to jump in, Zennia. I suggest you check out Pinterest for fabric postcards and you'll get loads of ideas. Lots of fun.

Thanks, Billi! You're in!

Now that I have posted about my November Fabric Postcard, I am signing up for December. It will be like getting a special Christmas Card.

If anyone hasn't looked back at the November Fabric Postcard Swap, I have posted about the pretty one I received from MaryMo. It is very pretty, and so cheerful.

The November swap was a lot of fun! I had never thought of doing a fabric postcard, but now I'm thinking of sending them as birthday cards to my non-quilter friends!
