That’s really sounds like an amazing project! I think, since you are making some sort of a series of them, lots of postcrossers and collectors wouldn’t mind to receive such card.

I’m a bit confused. Are they postcards? Do post offices accept these as postcards? If so, I love them as postcards, very funny :smile:

Thank you, really cool! I just can’t found what is on their other side. Do you glue white paper there to write on it?

Cool idea, love it!

I believe most people don’t, but if the background is very dark, then yes. (Same holds for other type of handmade cards e.g. collage cards)

The garden was is cut from a catalogue and then pasted on. The washi tape border… didn’t turn out well. Learned some lessons on that one, lol.

The other is just used Japanese stamps because I love their stamps.

I decorated the backs too but forgot to take pics.

A card and a “tea bag” I made a while back for a penpal. The “tea bag” was made of used thick papers and a simple thread. I don’t know where I got the idea to make it but i like the result. I guess it can be used as a bookmark? :sweat_smile:
