    Mail Art Ornies ~ Due December 15

    Swap Due Date ~ December 15, 2018
    Signup/Withdraw Date ~ Just communicate!
    Number of coins- 3/3 or if more than 5 join ~ 6/6
    Number of Participants - unlimited
    Mixed Media


    Mail Art Ornies ~~~ This swap will also be a sort of challenge! Your ornaments must be able to be mailed in a business size envelope for 2 forever stamps* or less!!

    I haven't seen any ornament swaps this season and I miss them! I'm guessing they're not around because of the cost of mailing... So ~ let's make some sort of hanging ornament that is relatively flat and lightweight! This will be a quick turnaround swap so that we can have them returned by Christmas.

    They must be at least the size of an ATC or ATC Coin, but they could be larger - up to you They must be lightweight ~ but NOT just paper!! You could use cereal carboard, milk jug plastic, etc, any firm yet relatively lightweight base. You can make your ornies any style you like = Artist's Choice! You can make traditional seasonal or more artistic - again up to you! Also make sure your ornament is in some sort of protection when mailing and that there is a hanger of some sort ~ like a pretty string...

    So let's see the beautiful ornis we can make using relatively simple inexpensive items. Here are the rules:
    1) No more than 2 forever stamps (*International must use only their countries international flat rate stamp - no extra postage!)
    2) firm but lightweight
    3) No smaller than an ATC or ATC Coin
    4) must have a hanger

    Who wants to challenge themselves? Lets have some fun with this! I know it seems like a lot of rules, but I think it can still be a fun challenge


    International players – Must be able to include $1 or US stamps. Please include a mailing label with name & address. I will provide return envelopes.
    US players – Please include a self addressed stamped envelope with the same amount of postage used to send to me


    Who wants to play?

    Lurking at this point until I finish my other commitments.
    Life is a rush into the unknown. You can duck down and hope nothing hits you or stand tall and say "Dish it up, Baby, and don't skimp on the jalapenos."

    First set done. One for me and two for the swap. I'm working on two other possible designs to round out the 3 and have one as a hostess gift. If we get a couple more people I may go for the 6 for 6.
