i am stuck on what to use for background...as in the piece you stick the stuff on... i'm guessing normal people just use some form of cardstock... but i don't have too much of that readily avaible... hm... flemsy magazine pages just seems too thin... any suggestions?

p.s. there are too many chinese new year things for me to narrow it down.

You could use old postcards, and dress it with something nice Smiley

playing cards could work. Its a good way to use of decks missing cards, the jokers or instruction cards.

You could use food boxes -- just cut them down.  Where you are, I bet you have all kinds of interesting food boxes with Chinese on them -- you could cut it so that the print is on the back of the card and visible, and you have a nice plain surface on the front to work with.

Anything that is thin, lightweight, and somewhat stiff works fine.  Please don't use paper alone -- it won't survive the mail.

Hi all --  Don't forget to PM me when you send.  I might notice your post, but then again I might not!

I just changed the date for sendouts to 2/20 -- 2/19 is a mail holiday in the U.S.

Also, if you've already sent, please check the swap record to make sure I've recorded the information properly.
