Hi all,

I used a very small quilt that I made and turned it into nine postcards.



It was very fun and easy.  I just cut it into squares the size of the cardboard and sewed it all together.  I've already mailed them out and the recipients have been thrilled.  I go on and on at my blog but am so proud that I wanted to show them off here too.

There are too many categories this could fit into!  I picked paper because there is paper in this and it's for mailing and I thought paper artists would be more likely to care about mail art.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

Great idea! I like how the stitches show on the other side and bring some color to the white paper too Smiley There are so many ways to do this, I'm already inspired to try some of them. Thanks for the idea Smiley

Wow, I love this idea. Too bad they charge you extra for not being paper. I always wonder what all the little rules for sending things through the post are.

That's awesome! I've been looking for new mail art ideas. If I can ask, how much postage did you put on to get them there safely?

They were 1.95 each!  Weirdly, the one I sent to Germany was only $1.75.

I risked it all with the last one and sent it with an international $1.05 stamp.

My friend just sent a plywood postcard with a postcard stamp (.32 cents) and that arrived at it's destination.  I'll let you know if mine arrives.

Just an update:  My postcard was delivered using the $1.05 stamp. That means I overspent quite a bit by going into the post office. Oh well, live and learn.
