A collage postcard swap sounds like a good idea.  I just bought a whole bunch of picture frame matting at an estate sale and that would work great for a home made postcard.  Posterboard would probably also work.

I really like collaging Smiley I keep an image file.  I get most of my pictures from Smithsonian, but I get some from old National Geographics, Vogue, and some cheesy teen magazines.


I gave this one to my girlfriend for Christmas, the lyrics are from Ani DiFranco-Falling is like this

Eek, sorry for not checking this post back earlier everyone.  Yes, I either use Mod Podge or I'll just color copy it onto Glossy cardstock.  I like the glossy cardstock because the images still look like magazine cutouts and not so matte.  And then I cut them out with my Xacto.  --For a backing I just use these plain index cards that I found at a local craft shop.  They're 4.5" by 5.25" I think.  Thanks for all the comments.   Cheesy

Postcard swap?  I'm totally for it!!!

If you did a suitcase, you'd never have trouble identifying it at the airport carousel for sure! Roll Eyes

It'd draw a lot of attention too, people would be like "woa, look at that crazy awesome looking suitcase."

I collaged the outside of my first car, with black and white classic movie stars and lots of glitter. It was a lot of fun to keep adding to it. I used clear acrylic to put them on. Unfortunately i don't have photos, only a memory.
