I joined postcrossing.com at the start of summer and have managed to send a few. I believe I’m at around 16 at the moment. Most of the postcards I send are typical postcards that you get in a tourist shop (I have plenty of these because my sister happens to work in such a tourist shop). I wanted to get a few postcards though that didn’t have those only on a postcard shots but these can be hard to find sometimes when you like in a small city and when you do find those sets, they can be expensive – or maybe you just don’t want 50 postcards in that style.
Instead of buying them, I just made some seeing as there’s nothing really special about a postcard. It’s just a piece or card with a stamp and address written on it after all. There’s nothing complicated about making a postcard. All you have to do is get some nice card, cut it to size, leave space for the stamp and address, write your message and send it off!
It’s a great way of using up some of that card stock you might not know what to do with and they can be very cute. On a side note, these type of postcards happen to be one of the mystery that was in that envelope from my giveaway.
