DECOS - Do you miss them?


DECOS - Do you miss them?

Do you miss Decos? What’s a DECO? It’s a sort of mail art friendship book, but with a theme. Each book has around 6 to 10 pages inside and a THEME. You do a page according to your art style and following the theme, and you mail it to another DECO person. It’s like an ADD/PASS, in a way. When it’s full, it goes back to the person who started it.

I started doing DECOs back in 2004, but then people started making them too heavy, gluing all sorts of heavy embellishments, etc., and I couldn’t afford the postage. Then, the DECO world sort of died out. I’d like to see if any of you are interested. 

Let me know if you have questions! Hugs, Bonniediva

Hey Everyone! I’m so happy for the interest. To keep the weight down, we could use thin paper for the pages and keep them under 10 pages. I’m going to send one to each of you on the discussion board! Yay!

I think this would be fun to try!

I'd give it a try, Bonnie. Maybe there could be a "rule" about keeping the weight down.
