Homemade Post Cards

Last year, I discovered at one of the camps my son attended, that the counselors like to read the post cards aloud and make a big deal of them.  This camp specifically asked parents to send funny post cards.  Well, even though not all camps will read them aloud, I've started sending homemade post cards to my boys at camp.  

My son's name is Marshall and sometimes we call him Mars for short.
I make the cards like I would any other card except it's not folded over.  I try not to use any embellies or ribbons or anything to make it too bulky, just papers.  Then, I take clear contact paper and put it over everything to make sure nothing will fall off in the mail.

The front of the card is silly and I usually write a semi-silly but encouraging note on the other side.
 I put the address and a short message on the back, add a cheaper postcard stamp, and put it in the mail.  So far, I haven't had any problems with them getting delivered.
Perfect for Boy Scout camp.
This was Mar's space ship card last year.
