Postcard DIY

Postcards and other handwritten momentos have made a comeback, and it's not hard to guess why. The personal quality that a postcard or letter oozes makes you seem cooler and classier than you were before. Plus, it feels good to remind loved ones that you're thinking about them. On Sunday, May 17, from 8 to 11:45 p.m., Epic Café, 745 N. Fourth Ave., will be hosting a postcard play party. Essentially, there will be a large reception where people can go in to make their own postcards. All the supplies, like paper and collage materials, will be provided. The party is part of the Tucson Postcard Project, started by Tucson artist Nico Ratoff, who wants to inspire the creation of 1,000 unique postcards in Tucson this month and have people send their postcards to friends, family, pen pals or strangers. In exchange for a blank postcard you donate between 10 cents and $25. The event is for all ages. Check out the event's Facebook page for more info.
