Can I augment pre-paid postcards?

I am trying to enter a contest from a magazine where you need to solve a puzzle and send in the answers on a postcard. You are allowed to send in as many entries as you want. So I went to the post office and bought a stack of pre-paid (26 cents) postcards. Rather than write out the answers on each card, I was thinking it would be quicker to just print out the answers several times, cut them out onto small pieces of paper and tape them to the postcards. My two concerns are:
1. Will the USPS deliver these? I'm worried that the weight of the small piece of paper and the tape might push the postage over the pre-paid limit.
2. Will they remain intact in the mail? If they're stuck on with 4 pieces of scotch tape (one on each side), how likely is it that the paper will become unattatched during shipping?
