Chunky ATC

To enter my current giveaway, click here.

The very first ATC I saw on YouTube intrigued me so much that I knew I needed to learn more about them.  They weren't quite as popular then and there were fewer videos to watch about them, but I set out to learn all that I could.  I learned 3 basic things:
1. Size Matters - ATC's are 2.5" X 3.5" only
2. They should never be sold
3. The rest is up to you
I was hooked from the 1st one I ever made.  I altered a 7Gypsies ATC library drawer and began swapping as well as creating my own.


Recently, I was challenged to make a "Chunky ATC".  I jumped into the challenge with both feet and created this one-of-a-kind ATC.  It will be included in a swap that I have coming up.


Supplies:
Gameboard cut into an ATC
Garage Sale lace find (white)
3 Girl JAM white ribbon
Gold button - from my stash
Folk Art Metallic Amethyst Paint and homemade spray
Pale green paper from my stash
Scor-Tape and Glossy Accents
Vintage typewriter

You can find full details in the video below.


Thanks for stopping by today.  Remember to take some time to enjoy the little things.
