I am not an ATC maker. But I do like to particiapte in an exchange every now and then. But what to do with them once you have them collected? I know there are options, but for the sporadic ATC collector, I am a bit in the dark. Until now....I found some cute little 3X4" ATC page protectors and voila...made a cute little gatefold album using Zutter's 7.5 X 5" Chipboard Covers. This size of covers is often overlooked for the more standard 4X4 and 6X6, but I like this size now. It's big enough to hold what I want, but still mini enough to be, well, to be mini.
Ok, so anyway, I split one cover in half and used a center punch method on each side. I also used some white owire - another item I rarely use, and I don't know why. The white adds a bright, lighter look, especially with these cute papers from Melody Ross/GCD - cute and simple. The quote below is perfect for the ATCs :)
So my little gatefold flaps fold out in both directions and I can enjoy the ATCs given to me by crafty friends. They really are sweet, and so much better here than languishing in a drawer.
Hope you have a great week.
