atc holder challenge

Blissfull ATC Swap also held a challenge this month to create a holder for our ATCs. I have been storing mine in a paper mache 'book' which I decided to decorate for the challenge.


The inspiration for the collage came from another of my dear friends, Linda from Moments In An Eye. She recently sent me a package of collage goodies. Lovely images, stamps, trinkets and pieces of this and that.



It was like Christmas morning! I used a few of her goodies here. Linda also loves clocks and time which inspired me to use the clock images on my box as well.



Inside the 'book'.



The 'pages' are made from recycled plain brown paper bags and the pockets are pages from a great vintage book I found at a second hand book store. I love that it already came with a wonderful aged patina.


I'll eventually put a pocket on the other side as I get more ATCs. The little leaves stamp came from my September swap partner Yvette. I love it!



Each packet is made of 2 layers of folded paper that gave me a total of 4 'pages'. I can take them out and rearrange them however I like which I thought was fun.



This challenge is actually a contest so you can go over to Blissfull ATC Swap and vote for your favorite one. There are some really amazing and creative ATC holders there. Go take a look!

This is a terrific way to save and show the cards you receive, and still keep them protected.
