i must have had a little to much to drink...do you see that face...i should be ashamed of putting this up....bwhahahaha oh well...
Chipboard/Cardboard (not the corrugated kind)
papers of choice
twine (enought o wrap around your holder a few times)
button with holes
plain white printer paper (about 10 sheets or more depending on how much you want to hold)
liquid glue or double sided tape
crop o dile or small hole punch
trimmer with scoring blade
Cut a strip of card board with 12”Lx 3 1/4 W
You can see the measurements on the pic.
Leave it on the side to embelish it later.
Now you want to make some pockets to hold your ATC cards
Your measurements for your pockets is 9 inches L by 4 1/2 inches wide
Fold your paper at 3 inches and then again at 3 inches
Now glue the side shut with your glue and keep repeating until all 10 are glued together
Once they are all glued you will then put glue on top of one and start the chain reation
until you get this:
Your measurements for your paper that you will cover your holder with will be the same size as your holder :) Start covering your chipboard and embellish it however you want.
Attach your accordion inside some liquid glue or double sided tape in the middle. Just like you did with the pockets. Make a little hole on the top flap of your cover to close it.Pass a string doing a knot inside to keep it in place.
Make sure your string is long enough so you can go around about 3 times.Then to close it and go with the string around the button.
The last thing i do is after it is all complete i take and put some glue on the front flap as well that is going to fold up and adhere it to the accordian so when it opens and you pull it it will fan out. (does that make sense b/c i forgot to take a pic of that :( ? So in other words that part that has the flower and apple on it..adhere it to the printer paper inside as well... let it dry and then VOILA!!
This ATC was made using the Picnic Basket Kit and if you are not into ATC cards this could be great for putting those small stamps in like these and these.
If you make one please link us up...we would love to see it and as a little bonus
leave me a comment on this post and i will use the random number generator ( i love that thing ) to draw a name for this ATC holder as a Rak and send it to one lucky winner.
See you next month!
