"Made this wallet ATC card holder for Graphic 45 CHA winter 2014. Made with the gorgeous Sweet Sentiments paper collection! So much fun fussy cutting the images and most of the images on the ATC`s are pop up with pop dots ( 3D foam) and covered with Claudine Hellmuth multi matte. Never made ATCs before and I started out using up my fussy cut left overs but this was so much fun so I could not stop making them, lol. Then I found out I needed something to store them in and came up with this wallet book. The pages are expandable So the dimensional ATC will fit. Saved the frames when I cut out the images and used some of them here on this ATC`s. Here is the front of the wallet book. Alphabet die from Accucutcraft. It measure 9 1/2 x 4 1/8. " -Anne
Spine and backside of the book. All made from chipboard and glued together with Tyvek envelope hinges.
Inside the wallet there is place for 24 ATCs. The book closes with a magnet hidden under the rose flower.
All folded out and made some seambinding bows for decoration.
Pictures of the ATC`s.
Made some for Easter and Valentine's.
And Christmas with diamond stickles.
Some more! Fun, fun, fun!
Here is another wonderful treat that came with this amazing ATC box when we brought it with us to CHA! Anne included this note in her ATC wallet she sent for our CHA Winter display. We did just as she asked, we passed each and every ATC out, each bringing a smile and joy to every recipient! So sweet!
