Hi, crafty friends! Today we are welcoming back Ann Taylor as our Guest Designer. Ann is a Certified Educator, and you can catch her every now and then hosting card making workshops on Saturdays.
Today, Ann will share how to create two fabulous ATC Pockets. ATC stands for Artist Trading Cards. So let's hear it from Ann.
Get to know Ann
Hi! My name is Ann Taylor. I graduated from the Altenew Educator Certification Class in 2021. I'm so proud to be an Educator and able to showcase Altenew's versatile products. I have been crafting since I was a young girl. I love taking different items and putting them together. I think that's why I enjoy making multimedia projects. When I'm not working on projects, I'm making cards.
I'm so excited to be a guest designer for the Mixed Media blog today! I've been working on ATCs (Artist Trading Cards) lately, and I wanted a place to store them. So, after some research, I modified a sample from the internet. This is a quick and simple DIY project.
Ann's ATC Pockets
Here's how to create a holder for your ATCs:
- Cut a piece of cardstock to 3″ x 11″
- On the 11″ side score at 2½”, 3¼”, 7″, and 7¾” (set aside).
- Cut 8 pieces of colored cardstock to 4″ x 6″; these will form the pockets.
- On the 6″ side, score at 2¾” and 5½”.
- Quarter turn the cardstock and score at ½”.
- Trim all 6 pieces of colored cardstock as in the picture.
- Burnish all scored pieces.
- Use super sticky tape to adhere the edges of pocket cardstock.
- Affix sticky tape to the front of the pocket as shown.
- Stack all 8 pockets together
- Add super sticky tape to the back pocket.
- Attach pocket stack to the long scored piece.
- Decorate the holder as desired.
- Add Velcro or magnets for holder closure.
- Put ATCs in pockets.
Each ATC is a miniature work of art. FYI, Aan ATC measures 21/2″ x 31/2″. Now I have a place to organize and store my one-layer ATCs!
