ATC Holder

Hello again,

Two posts in a day!Can you tell I am on a roll today?This is a "once in a blue moon' occurence on this blog,because the blog owner is as lazy as can be.:-)

Anyway,in my previous post I had mentioned receiving some ATCs.I think I am going to participate in more ATC swaps or just make some for myself,so I was trying to figure out a way to store them.After much googling and youtubing (yes,that's a word ...I think),I finally found a supersimple and easy tutorial.Took me not more than an hour to make this and that too because I had to dive into my cluttere craft closet and look for embellishments.So here it is, my tiny cute ATC holder

The top flap opens up and you can put ATCs inside,Right now,I have only 5 or 6 of them,but I am guessing that it will fit at least 10.Mine are all dimensional so they take much more space.I think it will store more if you have flatter ATCS.You can also use it to store your ATC blanks if you like.

The sides are accordion folded so they can stretch a little bit too.To make it a bit prettier,I glossy accented the motifs on the paper.You can't really see that in the picture.Added flowers,a bit of lace and called it done.I actually have to think about what I want to do for the closure of the flap,but for now,it seems to stay closed,so will see if I want to do anything more.

If any of you is reading this,do you think I should add some letters or some label saying that this holds ATCs?I tried to put the making memories metal lable thing on the flab but could not make up my mind whether I like it or not.Suggestions are welcome!

Now,since I am pretty proud of my photography skills lately,I have to put one more pic.Talk about being self

This is made based on the excellent tutorial by theElegantCriminal on youtube.This is her original template and its awesome.
