What should in the starter bag?
- 5 backs for ATCs standard size (2 ½ X 3 ½ inches (63 mm X 89 mm) just white, out of cereal boxes, with a single color or with pattern is senders choise. They can be good handmade (so please only when you get the exact sizes) or storebought. (They should be sturdy.)
Here you can see how to cut the ATC backs by yourself ATC backs
- 5 protecion sleeves they could be out of paper or plastic. This can be storebougth or good handmade.

5 templates for the infos on the back. This is something like that Info on the back It should have at least the infos, that you can see in the picture. You can google for more inspiration and you can add also other info if you like. That can be storebought or good handmade.
20 different things to decorate an ATC this could be differnt paper embellishments like stamped / collage images, paper flowers, borders, postage stamps, emphemera, etc or non-paper embellishments like brads, charms, ribbons, buttons, etc.
5 different pens and pencils to draw on the ATC or write on the back
1 selfmade ATC, as it is a swap for beginners you might get an ATC from a person who never done an ATC before, so please don't be mean. And to all newbies, just give your best effort, don't just put stickers on it and call it done. (And I think no one should make sticker slapping.)
By chance if you have already ATCs and it's not you type of ATC you can also add pass away ATCs, but that is not necessary.
Feel free to add more, if you like. This is a swap for all who wants getting into ATC and for all who just want to expand there stash. You can send things that you have allready at home, but don't send waste. So don't send dirty or damaged items and only send things you would LOVE to receive.
