No Glue ATC

Launch gallery slideshow

Swap Coordinator:MissKoolAid (contact)
Swap categories: Artist Trading Card (ATC) 
Number of people in swap:25
Last day to signup/drop:January 31, 2007
Date items must be sent by:February 15, 2007
Number of swap partners:3

In this swap, you have 3 partners and you will make 3 ATCs total. You send 1 to each of your partners. The only rule is, you can't use glue to assemble them. Use eyelets, brads, staples, thread and needle, paper clips... get creative as long as it's not sticky! And no stickers to embellish since they have glue on them.

Standard ATC size is 2.5 x 3.5 inches. Less than half an inch thick. Can be paper or fabric or even cork, as long as it follows the size requirements. And remember NO GLUE!

This is my first time hosting and I will check profiles. If you have more than one "no send", I will contact you before deciding if you stay in or not. This is INTERNATIONAL since ATCs aren't usually expensive to mail. If you have any questions, don't be shy...

To clarify: Does the "no glue" rule include fusible adhesives (like Wonder-Under or Heat-N-Bond)? I would assume that it does. Which leads to the further question-- if fusible adhesives are disallowed, does that also disallow fusible fibers (like Angelina) and other techniques that "melt" things together to fuse them?

MissKoolAid 12/27/2006 #

The fusible adhesives are definitely a NO. I have never used or even seen fusible fibers so for that one, I will let you decide if it should be considered like an adhesive or not. I don't want to say no to something I don't know.

so I sand a simple hand drawn card?

danit 12/27/2006 #

I ment... I can sand...

MissKoolAid 12/28/2006 #

You have to attach at least one thing to the card and it can't be glued on it. Be creative people!

oh yeah, this is gonna be fun! susi

pickle 01/27/2007 #

are we supposed to leave the card blank? do we send a note with it/in it?

MissKoolAid 01/27/2007 #

Pickle, it's not a greeting card. It's an Artist Trading Card. It measure 2.5" x 3.5". It pretty much looks like a sport's trading card, the kind that kids collect. The ides here is to decorate it with papers, fabric, ribbons or any kind of embellishement but for this swap nothing with glue. Which means no stickers, no glitter glue or anything else that could be seen as an adhesive or glue. If you have more questions, feel free to contact me privately.

can I use fabric that I sew then, I will assume, Yes.

MissKoolAid 01/29/2007 #

Colleen, fabric ATCs are accepted in this swap. The idea is to be creative without glue.

Susi 02/ 3/2007 #

I just finished my three cards.. I guess i wasn't that adventurous, because i used staple only, but I like how they turned out! I think I'll make more, just for me! Maybe to swap out too!! Susi
