I've taken part in the old box postcard swap and love the idea of doing an atc series.

What you will need to do is make an ATC from an old box - some examples are; food packaging, toy boxes, record sleeves, office supplies, etc. You just need to cut the box to the right size, if you then wish to embellish it further then that is up to you - however it is not required.

For this swap you will be making 3 ATCs for 3 people - so you'll make and receive 9 cards in total!

To find out more about ATCs please go here

Please only join if you have a rating of 4 or over. If you feel you have been rated unfairly in the past please contact me.

Newbies with no ratings are welcome to join - however please make sure your profile is filled out before joining.

This is an international swap.

Happy swapping!

Oh my gosh! nI just went crazy getting old food boxes etc to start cutting for this swap! We'll have to have a 2 & 3 & 4..... in order to use up all the boxes I have!. I like the idea of having 9 cards in return so I can fill a whole page. Thanks for the great idea! susi

LOL, I cut out over 40 old box ATCs this morning! So, we'lll have to do a 2 and 3 and maybe 4! susi

are these old boxes as in age or old boxes as in no longer needed?

Susi 01/29/2007 #

any old (not old as in age, but used) boxes, food boxes, cereal boxes, kleenex boxes, anything goes! i like to embellish with stickers sometimes if they are kinda boring. One question though, it's getting awful close to the deadline for signing up, and we have no partners... the owner has to do that now, I wonder if she knows that? Maybe I'll send a message, because i am ready to swap! susi

Hi! Sorry for the delayed response - my internet was cut off for a while.

You can use any old/new box as Susi described.

Partners will be issued on the 31s Jan - Contain yourself lol :D

nc001 02/ 9/2007 #

Kathy, got yours today. Thank you. The extra one was a lovely bonus.

I received my old bos atcs from Margot today, and they are great! I love the little folder that you put them them in, and the punches are so cool, the ones in the middle plus to make the pull oening on the top. I've seen the punches with the designs inside a circle in uk SCRAPPING AND CARD MAGAZINE, but we don't have them here. Is there a place I can order them from, or would you like to do a personal trade for a couple of punches like that. I have a ton of ATC stuff, plus a whole bunch of tiny punches that I don't ever use. There also are punches at the Dollar store that I can get, I just got a fleur de lise and some cherubs the othwr day. What do you think? Are interested? Just email me or send me a message susi [email protected]
