So I'm walking down the street today and notice all the trash on the sidewalk and gutter and I'm thinking how aweful it is that something can't be done with it. I mean, some of this stuff has great colors, textures, fonts, etc. on it so it hits me.
Like the other ATC swaps I've done the rules are really simple. 1 ATC, 1 partner. Use only trash that you find outside on the ground. Not out of your own garbage. 2.5x3.5 of course and that's it for rules.
If you're stumped at what you can make out of trash here are some suggestions. Use paper trash for origami, collage, or weaving, cut soda cans and secure them to sturdy card backing (be careful of sharp edges), consider the beauty in the mundane and trashy.
I love ATC's that are challenging and hope everyone else does to. Be creative, think outside your ATC comfort zone and have fun.
