For this swap we will be creating accordion ATC's. This will be a first for me, so I hope I can explain my vision. Each ATC will have 3 folds. When it is open you should see 4 panels (see above photo). For this swap we will be creating our works of art on the cover, plus the 4 panels that you see when it is opened. The theme is open, but the SAME theme must be present throughout this project. I would suggest adding layers to the front and back 'covers', as well as no popped up embellishments in the middle panels. This will allow your accordion ATC to lay nicely closed. Perhaps a little ribbon or twine to hold your finished product closed? Nice!

If you have any questions or if my explaination weak, don't hesitate to send me a message! I'm going to give this one a longer send deadline, as this is a bigger project.

Here are the rules:

 1 ATC for 1 partner.  ATC sizing applies: 2.5x3.5.  4.9 or higher rating for this swap.  Follow theme requirements.  No flakers allowed. If you sign up, follow through.  Mail by deadline - You WILL hear from me if you do not.  Recent 1's or 3's are a no-no.  Newbies are very welcome with a completed profile + 5 mailed swaps under your belt.  Please provide your best work of art. Slapping stickers on cardstock will not cut it folks!  Once received, be kind, rate promptly.  Don't forget to include your information on the back of your work of art.

Happy Swapping!

Those four pages inside - should they make up one image, four images, or is anything allowed as long as the theme of different images is the same?
And would you consider a four-frame comics meeting the swap description?

Aw, I was hoping for a swap of ATCs about accordions...LOL! I just kinda learned how to play ;)

Pahasiga - I am AOK with the comics. If the comic theme is the same, heck yes. I'm ok with one long image, as well.

Alexalgebra - Sorry! :)

Thanks for answers!

Should each page be ATC size or is it one normal size ATC folded to create 4 pages?

You know I'll be signing up for this one. I love your ideas!!

alexalgebra... You could do your accordion ATC with an accordion theme. That would be pretty awesome.

teresae 11/29/2010 #

Halfdeserted, terrific idea!! Thank you!

Gofeen, each panel is ATC size. When its all completed and folded together, it should be 2.5x3.5.

alexalgebra 11/30/2010 #

@halfdeserted i was considering that...ha ha!

@alexalgebra - Have you heard the band Those Darn Accordians?? They are much fun! And my newly acquired accordian-knowledge about you just made you awesomer too! Yay!

Also, this swap seems cool! I thought the musical instrument too, but this is neat also! Watching for now.

love this idea!

this seems so neat. Could there be four separate atc cards tied together like the picture above or does it have to be all connected with folds as the separator?

teresae 12/17/2010 #

DB506 - If it folds together like the picture above, I'm AOK with it, as to me that would still be accordion style. Welcome!!

@alexalgebra once you make your accordian themed accordian ATC, you can then start on your coffee table book about coffee tables.
