Christmas Recycled Atc's

Christmas Recycled Atc's
Swap Coordinator:AlteredArtFreak (contact)
Swap categories: Challenges  Crafts  Artist Trading Card (ATC) 
Number of people in swap:43
Last day to signup/drop:January 15, 2008
Date items must be sent by:January 31, 2008
Number of swap partners:3

Lets re-use all that stuff we would normally throw away and create some amazing atc's. You can use the cardboard from box's for a base, or wrapping paper, christmas cards for a background, tensil for embellishment...the choices are limitless and it's all up to your imagination...plus you get to help keep all that garbage from going into the landfill.

Your atc's do not have to be made entirely out of recycled materials but must include at least one item on each card that is recycled from your left over Christmas.

You will have 3 partners and create 2 atc's for each partner for a total of 6 atc's.

To help protect all honest swappers and to weed out the flakes I am only allowing those with a 4.7 or better rating to join. If you have had any no sends within the last 3 months you will not be allowed to join either. Newbies have time to join another swap and get a rating before sign up for this swap is over.

This is an international swap.

With that said...Have Fun, Be Creative and Help Mother Earth.

Great! Right up my street. The previous swap I was in for recycled ATCs got cancelled, so I'm really pleased you've organised this one.

I think it will be so much fun to see what everyone creates with all their Christmas "trash" treasures. Thanks for joining! Im sure it will be a BLAST!!!

i love this idea. i'm new to the atc thing, so this seems much easier to me, no hunting for things i think will work, and ending up buying three times as much as i could possibly need.

This is an EXCELLENT idea for a swap! The whole idea of making art from "throw aways" is really intriguing. I just heard about a local group who swaps "recycled art" - art that's made from other people's junk, and this seems to go hand in hand with that concept. I'm in. (plus, it won't happen until after the holidays, so it'll be something to look forward to when that post-christmas crash hits).

Great! I think this swap will be a Huge success and Im already thinking of some more recycled card swaps to host.

Thanks everyone who have already joined and go out and tell your friends and lets shoot for the top ten! That would be a lot of recycled trash :)

Hi I and a couple of friends have just started a new group that is all about art in many different styles and would love for anyone interested to join. Here is the link http://groups.yahoo.com/group/artistic_divas/ if you want to check it out.

Oh BOO - wish I had found this sooner. I LOVE THIS IDEA. So sorry I can't play.

What size should the ATC's be? In a previous ATC swap, each card was (2.5 x 3.5)... is that the standard size?

AlteredArtFreak 01/15/2008 #

Yes that is the standard size of atc's.


AlteredArtFreak 01/16/2008 #
