Hi Everyone! While organizing/cleaning my craft room, I came across this kit I bought a few years ago. I measured it out and recreated to share with you. (The kit was from the Pine Cone company.) ATC stands for Artisan Trading Cards. They are credit card sized cards you decorate in bulk and swap with others.

The Designer Paper packs are really nice when you have projects such as these. You get a variety of coordinating paper to incorporate throughout. I used Play Date DP. So cute!

P1050403 What I used is in (). To make  the basic holder you'll need:
2 sheets DP (Play Date -I used a little of some of the other sheets too!)
2 sheets 12 x 12 card stock (in Tempting Tourquise)
2-3 coordinating card stock colors (of Whisper White, Real Red, So Saffron)
Sticky Strip
Snail Adhesive or Tombo glue
1" circle punch

With the 2 pieces of 12 x 12 cardstock cut the following:

11 " x 3" scored at 2 1/2", 3 1/4", 7", 7 3/4"
 
8 each 6" x 4" piece of cardstock to form 8 pockets. Score at 1/2", 3 1/4". Turn quarter turn, score 1/2" 
Cut out sections as shown.

Fold in pocket flaps as show. Adhere Sticky Strip and make pocket. Repeat for all pockets.
With 1" circle punch, punch opening slot on top so you can easily remove pocket contents.

With 2 sheets of DP, cut 8 belly band for each pocket. With the designer paper being double sided, you can get 4 different patterns out of 2 different sheets! (I'm on my lunch break at work…I'll get you the belly band measurements tonight!) Update: 2-5/8" x 5-1/2"

Put Sticky Strip down the backside of  7 of the pockets. The pocket that attaches to the holder needs extra Sticky Strip. Make a square..see picture.

P1050401 

Remove sticky strip and layer pockets on top of each other, saving the pocket with the adhesive around the edges to be the last one on the bottom. This one will be attached to the holder (11 x 3 piece)

Ready to decorate! Lots of surfaces to incorporate your theme.

I think a video will help us with this one. Look for it soon! Happy Crafting! ~ Dee
