Thanks for all your well wishes ~ I'm feeling better...still a bit stiff but definitely better than I felt this weekend.
Here is the template for the ATC holder!
This template is created on an 8 1/2" x 11 sheet of cardstock. The front and backs of the box measure 3" x 4" to give you a size guide.
As you can see it has an optional window. If I'm making the window version I usually print the template on a sturdy piece of cardstock then add an extra layer of cardstock "padding" before I cut the window out. This just gives the finished box a bit more stability and durability. After I cut out the window I apply adhesive and insert a small piece of acetate* over the opening. You may then fold and glue the box as you normally would.
*GREEN TIP ~ Recycle acetate packaging from store bought items ~ it's usually much thicker and makes great window materials!!
Window - less ATC Holder
as you can see ~ with a 1" width you're able to fit several ATC's into the finished box!
Window ATC Holder
As you can see these ATC holders are quick and easy to make,
can be as simple or as elaborately decorated as desired
they would make great gifts for friends, hostess gifts or for your own collection!
Tomorrow's technique is an old favorite that I just love :)
