 Those participating will receive a themed goody bag with their charms.
(I'm very generous)

What to include with your Charms:

  •  Please individually wrap or place your charms in small zip lock bags  or ATC bags along with your name and contact info. 
  • Please design a ATC  to go along with the theme of the swap.
 ATC's are  2.5"x3.5" or 64x89mm. 
ATC's usually are made of a sturdy chipboard backing to ensure safe mailing. I like to recycle cereal and cracker boxes for ATC bases. In the past I used to score and cut each card on my paper trimmer. I went through quite a bit of blades this way! But then I discovered this die by sizzix. It's a life saver if you plan to make a lot of cards. I have also made my ATC's with painted vinyl, soda cans, fabric, .....
Craft stores carry a line of Trading card sleeves, envelopes and baggies meant to keep them safe till swapped.
Learn more and see past examples of ATC's here.
