Dustin off my ATC's

Recently a friend told me I needed to get my ATC's out of the binder I kept them in and out where I could see them everyday and be inspired. So I had this little wire thing sitting on the shelf for years holding little baubles I had received and made. I had hubby mount it on the wall and hung some of my favorite ATC's on it. The little curlies on the bottom use to be the stand but now I can hang more stuff on them. I think I am going to make one more and dedicate it just to ATC's
Still that was just not enough display space so I wound wire around a paint bottle then flattened it and stretched it out. The I attached some wire leafs that I had recived as a bow on a Christmas gift to the top.

It just makes me feel so good to sit at my desk and see them. Do you see one you made? :) This really makes me want to get into trading some ATC's again ... Want to do a One for One just email me :)

Such a neat way to show off those little pieces of art. In our group, we all decided they needed to be seen also. Great idea!

I love this idea and they look great. I still love going through my atc books and pulling them out and touching them and ohhhhhhh...they are so fabulous.

What beautiful ways to display your treasures!

I have a bunch in a big poster size display thing that was originally meant for baseball cards, but it's not exactly pretty.

Inka, I think your going to need a tree about the size of a Christmas tree to display all your awesome ATC's, LOL

I'm loving your display for ATCs. I have 3 favorite french ATCs mounted and framed in my bathroom (we have it decorated like Paris.) I think I might have to try the spiral wire hanger thingie.

I'd love to trade a couple ATCs. just holler and we'll do that. I'm painting poppies right now as well as doing some collaged ATCs. I also joined a forums board where you can trade ATCs and join swaps. Come join me. http://www.atcsforall.com . I'm contessakris over there...
