For this set of ATCs, using recycled cereal boxes, paint, stamp, emboss, whatever you want to do to the base of the card then cut the box into the standard 2 1/2" x 3 1/2" card size. You can then embellish further with more images, words, and other small items.
Blank Page Muse stamps used -

Small gems made from plastic beads
These cards were started with old book pages torn into small pieces and glued onto the cereal box, then painted with acrylic paint, stamped with several stamps and colors of ink, the images were stamped on white cardstock and colored with Prisma colored pencils and blended with gamsol. They were then fussy cut and glued in place on the ATC. The gems were added with art glitter glue.
The quick tip is to use items you would normally toss in the trash, any type of cardboard can used to make art! go be creative!!
