ATCs using Food Packaging

Hello! I have a quick idea when you need ATCs to trade in a hurry! I don't know about you but I like trading art and Artist Trading Cards (ATC) are a great way to trade small works of art with people all over the world. There are quite a few FaceBook groups out there to trade ATCs, go check them out!


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 -
Kai Lana and Friends by Stephanie Eaton
Background Grunge by Pam Bray
Colored pencils
Gamsol
Acrylic paint
Tim Holtz Words
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!!
