ATCs. They're frequently the topic of swaps here and when I was new I wanted to try them. But first I researched. I recommend you google for sure. Get a feel for more than 1 or 2. See the creativity involved. Some people draw or paint. I can't do either so I'd call what I do "collage" but I don't put an image and a sticker. That's not creative.
The one technical rule of ATCs (Artist Trading Cards) is the size. These must be 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches. To place the size in mind - it's the standard size of a baseball or other sports trading card. I use to buy cheap packs and alter them so I at least had the size and a good thickness. I also have gotten "blanks" from Dick Blicks or craft stores like that.
The theme is 100% the senders choice on this. Try one or a few as practice. You could even wait to see your partner to make something special for them.
You may NOT rate less than a 5 for a swap here that you don't like. You rate here based on did the swap meet requirements including send date.
On the back of your ATC - it is my requirement that you put the swap title and your Swapbot name so a user is able to rate you. Feel free to look up "ATC backs" as some people love to make their swap as nice as possible. I'm providing a link where you can do some reading on the swap.
The style of this ATC is also senders choice BUT IT MUST INCLUDE A PIECE OF A BOOK PAGE. You may paint, draw, color, or collage but in the case of collage - that must include 3 other elements aside from the book page.
Ask all questions PRIOR to joining the swap. A pouch for an ATC is not required. I put mine in a sheet on 9 so I wind up having all these loose pouches/sleeves. You can put it in a pouch or a sleeve but that is not required.
Please know that as the founder of Newbie Helpers, I will always make my swaps open to new members that I've vetted as best I could. β₯
