I love shaped ATC's, so I'm offering them again this year. This will be a monthly series where every month we do a different shaped ATC. If there are any shapes you would like to try as an ATC, please let me know in the comments section below. This month let's make a Birdhouse inspired shaped ATC.......your choice on what birdhouses may inspire you and what birdhouse shape you choose. Maybe your birdhouse is made from a shoe, or a tea pot, or a flower with a leaf for a roof for a hummingbird, or maybe it's a double decker birdhouse, or a bird condo....

Here is an example of Birdhouse shaped items that could easily be made in to an ATC:




Birdhouse Cards for Inspiration Some are even shaped.


Birdhouse ATCs

And another



An ATC is sized 2.5 x 3.5 inches. Draw out and Cut your shape on your standard ATC size base, going all the way to the edges. Then color, paint, collage, etc. your Birdhouse Shaped ATC and send to your one partner. Your ATC's can resemble any Birdhouse shape of your choice. Your ATC may be made in any direction. They may be made using any art mediums. Please no stickers. Please sign and date the back of your ATC, with your artist info. These are miniature works of art, made by you. Have fun creating them.

Please mail in a decorated envelope of some kind and include the swap name and your user info somewhere, so that you may be easily rated.
