{making art with printables old black and white} ATC pack by Cathy Frailey

Hello everyone! I'm back again with a pack of ATCs using Old Black & White Printable Paper Pack! I like this pack because it has a worn cardboard pattern to it and you can color it - or not!

The first thing I did was make my box to hold the ATCs using a template I found online:

In Photoshop, I opened the paper from the pack I wanted to use and set it as a PATTERN for the paintbucket.

Then I opened the box template and filled it with that pattern and printed onto printer cardstock. 

As you can see on the template,  it tells you where to cut and fold. I used a tape runner to put it together. You'll also notice the fold lines that are printed. I didn't mind them showing - made it looked stitched. But you can avoid this by first printing out the background you want and then printing the template onto the backside of that.

Next, start embellishing. Use paints, glitter - anything you want!

For the ATCs, there's not much instruction! I used cardboard as my base. It went well with the papers I used and it makes them chunky. 

Now just embellish!  I used glimmer paints from Canvas Corp Brands to fill in some areas. And I also used some of the cutouts that come in the pack which you'll see below!

And here's the finished pack!

I used the paints and glitter in various spots on the box and added one of the roses to the front (mounted with foam).

And inside are the ATCs! This first one, I didn't color as much - left it more monotone with a couple cutouts mounted. I just spritzed some gold onto it for some shimmer and I went around the edges of all the ATCs and box with gold wax. 

This next has more shimmery color with the paints. And I mounted a butterfly cutout and cut a separate flower to mount.

The last one has drips of paint and spatters to go along with the dotted pattern. And I mounted a couple of heart cutouts that have gold wax around the edges.

I love using this template to make boxes for ATCs, especially when trading them. And Julia's papers are so fun to create with!

I hope it inspires you to create your own pack of ATCs!
