Work ATC Window Display

ATCs are becoming so inspirational at my job I was asked to put up a display window. I wanted to tell the history and rules of ATCs, show the cards and show the tools used to make them. Some of the ATCs were blown up to 11x17 to easily be seen. It took Dayle and I all weekend to plan and all day to put up, but it was well worth it working on our labor of love.

BLACK & WHITE section.
The first section is the black and white section from the November 8th Hallmark trade. Dayle made the pom-poms by hand and I made the paper flowers from PaperSource.

FALL section.
The second section is the fall section. I bought those cute red socks from Target and stuffed them to look like stockings. I wanted this section to have a “wintery” feel since we are coming into the holiday seasons. I also put some flitter on the branches from Jo-Ann’s for a snowy look.

Next is the girly-flowers section. We just put together all of our cards that had girls and flowers on them. Dayle wrapped tounge depressers with ribbon.

HANDMADE section.
The last section is the handmade section. All of these cards have sewing on them or made with fabric. That’s Dayle old Singer sewing machine that looks brand new!

This is my interpretation of black and white. I bought these super cheap oversized brads from Paperie Place in historic downtown Liberty, MO. I also used rub-ons, lace and puffy paint.
