I was wondering if anyone else on here also collected/made these. If so, would anyone be interested in doing a swap?

I would be interested in doing an ATC swap. I have posted a swap for a papercraft swap group we are starting if you would be interested in that. As for the ATC swap, just let me know when the posting will be or send directions... I'm in!!!

Yvonne~ ATC's are really alot of fun. Same size as gift cards, drivers license or baseball cards. They  are addicting. I wanted to do one for the papercraft swap, but thought I would start out more simple as there are a few newbie's to papercrafts and swaps supposed to be signing up.

I have been in many swaps.  I love to do this.  If you will pm me if you organize one, that would be great.   Do you want to do a theme swap.   I do a swap at mystic paper each month.   I mail it in.  You can even see some photos of the work they do on their website.

ive heard of these and seen some online and see that some people 'collect' them.  But what the heck do you do with them?  use them in your own papercrafting?

That is a GREAT question. What DO you do with those things? Let them stack up and clutter your craft area? LOL.

Seriously, I've been kinda interested in them, but I don't get the point. Explain!

They're like trading cards you just collect and look at, haha.

I was just wondering if you guys were still doing this...I just read about these tonight (yeah, I'm behind on the times) and thought they sounded interesting.  Before I start making any, though, I wanted to make sure that people are still making/swapping them.

I have a book that has pictures of 1,000 of these, I love them.  Actually if you can quilt a tight enough pattern you can use them as post cards.  But I just love collecting them.  I may have to try my hand at making some.  They are really cool.
