Round 1: SCAVENGER HUNT ATC Cards.  What can YOU do with these materials?
I know a lot of people are intimidated by ATCs and want to get started, or get some ideas.  I personally LOVE the variation that comes from people crafting for a specific theme.  This is a quick challenge to see how differently we all use the same materials.  It's kind of like "what would MacGyver do?" if he made ATCS.  Smiley

Here is your mission (should you choose to accept it):
A quick and easy SCAVENGER HUNT to create an ATC!  

Make one card, using ONLY these supplies.  No more.  You don't have to use them all, but you can't use anything NOT on the list!
-A regular, playing card (pick one of the regular 53 cards, but no fancy dolphin cards or anything)
-Red paint (fingerpaint, watercolors, acrylic, your choice of type of paint)
-A crossword puzzle (from the newspaper, a magazine, printed online, etc.)
-ONE button (any size, shape or color)
-Black Ink stamp pad...but NO stamps!
-one piece of ribbon
-a plain post-it note (any color, but no patterns)
-ONE 5-letter word.  Pick a word, ONE word and put it on the card...it can be done with a pen, ABC stamps (with your black pad only) or cut from a magazine.
-a fortune from a fortune cookie. (print one from the net if you don't have one)
-plain white printer paper.
-Aluminum foil.
-A brown paper bag.  (No words or images, just plain brown paper)

OF course, you can use these basic tools:
-glue (your choice..glue sticks, mod podge, gel medium, etc.)
-Scissors (plain only, no 'decorative edged' ones)
-paper cutter (for straight lines)
-tape
-a hole puncher
-a paintbrush

SO, NO markers, stickers, beads, thread, or anything fancy....ONLY what's on the list!  This is to show how ATCs can be made from the most basic of materials!  I REALLY tried to use stuff that everyone would have laying around the house...hopefully I gave you enough to go on!

I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!
Let's wait until tomorrow morning (FRIDAY), and then everyone can just post your finished cards in this thread!  (We'll wait and just chat for a day and post tomorrow, so we are only inspired by our own crafty brains, and not the work of each other)

This is one of those ideas that sound good in my head, so hopefully a few of you will want to play along, and not just look at me like I'm crazy!

We can keep posting them as long as people want to, just not START before tomorrow, if that makes sense.  I don't want people to base their cards on what others do...but on their own ingeniuty and imaginations!  I hope you play Catpants!

ooh curious...
Okay, questions:
black ink pad... I don't have a black one >_< I never have practical colours... I do have a purple one. And perhaps a turqoise. I guess it's too much to ask to have it "one color ink only"? Roll Eyes
one playing card: I'm in sweden, which means our playing cards are "bridge cards" I think you call 'em. I.e., they're of the A-standard rather than the B-standard, of which american cards are made... can I use cardstock to make an ATC-sized card, as long as it's not visible on the "front"?
fortune from a fortune cookie: I can't print one off the internet I suppose, or something? Smiley They're not as commonly distributed here. (okay, that's just a minor sidenote, I just have a crush on cookie fortunes)

Good questions.  Yes, a bridge card is fine, just make the whole thing ATC sized in the end.  (cardstock on the back is fine).
Printed fortune cookie saying AND printed Crossword puzzle is fine, just use white paper to try to make them look as ordinary as possible.
And, sorry, ONLY a black inkpad.  I guess I want to use stuff that most everyone would have, and black is more common than turquoise. I'm purposely limiting the color choices.
The Red paint can be watercolor, oil, acrylic, fingerpaint, etc.
