Oooh I'll be beading in on our local frame shop for sure!  Thanks!

Currently I've been using :shhh priority mail boxes :shhh  I ship a lot on eBay so I've always got extras.  The cardboard is a perfect thickness and white on one side.  I watched television last night and chopped up a box.    Now I'm just waiting for some inspiration.  Wink

When I went last week to a local framing shop, they offered me a big bucket full of scraps, white & many great colours, some as big as 8.5 x 11 inches.

I came away with a grocery bag FULL of greens, browns, neutrals (including some with textures), dull metallics, blues, and even a little red.  Wow. Definitely try this!

See my blog for my current ATC's up for swap~

You can use anything...the requirement is just that is has to be
2.5 by 3.5 inches.

Thanks ! Althought it might sound out of subject, I was just wondering what the dimensions were.

Took for granted all the little things.
But now it's over,
All I can say is goodbye.

I just wanted to let you know that I've been using playing cards (so far), but since sturdiness has been emphasized so much in various threads, now I'm gluing two playing cards together. I just do a few at a time, even when I'm not making ATCs, so they're ready when I need them. Easy peasy and double the sturdiness! Wink
