For a recent swap my partner wanted something to hold her ATCs. Rather than go with the standard notebook approach I decided to create something that could both hold her ATC collection and display some of her favorite pieces. The result is this ATC Display Round:


The top can showcase six ATCs while the bottom has 16 different open compartments/slots to hold other ATCs, small artwork, ephemera or small ATC supplies.

For the top I used hard trading card cases and then hot-glued some silver ribbon to act as hangers. The display spokes are staggered at different heights for a bit more interest and to keep the ATCs from bumping against each other.


The base is made up of 16 slots to hold whatever you like, here I've filled a couple of slots with eight different ATCs:


Here's a final picture of the Display Round minus all its ATCs


And just for fun, here are the six ATCs I sent with the Display Round. Clockwise from the upper left: "Rustic Russia," "Wise Old Owl,"
"Flame Practice," "Slytherin State of Mind," "The Key to Everything," and finally "Garden Glow."


The Display Round was created using two 8" wooden plaque bases. I used my Dremel and some wood glue to secure the two together with a wide dowel rod. The slots are sections of mat board from a left over framing project. For the top I again used the wide dowel rod, my Dremel and a lot of wood glue. The display pegs are sections of a thinner dowel with little wooden pot-like pieces stuck onto their ends. The entire piece was given three layers of matte black spray paint to finish it off. It looks rather plain and underwhelming but I love the practicality of the piece and it was fun taking it from concept to fully produced piece.
