I've become obsessed with inchies since I joined this site and there's a Beginner's Inch Swap that I will be able to join once my 1 month waiting period is over. But this swap also requires that you make ATCs and I've never made an ATC. I was a little worried about joining a swap that requires me to send an item that I've never made before (especially since I am not an artist!), so I decided to have a test-run today on making some. I have to say, it was pretty darn fun! This might be my next big obsession. Smiley

I do apologize for the blurriness of the photos. I took them with my phone because I couldn't find my camera. I'm pretty sure my husband lost it.  Angry

I decided I'd make a few cupcake ATCs. This pink one was the first. I hadn't added the words yet and it looked kind of plain to me so the idea to call it "Pretty in Pink" struck me. I'm not sure why the corners rolled up on this one, but I plain on sticking it underneath some heavy books to flatten it back out.


Well, after naming my first ATC "Pretty in Pink," I knew I'd have to go with a common theme for my next one (because I'm anal like that) so here is "Sixteen Candles."
