Alpha Stamps just came out with a new ATC envelope folder, so naturally, I had to give it a spin. I chose to let the cardboard of the holder be a part of the design, so I pulled out some of my favorite old scrapbook paper and gave it a bee theme. Here's the front when it's closed:


There's a slit in the back for that tab to go in, but for this piece I decided to ignore that and use a ribbon for closure. The butterfly is attached to the ribbon with double stick tape. The ribbon just slides off when you want to open it. (Who can ever re-tie the perfect bow?)


Inside, there are tabs perfect for holding an ATC. Even though this is bee themed, I just couldn't resist adding a few rogue ladybugs surrounding that card.


I added a little craft paper brown bag to the lower flap, so it also holds an ATC, this one with a tab on it so it's easy to extract.


I think this is a fun way to store (or trade) ATCs. Smiley

I love it!  I think the ladybugs offer a great counterpoint to the bees.  Like the pop of red, actually accentuates the black and gold theme.  Smiley

Art upon art! I agree with Mistress Jennie about the lady bugs and now am enjoying thinking of rebellious and irreverent lady bugs!
