    Folded Art ATC Tutorial

    Back in September I visited Longwood Gardens.  While there they gave us an accordion type map with a thin piece of cardstock on the back and front.  As soon as I saw it I thought “This would make a great atc.” I figured two atcs would make up the front and back cover and the piece of paper could have art on both sides. Below are pictures of the map.

    This past week I created a few. They are fairly easy to create. They just take a little more time since there is a lot more art to do. When folded they measure 2.5 x 3.5 inches and when open they measure 9.5 x 10.5 inches.

    Here are two Folded Art ATCs when folded together.

    Below is the tutorial for making your own Folded Art ATCs. If you do create some I would be very interested in seeing them. You can leave the link to them in the comments section or email me the link.
