atc display

atc display

i've been trading actively at the best forum for atcs called atcards and it's quite addictive to join in on swaps and trading one on one with people around the world. this also means i have a growing collection of atcs!

i've been storing them in little atc sized books with clear pockets in them. they hold 40 cards. i got them at a dollar store in japantown called ichiban kan. but when i moved up to the attic room in my house i wanted an atc gallery! since there's a lot more room in the attic, but slanted ceilings. so i decided to do a clothesline type of display. i just used string and pushpins to anchor the string, then got a lot of airplane clips at the dollar store.

i think it's such an easy, inexpensive way to display them - no frames needed.

What a great display idea--and I love the little airplanes!

I love it! What a great idea. The cards look great hanging on the clothesline. You have tons of those cards, aren't you glad you can see them now? :)
