ATC Magnets


Did you know Xyron makes a magnet tape that’s as simple as can be? I didn’t! It’s on a roll, just like Scotch tape… no machine required. When a roll of it showed up in my mailbox a few weeks ago I knew just what I wanted to make ~ ATC magnets.  Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) are the same size as baseball cards.  Not a lot of real estate, but you might be surprised how much you can fit in that small space.

I loved pulling out my stash of magazine clippings and assembling these small collages. I added some favorite stamps from Stampers Anonymous and Paper Artsy, Distress Markers and Distress Inks, acrylic paints and glazing medium, and a few different washi tapes.

Thanks for visiting!

  11. I had no idea about that tape…so many possibilities! You are so right- ATC’s are bigger than many think when you are collaging them! These magnets rock!

  12. I never knew that either! How fabulous is that? Gorgeous ATC’s! Hugs, Sandra

  13. I’ve never had much success with magnet sold on a roll so I might need to investigate this Marjie.
    They would look amazing in any part of the home holding notes and reminders for daily lives.

  14. Four fantastic ATCs, all the details are gorgeous.

  15. How can I find your older blogposts Marjie? I don’t understand how I can find your blog again in my bloglist, when you post new creations.
    Can you help me out?
    Thanks in advance! Kind regards, Alie 🙂

  20. Hi Marjie,
    I love these. I bet they would look awesome on a refridgerator. The detail is awesome for such a small area.
