some atc's i made for a swap

this was a challenge atc swap to use fun foam on the atc well I did use funfoam but not in an ordinary way :)

cut a piece of fun foam to about the size your want

get out a rubber stamp and ink pad set aside

heat the fun foam with a heat gun flipping it over several times then while you are heating it up this just takes seconds ink up your stamp turn off your heat gun and push the stamp into the fun foam press really hard

here are the results I got

I love this technique and had a lot of fun making my atc's for this challenge

handmade purse from trash

Humble beginnings
I lined the inside with some carboard covered with material and glued a mirror to the lid
then I covered the outside with fabric. embellished, added a hinge and valcor closeure and a handle
