I have been collecting...
Imagine my surprise, when I was looking at youtube videos the other day, that a video about "Toilet paper roll mini albums" was on the sidebar.
When I searched for "Toilet paper roll mini albums", there were lots and lots of videos by scrapbookers.
Just goes to show there is nothing new under the sun.
One thing I have found, though, is that these little pages are the perfect size for an ATC (so long as it is not too dimensional) So, if, unlike me you have a small number of ATCs or a set from a group, these albums are the perfect low cost way of storing them and playing with embellishments at the same time.
Some ideas I have come up with are
- use one page as a mailer for fragile atcs
- decorate an atc and both sides to make a three sided atc
- bind a set of atc holders for a series of atcs on a theme
Perhaps the main difference between artists and those who don't consider themselves artists, is that artists make things just for their beauty and don't neccesarily need them to be useful.
A friend asked me today what I was going to DO with 365 ATCs and I think that above is my answer.
If art had to be useful (other than in lifting our spirits), then this would be a serious limit to creativity.
