A Little Chunky ATC

If you have never tried making a Chunky ATC I highly recommend it.
 They are so much fun!
This one was created for a swap and she has already received it
so now I can share it with you all now.
The little frozen Charlotte is one I made from a cast I created
I'll be doing a tutorial for you very soon.
So keep watching!

You can get an entire box of wood blanks by simply cutting up a 2x4 .
The actual measurements are 3 1/2" so it works out perfectly.
You can even have the lumber yard cut them for you.
 Many times for free. Just have them cut them at  2 1/2"
Then your ready to paint,stain,collage and decorate till your hearts content.

Lululiz said...

Oh man, I can just see myself going into the one and only little place in the nearest town and asking them to cut a piece of wood into little bits........ thats all the confirmation they need to declare all foreigners completely doolally, LOL. I absolutely adore your chunky ATC though, and perhaps I can talk my DH into cutting me a few pieces. He already thinks I am doolally so I got nothing to lose, lol.

Jenny said...
