A Chunky ATC!

I had some time to check out the Haunted Design House Challenge this morning, and it was such a challenge that I had to join in. The HDH team all made Chunky ATCs which I have never heard of until this week. A chunky ATC measures 3.5x2.5x1.5 and is usually made of wood. Mine is made of 10 pieces of cardboard glued together and covered with metal tape (from Home Depot). I took some other cardboard pieces covered in metal tape and cut them with my TH gear die. A clock hand from a broken clock at my parents' house seemed to fit perfectly and drove my choice of sentiment.


I asked my DH what he thought and he was speechless. I think he is still trying to figure out what ATC stands for - LOL!

I think I will make some more of these - it was awfully fun!

Hugz!
