  1. My favorites are watercolor paper and canvas and surely doing your own cutting of your cards saves money but like you said if you want to experiment with different papers this is the way to go. I've been creating ATCs for six years.

  2. Thanks for making this video. I just went to your website and ordered 10 packs of the assorted papers at a great price of $1.25 per pack!

  3. If you live in a small apartment, or are nervous about cutting your own, these are a great way to start. I'd practice/learn on something else, though. If you're just starting, it's actually much cheaper in the short run to buy these rather than the standard 20" x 30" (and larger) full sheets, then cutting them, since online art supply houses only sell sheets in groups of ten. So many artists don't have a local art store of high-quality goods. Of course you can buy a tablet, which comes in a variety of sizes, and cut them. I've liked this brand for years, so these are what I began on and still often use.

    For cheaper cards, particularly for collage, I'd use a scrapbooking store. Otherwise, my favorite online place is Dick Blick. No, I don't work for them! 🙂

  4. The paper for my ATC Cards is not sturdy and begins to buckle – what would be the best package for my pasting, acrylic and mix media add ons. Thank you.
