  • Hi Everyone!

    Hello, my names Jeannette and I'm from Manchester. I enjoy making Cards, ATC's and Fat Pages. I'm going to be trying my hand at Scrap Book Pages in the very near future but need to get rid of my backlog first (If I ever can, LOL) I look forward to chatting and making some new friends.

    Happy Crafting

                \here's an explanation, but if you have a look at my Blog Pages you'll see some examples.

                A Fat Page is very like an ATC, with a few differences.

                The size is 4" x 4", and is made from Sturdy Card. It can be made to a specific theme or anything in general. You decorate and embellish the front of the card leaving half an inch to the left hand side, this is for holes to be punched by the person who receives it. The back is decorated as well, but you don't need to be as extravagant as the front. The back of the Fat Page will also have the details just like an ATC and will be seen when the page is turned.

                When you have collected enough pages of a certain theme you can then turn your pages into a Fat Page Book.

                Create a Front and Back Cover from Sturdy Card or Mount Board, size 4 1/2" x 4 1/2", decorate and embellish according to the theme or to your own taste. Punch holes in your pages (2 or 3)and bind by either Ribbon or Book Rings. 2" Book Rings work best as books can be quite FAT depending on the number of pages or the embellishments on the page.

                Fat Pages are swapped or given to someone just like ATC's.

                  Hello and to the forum from another paper crafter!! I have swapped quiet alot of ATCs but I have seen fat pages being mention regularly on some of the blogs I visit. They sound like fun! If I ever get any life back from my business I think I will get involved with them. Welcome to the forum, I look forward to chatting with you and seeing some of you Fat pages!
