What are Fat Pages? I hear you ask.

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.
