ATG DISPENSER

Here's my ATG gun from a long time ago. I took the "guts" out and masked the areas with tape, spray painted it then added a sealer. I let it dry overnight, then added my rub-ons, bling, etc. If you look closely, you can see the original red color that it was. It has really been used! I use this dispenser for everything ~ it's great on ribbon! I had dropped it, cracked a piece off and thought it wouldn't stay closed anymore. It still works great. (oh ~ and to "spruce" it up a bit, to make it look good for this post, I went over it with the same rub-ons) Poor thingy, it needs an over-haul! (it goes everywhere with me)

The very first time I saw one, I told my girlfriends "there is no way I am scrapping with one of those red, ugly, big, bulky thingys"! Well, now I'm hooked. I bought this one because of the 1/4 inch tape. I love my ATG!

I love your ATG! Is it hard to use? I think I am going to decorate mine up too! You certainly inspired me to.

Holy moly, this is so super cool! I LOVE it! :-) Great job altering your ATG gun. Too funny... I thought the same thing about the ATG when I saw all the ladies using it online... I thought to myself "why do folks like that bulky, ugly thing!" lol! Later I come to find that I can't live without it! I LOVE my ATG! hehe! :-) Anywhooo... great to meet you Velma!! I love your site! I'm new to GGS, starting August. Can't wait to get started! :-) hugs, Arlene
