Creating inchies is fun for everyone!
This inchie swap is beginner and not-so-beginner friendly, so if you have never made an inchie or if you have made several hundered, please join in on the fun!
In this swap, you will have 2 partners and create them each 4 inchies.
2 partners x 4 inchies = 8 total inchies
The theme for this swap is open since it is to help those new to inchies gain more experience and get feedback. Also, since it is an open theme, you don't have to wait for partners to be assigned before you start working on them.
The medium for your inchie is up to you: sturdy cardstock, grunge board, fabric, chip board, polymer clay, watercolor paper or whatever strikes your fancy. Empty cereal boxes can be used as inchie blanks, too and it is a very enviornment friendly idea.
What is an inchie?
An inchie is a 1" x 1" piece of mini artwork created by you. The only requirements are the measurements and that it be sturdy. They can be painted, sewn, collaged or any combination of techniques. They should be creative. Cardstock with a sticker is NOT an inchie.
NO KNOWN FLAKERS: No 1's ever and no 3's within the last 6 months without contacting me to discuss the situation and even then, I might not let you join. Sorry.
NEWBIES WELCOME: Provided you contact me to let me know you are serious about joining.
QUALITY INCHIES: A sticker on a blank piece of cardstock does not count as an inchie. Put effort into your inchie and make some that you would like to receive.
AT LEAST: 5 completed snail mail swaps.
IT IS: an international swap, so your partner may be overseas, but inchies are low cost to ship.
I WILL: be checking profiles to ensure that no flakers join, but if you see someone sign up who is a known flaker, please contact me. I would rather ban a flaker than lose any good inchie swappers!
IF: someone winds up being flaked on, I will angel them or find another kind soul who will.
REMEMBER: we were all new to inchies once, so be kind if your swap partner is new to the craft!
PLEASE: contact me if you have any questions. I will be happy to help you in any way that I can.
