(This is the group version of this swap - I'm also hosting a public one. Feel free to join both; the more, the merrier!)

You've gotta love inchies, itty-bitty pieces of art that they are. ♥ Inchies are 1" squares, and should be somewhat sturdy - heavy cardstock, chipboard, whatever. Check out Flickr for some gorgeous inspiration!

For this series of swaps, you will have two (2) partners and send each partner six (6) inchies - one dozen (12) inchies total. You can make each set the same, or make completely different inchies for each partner. Theme and medium are up to you - sender's choice!

No need to write any info on the back unless you're so inclined.

I suggest lightly securing your inchies to an ATC-sized cardstock blank or something, just to keep them intact in transit instead of bouncing around loose and risking damage. (I tape mine to an ATC blank with a looped-over strip of masking tape on the back and put them in an ATC sleeve. Easy to remove, but strong enough to keep them on the card until they arrive.)

My swaps are open to members in good standing - no recent ones or threes, please. Newbies are welcome as well, provided profiles are well-filled. All profiles will be checked before partners are assigned, and I will ban if need be.

PLEASE remember to include your name and the swap name with your inchies, so your partner knows who to thank and rate! Don't forget to rate your partner!

I -will- angel if need be.

Any questions or concerns - please do PM me or comment here! ♥

Thank you for letting me! ;) I love inchies, and I'm all for having a reason to make more!

Question about lightly securing the inchies for transit. Wouldn't the masking tape tear the back of the inchies if a person wanted to remove them? I've only made inchies once before and I placed them in a small zip -lock baggie. That didn't seem to work as well either. Just want to make sure they are in good shape getting to my partner...Thanks

I've never had an issue with masking tape - I find it isn't all that sticky at the best of times. :P If you can think of another way to send 'em safely, please do! (And share, so we can do the same! ;) ) I wonder if sticky-tack stuff wouldn't work...but that might stain. Hrm...

here is an idea that was posted on ATCforAll forums. :)

Ooh, thank you SO much for that link, @user2448 - I'll definitely be giving that tape method a go! :)

I've tried the tape "shelve/sleeves" and they work great! Thanks for the tip user2448!

The last inchie swap I did, I anchored them the same way I anchor my ATCs. (At least I hope it anchors well enough, no one has said otherwise yet...) But, I use photo corners on all 4 corners, or just 2 diagonally. I put the image face down. I'm curious how it ends up on the receiver's end. Maybe I should just ask! lol
