It's officially Spring! Time for butterflies!

For this swap, you will make 4 inchies for each of 2 partners--8 inchies total. Sender's choice. You can use butterfly stamps as your background, create a decorative background, follow a color scheme, use embellishments, use punches, etc. Take an artistic approach to it---please don't just stick a sticker on it and call it done; you can use a sticker, but in an artistic way.

For this swap, you will need to have a rating of at least 5...due to recent flakers in swaps I have hosted (ATCs and not inchies--inchie swappers are great) I will be checking profiles...no unexplained 1's or 3's.

F.Y.I: an inchie is a miniature work of art. An inchie measures exactly one inch square. Inchies can be made out of any material including paper and fabric, and can be hand-drawn, painted, collaged, stamped, sewn or use mixed media. If you think they are too small to make creatively, you're wrong! There are many itty-bitty things on the market that are perfect for making inchies: thin ribbons, tiny brads, stick-on rhinestones, little rubber stamps, etc. They are totally addicting!

Do they necessarily have to be embellished?? Because i see this is a Type 3 swap. Inchies can be easily flat mails isn't it? Please correct me if am wrong..am new here.

In a recent ATC swap i participated, my partner seemed to have just sent me a flat mail (easy and economical....isn't it??) though it was also a type 3 swap. I would truly appreciate if any of you help me understand this. Thanks!

@Chinnu ; Anything with a heavy craft component is a Type 3 swap, even if it can be easily mailed in a regular, flat envie...
