Oh my God, you guys, these are so addictive! Everyone's saying so, but you don't really believe it unless you spend all your time either making inchies or thinking of what inchies you're going to make next Grin Yes, this is how I spent the past two days. Also, you know how sometimes you make something and you have these scraps, and you manage to force yourself to throw them away despite your terrible hoarding nature because you convince yourself they're too small to be used in anything? Yeah, inchies totally destroy that particular argument, good luck with keeping your drawers clean after that.


All of them together!


These are all made with images I found online, except the musical one and the 'I am an inchie' one (which amuses me far more than it should).


All hand-drawn (except the first one, that's a sticker). The last one is a piece from a page of my math notes Grin


The sun and the orange are stamps I colored. (Anyone else who immediately thinks of Rodney McKay whenever they see, hear, or think the word 'citrus', raise your hand.)

For the construction of those inchies, watercolors, gouache, biro, markers, ink, stamps, scissors, buttons, brads, paper, stickers, and lots of glue, along with two other kinds of adhesives, were used. Possible damage may have occurred to x-acto knives in the process.

I glued archival white paper to the inside of a cereal box then cut out a BUNC of 1" squares. I'm now ready to take the plunge down the slippery slope that is Inchies. I haven't even made one yet and I'm totally addicted.  Roll Eyes

I can only hope that mine turn out half as good as yours have. Your Inchies are great! Awesome composition especially for something so small! I like them all so much I can't even pick out a favorite lol.

I don't fit in a box, round hole, or any slot that you want to put me in. I am unique, intelligent, funny, passionate, beautiful, spirited and kind. I'm a lover, not a fighter, but will fight when pushed too far. I'm a puzzle it might take you years to figure out, if you can. I am an enigma.

Great inchies and you are so right about the scraps that can no longer be thrown out.  I love your top row especially.

Thanks, guys!

malmow, thanks, that's such a huge compliment considering some of the inchies that have been posted here!

smittenheart, you can include inchies on all sorts of paper projects, like ATCs, cards, scrapbooking, decorate random stuff. But I mostly make them for the fun of it Grin

Bewara, I wish you the best of luck. Just know that there is no turning back after that!!!
