I knew I wanted to make my entry out of paper and when I read more I instantly thought of inchies. But then I measured how my plan would turn out and it would have been HUGE! So instead I divided them into quarters. In hindsight, inchies would have been way easier than these small wee things, but I'm finished...all 602 tiny squares! Wee! Cheesy

I wanted to represent several of the crafts that Mama does, and here is how it turned out

The crafty background with all the crafty nick-knacks


Making the quarter inch 'pixels' in the various colours...


Cutting and inking the edges...


All the designs drawn on and all ready to assemble...


Planning the background...


This project was so much fun! Thanks for looking!

Extremely amazing! I love how much work you put into this, and that each "quinchi" has its own design on it!

So if these are each a half inch square, does that make them bigger than a square centimeter? My metric is rusty...2.54 cm to an inch? I should just cut an inchie up and measure it lol.

Yeah, they're about a cm I guess. As you can see by some of the squares, I'm never that precise with my cutting. I guess it gives them character Wink Cheesy
