I had the urge to make inchies Saturday night.. I also had a stack of Christmas cards Id received last year, so I combined the two and made Christmas inchies.  Then on Sunday, I turned them into the cards Ill be sending out this year.
 








I ran the cards through a printer first for the inside sentiment (Have yourself a merry little Christmas..),  then I went through the stack of old cards (and envelopes) using a 1 punch, a 7/8 punch, a small circle punch.. adding glue, glitter, stickers as I decided was needed (or as the mood hit me, take your pick).  These are the result.  No two are exactly alike, but I think I like it that way.

Comments or critique welcomed.

so cool! And the fact that they're each different is great in case two people you give them to will show them to each other.

That's a fantastic idea!  I left all my Christmas cards at my Mom's, but I might have to sneak some back to make my cards this year.  I love how different they all are, yet how similar. They look great as a set.

Thank you all..

KLKing.. pm your address and I'll mail one to you.

kunoni, I'm really flattered that you would ask, but I didn't make photos of the process. It basically was just finding elements of the old cards that I like and punching them out. Then arranging them in some pleasing manner, if it seemed something else was needed, I added a bit of glitter or a snowflake sticker.  I drew lines with metallic paint markers (or used some sliver and gold line scrapbooking stickers I already had) and stuck the inchies on with glue dots.  Like with almost every craft I do, I found that my rotary cutting mat and steel ruler came in really handy. I hope this helps.

Thanks..

This post http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=303188.0 explains it better than I ever could.  

Warning.. inchies are highly addictive.  Bet you can't make just one.

I think you could classify this as "Recycling", what's an awesome thing Smiley I've never thought that I could do something with the cards I receive
