Sent in my questionnaire!! Excited to get partners and start on inchies!! I have never done an inchie or an ATC so this is my kick in the butt to try my hand at em. Not as nervous knowing that my partners haven't tried em or are just beginning too.

Oooh! I'm so signing up for this! Just made my first inchies this past week for the matchbook swap and I definitely need to up my game since papercrafts are totally new to me.

*fills out questionnaire right now*  Cheesy

I can't wait to get started on my inchies.

Something that helps me when I'm making inchies or ATCs, I cut out a square/rectangle just a touch larger than an inchie/ATC (2 different objects!) out of a larger piece of cardboard and use that as a viewer to frame out pieces to cut for the inchie or ATC.

Have fun!

The first round I used pre-cut ATCs, bristol board I think, and cut my 1" square punch inchies out of that.  I find that punch to be INVALUABLE when it came to inchie making.  They're usually about $10, but with a good 40-50% off coupon......worth it. 

I used fabric for bases for other ones, too...it does just depend on what your partner plans to do with them, if they need to be framed, otherwise 3-d is cool too!

I thought inchies would be hard, but honestly I'm more scared for the ATC!

Yeah another inchie swap! I just finnished making my first inchies for the IMT Round 2. I can't draw worht a hoot but I like cutting bits out and glueing them together to make something cool. Adding buttosn is fun and I'll take any excuse to add a pair of googly eyes. Smiley   

I tend to use paint samples as backgrounds. They are free and available in a wide range of colors and sometimes textures.   If you don't happen to have colored cardstock around you could also just decorate normal paper and then glue it onto a cut out from a cardboard box of some sort.

Sign ups for this close right around the time I have send outs for two other swaps so that works out perfectly for me Smiley

Ok, finally caught up with the sign ups. There is so much virtual paper work involved in organising a swap! But I love that every time I log into craftster I have mail!!!!

I really like the idea of using paint samples. Might have to take a trip to the hardware tomorrow! I might make a few inchies for myself before sign ups end.

The first round I used pre-cut ATCs, bristol board I think, and cut my 1" square punch inchies out of that.  I find that punch to be INVALUABLE when it came to inchie making.  They're usually about $10, but with a good 40-50% off coupon......worth it. 

I want an inchie punch  Sad mmmm since the AU$ is so strong at the moment, I think I may head over to US ebay or a craft shop, see how much it would cost to ship on over! I just use scisors and a Ruler to cut my inchies, ah well, it works!

Ooh, never made inchies before, think I will give this one a go!

A friend has asked me to cut out inchie squares for her before, and I found the easiest method to do a heap at once is to use a gilloutine or photo cutter. They are generally marked with one inch segments. Makes life so easy.

I have 2 1-inch punches that I got at www.stampington.com. That is the shopping site for all of the Somerset magazines. One doesn't work so well so I am glad I have two. And I agree - they are invaluable for inchie-making on a grand scale.

And I got my tax refund yesterday (yahoo!) so I splurged on some fancy paper yesterday at the art supply store.

For ATC's, you can use playing cards and cover them. Or use them to trace on cereal boxes or other thin card board. This swap is great because you really don't need to buy anything.
