*International shipping is required*
*DC #s are not required but you will have to resend if the inchie set is not received*

Everyone is encouraged to join. If you can contain your art to a square of 1 inch, you can make an inchie! With that said, please make your inchies with love and care. Whether you paint, print, stamp, color, draw, ink or embellish, spend a bit of time and energy making the inchies you send to the best of your ability. Everyone you claim should receive inchies you are proud to have made and would love to receive.

For anyone who is not sure what and inchie is or how to go about making one, here is a great post on the papercraft forums by phizzychick (who makes amazing inchies!) http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=303188.0

The bonus is we can post these as cards or letters and avoid high postage charges so international swapping won't be too costly. Plus we won't be requiring a DC for this swap, but you MUST remake and resend if your inchies don't turn up. This is a no extras swap, if you want to send more than just the inchies (like maybe an ATC), then please do this as a personal swap thanks.

You will have the choice of 1 or 2 or 3 partners and you will be required to send 8 inchies to each partner. You will have about 3 weeks crafting time.
It will be necessary to list 5 themes on your questionnaire, Id like to suggest some themes that you might use that seem to be popular, but if you have your own ideas that that is fine too.


(Thank you to kimchery/nilmerg and any other previous inchies organizers  from whom I've borrowed most of this information/questionnaire.)  

1. Single color or color spectrum
2. Nature trees/leaves/flowers etc
3. Crafty items - scissors/thread/tape measure/knitting needles etc.
4. Monsters/robots/aliens
5. Zentangles and patterns
6. Hearts, stars and stripes
7. A favorite TV show, Movie or book
8. Animals (or a specific animal cats / pigs etc)
9. Food & beverages veggies, coffee, fruits, cupcakes
10. Artists Choice (usually inspired by your wist/pinterest)

I reserve the right to deny participation to a swapper with history of poor communication and/or very late sending.
