Craftster members Sarcastra and Avesthel have each provided templates for these tiny houses (thanks ladies Kiss)!
Sarcastra's Template
Avesthel's Template
Obviously, you also have the option of drafting your own template if you like that sort of thing Cheesy  
There are many sources of inspiration available online, and I would encourage you to check them out if you need more ideas.  
Although this swap is 'artists choice', please send each person in your group an inchie house you would be proud to receive!  
Let's make sure we build a bunch of high quality inchie houses!  

Other housekeeping details and what-nots
1.  I reserve the right to refuse anyone who has a history of multiple instances of poor communication and/or late sending.
2.  You need to make at least one post in this thread.
3.  Check the swap thread regularly. Feel free to exchange tips and techniques related to the construction of inchie houses, post teaser pictures of your crafting environment, solicit opinions about your work-in-progress, etc.  Any crafty chat that relates to inchie houses and crafting for your partners is welcome! Cheesy
4.  For this swap, USPS tracking numbers and mailing receipts are not required, but you will have to resend if your inchie house does not arrive at its destination.
