Inchies are fabulous little pieces of paper goodness with so many possibilities. If you're reading this blog, you either already are addicted to Inchies or you're new to Inchies and looking for ways to use them. Today I'd love to show you how inchies can unify a design.
I love squares for designing with and as you know, Inchies are 1 inch squares. These tiny squares are the perfect size to create a grid on cards. As I love squares, my favorite way to make a grid with Inchies is to have a square grid and end up withe a square card design. If you like the more traditional 4.25" x 5.5" card size best, you may want to create a grid with Inchies that is 2x3 tiles or 3x4 tiles in size.
By arranging the Inchies into a very easily unified grid, you can tie the design together. This allows you to mix it up and use all manner of stamps, paper or embellishments and any combo thereof to create a fun design.
This is a FABULOUS way to use up all those bits and pieces you have laying around from other projects and making them into one sweet project.
As you can see in the above photo, I've used tickets, brads, buttons, staples, stamping, punches, patterned paper and embellishments to decorate each of the nine Inchies a little differently. By using and Inchie to form the base of each tile, I have a unified but diverse project. Once you've created all your Inchie tiles, arrange them onto the card to see what looks best before the final adhering the of the Inchies.
Enjoy using Inchies to create with all those little bits and pieces you have laying around and create fun mix and match designs.
