Want to have some big fun with something small?
I love creating miniatures and usually work with quilling or polymer clay. However, 1" x 1" squares of paper [inchies] can make fabulous pieces of art. I keep a photo folder on my computer of colorful, creative and amazingly small collages that give me instant inspiration.
I was going to list my favorites bookmark links, but if you Google inchies, inchie cards, inchie blogs (you get the idea) there are a ton of links to get you started. The techniques, possibilities and ideas are endless. Enjoy!
If you are already into inchie art, check out the neat supplies at Stampington & Company :o)
Have a safe and fun 4th of July holiday!
[Photo: I participated in two inchie swaps recently, collecting inchies from over 48 crafters. I embellished the tag with a set of patriotic inchies that were a favorite.]

From the Disney site!
These are really cute and easy ideas and the phrases can be used in many ways. I'm thinking of covering a can of cashews with the "I'm nuts about you!" saying.
