I think more people should know about Inchies and Twinchies. Discover what they are below.

If more people knew about them, then more people would be getting the fun from from making these cute and tiny works of art
I showed you how to make Inchies before. The difference between Inchies and Twinchies is - one inch (or 2.5cms!) You could really call them "Two Inches" instead of their nickname.Twinchie sounds better to me though. Do you agree?
I made a handmade greeting card with my latest one and will show you how I did that.

Here's What To Do:
Of course, the possibilities with making these little gems are really rather endless. You could use any way you like to decorate your embellishment, to suit any occasion.
How nice would this be if you used a heart stamp for Valentine's Day, or a cake for a birthday card, or some cute little booties for a baby card?
Imagine twelve of them, all decorated differently, in a pretty frame! You could use some of the ideas on the Inchies page on them as well.
Or why not organise a swap with your scrapbooking and cardmaking friends to get even more ideas for how to decorate these cuties? They would be so easy to send in the post so you could swap with friends from far away or even internationally.
TIP: Just so you know, there are also embellishments known as Rinchies. These are small round pieces of art that are 1" (2.5cm) in diameter. They are also called Artist Trading Coins. They kind of go with Artist Trading Cards or ATCs. All are easy to make into pieces for swapping or just to fit in with a project you want to create.
Have fun making your own cute little 1" or 2" pieces of art.
And if you make some, please do tell me about them and show them off.
Do you have a piece of altered art you have created? I'd love to see it.
Check out some special Boards on Pintrest. For example, I found a board with over 100 Inchie and Twinchie ideas.
If you want some Rinchie Ideas, there are plenty on that Pintrest board too.
Isn't it amazing how creative people can be? Why not try your own hand at making some of these? You might find a new crafting love!
