Inch by Inch
I've been playing around with some inchie stamps. This is a candy box I made for Staci and Debbie as a thank you for being so good to me on National Scapbooking Day. I found some little treat boxes at Michaels. I wanted to use the inchie stamps to decorate the outside of the box but unfortunately the box had a glossy finish on the outside which I find hard to stamp on. So I just covered it with paper. Used my new corner punches for the top of the box. Here's a couple of other views of the project:
I made a similar treat box for my Aunt Hazel - tucking the wrapped candies into a bobbin box that I hope as a quilter she can make good use of.
I found another inchie set at JoAnn's and one from PaperTrey stamps that I'll be playing with soon. Just thinking that they're very versitle - they can make such cute embellishments or can also be part of a bigger focal on a card. Here's a cute card pattern I found on Splitcoast - love the clean style - and the way it makes good use of the inchies. Plus it's a citrus color which I seem to be really drawn to these days. More on that tomorrow.
