The Cuttlebug Challenge this week is when given this challenge my mind said... something small.. I use to do a lot of trading of ATC's... in fact over 75 people each month... and we traded 3 cards to each gal... yikes.. I was making millions of ATC's every month... I then realized that I was not going to move onto inchies... and was going to move onto other things.. .so here is my inchie box... each little box is only 1 x 1 inch... and only 1/2 deep... and the whole little box is only 2 3/4 inches tall and that includes the flowers... which I also made from punched flowers... and stacked them one on top of the other... I used a very pretty cuttlebug folder that is one of the narrow strips to decorate the edges of the box... The small box on the left side is a box with a lid that is only 1 x 1 too.. and 1/2 deep... the flowers make it almost an inch tall.. LOL.. yeah I am crazy... but that is me..

When the box is open it looks like this... with the four little boxes to fill with all kinds of tiny little things... Actually I thought it would be a perfect box to put a few rings in, when you travel... you can put that into a secure place in your jewelry bag... The lid keeps it closed...

Okay.. so after I made this little box... I had to make a few cards... using inchies...

I started with a nice piece of paper where I had used one of the Asian weave Cuttlebug folders... and then built from there up... Cuttlebugs are always a good place to build from. It gives a nice foundation...

I used some inchie stamps from Inkadinkadoo that were all birds... adn then added some larger birds from Sparkle n sprinkle...
Some Spellbinder dies were used... and the card was fun..

A little on the shabby side for the next card...

I painted a piece of paper with my Twinkling H20's... and then ran it thru my Cuttlebug... Love that soft look it gives and yet when holding the card in your hand it much more dynamic than you see from this picture... I then took some simple flower stamps and created my inchies... and mounted on 1x1 inch squares... Wrapped up the entire kraft piece with gold thread... and then mounted onto black card...

I do like incorporating inchies into a project... and use them often... Love the look of them.. thanks for the Challenge and hope you will also take advantage of the challenge and post on the blog... at the Cuttlebug Challenge area... have fun and enjoy making your inchies...

Have a fun day...And thanks for stopping by for a visit... I am going to go ink my hands and start to play too.. Love, Light and Peace...Bonnie


  1. I love these, especially the box! I have never really worked with inchies. Might need to try them.

  2. WOW in capital letters!! That box is totally amazing. I love your cards with the inchies too. The chickadee looks so real on that card. I have a mama chickade who decided to build her nest in my hanging fuchsia basket. I guess I have to let the plant die since I can't water it. I didn't know I had a tenant until I tried to water it and she came flying out at me and began to tell me off. Oh well, it's a small price to pay to get some new chickadee babies in the neighborhood :)

  3. That is one awesome box, Bonnie!! Wow, I'd never have the patience to do something like that! You could gift that and put all kinds of goodies in it...after all, good things come in small packages!

  4. Wowza, Bonnie what a fabulous gift set! That box is amazing! Beautiful!
