Title Framed Inchies
Description What to do with all those inchies? I have framed 100 inchies received from an inchie swap. The photo doesn't do the amazing art justice - the inchies look so colorful and amazing together.
*I added info about how I framed the inchies to the comments below.

Thanks for all the nice comments. I have been asked quite a bit about the framing.
Here is what I did:

I framed them very simply. The frame is a 12"x12" frame I picked up at Michael's (on sale $5-6). It is a "scrapbook page frame", black metal with glass. It has little clips on the back, so it is easy to open, close and hang. There is plenty of depth in the frame to allow for embellished inchies (shells, buttons, etc..).

I purchased some black 12"x12" cardstock paper to use as the backing. I used little scotch tape loops to attach the inchies to the cardstock.

After I decided on my arrangement, I started attaching the inchies - working from the corners towards the center and spacing them as evenly as possible. If you are framing 100 inchies in a 12"x12" frame, there is about 1/8" space between them. I didn't measure the space, I just adjusted as I went.

That's about it.
Hope the info helps!
