    Starry Starry Inchies!

    Let's swap starry inchies! I’m thinking saturated mixed-media, fantastic fabric, and yummy collages, and hand-drawn loveliness! Any media is fine, as long as there is a star on the inchie!

    Rules:
    --Inchies = 1" square pieces of art!
    --Please use something sturdy (cardstock, chipboard, heavy watercolor paper) for your base.
    --Make sure these babies are really 1” x 1”!!
    --Squeeze (at least) your username on the back of your inchies.
    --Bulky embellishments = extra postage. "Bulky" includes brads and beads - they cost an extra 20 cents to mail (each). That means if you send in nine bulky inchies and I swap them out to nine different people, it costs $1.80 in extra postage for me to mail them out. If you send in bulky inchies, please send in extra stamps.
    --PM me for my address when you're ready to mail.
    --No inchies sent + no communication = neutral iTrader.


    Mailing:

    Protecting your inchies in plastic baggies or sleeves is a good idea! So is taping or stapling to keep them from bunching up. Sending loose inchies can mean that I would end up paying postage due for non-machinable mail. You inchies might take longer to arrive or they might be sent back to you if the post office figures you've got postage due.

    I usually mail inchies in an ATC sleeve or plastic baggie, with staples between the inchies to keep them in place. Another good way to keep the inchies from bunching up is photo corners.

    US participants: Include a self-addressed envelope for returns. Put 42 cents on your return envie.

    International participants: Include a mailing label (or a SAE, if it won't bump up your mailing costs). Four options for postage:
    --Send US postage: 72 cents from Canada or Mexico, 94 cents from anywhere else.
    --Send Canadian, UK, or Australian postage equal to what it takes to send your envie to me. I can use this postage in swaps that I participate in.
    --Send a well-concealed US dollar.
    --PM me if none of the above works for you!

    Please allow enough time for your inchies to get to me by the due date. International mail can take two weeks, so plan accordingly I swap out quickly, so make sure that your inchies are in my hands by January 19.
