Inchies at Gingersnap Creations
Anyway, I'm back in time to have a little fun with Gingersnap Creations.... the new challenge is Inchies. I saw some 1" wooden cubes in our big box store the other day, and inspiration struck.... how about some inchie dice? This is a fun idea to make and have sitting around on an end table or desk... just roll the dice and you have a revolving art display. I must confess, originally I had planned on showing you about 6 dice.... but that's 36 inchies.... I'm not quite there yet, LOL!
The technique is really simple - just make your inchies to your heart's content, then use gel medium or Modge Podge or some strong craft glue and adhere them to the cubes. I did 5 sides at a time, leaving everything to dry before sticking the 6th one down. It's kinda nice if you keep a theme or a color scheme in common, but there's lots of room for creativity here if you're tired of making your inchies into cards. I used stamps, clip art, vintage text, vintage music, embossed images, paper flowers, and even a little bling (it makes them sit a little unevenly, but I'm okay with that). I'm thinking of making a Hallowe'en themed set, then if I'm not inchied-out, I'll try for Christmas.:)
Hope you can play along at Gingersnap Creations.... all you need make is one teensy tiny little piece of art. ;)
I'll leave you with one more pic of the dice in a different arrangement. Have a great Wednesday!
