Inchie Tree




I am so excited about this little inchie tree! I first saw one of these at Linda's blog. As I've accumulated a few inchies through Joanne's inchies swap I thought it would be a wonderful way to show them off. The fact that these inchies are made by different women from all over the world is equally exciting.
I simply punched a 1x1 square from a sheet of acetate to back the inchies. That way when I made a small punch at the top for the wire hanger, it wouldn't rip or pull through. And that way the back stays clear so you can see the name of the artist on the back.
This will not necessarily come down with the Christmas decorations. I'm thinking of just leaving it up. Wouldn't it be fun to decorate with different inchies for the different holidays?
