What a fun challenge this is! It is so funny that the theme today was Inchies at Created by Hand because I was just getting ready to make some new ones after adding one to my Childhood piece. I decided to make the Serendipity 1" squares, and this is how I made them. I took a piece of white card stock and using acrylic medium as glue, I randomly added various papers, a few stickers, and some small images to the card stock until it was completely covered. I used my heat gun to dry, and then I added some glitter glues to some areas. At this point you could also add some stamping over the background. Next, I measured and started making one inch wide strips, and then cut the strips into one inch squares. This made way over 100 squares, and I have some of them in the photos. I could come back now and even further embellish individual ones that I like. The squares can be added to a collage whenever you are needing to add a little something extra, or you could even use a strip as a border. Hope you like these!
