Gift Tag Inchies

The Fiskateers had another big crop last week.  One of the challenges asked us to lift these inchies.  (An inchie is simply a piece of artwork that is one square inch.)

I loved the use of letters in the inspiration piece and decided to make inchies that could be used as gift tags.  I started with laser-cut stickers from Mrs. Grossman's, which I put on 3/4-inch squares.

I chalked over the top of the stickers.  (Part of my ongoing effort to use my chalks!)

Next I peeled off the sticker to reveal the white letters:

And then I sprayed them with 'fixative' (aka hairspray).

I matted the letters with 1-inch squares, added some rhinestones, and then attached them to ribbon.  Instant gift tag!


  1. Very cool technique! Love these Cindy! :):):):):)

  2. I am loving the inchies. Love how you used the the chalks. I have some ugly letter stickers that would make great masks, thanks for the reminder to use them :)

  3. How cute! What a great way to use up alpha stickers! :)
