make it small

Today is a new Sparkles Monthly challenge

the theme this time is

'make it small'

Any of these suggestions -
 Inchies/Twinchies/ATCs, Bookmark, Gift card Holder, Postcard, Fat Page, Card less than 4"sq.,  earrings,  Gift Tags, whatever, as long as it is SMALL

I found ATCs (artist trading cards which are 3.5" by 2.5") early this year, they are different from greeting cards in that you make them to swap with others and it is quite addictive especially as once you have made and swapped ATCs you find yourself making ATCoins (2.5" round), twinchies (2" square) and the tiny inchies (1" square)

You can find groups on Facebook which organise monthly swaps and you can also have your own album for swapping

so for this challenge I have made a Christmas ATC

The Santa is stamped, coloured and cut out, the stocking is die cut which I was given in a swap and I added a twine loop

I 'made' the Christmas lights with 3D enamel effect in various colours

So have a look at Sparkles Monthly Challenges and make your own small project to enter

see you there

I am also linking this ATC with

Pearly Sparkles- Merry Christmas
