Create Your Own Inchie Book

I took the Inchie Book Challenge 

How to create Your 
Own Inchie Book:
  • I first punched out 10 squares using a 1" square punch.
  • Next I punched holes using a 1/8" hand held punch through the cover and then used the cover as a template to punch holes through each of the pages.

  • I then wound copper wire around a paint brush to create the coil for my book. I found the paint brush wasn't quite big enough so I then spiraled the wire around  a pencil and that was a much better size.
  • Next I inserted it through all the pages and holes I had punched then crimped the ends so it wouldn't come back out.

  • I finished my book by embellishing it with charms I hung off the wire binding and also added a mini domino bead to the cover and added the word create and sealed it with Crystal Lacquer(see image above).
