Sounds like a topic to me.
My advice....Get a 1 inch punch. Number one on my list. I tried it without, and that made inchie making a real pain. Not to mention using the finished Inchies for anything. I have mine glued down in a grid pattern on a canvas. While putting them in place, the ones that were too big, too small or crooked didn't make the final placement.
The punch really makes a big difference. You can cut bases and backs that are all nicely uniform while watching TV - you don't even have to think about it.
