I am in a Facebook group that swaps inchies/twinchies/ATCs/ATCoins/etc. with all of the members being in the UK. I love that they are quickish to craft and I love that the postage costs are low, so I can join in with a few more swaps than I would be able to afford if they were international swaps. Each month there are a range of swaps that you can sign up for, with different themes.
One of the swaps this month is for Hearts and Flowers Twinchie and these are my finished twinchies. I am really happy with how they came out.
For these I used a background that I had painted and cut into twnichie and inchie bases, ready for future swaps
I hadn’t planned to use these originally for these twinchies, but decided I wanted to get away from the pastel colours I would usually sick to for anything with hearts and/or flowers.
The hearts were all cut from washi tape stuck down to card and cut out - a few of them I decorated with metallic sharpies, but as I picked 4 at random for these, only one ended up being used.
The corrugated card strips were torn from a disposable cup holder. I don’t get much of a chance to save these anymore, since I started carrying an reusable coffee cup! But I love to use random bits and pieces in my crafting - it does drives hubby mad though, that I collect these odd bits and pieces.
