Advent twinchies

I participated in a swap during the year where I made twinchies as an advent calendar swap and received some back in exchange to open during the month… so here is the set I made.I started with 4×4 panels of watercolour cardstock and added some distress oxides in lots of different colours.Then I took a few at a time and stamped out the numbers for the advent calendar and started decorating them. I made sure that the numbers weren’t concurrent so that when sending off a few they wouldn’t be too similar to each other!Then kept going so that the colours would be mixed up in each batch (we are sending them in threes…And there were four squares leftover in case I messed one up!So here are the batches…Super happy with how they all turned out.Now for packing them and sending them.Each was to go in its own envelope and a little pack of goodies to accompany them… so I made 4×4 envelopes from a very old pack of paper.After making them all up I stamped the number for the front of them from the scraps…And stuck those on. I added the twinchies in to their relevant envelope and then added some goodies into each envelope before sealing them up.I sent each three off to the relevant partner for each month and then received in response mine which I opened throughout December.It’s been a lovely project to be involved in.And I just need to find a way to display these for next year! I’m thinking of making them into a decoration or set of somehow… any ideas gratefully received!Happy crafting!Catherine
