Hello everyone!!  Winter is upon us here finally in Minnesota and I thought it would be the perfect time to share some Winter Twinchies with you.

If you are new to twinchies, I'll offer a quick explanation as to what they are.  Twinchies are 2 inch by 2 inch squares that you decorate as you wish.  They are a lot of fun to create.  I find they are fun to do when you've lost your crafty mojo.  They can jump start your creativity! 

Here's my Winter twinchies that I made for a swap.

I used some Pink Paislee paper as my base.  I love the ledger look of it!  Since Winter was the theme, I chose to add a snow flake to it.  I did have some smaller snowflakes that would have fit completely on the 2 inch by 2 inch square, but I really liked the big snowflake and the way it looked by just showing a portion of it.  The snowflake die is from Papertrey Ink.  Once I got my snowflake cut on my Cuttlebug, I used some Dune ink by Color Box to ink edges of both the snowflake and ledger paper.  I applied some Beacon 3 in 1 glue on the snowflake and applied it to the ledger paper.  Once that was done, I cut some red and white twine and tied a bow.  Simple!!!

If you have never tried twinchies, give them a go!  They can really be fun!
