New Twinchies.

Hi All,
Have had a little play at making some Twinchies, the first ones made with up cycled materials ......so free!!  Had kept some corrugated packaging and bits of string for ages now so thought I would make these Twinchies from it. A brilliant Martha Stewart butterfly punch went through it like a knife through butter!! so was pleased with that too as it was the first time I had used it, Hopefully these are self explanatory. The white covering is PaperArtsy Snowflake paint watered down. So here they are .....
Pink Butterfly
Lavender Butterflies.
A Natural Trio Creation.
A Natural Duo.
Lilac Creation.
The next set are not butterflies but Bees. The challenge I am entering in calls for either, so had a lovely £1 bee stamp I wanted to try and some free download background paper. Here they come......
Isn't he just the chubbiest Bee!!! ....with stitched edging.
Just BEE confident.!
Beelieve inyourself!!!!Butterflies and Bees 
Well hope you enjoyed having a peek at these. I will be entering them in
Happy Crafting till next time!!
Carol xx
