Mel's twinchie challenge

Prior to the Bloggers Weekend.....Mel set us all a challenge......to make 16 identical twinchies to bring along so that everyone would have one made by everyone else.
A twinchie [in case you're unfamiliar] is a 2 inch square work of art......so we could cut 16 from one piece of 8 x 8 card.......I have to admit I find working this small quite difficult.....so went for something very simple!!
Mel sorted them all into piles and we all ended up with the 16 different ones......she then gave us a tutorial on how to make a mini album from 12 x 12 card to keep them in......but I decided I wanted to put them in my 2013 album......and I've made a simple page with them all.....though actually they would have made a wonderful piece of wall art.
I love having this permanent reminder of everyone who was at the Weekend......thanks for a great idea,Mel.

Your twinchie project is fab, Jacky.

I tried "INCHIES" but they were just too small a medium for me! Twinchies I MIGHT try though - have you tried MOOS?

I recently did 55 inchies - for my 55 B-D - and framed them. I wanted something that capture my creative spirit to commemorate this stepping stone in my life. But I am liking the twinchies, so now must muse and decide what I'm going to do with some twinchies. By the way, thsi is a great gathering/sharing idea.

Dang, pressed the 'enter' key too quickly. Here's my blog - scroll just slightly, and you'll find pictures of my framed inchies. Leave your comments and let me know what you think. Thanks for looking.

Oh I'm glad I scrolled down to see if you'd posted about the weekend.

How fun to see them all together - and useful for those of us who can't remember what we made! :rofl:
