Over at “Out of a Hat Creations” the challenge this week is to make a Twinchie to use by itself or added to a project.  A Twinchie?  I was asking “what the heck is a Twinchie”?  Well of course 😉 it is a 2″ x 2″ Inchie.

I have made a very simple Twinchie and added it to a Corner Bookmark.

Here’s what I did (and I have made all the measurements in inches seeing as it is a “Twinchie” challenge):

What you will need –

  • 1 piece of 2″ x 2″ card
  • 1 piece of 1¾” x 1¾” designer paper
  • 1 piece of 4″ x 4″ contrasting card
  • 1 piece of 2¾” x 2¾” designer paper
  • 8″ strip of ribbon
  • edge punch
  • foam tape and ds tape
  • embellishments as desired (I used an art tile from Prima)

To make the twinche take the 2 x 2″ card and layer with 1¾ x 1¾” designer paper.  I then traced around the tile and cut out a square so that the tile could sit down into the twinchie.  I put foam tape on the back around the tile.

For the bookmark, take the 4 x 4″ card and mark the centre of 3 sides.  Score from the 2 sides to the top then fold to the back.  Next, punch a decorative edge along the bottom.

Cut the 2¾” x 2¾” designer paper in half diagonally.  Attach 1 piece to the front of the bookmark and the other to the back.  Add the ribbon around the centre of the bookmark (place the join in the ribbon in the centre front so the twinchie will cover the join).

Attach the Twinchie to the front and you’re ready to use it with your favourite book (not 12 Shades of Grey is it?) 😉

Hope you enjoyed this little project.

Bye for now,
