Twinchie Cube.

Take some cardboard and make a cube 2"x 2". Cover with pva glue and old torn up serviettes. Dry in airing cupboard over night.

 Next cover with design paper of your choice. This is autumn leaves on a brown background from a free pad in a magazine.

 Then select pictures as your background theme. These are from a pad by Crafty Individuals.
 Then away you go . Embellish to your hearts desire. Side 1 has  chain from an old necklace buttons and the base from an acorn.

 Side 2. Embroidered lace, odd bead, flower die shapes,string and a dried flower head.
 Side 3. Oddment of lace and interesting seed heads from the garden.

Side 4. Shrink plastic leaves made from a stamped image, string and ferns from the pond.
 The top. String bow, lace flower and a small pin with beads.
 My idea of Autumn on a box.
And just to show that 2 into 5 does go I would like to enter into the current

I have just stopped off and put the laptop up on the Pink & Decker so I can pop by and see you. This is gorgeous Mrs A! Soo much detail on this. Surprised you have time at the moment....some of us are busy trying to get the roof on before the heavens open!
Right now....where is the electric saw gone? Tally ho!

Great idea for using your wonderfully collaged twinchies, bravo

Sandra (Stamping For Pleasure) said...

Is this a prototype for summat in the playground?

It's gorgeous and dinky. Dunno how you managed to get so much stuff on it and still make it look wonderful. . . if I tried that . . . well, lets just say you'd laugh!

Thank goodness the roofs going up on the tree house, think we might need it.

Heavens above, Mrs A, how did you get all that prettiness onto one tiny cube? And super pretty at that! However, one of us needs to take an Ishihara test and given that a failure to see purple as purple seems to be a family trait I don't think it's me! Hugs, Lesley
